Yves Saint Laurent Makeup Collection for Holiday 2011

I am very happy to show you my absolutely favourite holiday 2011 makeup collection, the gorgeous tuxedo inspired collection by YSL.

This is what Yves Saint Laurent  himself once said:  “ If I were to keep just one item of clothes, it would be the tuxedo…” I have to admit that YSL (women’s) tuxedo is a dream of mine, I hope to get it one day.

No wonder that Lloyd Simmonds was inspired by tuxedo and created this stunning collection. This is what he says about it:

“Black is a color. Without black there is no line. At Yves Saint Laurent, black is rebel, potent, yet all so elegant. It is alive, it is the supreme emotion. Its force comes from the interior. It is light itself.”

Collection includes:

 Face

Palette Blanc Terriblement, £39.00/ €53.00

The white tuxedo. The complexion illuminator palette. Shimmering silver, shimmering pink, shimmering violet. Three white hues delicately lit up with precious pearls, catching the light like a magnet to give an absolute glow effect.

Eyes

Palette Noir Terriblement, £39.00/ €53.00

Black velvet, black silk, black moiré, black lamé, white satin.

Inspired by the tuxedo, the Noir Terriblement and the Blanc Terriblement palettes both celebrate the emblematic spirit of evening clothes that moves effortlessly throughout time. Nestling inside a beautiful gold case, adorned by a pleated belt and embroidered with the Yves Saint Laurent logo. It can be worn around the wrist like a bracelet, a nocturnal fetish.

 Ombres Duolumières, £28.00/  €40.00

  • N° 39 Gold Lamé/Velvet Black
  • N° 41 Silver Moiré/Black Flannel

Shopping In Store and Some Chanel and YSL Swatches

I have a lot of makeup products that I’ve got myself for Christmas that I want to tell you about and I’ve also got several beauty gifts from my friends which was totally amazing. So stay tuned! And this is just a random post about   beauty shopping…

This weekend I went shopping and also visited some makeup counters, which reminded me how much I love on-line shopping! No one is pushing, now crowds and no one wants  you  to buy everything they have. I could go on and on but I am sure that you all are familiar with the situation.

I really wanted to get myself a Rouge Coco but for some reason I couldn’t pick the shade that I would like. I know that sounds strange but it’s very hard for me to choose a lipstick  I would love on myself. But I really loved the other thing by Chanel and I am talking about the Vanites quad. It is so so pretty, the colours are simply amazing.

Here is the swatch and although it’s not the best photo ever, it gives you the idea about the shades.

I’ve also wanted to pick a
