L’Oréal — Coral Trianon (Colour Riche Le Vernis à l’Huile) Swatch & Review

SALE ALERT

Just a quick note to everyone: Sephora (at least on the Canadian site) is currently discounting selected Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss and eye shadow. The lip glosses on sale are shown ($11, reg. $21); the eye shadows do not have a special sale section yet, and you have to click on the individual shades to see the discount ($8, reg $16).

I found that if I bought 8 shadows and 2 empty eyeshadow palettes, I was able to get the $13 discount for regular-priced eye shadows! So go check it out. Here’s my damage, by the way. So glad I didn’t splurge on these during the VIB sale! [By the way, it was pointed out that if I had just placed 2 separate orders of 4 shadows and 1 palette, I would have gotten $13 off each order! That works out better even if you pay for shipping, and you get 2x freebies. D’oh!]

Also, don’t forget ebates.ca (referral link) with 8% cash back today, and Sephora has really good codes now for multiple samples: SUNVIBES for VIB/VIB Rouge, SUNSOUT for Beauty Insiders.

Collection: L’Oréal Summer 2016, Le Vernis à l’Huile Nail Lacquer [Launch]

L’Oréal launched Le Vernis à l’Huile polishes in Canada last summer, and I’ve fallen deeply in love with this drugstore line.

Coral Trianon (442) is from the original launch, and it’s a superbly rich and juicy coral orange cream. It has a teeny touch of white to brighten it up nicely. The pigmentation is fantastic, especially for a drugstore brand.

trianon, by the way is a small villa, like a châlet, especially one that is situated on a larger ground, like the Grand Trianon and Petit Trianon (big and small) at the Palace of Versailles.

I’ve liked the application for all of these polishes that I’ve tried. Coral Trianon is a little bit thicker than the others, possibly because it’s so bright and nearly neon, and has that aforementioned slightly whitened base.

It was almost fully opaque with one coat, but it—very oddly—needed another two to three coats (it varied by nail) to achieve perfectly even coverage. This is partly because of the thickness of the formula, as sometimes the second coat applied a little gloopily and I needed to smooth it out with a third. The other reason is that this polish seems to dry quite readily! It’s not too fast, like a speed-dry formula, but it can be quick, and perhaps I was dallying a bit while polishing.

On the positive side, all the thick coats still dried magnificently well, and, as all the other L’Huiles, to a very nice and glossy shine. It also dries quite hard, so I have never felt the need to use a top coat with these. They’re really a spectacular all-in-one kind of polish.

This polish is scented, and when dry it has that unique L’Oréal lipstick fragrance.

These polishes are pretty much priced like Essie (both owned by L’Oréal), at CA$9.99 vs. a buck or two more for Essie in Canada. When they go on sale, the prices are essentially the same. If you like a wider paddle brush, these are definitely a superior option to Essie’s polishes, which have slender, rounded brushes.

  1. La la la I’m not hearing about the ABH sale! 😛 (dammit, some of those colours I’m interested in)
    This colour suits you so well! Odd about the formula…

  2. I think you’re converting me to corals! I used to not be into them, but you keep showing off gorgeous colors like this one and now I find myself pining after them 😛
