YVES SAINT LAURENT La Laque in #27 Pink Moon (Rose Lunaire) Review and Swatch
August 8, 2011 1 Comment
After all of the nailpolishes I have ever tried, I can say that YSL La Laque has absolutely the best brush. It is small, precise and easy to handle.
YSL La Lacque costs $20 and the bottle contains 10 ml. I never comment on how longwearing the nailpolish is because absolutely every nailpolish (be it a drugstore or a high end) wears off after two days. What I focus on is the shade itself and the consistency of the nailpolish.
The shade Pink Moon (Rose Lunaire) was already mentioned in this post where I have compared it to Guerlain Kiss Kiss Strass in Rose de la Reine.
The consistency is thin, but pretty pigmented. Nevertheless, I have used 2 coats on the swatch, hoping that it will bring up more shimmer.
In the bottle, Pink Moon is a dirty rose shade with silver shimmer which reflects blue, depending on the angle. This was enough to make me buy this shade. On the nail, the shade seems less exciting. It is dirty pink, and the shimmer is barely perceptible. It’s a bit disappointing to see such a gorgeous shade turn boring.
