Bordello is described as a "pale mauve shimmer with gold micro-glitter." It's a pinky-plum with warm undertones and copper sparkle. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was noticeably chunky due to the amount of glitter in it. It applied well enough, but it's a shade you'll want to apply before any base products as it drops a lot of glitter during application and some more during wear.
