reds, especially dark reds take a long time to develop. Color whatever it is you're working on (bc? ri? fondant?) and wait a couple of hours, then add more color if needed. There's nothing instant about working with reds, or dark colors in general.

You can get reds and dark colors instantly if you use Chefmaster Liqua Gel color.

Buttercream takes the longest of the 3 types of icing to get the deepest colors.
Coloring icing - expecially deep, dark colors -shoud be done at least the night before so the color has time to develope.
Chefmaster Liqua gel colors are good, but not easily available to all.

Leah's right, it gets darker after a few hours.
