Instinct is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade had a much firmer press to it, which made it hard to get the product out of it and resulted in semi-sheer coverage. It didn't blend well, and I couldn't really get the color to build-up much either, as it did not respond well to layering. What little I managed to apply lasted for seven hours from what I could tell. Marc Jacobs Beauty Otherwise (PiP, ) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Rose Bud (PiP, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar).
