A little while ago I blogged about the imminent launch of the YSL Devoted to Fans Facebook Palette (click here to read my post); the palette has now been launched so let’s have a closer look at it!
YSL Devoted To Fans #1 palette (Limited Edition) *, £39, YSL Facebook page
This is an exclusive edition of the YSL Pure Chromatics palette, available only to YSL’s Facebook fans. I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the palette at the Facebook Head Office in London, but unfortunately I got very ill with tonsillitis a couple of days before the launch and couldn’t make it to London. Despite all that, the lovely Liz at YSL was kind enough to send me one of the palettes to try; needless to say I was over the moon with excitement and couldn’t wait to share my thoughts with you guys.
My firsts words when I saw the palette were: ‘Ysis Likes this’ :) The palette looks striking and it’s definitely one of a kind. They are not the most pigmented eyeshadows I’ve ever tried, but you can build up the colour. The cool thing about them is you can wear them dry or wet, which will give you a pearl finish and a long-lasting lustrous glaze finish respectively.
The next challenge was to try and create a wearable makeup look using all 4 shades on the palette; at first I wanted a blue base to go with a slightly smokey eye, but I finally settled for a purple base with a defined smokey blue bottom lash-line. Here’s what I came up with:
Overall, I think the colours worked really well together. I used the lighter shade as a highlighter on the brow bone, the darker shade on the crease, the blue shade to line my lower lash-line and the purple shade as a base.
What do you think? If you would like to see a Step-by-Step tutorial on how to create this look leave a comment below or tweet me at @lebeautygirl :)
