No glamour here-- the Wet & Wild packaging is pretty cheap-- but this is a lovely lippie nonetheless. Although I'm pale and have red hair (which would seem to contraindicate a dark plum lipstick), Black Orchid is chameleon-like in its charms. I can't apply it full strength, as it is a very deep wine bordering on black, but it has interesting berry undertones that come out when you apply it more lightly. I especially like it over nude lippies that are a bit too pale; it "reddens" them nicely. Whoever compared this to Clinique Black Lily is right. It is the same sort of intriguing shade that makes you want to experiment with different liners, glosses, etc. for a myriad of fun looks! Can't beat the price, either!
