Aglow with elegance and sensuality, the Yves Saint Laurent woman plays the game by her own rules as she ventures into the night. As dusk falls, she radiates a magnetic charm and an aura of mystery.

Palette Y (Collector Powder for the Complexion)

Dedicated to a beautiful complexion, two natural shades illuminate the face: a universal, luminous peach to unify all skin tones in transparency, and an iridescent brown to heighten the cheekbones and sculpt the features. Fine, silky powders with radianceboosting pigments reflect the subtlest rays of light to glorify the complexion with a veil of luminosity – in the celebrated compact with the YSL monogram.

Creme de Blush (Cream Blush)

Velvety soft, airy, as light as a cloud… A delicious texture that melts on the skin and brings a rosy warmth to the cheeks. A sensual cream blush that becomes an irresistible powdery veil on contact with the skin, accentuates the cheekbones and instantly illuminates the face. No layered effect, no mask feeling… just a touch of bare-skin color for a radiant, natural-looking glow.

  • Velvety Peach
  • Powdery Rose
  • Silky Praline


In the game of seduction, everything is permitted… A diaphanous complexion, scintillating eyes and purple lips… The entire harmony expresses both sensuality and femininity… Sublime and bewitching, she calls the tune.

Bronze Gold

The splendor and magic of an evening in Paris, of light blending with baroque woodwork, gilded bronzes, and the crystals of magnificent chandeliers to embellish a woman’s eyes with precious radiance. Eyes rimmed with ebony and brightened with dazzling yellow gold, cheeks take on an amber hue, lips are adorned with voluptuous shine…

Oooh very pretty! 🙂 Especially like the Y powder and the Midnight quint. I love purples. Just got the Dior Pearly lilac quint from MUA and it’s so beautiful. 🙂

The Midnight quint is definitely stunning.

I’m so glad you got the Pearly Lilac quint after all, Anitacska!

Love the look, especially the eyes. Does anyone know if the colours can be dupes with MAC products?
No point in buying something I kind of already have… 😉

It’s a great look! Not sure, since I haven’t seen anything in person yet. I am sure you could recreate the promo look without YSL, though.

YSL is a bit pricey, but they’re right around Dior and Chanel, so it’s in line with high end for me.

Love YSL, have one palette and one l/g, but it is pricey. The model is GORGEOUS!!! Not sure if I can pull off the look though…NC15 in the winter, with green eyes(brown centres) and dark brown hair???

Of course you can! Our tone is very similar (NC 15, hazel eyes, dark brown hair) and I wear the colours often. The look is fiance approved as well.

Gorgeous. Love the browney shades palette and I’m going all sloppy over the cream blushes. This will probs come out in the UK a few weeks later, just in time for my birthday. Can’t wait to descend on this collection.

Damn! More Rouge Volupte shades – I am doomed!
Does anyone know what YSL eyeshadows are like? Are they pigmented? Are they are good as MAC shadows?

YSL’s mascara and eyeshadows are excellent.
I do own an eyeshadow quad from the 2007 holiday. The pigmentation is excellent (the best eyeshadows of my make up collection), the colors are multidimentional and look very unique and rich. Applying them is easy, blending them is easy. In many way they are better in quality than some Mac eyeshadows I don’t consider to be very good (like “goldmine” which texture I don’t like although it’s typically my style of colors or “ray of light” which feels cheap).

Yep, I second that. YSL do some really good quality shadows – high pigmented, long lasting, especially the ones in these quints.
The summer collector powders for eyes/face however, tend to be a little like shimmery sheer washes of colour – but these pictured are definitely not from the sheer, shimmery family.

teah i was just going to put that- i love the green e/s pallette! ive never tried the YSL brand, so dont know anything about it , but man is it expensive!!!! 56$ for e/s pallette and 34$ for a l/s – NOWAY

Wow, how amazing is that first photo? I wouldn’t have even cared what the collection looked like after seeing that–it’s AWESOME. LOVE it!

Are those creme de blush a new kind of blush? I know there were touche blush.. has anyone tried them?
I don’t know why but I want that gray mascara!

I can’t wait! Rouge Volupte is the best lipstick formula hands down! I’m going to break down and try the eyeshadow.

God, those eyes are something… They are amazing love it <3

And i loved the pink powder blush with Y 😀 it’s so adorable..

I can’t wait. What a gorgeous photo! I’ll have to start saving for this collection. What is the lip color on the model?

I really dislike the photo :(( One of the worst promo shots in my opinion. The girl is gorgeous but dark lips look so out of place with snow-white skin and extremely heavy eye makeup as if lips belong to another person or where Photoshopped to make them look tiny and remove any facial lines. Maybe her white top and eyes rolled to the side makes that photo look so weird and frightening as a mask, a black top and some bronzer would make it better. Being just as pale, I’d give people shivers with that shade of lipstick on. Good thing I already tried that look in the past and looked horrid in photos. Love the bracelet though! And the violet eyeshadow palette looks stunning.

I like the photo. Probably because I see from the photograph’s angle. Smooth, good lighting, no shadows… And I think the photo shows what it is supposed to. But I don’t like the bracelet.

Hey Sunshine,
I’m that pale, and I have found that I can wear that color lipstick (but not red). I used to shy away from it, but it can work if you do your other features right. I had a fabulous makeup artist show me how. In fact, he has converted me to wearing colors I assumed I could never wear. The proof has been in the compliments. 🙂

Hey Alice,
I’d love to hear more please! Did he do it very sheer and put some lighter gloss in the center? I used to think the way I was doing it looked cool and people were very kind. I was applying a generous layer of no-transfer liquid lipstick in a similar shade with gloss over it but when I saw myself in photos… In the promo pic, girl’s lips are the size of entire made-up eye, a visual effect of dark lipstick making everything look smaller. Larger mouth looks just as strange though – a white face with dark hair and a very dark smile, almost ear-to-ear in my case. Hubby says it looks cute but I know it could be much better with lighter lips. Yeah, it’s alright for running errands but this color really requires some self-tanner or bronzer before taking pics… Maybe a dimmed lighting or candlelight could fix that?

Sunshine, I am really sorry for the long delay in answering your question. You hit the nail on the head! The artist used that color, but it was sheer (definitely not one of those pigment-rich colors). No liner. Then, we put some gloss in the center. I don’t think we needed the gloss, but it makes my lips look “less thin.” I had to admit, the effect was stunning. He also did very neutral eyes to go with it, so that I wouldn’t look like a “painted whore.” My skin, very pale, actually looked like porcelain with the lipstick done that way. I don’t do that all the time, but I know that when I want a look that is a bit more dramatic than my usual everyday look, I can do it. Recommend you try, but make sure to use a lipstick that has some sheerness to it (and YSL has some excellent ones). Good Luck!

I love the promo picture. Ah Christine, could you please try to do this look and post it here? I’m sure you would a fantastic job doing that.
