Lancome Noir Caviar 585N Vernis in Love.

Lancome Noir Caviar 585N Vernis In Love.

While at Sephora, checking out Lancome Rouge in Love Lipsticks (based on my sister’s recommendation), my attention was inexplicably diverted to Lancome Noir Caviar 585N Vernis In Love ($15 USD/ 6ml/.21 fl. oz.).  I had no intention of purchasing a nail polish, but there was something so appealing about the color, brush, consistency and packaging, I decided to take the plunge.  Would this new polish make me fall “In Love” or ignite feelings of temporary lust?  You’ll see 🙂

The Pros of Lancome Noir Caviar 585N Vernis In Love:

  1. Beautiful dark deep gray cream with a hint of a teal/blue undertone–keeps polish from looking black from afar.
  2. Thin smooth consistency makes application a breeze.
  3. Settles evenly on the nails without any streaks.
  4. Opacity is reached using two coats (some may find one coat sufficient).
  5. Resulting color is rich and truly “high-shine.”
  6. Brush head will accommodate a variety of nail widths and lengths.
  7. Dries fairly quickly.
  8. Amazing wear–chip-free for 5-6 days depending on one’s activities.  According to lancome-usa.com, “Multi-Polymers Complex provides a film that protects color and keeps nails perfectly polished.”  For reference I use Revlon Colorstay Base Coat with Out the Door Fast Drying Top Coat.
  9. Easily removable with my trusty Zoya Nail Polish Remover.
  10. Not advertised as 3-free, but I could not find Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, or DBP in the ingredients.
  11. Polishes are categorized in 3 moods:  Letter M shades are brighter/daytime appropriate, Letter B shades are boudoir shades for cocktail hour (whatever that means), and Letter N shades are intense shades (my favorite category).
  12. Small compact bottle is easily stored.
  13. 26 colors offered with exclusive shades on lancome-usa.com.

The Cons to Noir Caviar 585N Vernis In Love:

  1. Amount (.21 fl oz) is well below what most standard polishes offer (.5 fl.oz.).
  2. Sephora does not carry the entire Lancome Vernis In Love color line.
  3. Noir Caviar 585N is listed on Sephora.com and Nordstrom.com as Noir Angora 585N, but my bottle (purchased at Sephora) clearly states Noir Caviar 585N.  Lancome also lists this shade as Noir Caviar 585N.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Lancome Noir Caviar 585N Vernis In Love is a must have shade/formula.  I can honestly say this little bottle of murky goodness has made its way to the tippy top of my list as one of the best nail polish formulas..ever!!  My next color(s) will be 473N Rouge Reglisse and then Marine Chic, etc..  I think it is safe to say, I’m officially “In Love” with Lancome Nail Polish.  Be well, stay safe and be happy.
