C3 (Norvina Mini Vol. 1) is a deep, pinky-red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a drier texture that was prone to emphasizing my lid/skin texture. The issue I had with this shade was that it erased shades under it, which made it difficult to work with since it created patchiness, did not adhere well, and never appeared true-to-color, even over primer. This shade lasted for eight hours and left a strong stain behind.
