YSL Indie Jaspe 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.

Indie Jaspe #1 is a light, peachy orange with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft and finely-milled, but it was dusty and prone to sheering out. It started to fade after seven hours on me (not even close to 12-hours!).

Indie Jaspe #3 is a sparkling silver. It is more like a loose glitter/sparkle than an eyeshadow, as none of it sticks well to skin–I had a ton of fall out within a couple of hours of wearing this–and it’s better patted over a tacky base or glitter adhesive, though it was impossible to make opaque for me.

Indie Jaspe #4 is a muted, dark olive green with warm undertones and a soft, satin shimmer finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, finely-milled texture that was just a smidgen dusty. The color wore well for eight hours on me before fading. Tom Ford Beauty Last Dance #4 (PiP, ) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

Indie Jaspe #5 is a pale, minty green with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was a little dusty. It sheered out on the lid, unfortunately, and it didn’t adhere well to bare skin–really needed a good, tacky primer to shine. It lasted for six hours. NARS Zambezi (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Cle de Peau Harmony (Right) (PiP, ) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Abracadabra (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar).

I swatched this in store, and couldn’t get much pigment, wasn’t impressed. IDK, have never been impressed by YSL shadows. It’s a shame though because the color combo is perfect for spring, will have to re-create it from my existing stash.

Yes! I almost never return makeup, but the YSL palette I bought last year… I just… I couldn’t, man. It just got SO muddy on me. And what’s the point in having a palette of you can’t combine the shadows?

Yikes Christine! I think you got a bad palette or something. Boho Stones is gorgeous on me and is one of my current favs. Of course I never wear shadow without primer so that may be the difference. The shades didn’t last 12 hours but they lasted between 8 and 10 depending on the shade.

I did a gradient with mine. I used the lightest shade as base, the light green shade on the inner half of my lid, the silver shade on the outer half of my lid, the dark green as contour and liner with the peach as highlight on the very inner corners. I added the Marc Jacobs Peridot on my lower lash line to brighten it up. It made for a really pretty eye.

I agree, Nancy, it’s slightly sickening. It’s as if they think that a beautiful looking palette means they can get away with a sub-par performance. Not impressed.

These colors and that compact are soooo beautiful! I love gorgeous packaging. I’d love to find these shades in a creaseless cream shadow πŸ™‚

It never fails to amaze me that high end luxury companies can produce amazing lipstick time and again, but ALWAYS seem to produce crap eyeshadows. I just don’t get it. They know how to make good stuff. They’ve all done it at least once!!!! UGHHHHH. Anyway, this is so pretty I want to buy it just to collect. But in reality I’ll probably spend money on products that actually work well and I can use.
BTW Christine, have you heard of the brand Strobe Cosmetics? They’re a new-ish indie brand with FANTASTIC eyeshadow. They have all shimmer/satin/metallic right now but they’re coming out with duochrome and MATTES soon! I’m dying to try them. You should check them out!
