Gotta love my dad popping up in the background - hah.
Revlon Perplex is another dupe to Chanel Paradoxal and a much cheaper one at that. I actually bought a couple of extras for future giveaways because it's my understanding that this color is sold out in some areas due to it's likeness to Paradoxal.
I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 2 coats of Perplex and a top of Seche Vite. The formula was nice and smooth.
In the sun, you definitely see more purple shimmer than grey which Paradoxal was more grey, less purple shimmer. I have to be honest, I'm more of a purple girl so I love this way over Paradoxal.
My shade picture kind of blew me away - check out that smoky purple color! Big fan.
Indoors with flash - lots of purple shimmer in a grey base. It's a bit dark for me for spring but I never really wear colors according to the "season" - I just wear colors. ^_^
Revlon can be found in several grocery and drug stores - price may vary from $3-5. Check out their website for more information. You can also follow them on Twitter or like them on Facebook.
