Nubar – Chocolate Coffee Bean vs Rasberry Truffle

I wanted to find these two compared since they are both shimmers, but when I couldn’t, I ordered them so I can do it myself!

In all of the pictures, Chocolate Coffee Bean is on the left and Raspberry Truffle is on the right.

In indirect light, look how different they look… it looks like brown and purple, pretty distinctly!

When they are on the nail, they don’t look brown or purple.. they look really dark, almost black. Raspberry Truffle almost look like its black base with red wine sparkly shimmer, and Chocolate Coffee Bean looks like super dark brown with a hidden purple shimmer.

The shimmer is much more visible in the Raspberry Truffle. If you aren’t in direct light, you only see the shimmer on the Raspberry Truffle, its such a pretty wine reddish burgundy shimmer that really pops!

If you hold the bottles in the sun, they look so different from either of the top two pictures, and the shimmer almost looks the same.

I think I like the Raspberry Truffle better, and I didn’t think I was going to!


3 Baby Pinks

I wanted to try 2 other baby pinks that seemed a lot like Color Club Vintage Couture. So I got Nubar’s Hotel Baby Pink and their Baby Pink.

Sorry about the horrible quality of swatches I get at night, I have to learn how to handle the lighting in here!

This is Color Club Vintage Couture on the left 2 and Nubar Hotel Baby Pink on the right two:

I can’t tell them apart at all. If I look really really closely, the Vintage Couture looks a tiny bit pinker and the Nubar a tiny bit whiter, but its not noticeable at all. You could walk around with these 2 different colors and no one would be able to tell!

Then on my middle two fingers, I tried the Nubar Baby Pink, which is a little more of a peach-ish tone. I still left the Vintage Couture on the pinky and the Hotel Baby Pink on the index finger.

The more I tried to correct the light in this picture, the more it made them look the same, so I just left this one as-is, so you can at least see the color difference…

What do you girls do when you swatch at night? How do you handle the lighting and your camera throwing off the colors?
