Hi everyone! I hope you've all had a great Monday!
Today, I have the second part of my Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture to share with you all, and although you've probably seen a few already, I'm really excited to share them here.
So let's get started with Parme Graffiti, Mauve Naif and... Bleu Majorelle!
Parme Graffiti is a light cool toned lilac creme. It's not completely a pastel, I find it too dark but it's still somewhere in pastel land. I love how cool and dusty it looks on the nails, perfect for Fall and definitely sophisticated. I used 2 coats in these swatches (plus topcoat) and both application and opacity were outstanding.
Mauve Naif is not exactly what would come to mind. It's a creamy and rich Byzantium purple with a subtle cool hue. I love how deep and timeless it looks. Formula was once again wonderful and barely required a second coat. 2 coats plus topcoat here.
Bleu Majorelle. Sigh... Once there was Chanel 18 Rouge Noir and today we have YSL 18 Bleu Majorelle. I think that having said that pretty much sums up the iconic status this shade has reached. I will also spare you the color description as they completely nailed up the Marjorelle blue. Formula was once again perfect but a little less opaque than the other two making it a true 2 coater. I used 2 coats plus topcoat.
I have tried seven of the Laques Couture so far and I have yet to find them any flaws. Of course the colors are beautiful but what truly sets them apart if the perfection Yves Saint Laurent has achieved on the formulas. I still can't get over how well they apply and how easy application is with the new large, flat and rounded brush.
Oh... And I almost forgot to add this : Bleu Majorelle! *inserts subliminal message*
What do you think girls? Did you get any of the new YSL lacquer range? What do you think the hot color is this Fall?
