Described as a "warm chocolate brown," but I'd say it kind of leans toward a bronzey taupe, actually. The price tag does seem a bit high, but the color was mesmerizing. And LUSH's liquid eyeliner does technically come with more product inside than your typical eyeliner, though I seriously wonder how long it'll be useable or how much of the product you'll actually be able to get out of the bottle. The brush applicator is attached to the lid, which isn't very convenient. It easily frays and its difficult to get the right amount of product. This particular color applied fairly well--not as streaky or as sheer as some of the other liquid eyeliners from LUSH. However, I ended up returning this product to LUSH because it made my eyelids sting for awhiel when I applied it (even after it had dried completely). It's very rare that I have any sort of reaction to skincare or makeup products, and LUSH's salespeople had told me how soothing the ingredients were when I bought it--I don't know what's in this that was making my eyelids burn. The uncomfortable weird feeling did eventually stop, and I did try it a few more times with similar problems.
The salespeople said a few other customers had reported similar side effects. I'm going to steer clear of LUSH eye products. Stila and Urban Decay both make fabulous liquid liners that come in a rainbow of colors, with better pigmentation, and NO irritation.
