This is my first experience with the new Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer formula. N 32 Rouge Expressioniste from the Autumn Winter 2012 collection is a beautifully pigmented and smooth formula. It was almost a one-coater. The brush is more of a paddle shape and at first I didn’t think I was going to care for it but after polishing a couple nails I had fallen in love.
Rouge Expressioniste is a very deep, vampy blood red. Against my fair skin it is almost a blackened red. There is no shimmer. It is a classic colour for fall elegance.
The fall YSL products should be hitting Canadian Holt Renfrew counters in August along with select Bay, Murale, and Sephora boutiques. I know it is rolling out as we speak in some US stores. Update: I just spotted these in stock online at Neiman Marcus.
