I'll be honest here, I wanted to love Nocturne more than I do. It's a gorgeous shade and I'll wear it until the tube is empty, but...it's not what I was expecting.
Nocturne is a rich raspberry shade infused with gold shimmer. Raspberry and I don't get along as a rule, mostly because I have a warm complexion and most raspberry shades I've encountered are cool-toned. I also prefer red lip colors to pinks, which is what I hoped Nocturne would be.
And yet, the gold shimmer looks lovely. I really like how Nocturne pairs with Tarte's Natural Beauty cheek stain, and especially how it looks when I'm wearing a shirt in a cooler color. I think it really is one of those shades that flatters both warm and cool complexions when worn with the right coordinating shades.
