BarryM Dusky Mauve vs. Chanel Paradoxal – Um DUPE!

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 16 - 2010

With all this Chanel vs. BarryM nail polish dupe talk… how could I possibly have resisted CHARGING down my local Superdrug as fast as my fat little trotters could carry me (ok, I drove) before scooping up a bottle of BarryM’s new nail polish sensation Dusky Mauve to compare for myself?

Well I couldn’t.  Hence this post – duh.

So is it?  Isn’t it?

It most certainly is.

BarryM’s Dusky Mauve Nail Paint is a practically perfect dupe for Chanel’s Paradoxal – I’ll let the photos do the talking.

When Bazza met Coco… *cue music*

The only teeniest, tiniest difference between the two is that I feel the BarryM version may have a touch more sparkle in direct sunlight… but I’m not even 100% confident on that.

If you had wanted to indulge in Chanel’s Paradoxal but couldn’t quite stretch to the £16.50 required to do so… put those pennies towards the £2.95 dupe of the year and head down to Superdrug for BarryM’s Dusky Mauve instead.  No one will be able to tell the difference.

If your local Superdrug/Boots are out of stock, don’t forget that you can also buy BarryM’s Dusky Mauve Nail Paint online from the BarryM website which ships internationally.

    I have the Barry M and it is very high quality. I thoroughly recommend it. It went on like pure buttah!

  3. Anitacska says:

    What I don’t understand is the hype about this colour. To me it’s actually really ugly. It’s not proper purple, it’s just blah. But anyway, thanks for sharing, lol.

  4. Louise says:

    They are sooo close! Models Own were raving that they had a dupe but they have definitely been pushed aside!
    Personally, I’m not keen on the colour though.

  23. Becka says:

    I bought this polish last week and when I put it on, straight away I thought it looked really similar but didn’t have the Chanel to compare properly.
    Wow…it’s shocking that it is SO close! I’d much rather pay the £2.95 🙂 xx

  24. Angie says:

    Wow, that is amazing, I can’t see any difference at all! Why anyone would buy Paradoxal now baffles me! Thanks for this!

    oooh a massive thank you to M at Facegoop for giving me the link to this, I’ve been trawling the make-up halls of Britain looking Paradoxal – and am now going to walk five minutes down the road and buy this Barry M stuff instead.

    I couldn’t get hold of a bottle of Chanel’s Paradoxol, so when I saw this genius dupe I went straight to Barry M website and got myself two bottles, just to be on the safe side 😉 thanks for sharing!!
