CHANEL Vamp Dupe

Posted on: May 20, 2012

I have been looking for this dupe of CHANEL’s Vamp since my first You Tube video showing the different Revlon dupes I’d found, about 6 weeks ago. My YT friend Gina asked me for a dupe for the CHANEL Vamp. A couple of days ago the beautiful Lori had on a Revlon polish called Plum Seduction. I had it mixed up with Plum Attraction (which i thoughtwas being worn by April at the same time). April was actually wearing Plum Night. The beautiful Lori had made the comment that she thought Plum Attraction was a Vamp dupe. This put Vamp back on my radar. Since beginning to look for this dupe I’d heard conflicting reports. I’d heard Vixen, Devilish, Plum Attraction and even Black with Envy as being dupes for Vamp. When I went online to research I saw that clearly this is a color that everyone has an opinion about.
Remember the movie “Pulp Fiction”? the character played by Uma Thurman, Mia?. In the movie Mia wore CHANEL’S Vamp. That was 1994. All this time later and people are still talking about Vamp.

Revlon’s Vixen, just as gorgeous but at $20 a bottle less, I think it’s effing gorgeous!/em>;;

This is going on my dupe page because now, finally, I can say Revlon Vixen is a dead on dupe for CHANEL Vamp.

**update** According to Wikipdedia, along with the Revlon dupe, Essie also duplicated this color with Dark Chocolate Truffle. The other thing noted on Wikipedia is this polish was created to look like dried blood. Ewww!

Yes it’s f-ing gorgeous, the revlon one I actually like better and glad I helped clarify things. Oh and I love that you called me “the beautiful Lori” 🙂


Thanks, Judi! Your Chanel dupe list is incredibly helpful.


Thanks Indie. It has been a lot of work, but also kind of fun. I have been looking for the May dupe, I can’t tell you how many pink bottles of polish I have and still have not found it! The other night I thought I had it but in the morning light it was clear I did not 😦
Xoxo — Judi


Now I have to get ahold of this one. I love this color; I can see why it is talked about like that.


This might be hard to find, I don’t know if Vixen is part of their regular line. Do you have Essie Dark Chocolate Truffle? According to Wikipedia it was formulated as a dupe to Vamp.


No I don’t have the one from Essie, I just saw Vixen somewhere. So it was either Walgreens or Big Lots.


Mirror Mirror from Sinful Colors seems like a possible Vamp dupe.


I always emailed this webpage post page to all my contacts, for the reason that if like to
read it then my contacts will too.

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
