[Comparison] Mints

Finally my local dm had some of the new essence stuff, and I just had to try the mint one (No. 146 “that’s what i mint!”).  On the webpage it is marked as with glitter/shimmer. I hoped it would be a dupe for the old mint (No. 53 “you belong to me”) but feared it would be a dupe for one of their old “show your feet” colors, “iced mint frappé”.

Well, it is neither.

As you can see, it is still lighter than “you belong to me” but a bit darker than “mint candy apple” from Essie, while “iced mint frappé” has a touch more green.  The glitter/shimmer is barely visible in the bottle and even less on the swatches.

That’s not to say it isn’t pretty, and I love that color group very dearly anyways. So me = still happy. 🙂
