  1. I’ll be interested to see how Jade Imperial compares to L’Oreal’s Safari Chic. I feel like I’ve seen a L’oreal dupe for Bronze Pyrite too, but it’s not in my collection

  2. I love the eyeshadow palette, such pretty colors!

  3. Jade

    Pretty colours. I don’t feel I’ve seen much YSL on the blog, I’ll have a looksee…

  4. Yellowlantern

    Jade Imperial looks intriguing. I like how dusty it is. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a cheaper dupe.

  5. Stacey

    What’s with these companies? Yes, it is spring, but who can wear these cotton candy colors on a normal basis?

  6. 18thCenturyFox

    Nothing here stands out as particularly intriguing ( yes I need my cosmetics to FASCinate me) so I will pass..

  7. Esme

    I adore that purple lip color (Violine Surrealiste, I’m guessing?), but the name “Arty Stone” is SO BAD. What does it even mean?

  8. ReneeP

    That eyeshadow palette has my 2 favorite colors. I need every pink and purple eyeshadow I see. I need to stop! I can’t wait to see it in person.

  9. Brenda

    These 80′s vibe collections make me smile. I don’t have the colouring (way to warm/olive toned) too pull off the pastels and blues, but I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup in the 80′s (I got to experience the clothing though, hahaha) so it’s almost a second chance!

    It brings back happy, carefree memories for me :)

    I’m liking that Jade Imperial nail polish on the model. The eyeshadows are pretty but nothing I don’t already have. Don’t need that lipcolor, and it doesn’t say “spring” to me like the Jade Imperial does.

  11. To be honest, the quad makes me nauseous… mixing blue, green, pink and purple? My stomach is upset just thinking about it!

    The nail polishes, however, look great, Jade Impérial in particular.

    • Sarah

      Blue, green, pink and purple is a complementary colour scheme, but I can get that not everyone would be brave enough to wear it.

  12. Oooh I didn’t see that, but I’m totally excited to see they have 3 new shades of Crème de Blush for this collection! This is THE best cream blush in the galaxy, IMO.

  13. ZG

    As much as I love the campaign, the colors are not universally skin tone friendly. Sorry YSL, I will have to not include this in my makeup kit.

  14. Laura

    I’m starting to really dislike all these shimmer shadows. A matte or two would be nice.

  15. Joanna

    I love the look of that lipstick (on the model)!

    I have a feeling it won’t look so purple in person, or on me, but I’ll check it out in-store.

    The only thing that’s caught my attention is the possibility of the cream blush in brown. I’m forever on the prowl for HG contour shades, so I’ll have to check it out.

    As for all the pastels, they’re not even worth the time; I can’t wear them, nor do I like them, which is why I rarely even look forward to buying makeup in the Spring & Summer. It seems every brand is going back to the more “traditional” shades of the season, which is good; I’ll be saving *alot* of money, LOL. Hopefully, the trend will continue toward the Fall & Winter collections, and there will be more “traditional” shades there, too.

      The “brown” cream blush is actually more of a brown toned rose, not really a true brown. Don’t really see this as a contour color sadly, I am always looking for HG cream contours as well and so few people do them right.

      • xamyx

        Well, there’s $40 saved. I’m trying to not go the MAC route, but it looks like a trip to the PRO store is on the horizon (I’m just so lazy to make the trip, LOL).

  17. wow I really love these colors! too bad some people aren’t feeling it.

  18. Tea Matesic Bugarin (RedHead)

    Nail polishes are beautiful! The rest didn’t get me excited at all.

  19. I love the color placement with the eyeshadow and the lip color.

  20. gaby

    I’m thinking the lip color has to be one of the new glossy stains. Only makes sense she’s wearing that since they did release new shades. The sheer candy isn’t opaque enough to achieve this color, so it’s either glossy stain 23 or 26.

  21. Dora

    Nordstrom doesn’t have this quad, but promoting the old No.5. The SA said there might be issues with the production she guess.

  22. L

    Where do I get the palette from? I tried online but no luck..

  23. jessica

    I can’t find this palette online or in store and I don’t see it at sephora either??
