I LOVE this color. It’s just slightly deeper than your true red, but it doesn’t really lean brown or plum. Just….. VERY deep red.
I swatched some comparisons with my MAC lipcolors, to give an idea of where it falls.
EP is Eve Pearl, of course. D is MAC Dubonnet, S is MAC Spice it up, and P is MAC Party Line. As you can see, it’s almost an exact duplicate for party line. The color is just SLIGHTLY more red in Vampires kiss.
The big problem I had with this product is the wear. It bled, feathered, like NO other lipstick I’ve tried. It was creamy, and moisturizing as advertised, but it did NOT stay put at all! Even applying it straight from the tube was chancy, because it applied so glossily that it has a tendency to slide around and make it difficult to do a detailed lip line.
