Charlotte is a medium-dark, burgundy red with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but I noticed it was less creamy and not quite as substantial on the lips compared to the full-sized version--the mini felt "stiffer" (but not actually stiff). The lipstick lasted for over six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
