NYX Carnival v. Happy Birthday v. Party of Five Glitters

Hello lovelies!

  So today I'll be showing you the awesome NYX Carnival. This is yet another dupe of the very popular Happy Birthday by Deborah Lippmann.

Carnival consists of Small and Large Hex glitters in Blue, Silver, Orange, Yellow, Pink and Green. This is also similar to Milani's Gems. This goes on very chunky. There isn't the issue where all the glitter wants to go to the tips with every brushstroke. For this I used Two coats of Carnival. I suggest clicking pics for details.

Here is Happy Birthfay, Pof5G and Carnival next to each other.

 I like all Three for different reasons. I think Carnival comes closer to Happy Birthday than Party of 5 Glitters. Pof5G has too much Silver glitter in it now that I see them all together. Nothing is quite as graceful as Happy Birthday though. I say it's good to have these dupes as back-ups since I really want my Lippmann to last as long as possible ($$$) :)

Thoughts lovelies?

  3. I love my HB from DL. :) I have a kind of a dupe too from Urban Outfitters but it doesn't come close enough. I'd like the one from Nyx if I can find it though. :)

  7. Yay!
    The only one missing in this comparison is Gems!
    But there is another difference between Pof5G and the other two...
    Besides the huge amount of silver glitter, Pof5G lacks of the gold ones!
    But they all look amazing!

  8. I love my Gems :) Po5 was a little too sparse on the glitter.. I feel like Gems was packed with glitter and it is close enough to HB that I don't need both.
