Green Shimmer Comparison

Woohoo! My stash is finally getting to the point where I can do comps! No surprise that my greens got there first. ☺ First, the players:
We have China Glaze Outta Bounds*, Rimmel Camouflage, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Emerald City, Zoya Suvi and Sinful Colors Gorgeous.
In the same order as above, from thumb to pinky. I used two coats for Outta Bounds and Camouflage, and three coats for the rest. The truest green is Emerald City, for sure, but Camouflage and Outta Bounds are close. I included Gorgeous as a teal, just to show that the rest are not as blue as they might seem. It is definitely much bluer IRL than even Outta Bounds. Suvi stands apart, because it is technically a charcoal base with green shimmer.
So, the big question - do you need to own all of these? Well, if you're a green freak, then definitely! They're not in the least bit dupes of each other. But, if you could only have one, personally I would pick Camouflage, because the shimmer just draws me in. It almost leans into the duochrome realm - it has a subtle, barely there hint of blue that just fascinates me. If one were to study it closely (who does that?LOL☺), it almost appears that the base is tealish and the copious shimmer is bright leaf green and gold.
Hope this helps some of you out! If you enjoy comps, let me know - I'm always happy to do them.

*Disclosure: China Glaze Outta Bounds was sent to me for review.

  1. My favourite is Emerald City. I think of it as the perfect green. I wear it all the time because it's a true green.
