Well, this is all kinds of unexpected! Three classic red polishes from the way back machine are being re-issued. Rouge Flamboyant, Laque Rouge and Rouge No.19 were all hits of the 1980s – I missed every single one of these because I didn’t work in beauty then and I didn’t have any money either! So, it’s a bit of a thrill to now have the chance to try them.

The first in the swatch is Laque Rouge with a touch of raspberry to it, the middle swatch is Rouge Flamboyant, a classic pillar box red and Rouge 19 has the tiniest bit of shimmer to it.
