YSL Northern Lights Makeup Collection for Christmas 2012

I honestly do not think that YSL makeup collection Northern Lights could be more  beautiful.  Aurora Borealis with it’s unique colours and shades was the inspiration for Lloyd Simmonds.

This is my favourite YSL beauty promo of this year, definitely. So elegant and chic.

Here is what he says:

“The Aurora Borealis, or northern lights, are incredibly vivid and I have many memories of witnessing this magical spectacle from my childhood. Their lights inspired me to create this collection of intense colours, shot through with violet and midnight blue and sprinkled with slivers of pearl, like a star-filled night.”

It is one of my dreams to see Northern Lights! How gorgeous is that?!

But back to the collection, the products are:

Golden Gloss (£22) – No55 N°55, glacial blue with a fresh, transparent highlight and N°56, snow white with pearly, lunar highlights.. These are my favourite, they capture Aurora Borealis perfectly, in my opinion.

Star product of the collection – Boréal Palette Polar Night – Highlighter Powder (£39.50, LE)

La Laque Couture Top Coat (£18)  No33 Premiere Nege, a  sparky top coat.

Pure Chromatics  (£39, LE) No12 Boréal Palette Arctic Night, comes with a

Yves Saint Laurent Candy Face Makeup Collection for Spring 2012

YSL Spring 2012 makeup collection is all about our favourite candies, pastels and girly shades.

Here is what  Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Yves Saint Laurent Make-up, says about it himself:

“The gleam of an infinite profusion of dazzling fruit jellies, translucent raspberry and wild strawberry, mandarin orange, melon, mango and persimmon bring a gorgeous flush to the Yves Saint Laurent woman’s face. Her smile is as bright as shining sugared drops and syrups: shocking cherry, tangerine, grape and pomegranate, crystallized rose petals, mint and chocolate.”

The star product of the collection is Vinyl Candy Palette, £39/ €55

It was inspired by the box of candies.  You get a beautiful pink compact with golden YSl logo with four shades inside:

  • 2 pearly eye shadows: luminous raspberry and lilac subtly infused with pearly pigments.
  • 2 satiny eye shadows: blackcurrant and rose petals play up the magic of chiaroscuro.

Lloyd Simmond’s tip: “There are various ways to modulate the intensity of the color: with the brush, to diffuse a vaporous, smoky halo or with the foam applicator tip, to create a lustrous hue, or to mute the iridescent effect”.

Ombre 5 Lumieres No13  (House of Fraser exclusive, LE), £39.50/ €57

Voile De Blush, water-based, transparent and moisturizing gel blush £28/ €38
