Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture #48 Rose Scabiosa, #49 Rouge Pablo from Spring 2014 Flower Crush Collection, Swatches & Comparison

Today I would like to post some notes about my Burberry Spring Quad experience but first things first, I would like to talk about two new Yves Saint Laurent nail polishes which are released for the upcoming spring, as a part of their Flower Crush Collection. Just a side note, I have reviewed the beautiful highlighter palette from the same collection, you can check it out here.

This one is going to be a short post since we are running late for movies tonight. After not being able to get tickets (all sold out) for Wolf of Wall Street on Friday and Saturday, tonight we have reserved and hoping that this time it will work. Movies are being shown in original sound in only a very few theaters in Stuttgart, Germany so getting a ticket is sometimes not that easy. Alright so back to those pretties...

YSL La Laque Couture #48 Scabiosa is a creme lilacy pink. It applies a little streaky and sheer by the first coat but it all evens out by the second coat. You should make sure though not to apply too much at once because it has tendency to get thick. YSL has one of my favorite nail polish formulas and this one impressed me a little less than usual but still it is easy to work with and the result is totally worth it. Look at this... It may look like a few shades you know but I ensure you it is indeed rather unique. (excuse me for the state of my nails, ugh, wanted to cut them shorter but they are always a challenge to file)

Once more against the still green background. Here in Germany the weather has been so nice throughout the winter, I am already in Spring mood. I hope it stays that way.

YSL #49 Rouge Pablo may look familiar. This one has the dream formula of YSL, not thick but covers beautifully, dream consistency and drying time. It is almost one coater but I applied two for the photos below. It is a gorgeous cheerful red creme with blue undertones. It is a classically beautiful one, which would appeal to red lovers.

It is not too light nor too dark, makes it a day appropriate shade but also can be worn to a special occasion alike.

I thought Rose Scabiosa would be very close to Chanel #535 May but I was wrong. May has less blue in it and appears more pink than lilac. Dior Rosy #355 Bow is also more pink, less lilac. Chanel #277 Rodeo Drive is lavender (cooler) and darker. As you see Rose Scabiosa is very unique to my stash and this is why I am loving it.

YSL #49 Rouge Pablo is darker than Givenchy's Spring shade #16 Rose Addiction (reviewed here) but it is very close to Chanel #Tapage (reviewed here) and Chanel Rouge Rubis (reviewed here). It is indeed between those two in terms warm/cool scale. If you have one or both of these shades, you may want to skip Rouge Pablo.

Final thoughts: YSL's new nail polishes for spring are a lilac which is rather unique and a red, which has great formula but rather close to two recent Chanel shades. Rose Scabiosa and Rouge Pablo are already released and both should be limited edition.

What is your favorite Spring nail polish for the upcoming season until now?

  1. Pretty, both are pretty! I think I like Rouge Pablo more than Tapage since it appears a smidge darker. I'll have to see these in person. I love Chanel's formula but have yet to try YSL's. :)

    1. Hi Rads,
      I think you will rock the lilac one, it is really the perfect springy shade. My favorites this Spring must be this one and Dior's blue nail polish ;-)
