Revlon's Vixen is meant to be a dupe for Chanel's Vamp/Rouge Noir (you'll have to google the history behind that color). It is meant to look like dried blood, a nice dark blackened vampy red. It is actually more of a dark bordeaux than a red. If you read my Ins & Outs post, you'll see that I've really been into bordeaux colors lately and Vixen is no exception. The formula is a tad bit watery, though I only needed two coats for opacity. I used my CND Stickey base coat and my Diamond Dry top coat. It wore well, lasting 5 days before chipping.
