Rouge Trafalgar #3 is a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones paired with a satin finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges without losing its intensity. The texture was soft, a smidgen dusty in the pan, but easy enough to pick up and work with. This shade stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
