Bordeaux is a reddish plum with a cream finish. It was opaque after coats of polish, and the consistency was on the thinner side, but it wasn’t problematic during application. When I wore it, this shade didn’t chip for seven days but had more tip wear than I usually see after a week. It has a very fruity, grape candy scent–very synthetic and jammy. Dior Graphic Berry (LE, $24.00) is darker, cooler-toned. China Glaze Traffic Jam (LE, $8.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Guerlain Madame Batifole (860) (LE, $23.00) is slightly brighter. Chanel Suspicious (P, $27.00) is pinker. Butter London Blowing Raspberries (P, $15.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.
