Our reader kokola reminded me a while ago of a nice shade I had in my stash for quite some time now. It’s Kismet Elated from Sinful Colors. Kokola commented, that this shade is similar to Gosh’s Carmine. I had to see it for my self. My conclusion is, that they are only similar, way off from being dupes.
I didn’t make side by side comparison to Gosh’s Carmine. I’ll try to do it in the future. I can tell you that Carmine isa red-pinkish color and Kismet Elated is more on the purple side. Both have a lot of gold shimmer and that’s why they look almost orange from certain angles. For refreshing your memory, that’s how Carmine looks like…
I bought my Sinful Color’s from Cherry Culture. They have special offers, like “everything in the store 20% off”, quite a lot. So waiting and patience pays off.
