Good morning! Hope you all had a good weekend! Turned out to be quite a crazy one with the passing of Whitney Houston...when I was little my best friend Kaitie and I would always sing along to her music (and Mariah's, we were divas lol) so sad that such a great talent is gone.
Today I have a comparison for you guys. Recently, Jessica came out with a polish called Iridescent Eye. I heard about it over on Make Up Alley a little while back, when I came across the Jessica booth at ISSE I had to pick up a bottle to bring it home and see if it really was a dupe to Chanel Peridot. It's very rare that I buy into Chanel hype and fork over the big bucks for one of their polishes....it seems like every single time I do someone comes around and dupes it then I feel like an idiot. This is definitely one of those times. Jessica Iridescent Eye is a spot on dupe for Peridot. If I hadn't labeled which finger was which polish I wonder how many of you would have known it was even different! Formula wise I actually prefer the Jessica polish, the formula was a little thicker and easier to apply. I used 2 coats of polish for each.
Price wise, Jessica retails for $7.50 a bottle, Chanel $26...the Jessica bottle is also bigger 0.5 fl oz as opposed to the Chanel which is 0.4 fl oz.
Surprisingly, Chanel Peridot is still available on their website, for a whopping $26. Jessica is available here on Jessica's website for $7.50. I'm sure you know which I'd recommend...the Jessica version. I don't see the point in buying the Chanel unless you want it just for the brand name.
