All of the sample compacts come in different colors, so mine is just a very loud one-off, but the more I look at it, I would have preferred a blue or green tone more in keeping with the beachy, watery theme of the box. It's a very, very loud pink. The snap closes firmly, so I'm not worried about it popping open in my purse and getting scratched, and I appreciated the protective film that came on the mirror itself, though it left a gummy film behind that was a bit hard to clean off. A more mature color palate would have been appreciated overall, though. It's excessively, shimmeringly, alarmingly, eye-poppingly PINK. The kind of thing your coworkers suspect your borrowed from your tweenaged daughter. The green that's shown in the product blurb is much more appealing - and appropriate, once you're my (admittedly older) age.
