It's super bright, super flashy, and quite metallic. Beautiful! Unfortunately, I dropped it on the way home and it was completely shattered! :'( I had another Nyx shadow in the same bag, which was completely undamaged, so maybe this color in particular is crumblier that the others, as other reviewers had suggested?
It's a great color, but it has too cool of a tone for me personally. But I think it would look quite dapper on someone less yellow than me. Very good for a pin-up look. I highly recommend Nyx lipsticks in general, and this is one of the best ones. It's a matte color, so a teeny bit drying, but not too bad.

Almost a Mac Sharkskin dupe. Beautiful color, really makes eyeshadow colors pop!
Pretty much Urban Decay's "Asphyxia" eyeshadow in a stick form. It's a cool lavender with a blue sheen; I think it's called duo-chrome? Whatever it is, I always wear it underneath Asphyxia as a base. Very pretty!
Pretty awesome product. It's a shimmery cool brownish-taupe color. I wear it either alone or with Prestige's "Golden Retriever". It never creases on me (but then again, nothing ever does). Also, it's a tad cool-toned, but I still think would look good on every skin tone. I'm incredibly yellow, and I think it looks great! :D
One of the most pigmented shadows I have ever used. I've never used it wet, but when dry, It's a dark, gunmetal silver with rainbow micro-shimmer. Just gorgeous :)
Ahhh, such a lovely color! I have sooo many lippies (almost 30, at last count), and this is my favorite. It's a cinnamon-ey brownish red. It's neutral enough for daytime, but bright enough for night. My words can't do it justice, so I posted a pick. It's a very warm color, so beware if you're cool toned, but on my medium yellow yellow yellow skin, it looks fabulous. Kind of expensive for drugstore, but they call Revlon "MAC of the drugstore" for a reason. Just lovely. I highly recommend it.

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! The best/most beautiful eyeshadow I've ever experienced, lol. Definitely my favorite shadow, and I have over a hundred (yikes!). It's a gorgeous gold leaf, not glittery at all, but rather so shimmery it looks wet and foiled on. If you only had time to put on one thing in the morning, this would be it.
The color is a warm rose. It's technically an eyeshadow, but works so much better for me as a blush, so for everyone out there who has this shadow but doesn't like how it looks on the eye, there are other ways of using it! On the eyes, it makes them look puffy because of the pinkness, but on the cheeks, it's a beautiful, shimmery gold rose blush. Just lovely :)

Not firetruck red like I thought it was going to be... :( Still, a pretty pretty shade. It didn't seem very "tomatoey" on me, as other reviewers have described, but rather a hot, pinkish coral. In general, I find that L'oreal lipsticks are creamy and sheer. I prefer Revlon lippies, which are much more pigmented, but not as moisturizing.
