I was truly hoping for a deep, dark, black-purple…a hearkening back to my silly goth club days. Sadly, this did not deliver. 🙁 Sad panda I am. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a gorgeous color but I just…was hoping for so much more. The formula was great because it was very opaque in 2 thin coats. However, RBL’s formulas for me have been hit and miss – this was a miss. It took forever to dry.
