Bourjois Violet Couture

*Nothing to disclose

Evening! Today I bring to you a creme I picked up at Priceline recently with one of those Sister Club redemption vouchers. I think “Sister Club” is such a silly sounding name; it also implies that women can only join, which I find off-putting. Anywho, moving on. Today’s polish is Violet Couture by Bourjois, I’m not sure why it’s called violet considering it is definitely more pink. It’s one of the So Laque! polishes, which is meant to have ultra shine, but to be honest I don’t think this polish is a standout for its shine, even with a top coat.

Violet Couture is a pink creme and what you see on my nails is two coats. The formula was nice, a little on the runny side, and the brush was wonderful, wide and easy to use. I don’t know if this is just me, but it seemed like the polish turned darker on my nails after a few hours of wear. As you can see in the above photo, the polish on my nails looks really different to the bottle.

  • Where to buy: Priceline
  • Cost: AU$12
  • Volume: 10ml
  • Coats to opacity: Two

This is my first Bourjois polish and I have to say I’m a little disappointed. I realised when I got home that this is near on dupe for Natio Adore, so it kind of feels a bit pointless for me now. I’m just so relieved I only paid AU$3 for it instead of the full price of AU$12! For that price I just wouldn’t buy Bourjois polishes. The colour range isn’t that huge and it’s a lot of money for just your average creme.

So, have you tried any Bourjois polishes? What do you think of them? Thanks for reading!
