YSL Spring 2011 Makeup Collection


YSL Spring 2011 Makeup Collection

Do not be fooled by appearances. Look for the fire beneath the ice. She hides her wild bohemian side behind a mask of innocence. Delicateness of a bare shoulder. Seduction embodied by her every move. Pink worn next to the skin: carnal pink, passion pink, excitement pink. A touch of powder. Fluttering eyelashes. Stolen kisses. Artist of her own beauty, she is an Yves Saint Laurent woman. The color caresses her bare skin and illuminates her porcelain complexion: her cheekbones intensely flushed. Her lips kissed with in a vibrant pink petal. The intensity of her piercing eyes, heightened with graphic inky blues. Exquisite shades of shadow and light.

“After a rock and baroque themed winter, spring is back with a burst of fresh roses to flush the cheeks while enhancing the complexion with a seemingly innocent purity. Sensual full lips in bright pink or coral light up the face. A bold touch of eyeliner completes the look.” — Lloyd Simmonds

Palette Celebration ($65.00) (Limited Edition)

A versatile complexion highlighter and the ultimate beauty enhancer, Palette Celebration imparts a new radiance to the face for flawless skin. The powder peach shade diffuses light, producing a delicately satin-smooth glow that is 100% Couture. Suitable for all complexions, apply it to the face, eyes, on the neckline and shoulders, any time.

Creme de Blush ($38.00) (New)

An irresistible product, easy to apply with an instinctive and sensual motion: just smile to bring out the contours of the cheekbones, then apply Crème de Blush gently with your fingertips. On contact with the skin, the creamy texture turns into a light powdery film. Velvety soft, light and airy, its exceptionally smooth texture blends perfectly and the color adapts like a “second skin”.

Purple and Violet Eyeliner Comparisons & Dupes

Here is our last eyeliner comparison — blue-based purples!

  • NARS Manon Eyeliner is a blue-based violet purple. There’s no shimmer, just pure purple. (Review)
  • Urban Decay Ransom 24/7 Liner is an iridescent violet purple with a pinky undertone. (Review)
  • MAC Rich Purple Chromagraphic Pencil is a dark, cool-toned purple (Review)
  • L’Oreal HIP Violet Volt Chrome Eyeliner is a grayed purple with a metallic sheen. (Review
  • Make Up For Ever #11L Aqua Eyes is a violet purple with a satin sheen. (Review)
  • Tarina Tarantino Amethyst Android Hyperliner is a violet purple with a satin sheen. It is slightly bluer than Make Up For Ever #11L. (Review)
  • Urban Decay Lust 24/7 Liner is a medium-dark, blue-based violet. It is bluer and darker than Make Up For Ever #11L. (Review)

Thoughts

DUPE ALERT! NARS Manon Eyeliner is a lighter version of MAC Rich Purple Chromagraphic Pencil.

DUPE ALERT! Makeup For Ever #11L Aqua Eyes is a slightly more purple (less blue) than Urban Decay’s Ransom 24/7 Liner–they are the closest in terms of color here, though.

Formula/Wear: NARS Eyeliner is the only one that I have any issues with based on my experience–it just smudges, migrates, and generally is a mess on me but many readers had positive experiences (and others who had similar experiences to mine), so I recommend reading the review for a fuller perspective.  MAC’s Chromagraphic Pencil is one of the longest wearing pencils I’ve come across and incredibly pigmented, too.
