L'Oreal Passport to Paradise Collection

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    I have swatches of L'Oreal's Passport to Paradise Collection for you today, and found that they were very familiar.  On April 21, the news broke that L'Oreal was acquiring Essie, and it looks like L'Oreal took Essie for a test drive with this collection.  They're exact dupes for last year's North Fork Collection from Essie.

    High Tide is the light blue shimmer...

    ...which is an exact match to Essie's Sag Harbor.  My index and ring fingers are the Essie, the others the L'Oreal.

    Waters Edge (no apostrophe) is the turquoise creme...

    ...which matches Essie's Greenport.  Again, index and ring are Essie.

    Ocean Breeze is the blue creme...

    ...which corresponds to Essie's Shelter Island.

    Sorry I got a little sloppy on the last coat of Shelter Island.

    So we see these are all dead-on dupes.  I prefer both the brush and the price tag of L'Oreal, so if I had to choose which to keep, it would be the L'Oreals.

    If you want a fill review of the colors, you can just look back at the North Fork review - they're the same colors, so no point in making you endure a full review just to show you they're dupes.

    That's what I have for you this morning, Dear Reader.  Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
