Because Color has instance equality, you need to test the component values:

        Dim xColor as Color = Color.Blue

        If PictureBox1.BackColor.A = xColor.A _
            And PictureBox1.BackColor.R = xColor.R _
            And PictureBox1.BackColor.G = xColor.G _
            And PictureBox1.BackColor.B = xColor.B Then
            MsgBox("True")
        End If

This demonstrates why you can't use BackColor = MyColor in a test:
Public Class Form1
 
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        PictureBox1.BackColor = Color.Blue
        Dim xColor As Color = Color.FromArgb(255, 0, 0, 255)
 
        If PictureBox1.BackColor.A = xColor.A _
            And PictureBox1.BackColor.R = xColor.R _
            And PictureBox1.BackColor.G = xColor.G _
            And PictureBox1.BackColor.B = xColor.B Then
            MsgBox("True")
        End If
 
        If PictureBox1.BackColor = xColor Then
            MsgBox("True")
        Else
            MsgBox("False")
        End If
    End Sub
End Class
