Monica is a dark muted blue-toned purple creme.
You know what I realized? There are a ton of red-toned dark and muted purples out there for fall. I honestly think they are overdone. It's a great color, but I have a lot of shades like that. What I realized is I did not have any blue-toned purple shades for fall. I have a few that are more spring-summery themed, but nothing that were more suited towards fall. Zoya Monica comes in..problem solved. This is a great color. It's rich and deep. The formula was great on this. I'm finding Zoya's formula to be consistently great over the this past year. I approve!
P.S. Whenever I hear the name Monica, I think of the singer Monica, and this song she did with Brandy. This takes me back to 7th grade. I can't believe this was 14 years ago!
