Python is a medium-dark, reddish-orange-toned brown with a metallic sheen. It had so-so color payoff, as the texture was a little drier and stiffer to work with than the other frosted finishes in the palette. Too Faced Amaretto (P, $16.00) is lighter. Clarins The Essentials #9 (LE) is less metallic. Makeup Geek Blitz (P, $6.99) is lighter. MAC Her Cocoa #4 (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Sable (P, $15.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.
