Flashback is described as a "bright deep purple with pink sparkle." It's a meidum, violet purple with a soft, frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a slightly dry, but not powdery, consistency that could be helped by usage of a primer, as it didn't go on as evenly on bare skin. It started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear. MAC Sexy PB&J (LE, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Kat Von D Babe (DC, ) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).
