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: Cirque Colors Doyers vs. Zoya Sooki vs. Barielle Miami Heat vs. OPI The Thrill Of Brazil!
Cirque Doyers was originally reviewed here and Barielle Miami Heat was reviewed here (the other two were older shades I owned and hadn’t swatched on the blog before). Photo shows two coats of each polish & Out The Door top coat. Barielle Miami Heat is on the pinkie, Cirque Colors Doyers is on the ring finger, Zoya Sooki is on the middle finger and OPI The Thrill Of Brazil is on the index finger.
Verdict: Formula-wise, they are all nice. The Barielle and the Cirque Colors have more of a thicker and almost jelly-like formula while the Zoya and OPI are more like thinner cremes. None are too thick or too thin, either. Barielle Miami Heat is definitely more sheer than the other ones. Color-wise, Miami Heat and Sooki are definitely dupes and Doyers and The Thrill Of Brazil are also dupes. All four are close enough that I don’t think you need another of these if you already have one in your collection. Unless, of course, you’re a member of the market that OPI is coming up with 83975378 red cremes for.
