Revlon Perplex

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.


  1. Nice colour polish. With or without your Dad in the background I always love your bottle shots, they're so sharp and colourful, how do you achieve such great photos?

  2. Charlotte - thanks! I use an "old" Canon PowerShot A2000 IS... turn my camera on "Day Light" mode and have the macro on, put the bottle on the pavement and normally the camera too - let it focus and snap! ^_^ Thank you very much for the compliment!

  3. I don't really get the hype about this polish, other than it looking like the more expensive Chanel version (which I still don't get...). I guess it's just that I don't really care for dark colors.

  4. I absolutely love this, but don't have it yet. It reminds me of a polish I purchased, and no longer have, at Victoria's Secret over a decade ago when they did polishes.

  5. If you have a Big Lots store near you, you might want to check them for this color - the one near me had lots of them at $1.00 each. I'm afraid I'm not as thrilled with this one as you, so I'm glad it was only $1.00! But that's why they make more than one color of nail polish :).
