Hi there! As I told you Sunday I'd show you the comparison between China Glaze Ruby Pumps and Catrice Lovely Sinner from the Welcome to Las Vegas Trend Edition.

First things first, these aren't dupes! They do show similarities though:
1. They are red.
2. They are jellies.
3. They have glitter.
4. They need 3 coats.
5. They need topcoat to be really pretty.
6. That's about it.

The differences are:
1. The amount of glitter is sparser in the Catrice.
2. While CG Ruby Pumps is more of a true red at the first coat, the Catrice is definitely more fuchsia.
3. Because there is more glitter in CG Ruby Pumps, it also provides more sparkle and depth.

So, no dupes. But are they worth having both? I think so. I love sparkly reds and the Catrice is just a bit more subdued making it also less in your face. Could come in handy sometimes!


  1. I can't get CG for a nice price so Catrice shade is close enough and beautiful so I really have to have it 

  2. It really is a good substitute if you can not get the real thing :).

  3. Thanks for this comparison! I do have the Catrice polish but after seeing your photos I feel I need Ruby Pumps as well - it looks so much sparklier and opaque... Will add this to my wishlist :)

  4. Very pretty color!! Great comparison! 

  5. The Catrice looks a lot like Avon Ruby Slippers.

  6. Yes! China Glaze Ruby pumps is the grown sister version of the Catrice one :). And you are welcome!

  7. I am not familiar with Avon polishes at all, but judging on swatches I'd say the Catrice may be a tad darker :).
