I adore this colour, it is a dark, cool berry shade and has a lovely glossy sheen. It reminds me a little of Edward Bess Night Romance but I think Nocturnal is a few notches darker. The lipstick formula is soft and easy to apply. I didn't realise how wobbly my lines were before looking at the close ups. I'm sure this could be easily corrected applying with a lip brush but I rather like applying this straight from the bullet. It's pigmented and lasts well. It did have a tendency to fade out from the centre so l would recommend having a mirror on hand for touch ups. It would be no embarrassment getting this lipstick out in public though. I love the outer casing and both the unusual bullet shape and the firm lid closure are nice features.
I'm so taken with this the second time round that I'm eyeing up other shades. I think some of the lighter colours would be great for everyday. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that these will feature in the Zuneta sale.
