Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture - Rouge Expressioniste review

It's a new season and that means one thing; new make up collections from all my favourite brands!  I'm inexplicably drawn to autumnal releases more than any other ones and the Contemporary Amazon collection from Yves Saint Laurent is no exception.

I'll be telling you more about the collection very soon but first, one of the two Limited Edition La Laque Couture nail polishes arrived this week and it caused Joanne to send me a photo of it from excitement.  I know, Joanne getting excited about beauty products?!  My subliminal bullying is working!

La Laque Couture in the shade 32 Rouge Expressioniste is a deep red with brown undertones which sounds weird but looks fabulous on the nails dahling.

Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture - Rouge Expressioniste €25
Since my nails are in bits at the moment through no fault but my own, I informed Joanne that she would be the hand model for the photos and before I could open the bottle, she was sitting at the table, hand outstretched.  This doesn't happen often at Girlie Bits Towers ladies.  

It goes on evenly and the wide brush makes application a cinch.  I'd barely any clean up of Joanne's sickeningly dainty nails.

Rouge Expressioniste is one of those "grown up" reds.  It's sophisticated.  It's not in your face as it's darker than a true red.  It looks different depending on the light and this is going to be one of the reliables to get us through the autumn months.  

I applied three coats just for the photographs but could have easily stopped at two.  We applied a topcoat over it as ususal and since Monday evening, it's still going strong on Joanne's nails.  

In summary, we love.  We.  Did you see that?  I'm slowly making her love products and now know nail polish is her weakness!  Here's a quick picture of the other polish from the collection and it's a gorgeous khaki green shade.  Beautiful...
The Contemporary Amazon collection will be available at the start of September and I'll update this post with the exact date when I get it.  What do we think ladies?


  1. This is gorgeous, I think I need this.

  2. It's so nice. It's like wine and berries and velvet and all lovely red things x

  3. I wonder how it differes from "Rouge dada" -it might be lighter? I have to check out in the store..
