Breathing Fire is a rich, deep magenta with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly but emphasized my lip lines as it was thin, clingy, and prone to settling into them. It lasted for five and a half hours but was drying over time. The bullet version of this shade is so much better and more comfortable to wear.
