Welcome to the second installment of Dupe Or No Dupe! Today I'm going to compare Revlon Royal to China Glaze's Man Hunt, which just released in the 'On Safari' collection.
First, let's look at them in the bottle:
|Revlon Royal vs. China Glaze Man Hunt in the shade|

Hmm. Okay, so maybe they aren't as different as I seemed to think they were when I first saw Man Hunt on my nails. Especially in the sunlight picture, they seem to be fairly different. Memory can be a tricky thing...but let's look at them on the nail:
|Revlon Royal Vs. China Glaze Man Hunt in the shade|
|Revlon Royal vs. China Glaze Man Hunt in the sun|
Okay, now things get a little murkier. In both of these pictures, I have two coats of Revlon Royal on my index and ring finger, and two coats of China Glaze Man Hunt on my middle and pinkie fingers. While these two are not identical, they are certainly very, very similar. In fact, in the shade, while they are still different, the difference is very small.
So Dupe Or No Dupe? No dupe, but still similar enough that you can certainly get by with just one or the other. In terms of formula, I found the China Glaze to be a little bit smoother and easier to work with, but not significantly so (and I've had my Royal for a while now, so that might factor in, too). So if you're looking for something to drop off of your shopping list, this might help you do it. And of course, if you want a reason to justify having both, you now have that, too. :)
I hope this was helpful! Thanks for reading.
