Comparison Between Zoya Yasmeen and Zoya Valerie - The Cult Classic vs. The New Hotness

Move over Yasmeen, a new purple hotness is in town!

The second I saw Zoya Valerie I thought of Zoya Yasmeen, so I had to pull out my bottle of "Yasmine" (have they ever decided how to spell this?) and had to do a comparison for you:

Yasmeen (Left), Valerie (right)

Yasmeen (left), Valerie (right)
As you can see, Yasmeen is a purple with reddish shimmer. Valerie is a deep burgundy-purple base with gold and red shimmer. My gut reaction, in this case, was very wrong. Valerie might be a cousin to Yasmeen, but definitely not a sister. You're not getting "Yasmeen with a foil finish" in Valerie.

Go ahead and get both, purple lovers. You're not duping yourself!
