some cases are better than others. a lot of them just dont keep their colours, try a different brand. (might also be your cake is an oily sort of one)
you can use the nut cups, but pretty sure they only come in white.

There are a couple of forums about cupcake liners losing their color. Basically, if you want your liners NOT to be greasy and to actually show the design, buy Reynolds or a brand that is grease-resistant or metallic.

I got some white grease-resistant liners at Smart and Final and boy, the difference is amazing. If I ever want pretty liners, I'll just have to suck it up and pay the Reyonds prices.

I double up on the liners if it's a nice design I want to show. Not as expensive as those wrappers.
