Essence - I'm a Marine Girl (50's Girls Reloaded Trend Edition)

I found a blue one, I found it! Actually, it was a gift from my sweet SO. :) Thank you, honey! :*


Essence, I'm a Marine Girl, 2 coats

Isn't it pretty? Of course, once I applied it, I immediately start thinking - ''I wonder if this one beats my all time favorite blue shimmer from Catrice in It Blue My Mind.'' I know you'd ask the same question...


Both are so nice, it's a crime not to buy them if you get a chance. Both are two coaters, have close to perfect formula and great flat brushes. Catrice looks a tad darker though. It's also glossier and 'deeper'. It remains my #1 navy shimmer.


Thanks for looking and commenting!

  4. Zelo lep lak.
    In dobra primerjava z Catrice. Drugače pa je od teh modrih tud meni najbolj všeč It blue my mind.

  9. Predivno izgleda. :)
    Ja imam previše ovakvih nijansi koje izgledaju 99% isto pa sam ovaj lak preskočila.

  11. Wow, i like the Catrice one more, but i thought the Essence one would be perfect for me, maybe i should buy the Catrice one too :D

  12. Wow, I love both of these. Not to sound like an ungrateful American, because I totally know that we get tons of polishes here, but I really wish Catrice was sold here. I have a swap buddy that can get them, but still... it would be so amazing to me to get to see them in person before choosing colors!

  19. Definitely going hunting for "it blue my mind" on my september vacation!

  20. V Ljubljani/Kranju jih je praktično nemogoče dobiti - laki od cele kolekcije so stalno razprodani, grrrr.

  21. I have this polish, and I think it's pretty! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't have them (yet!) but I love em both! Beautiful on your nails!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have a blue like this too and it's heaps gorgeous, shame that it looks really tacky (as a colour) on my hands. I solve it by using it as a french with silver and some rhinestones :)

    You have a lovely blog, keep it up!

  24. joj, moram ovog dobit 0_o

  25. They really are close! Blue is not my fav polish color so I bought just the grey one from this collection (and I really like it). Kudos to your kind BF!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would say they are dupes (at least in the pics the shades look very similar). Wish I have found it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your BF is a definite sweetheart. Good choice of polish. This is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Man, that is a gorgeous polish! Though I gotta admit, the Catrice does show it up a bit. :)

  29. Sama nisem velik ljubitelj modrih lakov ampak ob tej slikici me je pa malce stisnlo pri srčku, ker sem na žalost zamudila celotno kolekcijo (želela sem si predvsem lakce in kakšno modro črtalo), me pa veseli da si našla tako dober približek in kar je še najboljše je to, da imam tudi sama It blue my mind v svoji zalogi (edini modri odtenek in je fenomenalen) :)

  30. I like It Blue My Mind better :) .
