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,


  1. Duh, of course we need both! Both gorgeous, but Giada is just prettier. Great comparison.

  2. I've heard good things about this barielle product. Going on my wish ♥ list now.
