Welcome to Dupe or No Dupe, the series where I pull out colors from my collection that look the same in the bottle and we find out if they’re the same….or just similar? Up today: Fair Maiden Polish Magic Carpet Ride vs. Indigo Bananas Immortal Game!
Fair Maiden Polish Magic Carpet Ride is originally from the Be Your Own Heroine collection and Indigo Bananas Immortal Game is originally from the Fiery The Angels Fell collection. Photo shows three coats of each polish & Out The Door top coat. Indigo Bananas Immortal Game is on the pinkie & middle finger and Fair Maiden Polish Magic Carpet Ride is on the ring and index. Of course, being green leaning blues, they already look quite different in the bottle shot on camera than they do in person.
Verdict: Immortal Game is a little thicker formula wise than Magic Carpet Ride but they both still have very wonderful formulas. The base color of Immortal Game is darker, more blue and less dusty than Magic Carpet Ride. The flecks are also heavier while Magic Carpet Ride has a more subtle look. Definitely NOT dupes, and different enough that even if you have a large collection, I think both would find a nice home within it. I feel a bit silly for having thought of the Indigo Bananas when I first saw the Fair Maiden come out!
