YSL Gris Underground (38) La Laque Couture
YSL Gris Underground (38) La Laque Couture

YSL Gris Underground (38) La Laque Couture ($25.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “cloud of grey.” It’s gray, blue, lavender; a muted, grayed cornflower blue to me. Very cloudy, very fall. It was opaque in two coats, and the consistency was just slightly on the thicker side, so the drying time seemed longer than average.  It applied fairly easily, particularly because it has a wider brush that enables better coverage in a single stroke so it minimizes unevenness. The formula isn’t forgiving if the prior coat is only partially dry, so make sure to allow enough time between coats for drying.  Essie Rock the Boat is lighter, slightly less gray. NARS Galathee is much grayer. See comparison swatches.

Beige Gallerie (39) La Laque Couture ($25.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “concrete beige.” It’s a light-medium beige with neutral gray undertones and a cream finish. It was mostly opaque in two coats, and the consistency was slightly on the thin side. Like Gris Underground, give the first coat plenty of time to dry to avoid dragging/pulling. MAC Quiet Time is warmer. MAC Endless Night is similar. Chanel Frenzy is a smidgen grayer and sheerer. See comparison swatches.

  1. I LOVE Gris Underground. I bought in early July and it’s my perfect shade of light gray, I’ve been wearing it on tips and toes and I love it!

  2. yellowlantern

    Gris Underground looks sorta similar to Zoya Kristen or Zoya Megan.

    At first Beige Gallerie looked like Zoya Flynn, but Flynn is a bit more warm toned. Beige Gallerie is a nice neutral. I keep meaning to get a light brown polish for fall.

  3. Totally love weird muted shades like this.

  4. Great reviews and your swatches are beautiful. I usually like my nails to pop a little more though (:

  5. Love the look of the grey nail polish! It’s not too dark or anything either but not too vibrant that it stands out too much!

  6. I seriously love the brush!

  7. Kay

    How would Beige Gallerie compare to Essie Chinchilly?:)

  8. The first one does look a bit like the Cult Nails Let’s Get Dirty shade, though the finish is totally different. I actually like the second one a lot though not for me… I think it could be lovely on darker skintones though

    I can’t help but think of Essie’s Sand Tropez (which I’m wearing now) when I see Beige gallery. That Grey underground is just gorgeous! Guess I’m a sucker for those muted tones too.

  10. Wow, it’s like if Galathee and Rock the Boat had a baby.

  11. Jen

    Wow, Gris Underground is stunning! I just bought NARS Galathee (from the Fall collection), which is similar, but a bit lighter :)

  12. Pamela

    I love these kind of colors! I have Essies Bikini So Teeny & Rock the Boat & from my monitor, it looks more like BST than RTB. Zoya Caitlin looks kind of similar but darker.

  13. divinem1 (Melissa)

    I love how clean Gris Underground is. Beautiful color. YSL really has my attention this season. First time ever for me. Thanks for the reviews, Christine!

  14. Carole

    YSL Gris Underground also reminds me Essie Cocktail Bling, it’s look like very similar.

  15. VickyM

    I like beige underground great elegant color :) .
