I heard so many people claim that Revlon Carbonite is a dupe for Chanel Graphite. I purchased Graphite a year ago when it came out. It`s the most expensive nail polish I own but definitely worth the money if you ask me. I haven`t been able to get my hands on Carbonite until recently at my local Big Lots. You probably have seen many comparison posts by now if you googled for swatches but I just thought I`d share mine as well.
My final thoughts
I was surprised at how close the colors were with each other. Although Carbonite is a good dupe for Graphite, there is a noticeable difference between the two. Graphite is a lot sparklier and shinnier. Carbonite looks more dull next to it.
As far as application goes, Graphite applies a little more sheer so you would need 2 to 3 coats to reach opacity. Carbonite is pretty thick and pigmented and I could easily get away with just one coat. I didn`t have any issues with application on either one.
I paid $25 for Graphite and $1.00 for Carbonite. Huge difference in price. So if you can be happy with the difference between the two shades, you definitely get a better deal with Carbonite, although you may have to hunt that one down.
Even though Graphite is limited edition, you can still purchase it from Chanel`s website
I honestly do not regret having Graphite and wouldn`t mind paying the extra $24 for it. You can clearly see in the pictures, it is prettier than Carbonite...at least it is to my eyes.
Which one would you get?
