This really is a true lilac, it isn't too pink and it isn't too dark, it is the most gorgeous pastel purple I have! In terms of dupability I really am not sure, this is lighter and more pastel then Eyeko Lilac and Elf Lilac, but more true purple and less pink than Revlon's Lilac Pastelle, which was far too pink and in general pretty rubbish! . This needs a good 3-4 coats to get it opaque and even, but it dries pretty quickly, so it's not really all that time consuming to do. The brush on my one has little sticky out bristles which is annoying, but not a problem, it doesn't affect application too much. . The name of this polish is really random, but the colour is just so pretty and lovely! And it is a glossy and quick drying shade that is awesome for spring, I am wearing it now!
