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: China Glaze Grape Pop vs. KBShimmer Pansy-Monium!
KBShimmer Pansy-monium is originally from the Spring 2014 collection and I bought the China Glaze awhile back so I’m not sure what collection it was from. Photo shows two coats of each polish & Out The Door top coat. KBShimmer Pansy-monium is on the pinkie & middle finger and China Glaze Grape Pop is on the ring and index.
Verdict: Both have a formula on the thinner side but the KBShimmer’s is a touch better than the China Glaze. Color-wise….near exact dupes. If we’re splitting hairs I would say that Pansy-monium is just a touch warmer than Grape Pop but even for purple lovers I don’t think they are different enough to own both.
What do you think about this comparison? Let me know in the comments!
