Rescue Beauty Lounge Je t'aime! Je t'aime! Collection Swatches & Review

--UPDATED: Now including the two other colors from the collection!--

Good morning! It's Rescue Beauty Lounge time yet again! They have a new collection out inspired by Parisian farmers markets called Je t'aime! Je t'aime! (I love you! I love you!). Be sure to check out the official Rescue Beauty Lounge blog post to learn more about the inspiration behind the collection here. This is a six shade collection, but two of the shades are unfortunately not ready yet. However, RBL wanted to release these four now anyway. The other two will be out in mid April (I think). Let's check these pretties out shall we?

First up is Ah, Oui which translates to "ah, yes". It's a springy bright periwinkle jelly crème that I'm seriously gaga over. This is actually a bit more vibrant in real life, photos cannot do it justice. I have honestly been obsessing over periwinkles this spring and even though I have a few favorites, this might beat them all. It's so shiny and squishy looking, but has a great opaque formula. This is two coats.

Next is Bonne Journee, "good day". It's a cool medium pink rose metallic with tiny subtle bits of copper sparkle.This had a thin formula but was easy to apply. It does turn out a little brushstrokey. I used three coats for full opacity. This isn't a color I would choose for myself, even being a pink lover, but I ended up liking how it looked on the nail.

Here we have C'est Tout, or "that's all". This is a gunmetal grey/silver metallic with a hint of green and sparkly bits of pink, blue and gold. It really does look like liquid metal. This has a fabulous formula, you might be able to get it opaque in one coat, but I used two here. It's a little more brushstrokey than I care for, and I don't know if the color suits me particularly well.

This is Pardonne Moi, a chic way to say "excuse me". It's a gorgeous metallic indigo with purple flashing at the edges. In low light this looks very sleek and duochromey, but outside in full sun it transforms into a brilliant foily shimmer. A thin but manageable formula, this is three coats. The brushstrokes in this one appear to almost melt away when this dries, which I really liked.

You can see in the shade photo how smooth it appears in lower lights, and how the purple comes peeking out.

--Below is the updated portion of the post--

This is Combien?, which means "How much?" - a saying I'm sure you'd definitely need while visiting Paris :) It's a beige gold glass flecky sugary shimmer metallic with hints of pink. RBL says this dries down to a matte finish but the finish doesn't make that super apparent. It's not really my favorite shade but it has a great formula, applies very easily. Two coats.

And last in the collection is Trois Oignons Rouges, meaning "three red onions". I personally detest onions with the fire of a thousand suns, but red onions are pretty gorgeous. This is a magenta purple jelly that dries to a rubbery satin-y finish. It was sort of streaky on the second coat but it evened out nicely on the third. I love this shade!

I wanted to show how it looked shiny, so this is it with a top coat. I might love it even more this way! You can still sort of see the whites of my free edge, but such is life with a jelly polish.
