Ambre Gingembre 44, Feuille D’ Or 47 and Safran Sultan 42 were part of the YSL La Laque Couture Spicy Collection for Spring 2014. The internet tells me however, that Feuille D’ Or was a re-release from the holidays. I got my set online from yslbeautyus where they each retailed for $27/.34 fl oz. They appear to be sold out on the website at this time.
North African spices were reportedly the inspiration behind the colors. I can definitely see that with Safran Sultan 42 pictured above. I’m wearing two coats and a salon top coat in all of the pics and found drying time to be normal.
Ambre Gingembre, which I’m guessing is amber ginger reminds me of paprika more than ginger. It was my favorite of the three colors, and the color I got complimented on the most. I’d describe it as a creamy, rusted orange.
Both colors wore like iron. The pic above is day 8 of my Ambre Gingembre manicure. It was the same with Safran Sultan which I wore for a full seven days with minimal tip wear.
I added the Feuille D’Or 47 to my Ambre Gingemnbre mani to prolong it a couple more days. As you can see it’s a glitter polish. I’d be the first one to point out that glitter polishes aren’t particularly unique. However, the size and shape of the gorgeous golden flecks of Feuille D’Or made it a must have for me.
Here’s a close up shot of the beautiful, chunky glitter of Feuille D’Or 47. They look more like pieces of gold foil that have been cut into a small beautiful pattern than your basic glitter to me.
I have to say that I’ve yet to be disappointed by aYSL laquer. The concepts behind the collections are well executed, the colors well pigmented and the formula easy to work with. I’m looking forward to their new collections.
In other news. Guess who is having a giveaway this week. That’s right! I finally googled how to do it and I think I figured it out. I tell you I love the internet!
See you next week !
