Tropical Express #4 is a medium purple with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer coverage, did not build up well, and had a drier, almost chalky texture that was difficult to blend out in an meaningful way. It wore well for six and a half hours before fading (from what I could tell).
