Vixen is an oldie, and what a goodie! This is a deep plum-brown-red, but it’s not completely blackened. I’m using the newer (single gold band) Revlon formulation, and I find that this requires three coats to even out properly. It’s not the end of the world; most vampy cremes I’ve used are the same. Vixen is lovely, luscious, and very classic. It’s not quite so dark as Chanel Vamp and Essie Wicked (two other vampy faves of mine), but it’s a great and inexpensive way to get a very similar look. Rating: 4/5.
