Yves Rocher Botanical Colour Nail Polish in Lilac / Lilas

Yves Rocher — Lilac / Lilas (Botanical Colour Nail Polish) Swatch & Review

Collection: Yves Rocher 2015 Summer, Botanical Colour Nail Polish [Launch]

So, I’ve been completely smitten by Yves Rocher’s new line of Botanical Colour Nail Polish and I’ve taken advantage of their many sales and ordered even more colors. I mean, they end up coming in at around CA$3 a pop. What’s not to love?

Today, I’m reviewing Lilac / Lilas (31), a semi-sheer pinked lavender pastel with very subtle pink shimmer.

Application is very smooth, but a little less even than usual. The semi-sheer nature of this color means that you’ll need four coats or more to get full opacity. I did three coats in the swatch and you can still see a bit of VNL.

The pink shimmer is pretty faint, so it really gives off more of a glowy, soft-focus effect. Here’s a closer, angled shot so you can see the shimmer a little better, at least in the bottle:

A word about the brush: it is a wide paddle shape with a rounded end, and it makes application so, so easy, particularly if your nails are not teeny like mine are—but it still works well for me.

Yves Rocher Botanical Colour Nail Polish is 0.16 fl oz / 5 mL and retails for US$6 / CA$6 / UK£2.95 / EU€2.95. It is free of toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and it is made in France.

Yves Rocher was founded in 1959. The company is based in La Gacilly, France.

    • I order them online at yvesrocher.ca. I think they have different sites for different countries. Wait for a sale and pounce! I got them for around $3 a pop. (I haven’t gone into a Yves Rocher store lately, but Stashmatters said she did and only saw 6 shades available.)


      • Oohh I see. The stores have definitely not popped up on the western side of Canada, according to the store locator only Ontario, Quebec, and NB have the stores — my question is, why of all provinces does NB have a store?! They don’t even have enough people there! (I feel like I can say this because I used to live there :P)

        • Oh, I didn’t realize they didn’t have stores in so many provinces. Yes, a bit weird they have one in NB, LOL! Well, in any case, their online shopping is great, so there’s always that option 🙂
