YSL Golden Glow (13) Couture Palette

YSL Golden Glow (13) Couture Palette ($60.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, neutral eyeshadow palette with subtle, warmer shades. The eyeshadows are supposed to be “intense” in color, long-wearing, and crease-proof. I like the way YSL’s Couture eyeshadow formula looks on the lid, but it is a formula that really needs a primer to last through the day–so if you typically wear primer, and you don’t already have neutrals covered, you might like this one. The eyeshadows are very soft, lightly dusty but “melt” a bit, where they meld with the skin and don”t just sit on it and look dry. Overall, the pigmentation was semi-opaque to opaque with most shades blending easily. They all faded noticeably within six to seven hours on me, though.

YSL Rosy Glow (14) Couture Palette

YSL Rosy Glow (14) Couture Palette ($60.00 for 0.16 oz.) contains a mix of warmer neutrals with satin to frost finishes. The eyeshadows are supposed to be “intense” in color, long-wearing, and crease-proof. The palette largely performed as past Couture palettes have, which is with decent pigmentation, softer/dustier textures, and below-average wear but does improve significantly when used over a primer. While I typically like the end result of how the formula looks on the lid, this palette had one major miss–the light gold–that was just sheer and messy to work with, which is not at all the “intense color” promised.

YSL Indie Jasper Couture Palette

YSL Indie Jaspe Couture Palette ($60.00 for 0.18 oz.) contains five shades in warmer gold, peach, two greens, and then a cooler silver sparkle. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “intense color” that is “long-wearing and crease-proof” — to the tune of “12-hour hold.” This formula runs dusty/powdery, so there’s a dryness that just don’t work well on bare skin as the eyeshadows tended to sheer out and fade quickly.

YSL Peace Green & Love Pink La Laque Couture

YSL Peace Green La Laque Couture ($28.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is a light-medium aqua green with warm undertones and fine, pearly shimmer that shifts from warmer copper to light pink. It was a thicker, but watery, polish that was hard for me to apply evenly, as the polish would pull to the edges and create an uneven surface, even if I laid my hands flat to try and help the polish level. It had semi-opaque coverage, and I didn’t notice the shimmer create visible lines/streaks. It lasted for seven days with minor tip wear. Cult Nails Thrive (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Rescue Beauty Lounge Liberty (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On (LE, $7.50) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).
