Revlon Perplex and Sephora X Secretive Comparison

This is my comparison of Revlon Perplex (Chanel Paradoxal Dupe) and Sephora X - Secretive.  I didn't even think of comparing the two until someone made a comment when I posted my review of Sephora Secretive that it looked like Revlon Perplex.

As you can see - the base color is pretty close.  The difference between the two is that Secretive is a creme finish and Perplex has the subtle purple/pink shimmer.  To tell you the truth, I wore the alternating look above all day and unless I got really close and studied the differences, I couldn't really tell.  I have never thought the shimmer was very evident in Perplex on the nail.  I took quite a few shots and this shot showed the difference between the two the best.  For the most part - depending on how the light hit the nails, I couldn't see the difference in my photos.

They do look a little more different in the bottle, but I think Perplex looks a little better in the bottle than on the nail.  That's just my opinion.  In conclusion, they aren't exact dupes, but if you already have Perplex, I would suggest checking out some of the other Sephora X polishes as they have so many unique shades.  See my prior post that links the collections here.

I hope everyone is doing well!

  1. I'm curious if ChG "Jungle Queen" is another dupe of these two. It's also a purply-grey shade like these.

    1. I like Perplex better, which is odd because I usually gravitate to cremes, I think. The shimmer in it is just so perfectly subtle. Thanks for the comparison! :) :)
