Deep Purple is a blackened purple with subtle, warm brown undertones and a dusting of plum micro-shimmer. It had a very pearly sheen–not quite a frost but more than a satin. It had nice color payoff, and it applied smoothly. Disney Wonder by Wonder is lighter. Illamasqua Queen of the Night is lighter. MAC Spellcaster is more matte. Giorgio Armani #3 is more metallic.
