MAC – Seriously Hip

This one was swapped to me, so you’re probably tired of seeing greens, but I had to try it as soon as I got it!

This is another olive metallic vampy green like China Glaze Wagon Trail and Chanel Or De Russie. Since I had established that the Or De Russie was a lot more lustrous than the Wagon Trail, I just compared this one to my Or De Russie.

You can see that they are both rich and pigmented, more than Wagon Trail, but the Or De Russie is a little more of a brownish earthier tone than the Seriously Hip.

I’m going to swap the MAC and keep the Chanel!

Chanel – Or De Russie

I finally got this one in the mail! I was actually a little disappointed.. I thought it was going to be more brown, I think.

It actually is an olive green that is just like China Glaze Wagon Trail, but with a richer shimmer.

Here it is:

I put Wagon Trail on my thumb, so I could compare them. The color really is exactly the same, but I prefer the luster that the Chanel has.

I’m probably not going to keep the Chanel, since this one was so super expensive. If its not my favorite color that I’d wear all the time, like Cosmic Violine, I might as well stick with the cheaper version.

I also have MAC Seriously Hip which is also really similar! Maybe I’ll compare those three in another swatch.
