The Mighty Zeus!

I absolutely love this shade! It's the perfect dusty lavender/periwinkle. And the fact that it has an amazing pink shimmer makes it one of my new favorites.

Sinful Colors Zeus

Zeus was part of the LE Sinful Colors Cast Away Collection that came out a couple of months ago. I managed to grab the last bottle of Zeus in the display! Sinful Colors is coming out with some really great colors lately, although I wish so many weren't limited.

When I first saw Zeus, I thought it might be a dupe of another color I own, Zoya's Lotus. They are similar-- both dusty purples with pink shimmer/sparkle, but as you can see below they are definitely not dupes. Lotus is darker, & less saturated, with redder hues, and the flecks of shimmer are larger and have some gold as well. However, the color I think it *might* be a dupe of is a limited CVS exclusive shade from Nicole by OPI, Back to Reality...TV. You can see it here on The PolishAholic's blog. ♥

Zoya Lotus vs Sinful Colors Zeus

The next day I added a coat of KleanColor's Chunky Holo Bluebell and Chunky Holo Black on my ring finger-- I love the way the shifting colors look against Zeus!

I'm really glad I was able to snag this one, especially for such a great price!
