Yves Saint Laurent Eye Colour Touch - Steel Blue
This is a lovely color from YSL’s spring 2008 Pop Romanticism Collection. It’s very true to the color described, as it was a very nice light gray/blue on my skin. A pastel color that did not make me look washed out. The formula was fantastic – light and airy on my skin and the shadow lasted all day without creasing or smudging. The pen applicator was so easy to use and quick too! About two swipes on each lid are all I needed. I sometimes finished blending with a brush, but it is certainly possible to still get a very polished look without it. Another bonus is it’s also water resistant, so it wears very well in hot/humid weather. I loved pairing this with a soft rose on the cheeks and lips, which worked well for daytime, and with an extra coat of mascara and a high shine gloss on top of the rose lip for an evening look. This grey will work with all skin tones as it’s not a pale pastel; the blue gives the grayness depth that will show up on very dark skin tones as well e.g. Serena Williams – Alex Wek. I would love to see them expand into even more colors for fall 2008!
A Marc Jacobs cosmetic pouch filled with cosmetics from Nars, YSL, and Armani (just to name a few) seems like any girl's dream. And for $200? A treat even in the toughest of financial times.
There are plenty of makeup palettes out there, but rarely do I enjoy all of the colors. YSL's Palette de Maquillage includes three eye shadows, three lipsticks, one gloss, one highlighter, and heart-shaped blush. Who wouldn't fall...
