Hello darlings! How are you doing? I'm hungrrry! And while I'm preparing a quick lunch, I'm going to post the blue comparison I did the other day. First, a few explanations:
1. As you can see, there was no Sun when I was doing the comparison. But the more I think about it the more I feel the comparison shows the colours as they are most often. Nobody really stands on the sun whole freaking day. So these photos are the most colour accurate!
2. I feel I must apologize to Depend 204. Remember how I told you it looks black in normal light? Well, it doesn't. The contrast in sunlight and light in our house with strong sun outside made me believe it is. Actually the dark blue shimmer is visible on the normal light too. Very very subtile, but it's there. Thus, making me want it even more. Too gorgeous!
3. Teycha suggested Depend 204 looked similar if not the same as China Glaze Little Drummer Boy and Nail Crazy asked me to do a comparison with Catrice It Blue My Mind. To these two main comparisons I added SpaRitual Surreal and Etos number 19.
4. Picture heavy!!
5. Read the info under the pics.
Group picture. I turned Depend bottle on the side because the writing hides the colour completely.
The suggested/requested comparison.
The most colour accurate picture! I left it really really large, huge, really, for you to see all the details. So click to enlarge and see the details!
These two (upper&bottom) are taken on natural light outside.
The four colours without the thumb, to get closer look, upper lightbox, bottom natural light.
The only dupes in the bunch. Etos and Catrice, natural light, lightbox, sorry for the blurrines, I have no idea why it came out blurry. :S
Uf, lots of pics! Anyway. As you can see, neither Catrice or China Glaze come close to Depend 204, although Little Drummer Boy has the same type of shimmer, only it has more green in it, making it almost teal already. It Blue My Mind is much much lighter while Surreal remains black basically in all the lighting.
These were all two coats, although Little Drummer Boy needs one only! Others are two coaters. All were taken without TC so this one also shows how glossy they are. I encourage you to click on the pictures, because I left them really large for the sake of better shown details.
My favourite of the bunch? Depend 204. It's beautiful. China Glaze Little Drummer Boy a very close second, but I prefer the depht of Depend more. But all in all wonderful blues. The one I could skip on is Surreal, because it's too blackened for me. And this time it's for sure, I wore this baby the second time now!
I really hope you like the comparison, let me know, if I missed something, please! Teycha, what do you think, similar enough? And Nail Crazy, which one do you like more, Catrice or Depend? The rest of you, what do you think, which one is a keeper? Or do you need all of them? ;)
Thank you for reading!
