I ended up buying the entire Nubar Sparkles collection because it's glitter... but when I got it, I realized the obvious: it's just glitter. And they look a lot like other glitters I already own, namely the Color Club Glitter Vixen (which can be found at Ross for $8 per set). I didn't think any of them were going to be this dead on though:
Nubar Sky Sparkle on three fingers and Color Club Sexy Siren on one
Can you tell which one?
If you guessed index finger (the leftmost one), then you have sharper eyes than I do. They look like perfect dupes in person though they differ in application and in finish. The Nubar Sparkles I've tried so far are pretty gritty (not chunky but definitely gritty) while the Color Clubs are glossier. In this case, Sky Sparkle took four coats to opacity while Sexy Siren took three.
This one is much easier to see: the pinky (the rightmost one) is Tru Passion. Again, the Color Club was glossier while the Nubar was gritty. Tru Passion is also a smidge darker and the glitter is less uniform: there are some bigger and smaller chunks that makes it sparkle more than the Nubar Sparkle. Tru Passion needed four coats to opacity, Hyacinth needed three. I prefer the application for Hyacinth but I love the life that Tru Passion has.
So... $7.50 for one, $8 for the entire set of the other. I wonder which ones I would buy if I could do it over again...
