Tag: Yves Saint Laurent makeup
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.”
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.
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
One of the products that is almost always in my makeup bag, besides this eye brow pencil, is Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat and right now I am using shade #2.
I think this products doesn’t need an introduction as pretty much everyone knows Touche Elat. It is basically a hybrid of highlighter and concealer.
I don’t like using heavy concealers under my eyes so I use this one almost every day to highlight and conceal the area under my eyes. Touche Eclat doesn’t hide heavy dark circles but it is perfect if yours are not that bad.
I’ve also used this product on lots of people and

When I got a link from the lovely Teddy from Planete Beaute to the new YSL Fall 2011 makeup collection I instantly fell in love with the promo images, they are so gorgeous! I think Lloyd Simmonds did a great job with the colours, simply stunning.
There are a lot of different shades of blue, purple and green…beautiful.
The palette from the collection is called Jardin de Minuit. My favourite shade is the purple on the left but I also like the mint green in the middle.
