Dark Matte #5 is a muted, medium-dark plum with warm, red undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture felt a little soft and dry, so it had some powderiness to it, but it wasn't too difficult to apply or blend on the skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours. Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE, ) is more shimmery. MAC Deep Damson (P, $16.00) is darker. Laura Mercier Kir Royal (P, $22.00) is darker. Chanel Quadrille #1 (LE, ) is lighter. Sleek MakeUP Stallion (LE, $9.99) is darker, cooler. MAC Sketch (P, $16.00) is darker, more muted. Viseart Dark Matte #6 (P, ) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
