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 Santorini vs. China Glaze I Sea The Point!
Cirque Colors Santorini is originally from the Cirque Colors Poolside collection and China Glaze I Sea The Point is originally from the Off Shore Summer 2014 collection. Photo shows two coats of each polish & Out The Door top coat. Santorini is on the pinkie & middle finger and I Sea The Point is on the ring and index.
Verdict: Totally dupes. If I’m splitting hairs I Sea The Point may be a tooouch dustier in person but barely noticeable so I’m calling these dupes. Because Santorini was exclusive to the Nordstrom pop-in for that month, CG I Sea The Point is a good alternative if you aren’t able to track Santorini down secondhand, although Santorini had the better formula of the two and I Sea The Point was a bit too much on the thin side.
What do you think about this comparison? Let me know in the comments!
