YSL Fall 2009 Collection Sneak Peek – Part 2

YSL for Fall 2009 also features two new 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes Palettes in Bronze Gold and Midnight ($56.00 each). I was able to check out Midnight, which is a stunning selection of silver/gray matched with a bright pop of slightly cool-toned silver flecked pink and a smoky shade of plummy purple. There are a bright silver, a grayish silver, and a matte black eyeshadows also included in the palette. All of the eyeshadows are housed in a “gold” palette with traditional YSL branding. I love the packaging, because I feel like it seems more elegant than traditional plastic packaging, though it does attract fingerprints like crazy!

    This is different than what I expected (hence your swatches are really helpful Christine!! ).. So the promo model was wearing something else on her eyes?

    So pretty!

    Not much to these shadows :( They look so vibrant in the picture but from the swatch you can tell that there’s not much pigmentation and for $56…. I know it’s YSL and the packaging is pretty but not $56 worth.

    • hi

      I agree! I was hoping that the purple would be this rich, shimmering dark plum shade (almost like MAC Nocturnelle and MAC Shadowy Lady had a baby!), but it just looks like matte, half pigmented gray-brown-plum in the swatches. :( Everything else has the correct color but they apply too sheerly for me to shell out 56 bucks on this!

      Agreed! I think the black looks ok, but there are so many good black shadows out there without having to shell out $50-something for a pallet with 4 other lackluster shadows…

    • I always find that matte-r shadows go on softer, usually, and all you need is a base to remedy that, which is a must no matter what look I do!

    Hmm! This does not look like the eyeshadows in the promo image, and neither does Bronze Gold look like it. So what is she wearing?

    looking at the promo and then at the palette, I’m guessing the light blue is the lid colour, whilst the liner is a mixture of the black and the blue-grey? How did they get them to show up so bold on the model when they’re clearly very sheer? Has anybody figured out good dupe shades for these?

  6. Vitória

    What the shit? These colors look nothing like the promo pics. On the model, they’re quite green, and these look just… plain silver. And not pigmented AT ALL!

  7. Wilcoa

    This is really disappointing. The colors look so vibrant in the pan, but nothing like the swatches, they’re dull and not so pigmented.

    Hey there, any idea if the YSL midnight would be sold in Singapore? And if yes, when do you think it would be available?
