Color: Partridge Breast (Priti NYC)
Retail Price: $12.50 (USD)
This shade is from Priti NYC’s spring 2012 Sailing in Sardinia collection. It is a blue-tinged teal with bright green shimmer. It almost looks like a duochrome, but it’s really the green shimmer just doing its thing. Photos honestly don’t do this color justice! It is gorgeous, and completely reminds me of the sea.
The formula for this shade is so easy to work with. I expected application to be streaky since that’s been my experience with similar shades, but that’s not the case. In fact, when I was applying a second coat of this color, I could hardly tell the second coat apart from the first! All that basically means application is forgiving. In the photo above, I am wearing two coats of Partridge Breast.
Looking for a dupe? I was immediately reminded of Ocean (Revlon) and Megan (Julep). Megan is obviously too blue, but Ocean really is a close match. The difference is in the formula, though. Partridge Breast is really pigmented and applies fairly opaque, whereas Ocean applies incredibly sheer, and is pretty streaky. Partridge Breast is superior—no contest!
This color is great for spring and summer, but I honestly think it could transition to fall, and even winter! It really has that much dimension to it. Definitely a color I’d recommend adding to your stash!
