When I first got this color, I thought I got the wrong color. When I swatch my Sylvia, mines looked more gray purple creme [ a bit also like a bluish eggplant color] instead of the lilac purple creme noted on Julep website. I tried take multiple shots to show the color. Either way, it's a nice color to start the spring with. The color went on thick, shiny and smooth and lasted for a bit.
