EDIT 7/11/2012: This is showing up as a large side-end cap display at Walgreens now. Also, check out what looks like a press release that I found today --click here--
Rite Aid store display
I tried to tell myself that I didn't need them...that some were core colors (already had 1 of those) or extremely similar to core colors, but..... It started with the Clementine and Citrine. Citrine is supposed to be a dupe for Sephora + Pantone Tangerine Tango color. I bought a couple another time, and then again, and then the last one. Over the period of a week or two, I had ended up with all of the polishes.
Why Not #951, Let's Meet #926, Exotic Green #1105
If you look above the flash spot, you can see some of the shimmers in Let's Meet
NEW COLORS (all cream finishes):
Outrages, Clementine, Energetic Red, Dressed to Kill, Citrine
Outrages #1124, Clementine #1127, Energetic Red #1122
Dressed to Kill #1125, Citrine #1123
In my opinion, these are the close counterparts (core color first, collection color second):
- Cross My Heart #957 is slightly more red than Energetic Red #1122
- Big Daddy #850 is very close to Citrine #1123 (on the nail, I had a really hard time telling apart)
- Boom Boom #851 is slightly brighter/more pink than Outrages #1124
- Boom Boom #851 is about a 1/2 shade darker/brighter than Dressed to Kill #1125
And yes, I realize that Boom Boom is listed twice...it falls right between Outrages and Dressed to Kill.
I would say that of the 5 new colors, only 1 doesn't have a close counterpart in the core line--the lighter orange, Clementine. Click here for my alternative for Clementine from a different brand.
EDIT: It looks like this entire collection is similar to the Sinful Colors one:
