Revlon Black with Envy vs Chanel Black Pearl

During a recent drugstore visit, I spotted a new Revlon display with advertising another "it" polish color. After seeing Revlon's take on Chanel's Paradoxal, I was curious if this polish would be mimicking another Chanel color. My hunch was pretty accurate, the new color was called Black with Envy and it seemed like it would be pretty similar to Black Pearl from Chanel. Here are the comparison pics:







Index and Middle: Black Pearl
Ring and Pinky: Black with Envy

Once again, Revlon is super close but not quite identical to Chanel. Black with Envy has a similar black with green tinge feel as Black Pearl but the finish is different between the two. Black with Envy has more shimmer to it while Black Pearl has that pearl-esque sheen to it. I wonder what if Revlon will tackle Mimosa next? :)

Wow, Revlon seriously needs to stop copying Chanel. That is so unethical =__=

Too bad their formula will never be as good!

Thanks for sharing!

Revlon's dupe definitely has more sparkles in it. I think Chanel did a great job with Black Pearl!

@Shelia That's so true! It's nice to get a similar product at a better price but they need to be a little less obvious.

Very similar! It's good they duped out Chanel's Black Pearl I guess :p

Revlon did dupe Chanel Mimosa. It's Revlon Electric. Gorgeous color!! Perfect color to bring in Spring and Summer.
