Revlon Black with Envy

I heard that Revlon supposedly came up with a dupe for the Chanel Black Pearl polish, which I don't have. I think this shade is limited edition so if you like it, hurry and get it before it's gone. After swatching Black with Envy and comparing it with pictures of Black Pearl, I come to determine that the resemblance is close but not spot on.
First off, the application of Black with Envy was smooth. I got an even and good coverage on the second coat. The formula is not too thick or thin and dried fairly quick, which was nice. The color does remind me of a black pearl, silvery black. It's slightly shimmery and has a tiny bit of green shimmers. The green shimmers on Black Pearl is more pronounced and I would have liked it more if Black with Envy did too. I also noticed that Black Pearl was slightly lighter in color.

Since I don't have a picture of Chanel Black Pearl, please refer to the pictures taken by Temptalia by checking out this link if you are curious to see the difference and similarities with Black Envy

What do you think of this polish? Would you consider it a dupe of Black Pearl?


  1. I would consider buying this polish. I don't believe I had a grey/black,coal type color like it yet.

    I have passed along an award to your blog. It is up on my blog :-) (though, I'm fairly certain you have received it at some point? I didn't see it anywhere on your blog)

  2. such a gorgeous metallic gunmetal color!
