Remember I showed you NYX Sea Of Cortez? It has been a while, I know, but I remember promising you a comparison with Charla, since they seemed quite close. Well, they are close. The main difference is that Charla is a little more blue than Sea Of Cortez. Also, the NYX is a bit less opaque which gives the gold glitter more chance to shine through and that gives the polish more depth. Trust me, a non-polish-lover wouldn´t see the difference. And I have to say that in my pictures it isn´t that visible either. They are definitely similar enough to make it to my dupe list though.
I used 3 coats on both of them. Definitely prefer the Zoya brush. But the NYX isn´t that difficult to handle.
index and ring = Zoya Charla
middle and pinkie = NYX Sea Of Cortez
You can see the difference between these 2 best in the first 2 pictures. I recommend to enlarge them to see it a bit better.
In my opinion Sea Of Cortez is a little more beautiful. And it´s a very nice cheap alternative for all the other expensive Charla dupes (except for the Essence Choose Me of course, nothing can beat Essence prices).
Which of all the Charla dupes do you prefer?
Thanks for stopping by!
