*Warning * I'm going to keep it short in words this time because I'm about to photo spam you.
Chanel Provocation was gifted to me by Tasha and I could not be happier with it. I have only ever purchased and owned one high-brand that I didn't end up liking it too much.
Swatch below is two buttery, thin coats of this creme with one coat of Seche Vite. The Chanel website describes Provocation as 'a deep, rich plum' colour but their picture shows a lighter, more purple colour. I had a bit of trouble taking colour accurate photos a couple of nights ago due to my lighting and was looking at this colour wondering whether this was a plum or a brown. I decided to wait unitl today to take the photos and I can now see the the plum in it.
This was a dream to apply and have no issues with it. I didn't apply any base coat and had to get remove the polish of one of my fingers due to a smudge, and it didn't leave any staining like most dark colours tend to leave behind.
