Magenta is a color that is variously defined as purplish-red, reddish-purple, purplish, or mauvish-crimson.

@Glitchy_XDD: pink is just a lighter shade of red, magenta is a mix of red and purple

yeah, its more red than purple. on the color wheel in our art class, magenta would basically be red-violet mixed with a bit of white.
