Alix Avien - 243 (Paradoxal dupe)


Purple/taupe with purple shimmer

I picked up this polish on hols in Turkey last year, from a quick google search I'm pretty sure it's a native Turkish brand which is cool.

Obviously it's not the most unique of colours, I'm sure it was created as a dupe for Chanel Paradoxal, but hey, it's a good dupe and was a lot cheaper than Chanel!




Swatch shown is 2 coats with no top coat.

Formula was gloopy and a little tricky to work with.  I wore this on holiday and it lasted well

It's pretty of course, just like the original!

  1. I agree, yet another dupe - I think I have 3 different ones - but I love them all LOL

    1. I wonder if the developers of new colours work with a bottle of the 'original' for inspiration?!

  3. This is by far the most similar dupe I've ever seen! Shame on the bad formula but ehi, still not worth getting the real expensive one imho!

    1. Exactly, I've yet to be convinced by the price point for Chanel polishes...
