Chanel La Romanesque (50) Rouge Allure Velvet ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a "magenta." It's a muted, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly full color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The color wore well for six hours and left a stain behind. It was very slightly drying towards the end for me.
