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: OPI You’re Such A Budapest vs. KBShimmer Hugs & Wishes!
KBShimmer Hugs And Wishes is originally from the Fall 2014 collection, I bought the OPI awhile back so I’m not sure what collection it was from. Photo shows two coats of each polish & Out The Door top coat. OPI You’re Such A Budapest is on the pinkie & middle finger and KBShimmer Hugs & Wishes is on the ring and index.
Verdict: The KBShimmer definitely has a better formula, the OPI isn’t bad but is on the thin side. Color-wise, they are close but not dupes- Hugs & Wishes is a shade darker and doesn’t have the (very subtle, almost not even visible) shimmer that You’re Such A Budapest has.
What do you think about this comparison? Let me know in the comments!
