Comparison: Illamasqua – Wink, Essie – Lilacism, OPI – Done Out In Deco, China Glaze – Light As Air


Laura from asked in her comment to my Illamasqua Pastel Nails swatches and review post how close Illamasqua’s Wink is to OPI’s Done Out In Deco.

Here we go Laura, this is for you and for everyone who loves lavender cremes. :)


Illamasqua – Wink, two coats
Essie – Lilacism, three coats
OPI – Done Out In Deco, two coats
China Glaze – Light As Air, two coats




OPI’s Done Out In Deco isn’t a dupe for Illamasqua’s Wink. It is darker, warmer and more muted. The closest color to Wink I have is Essie’s Lilacism. Lilacism is an almost perfect dupe for Wink. Wink is just a tad more vibrant.

Thanks for looking and take care! :)

      This wasn’t my intention I swear! 😀 You made me buy H&M’s Liberty Girl a few days ago but I would never ever enable you back on purpose with other lavenders.. hahaha. 😀 *just kidding* <3
