strange crazy good kind of colour, and VERY hard to describe. Definitely an "English Rose" kind of look. Let's call it a rose, but one that is deep enough to be classed with the berry tones, yet warm enough that I can wear it. I'm around a NC20 or warm toned pale skinned redhead.This is almost cool toned on me. At first I was going to return it. It seemed to have a true fuschia pink cast to it, and the shimmer is silvery.BUTthen after 20 minutes it was looking like a lovely rose shade, and like nothing else I own. It warmed up enough that it looked really good on me. My lips didn't stand out like they would if I wore a blue red or a blue pink. They looked natural only better.But it isn't exactly a MLBB colour. It's not a nude, and I wouldn't put it with the brown toned pinks but it's extremely wearable.And comfortable on the lips. Mine are dry and flaky, so the fact that this feels moisturizing is another plus.Leaves a nice stain as it wears off. Wear time is medium, average, neither long (in spite of the name) or short. It's going in my permanent collection.I hate ugly lipstick tubes, and this is ugly, but the lipstick itself is worth putting up with the packaging.UPDATED to add: I tried the Kate lipstick line from Rimmel, and they gave me a rash, but this one never has.I hope they keep the old formulation going here, the formula and the colour are terrific. This remains a go to lipstick when I want a warm rosy berry toned red that suits my warm but pale redhead style skin. It and Nectarine by Estee Lauder are reds that look red but never shocking on my face. Kind of a quiet red.
