Virgin Isle Vs Rich Coral Cream Colour Base (Photos + Swatches)

Hi ladies,

The awaited comparison is here!

Virgin Isle Vs Rich Coral Cream Colour bases by Mac


In the pan they look very similar but...
Are they dupes?

Let's see the swatches:
Virgin Isle
-It's a more neon pinky coral.
-It's brighter
-You need the tiniest amount to get a nice effect
-It has been discontinued in the UK but I believe is a PRO colour in the US.


Rich Coral
-It's a more orange coral
-It's bright but not on your face as Virgin Isle
-It's a permanent colour (it could be PRO)

So, What do I think?
It is the closest you can get in terms of Cream Colour Bases but it's not a 100% dupe.
I'm comfortable with a 70% instead.

    I really love Virgin Isle, it&#39;s gorgeous - it looks far more pink and less red where you&#39;ve blended it into your skin. I may just have to pick this one up. I&#39;m not the hugest fan of cream blush, but I really like the colour!

    @Caitlin: This one is a CCB so they are a tad more thicker than a cream blush. You get the glowy effect anyway but they are better applied with fingers. X
