China Glaze – Peace on Earth vs NARS – MashTuesday, 16 November, 2010
While both formulas were excellent – quick drying and opaque in two thin coats, there was a world of difference between the colors themselves. See below for the comparison.
As always, click the thumbnails until they become huge.
Mash is more on the green side while POE has more yellow in it. Both were flattering on my skin, despite the warm undertone. Yay! Please excuse the big old chip on my pinkie finger. I had been wearing the color for a week and then remembered to take a picture.
Sunlight couldn’t really bring any real depth to the shade shot, but you can still see the difference.
Rescue Beauty Lounge No More WarThursday, 23 September, 2010
While some hatedÂ Rescue Beauty Lounge No More War, on me when I was wearing it, I liked it and didn’t really care what others said.
I didn’t count on posting 3 Rescue Beaty Lounges in a row, but in case you can’t tell I am a huge fan. Formula on this was a bit runny, but it was opaque in two coats. Please don’t mind the heavy handed application on the ring finger. Loved that this dried super quick. I was done in under half an hour – that’s pretty darn good.
I know a few bloggers who are not fond of shades like this. They call them ‘poo’ colors. I saw this and just thought, “What a pretty olive green this is…” I’m so glad that I totally scored Rescue Beauty Lounge No More War.
Now that you’ve seen Rescue Beauty Lounge No More War, do you feel like you’ve missed the boat on this? Will you be trying to find a way to get your hands on a bottle?
StrangeBeautiful, Volume I – Olive Green, MAC Dry MartiniFriday, 7 May, 2010
MAC’s formula dried quickly and was not opaque on the first coat. With the initial application it was kind of gross – it looked like…well, poo. I’ll stop right there and let your imagination fly.
Once again, SB’s formula is superb – flawless application, fast drying and opaque when it should be. Strange Beautiful would be my favorite brand, but the fact that they’re limited editions and don’t come out with nearly enough colors to appease me bumps them to the bottom part of my top 7 fave brands.
Enough of the rambling, on to the polish!
Oddly enough, this color looked fabulous on me!
This was a gorgeous color and I really liked seeing it on me. I didn’t put a top coat on this because I forgot to. I had been in a rush. Oops. Sorry it’s not as shiny and perty as it could be!
