MaxFactor Glossfinity Ruby Fruit (Chanel Rouge Noir dupe)

I haven't really bought anything from MaxFactor (aside from their False Lash Effect Mascara which was amazing!) because I find that for a drugstore brand, I find it to be pretty pricey. I was walking along the MaxFactor counter last week when I saw their nail polish display. At P245, the price range was quite affordable if you compare it with OPI, Orly, etc. I couldn't resist, so I had to buy one!

I've been looking for a good dupe for my favorite nail polish, so when I saw Ruby Fruit, I thought it would be a good alternative for the Rouge Noir. I didn't think I'd actually find a dupe of it! Ruby Fruit is a beautiful dark plum with hints of brown mixed in. As you can see in the last photo, Chanel Rouge Noir is just the tinnnniest bit more dark. Put 3 coats of Ruby Fruit, and you'd have the perfect dupe.

MaxFactor Glossfinity promises "glossy nails for up to 7 days." I applied 2 coats of it, and it really was super glossy. I didn't put any top coat because I want to find if their claim was true, and I have to say, after 7 days I was pretty impressed. It did chipped, but the glossiness of the polish was still there.

The best thing about this nail polish line is it's formulation. It wasn't as thick & goopy as the Chanel one. I'm not the best when it comes to applying nail polish so the thin consistency of the nail polish made a much smoother application. The brush was a huge step up, too. It's not as big as the OPI one, not as thin as the old Essie brush. It's just.. well, perfect.



  1. Wow, the two are so close! Amazing dupe - it's always cool to find cheaper alternatives to higher end products :)

  2. @Rae: Ooh, that's the same thing my manicurist told me! I'll check it out, thank you! =)

  3. This is crazy! I can't believe how similar they are.
