Chanel Suspense Dupe - Bourjois Grenade In

Left Bourjois Grenade In (£7.99) and Right Chanel Suspense (£25)



Left Bourjois Grenade In and Right Chanel Suspense
A few of you might already know that even though I love my high end makeup, I do love drugstore as well and I enjoy nothing more than searching down a good dupe for a high end product.. the sad life of a beauty blogger eh?
Recently I did a post about a GORG Chanel lipstick, the Rouge Coco Shine in Suspense and many of you seemed to love it. It was on a day when I was taking copious amounts of blog photos and this and the Bourjois Shine Edition Grenade In happened to be sitting together and I noticed how similar they were! Yes, we have a dupe on our hands.
Both lipsticks are a gorgeous deep bright fuschia colour that adds a pop of colour to the lips. Both are also shine formulas meaning they are almost balmy in consistency and go on the lips more sheer and opaque than other lipsticks. The main difference is the fact the Bourjois dupe does not contain any shimmer particles, unlike the Rouge Coco Shine which has small purple pink glitter particles to add a bit more shine. The Bourjois is also a little more brighter in colour but I think the glitter particles in the Chanel attract light giving this the same sort of colour as well.
I was honestly a little shocked they were a good dupe as in the bullet they look different the Bourjois one looks a lot darker. However in the first picture I have both of these on my lips. The Bourjois on the left and the Chanel on the right and you honestly cannot tell them apart.
So there you have it a £7.99 Bourjois Dupe of a £25 Chanel lipstick!

What are your favourite dupes?
