Another makeup collection for this fall winter 2009 that is already in the usual outlets is that of Yves Saint Laurent.
It is an elegant, mysterious and sensual collection, inspired by the textures and haute couture fashion trends of the same firm and is characterized by flawless, pale skin without imperfections, pearl gray eyes, intense and dark plum lips and nails in gray too.
My favorite products are the beautiful 5-tone palette, among which are matte and pearlescent shadows around two main shades: the brown color in the Bronze Gold palette and the gray color in the Midnight palette.
Another of the star products of the season are the Pallette Y face powder, with a curious drawing on the palette marking the Y of the brand in a darker tone than the rest of the powders in the palette. These powders can be used both as powders for the whole face as for contouring or as a blush, depending on the intensity of color we want.
A new product is coming to join the YSL family. These are cream blushes and in this collection there are 3 shades of Crème de Blush to apply comfortably with your fingers and achieve the “good face” effect that cream blushes usually leave. The three shades available in limited edition are a peach shade (Velvety Peach), a pink shade (Powdery Rose) and a tan shade (Silkt Praliné).
In addition to all these products, the collection is completed with a liquid and a compact foundation, two different types of lipsticks, a gloss, duo shadow palettes, mascara, cream shadows and nail polishes. A very complete collection of elegant tones very suitable for all tastes and with a golden, shiny and sophisticated packaging, like everything that surrounds this brand.
As you can see in the promotional photo of the collection, the look is truly precious, subtle and elegant.
On the Spanish website of Yves Saint Laurent they have not yet updated and despite the fact that when entering the Makeup part we found the promotional photo, then you cannot find the products for sale yet (what a pity that that always happens, you do not know the anger that gives me….). You can see them in the United States online store. In the YSL perfumeries and stands of El Corte Inglés you can buy all these products, yes, at golden prices … The palettes of 5 colors cost € 47, the compact € 50, the cream blushes € 34 and the enamels of nails € 20.
I think the look is very clonable with shades from other brands and I don’t rule out trying to copy it shortly. I’ll tell you about it!
