Bourjois So Lacque Nude Collection

These are three shades from the new Bourjois So Lacque Nude Collection – when I look at this trio of shades, nude isn’t necessarily the first thing I think – pretty, yes – absolutely. Love the shades, but maybe not quite nude. I think they’re more of a twist on the nude theme – subtle colours, ones that flatter and suit different skin-tones. When I first saw these, and the other shades in the collection. My eyes were immediately drawn to the soft lilac shade – Peace and Mauve. Whilst not really a nude I can really see how this will look gorgeous on pale skins where perhaps a true nude might not be as flattering. Plus who doesn’t love a touch of pastel for Spring?! Overall, I actually really like how this collection is basically a blend of nude-tones and sheer pastel shades – like toned down versions of the brighter versions of the existing collection.

So the three shades I have here (from a total of seven, with five new shades) are ‘Indispen-sable (11), ‘Peace and Mauve’ (15) and ‘Tombee a pink’ (13). Indispen-sable is the most nude-like of the trio and is actually quite lovely – very pale and quite sheer but with just enough warmth to be flattering. Then there’s Peace and mauve as I already mentioned  – my favourite from the whole collection. A soft lilac that has a pretty brightness to it. Adore this colour, although is also quite sheer so needs a few layers (3-4) to get an opaque finish. Or alternatively can layer over a white (there’s a white in the collection too called Coton Sur Ton.

Then lastly there’s the slightly salmon-pink/terracotta sort of shade that is Tombee a Pink (13) – for me, it’s not flattering but can really see this looking lovely on darker skintones. This is the most pigmented of the three I have.

Also worth a mention is that there’s also cuticle tattoos (they look better than they sound) and a quick dry drops product launching too! With the idea being you can layer the cuticle tattoos over the nude shades.

    I adore this nail polish formula, it dries amazingly fast and has great color pay off. I love it, totally need to invest in a couple more of these

    I’m really not into the look of cuticle tattoo’s at all but I do like the sound of the Insta dry drops, if they do actually work. I believe Bourjois are also releasing some pretty nail decals? But I’m not sure if that was Bourjois or not. With regard to the varnishes, they’re not really my sort of thing but are certainly pretty x
