I've been terribly busy for the past several days, thus had no time to post, comment on your posts or just about anything else, sorry for that. Today I have an old classic China Glaze to show you - Midnight Ride, was a part of the legendary Rodeo Diva collection back in 2008 but I think it is still easy to find. Or not? I have no clue where to look for the list of the current China Glaze core line.
Anyway, this is the darkest possible purple you can imagine before it becomes black. It is still purple though, but in low lights you can't really tell that. It has a very fine shimmers, doesn't appear too shimmery in finish, only so much to prevent it from looking absolutely flat. And I kind of like that, probably my favorite type of shimmer.
Here I only have 1 coat, no top coat. Excuse a bit rushed application. It is really so pigmented that one coat is enough to cover completely without bald spots. Formula is nice, not too thick and dries fast.
After these pics I did add a tc over it to prolong the wear. I even managed to take one semi-successful sun photo, where you can see the shimmer a little better.
I do own bunch of dark purples and comparing them in the bottles - this one is most definitely darkest of them all. I'll try and make some comparisons in the near future. As to whether I recommend this or not - well, I am sure everyone has something similar, and those little potential differences are definitely not visible on shades like these, but if you are passionate about dark purples, go right ahead. Me? I could have definitely lived without it, yet I still like how it looks on me, so no regrets. Oh, and it's supposedly a much cheaper alternative to Chanel's Vendetta.
That's it for today, thank you for stopping by!
