Blushes amp similar colorsalmost dupes

3 years ago

So today I decided to swatch all (well most because I forgot some) of my blushes to see if I had dupes, but though they all look similar (mainly all pinks, lol), there was a different in some form or another. But did I find two that are similar, not quite total dupes.

The first is ELF`s Candid Coral ($3) and Rimmel`s "Mauve Cool". Mauve Cool is softer (which is more prone to breaking/shattering) and more pigmented. Candid Coral took a few extra swipes to get the same opaqueness as Mauve Cool. However, Candid Coral is slightly more on the coral golden iridescent side, whereas Mauve Cool is on the pink side with slight silver shimmer that is not quite that noticeable. I feel like Candid Coral may be similar to Nars Orgasm, yet I do not own that.

The other similar blush "dupe" that I found was with Wet n Wild`s "Heather Silk" and Revlon Cream Blush in "Berry Flirtatious". Obviously, the textures are different since the revlon one is a cream blush and heather silk is powder. But, Heather Silk is extremely pigmented with one swipe and Berry Flirtatious took two swipes to get a similar look. Heather Silk is similar, yet the hot pink color is more on the cooler, blue side and Berry Flirtatious is closer to the warm, pink side. On the cheeks, I`m sure they would look almost identical.
