I’m always really impressed with Bourjois. They have some fantastic products and offer great value for money. I have been reading some reviews on the new La Laque nail colours and couldn’t wait to get my hands on a bottle – even though I found them rather hard to find! Not every Bourjois display seem to stock these polishes, so when I went to a larger Boots store last Saturday I couldn’t help but treat myself to Chair Et Tendre 02. In the bottle this shade looks very pretty and natural with the slightest hint of shimmer.
So, lets start with the bottle. It is a lovely tactile bottle that is triangular in shape with rounded edges. The shape helps the bottle to sit comfortably in my hands when painting so thats definitely a positive.
La Laque Nail Varnish makes promises that the shades are highly pigmented with a formula that glides effortlessly onto the nail. I found this indeed to be the case, and the brush is a lovely shape that helps me to guide the polish onto my nails. The colour was fairly opaque in just one application but I always like to go for two to correct any streaks that are sometimes inevitable.
The colour is pretty but I am not sure it stands out from other pale nudes. On initial application the colour was a lovely pink shade but after a few days the colour changed to a beige pink colour that I was not so keen on. My manicure lasted for about 4 days chip free with a gel top coat.
So overall, whilst I really love the formula and initial colour I was a little disappointed with how it developed over the course of the week. That said, I think this is more to do with the colour I chose and I will be giving Bourjois La Laque another chance to impress me as I have my eye on Flambant Rose – a beautiful pinky red that will look great on my toes!
Bourjois La Laque Chair Et Tendre 02 is priced at £6.49, however it can be found a little cheaper online at various outlets. I bought mine from Boots taking advantage of a 2 for £14 offer that is currently on.
Hope you found this little review useful. I would love to hear from you if you have tried Bourjois La Laque to see how you found it, and to recommend any other colours.!
Talk to you all soon x
