Are They Dupes? Revlon Downtown vs. Color Club Luminescent

Revlon Downtown - Index and Ring finger
Color Club Luminescent - Middle and Pinky finger
Revlon, Color Club, Revlon, Color Club
 In my Color Club Foiled post, one of my readers mentioned that she passed on the Color Club collection because she had picked up the Revlon Edgy Elegance collection already.  I too had picked up one of the Revlon's and noticed the theme was similar.  The only polish I purchased from the Revlon Edgy Elegance collection was Downtown, the light blue foil.  The corresponding polish from the Color Club collection was Luminescent.

 As you can see in the pictures above, the two colors are far from dupes.  The overall appearance of the Revlon is bluer, while the Color Club leans silver.  The Revlon is more of what I consider a foil, while the Color is almost a metallic.

I don't actually like foils that much, do you?  Give me a shimmer over a foil any day!
