So I have ordered this twice now and even though it is sealed and labelled mauve, What is inside is what i think is Maroon.
Luckily I always spray a board first with a color before i spray the cake.
I would suggest Global checks its supply, you can kind of tell the problem without even opening the bottle, If you tip the bottle up and look at the neck of the bottle ppink colors are reddish inside, maroon is brown.
mauve is kind of a brown color though
what sort of color were you looking for? More pink? I've mixed airbrush colors quite successively, maybe you could mix something to tone it to where you'd like the color?
Americolor's regular gel color Mauve is also brown-ish with a pink undertone, but is not pink. You can get a "mauve" pink color by using the slightest amount. I had an issue with this as well. I was looking for an antique pink color and got a warm brown from the bottle. Not sure if there is anything to be done though with airbrush color....
I've mixed the rose pink into the mauve and got the color I usually attribute to mauve, sort of a dusty pink, purple, tannish color
see, I usually think of THIS color when I think of mauve not a lilac color
