Zoya Mimi/ Zoya Julieanne Comparison

I plan on having a big comp post for the Wicked and Wonderful collections within the next few days, but I wanted to go on and do this one, as I specifically mentioned Mimi in my review of Julieanne. 

Of course, I have to do my usual "it's purple, so it's not color accurate" disclaimer, but I'm pretty sure you can still see the difference in the 2 colors.

Bottle on the left is Mimi.  Bottle on the right is Julieanne.

L-R: Mimi, Julieanne, Mimi, Julieanne.  Please enlarge to see detail.

As you can see, they are both purple and sparkly, and both have some form of golden shimmer, but after that, the similarities end.  Mimi has a grape base and more vibrant shimmer, whereas, Julieanne has a charcoal base and more subtle (though still sparkly) shimmer.  The golden shimmer in Mimi is more of a bright gold and the gold in Julieanne is more of a burnished gold.  Julieanne is a much more complex color than Mimi, but they are both beautiful.  Bottom line, if you love purples... yes, you need both.

I have mimi and was wondering too how they compare- I guess I have to get my hands on julieanne :D (and because the purple-addict inside of me tells me to ;) )

Thanks for the comparison! I am definitely a purple addict, so I'll probably be getting Julieanne at some point. :)

Even though I am a purple addict, I won't be getting both. I mean, who will really notice other than me?

Ashley, IRL, they are very different. Julianne is much deeper than Mimi, though they are variations on a theme. Julieanne is an amazing, complex color, but I think if I had to pick one of the 2, I'd go w/ Mimi, and save Julianne for the next Zoya exchange (if there is one).
