Default CIM Commando or Olive ?

I was just about to order some more CIM Olive, but saw CIM Commando. Is one more Olive green than the other? I just need a nice olive but if Commando is better than the Olive, I'll give that a try...

Thanks for any info/photos(?)
Lynn

On their website, CIM describes Olive as a "yellower" green, whereas Commando has a little more blue in it. I think Kandice reviewed both on her blog (Coloraddiction). Hope this helps

The new Commando is greyer and bluer than the old batch of Commando because they reformulated it.

So if you want Olive Green, I'd go with the Olive. I don't think they are as close in colour now as they were when they were originally reviewed.
