Maiden is described as a “glittery magenta.” It’s a medium-dark magenta pink with subtle blue undertones and silver micro-glitter. It’s almost fine enough to be shimmer or sparkle, not so much micro-glitter even. The color payoff was good, and I didn’t experience fall out problems with this shade. Estee Lauder Violet Underground is brighter, pinker. L’Oreal Glistening Garnet is lighter, more metallic/frosted. MAC Moon Rose is very similar, but it doesn’t have glitter. NARS Caravaggio is darker, pinker. Make Up For Ever #52 is more purple.
