The color turns out more red than the bottle suggests, but I love the outcome. It’s a nice balance between plum and wine, and is dramatic but not too dark against my pale skin. A reviewer at Makeupalley.com said the color turns out very much like Vamp. Also, the quick dry formula really does, and I managed to avoid bubbles even though I put on three coats.

A movie about the 1976 Paris Tasting that rocked the wine world? Starring Alan Rickman? Oh, yes please.
An old UK mini series about a secret part of the government that fights vampires. We’re half way through and the V-word hasn’t been used yet.
