Dupe or No Dupe: Zoya Giada & Barielle Secret Desire

(Press sample; affiliate link)


In the fall collections I've reviewed so far, there are two purple shimmers that at first glance look ver similar: Zoya Giada (from the Flair collection; see my full review here) and Barielle Secret Desire....They're similar, but are they dupes?

Let's take a look:

Zoya Giada vs. Barielle Secret Desire

Zoya Giada vs. Barielle Secret Desire

This is a clear case of NO DUPE. The polishes are in the same family yes, but Secret Desire is clearly lighter, and has a blurple duochrome deal going on. Giada is pure purple, and has the deep sexy vamp factor covered.

Do you need both? I don't know about you, but I sure do...what do you think, and do you have a favorite?

Happy polishing,
