Yves Saint Laurant (which will be referred to as YSL from this point on because I’m a lazy typist) has recently come out with a plethora of colors for thier La Laque Couture Line. I was pretty excited about this because their last few offerings (here and here) were a departure from the mainstream colors I had come to expect from YSL.
Now, most of the colors offered were creams. Fortunately, I’ve turned a leaf and am not the anti-cream person I have been and was willing to try a few out.
Two of the colors, Bronze Aztec and Bleu Cobalt were actually part of 2011 Holiday offerings. I originally purchased them and returned them when I realized this. However, once I tried these new colors, the brush was so good, I almost considered going back and re-purchasing them.
Gris Deco is a delicate grey shimmer. Might be hard to see as subdued shimmer is difficult to to capture in lighter colors, but trust me, it’s there. I actually got several compliments on this color when I wore it.
Prune Minimale is also another shimmer. Sort of. There’s shimmer in the bottle, but this dark color barely shows it on the nail. Nice color for those that are into vampy shades.
Both Fuchsia and Violine Surrealist are pretty standard cremes. Pretty, but not overly unique.
I have to say that the application on all of these was very good. The brush was fantastic and there was good self leveling. Gris Deco is shown at 3 coats, the rest were two.
