Yves Saint Laurent, better known of late as YSL is selling something all right, but it appears to be the sex lifestyle more so than the makeup or clothing of late. Even in the YSL Boho Stones spring 2016 makeup collection presentation, the ad shows off a naked lady with her eyes and lips painted perfectly, a naked doll with a ribbon around her neck. Then again, that makeup most certainly has all the sex appeal of a female embodiment of a kitten. Between the delicate pinks and pretty green colors, the palettes of elegance and pure femininity, this is one collection that beckons us closer, entrancing us with its special hues and bold magnificence in a rather sweet manner, portraying an image of ease and insouciance. But what exactly does the collection include? January 1st of 2016 is the international launch date of the collection and you can get your favorite products on YSLBeautyus.com then!
YSL Palette Face Palette Collector Gypsy Opale ($65.00) (Limited Edition)
This limited edition item is quite the marble beauty with the ability to update any skin color with its light green to minimize redness, pale purple to enhance the face’s natural brightness and radiance, and a soft pink to give those cheeks a rosy blush, giving your visage just the right glow.
YSL Couture Palette Collector Indie Jaspe ($65.00) (Limited Edition)
With this item, know that your eyes never saw a lovelier palette of colors that really capture the natural effects of spring at dawn and dusk. The colors are perfectly matched and look quite lovely in the pale iridescent green, the sage green, the peach, the yellow, the gold and the silver, all colors that have been seen on the spring/summer 2016 runway shows and ones we knew would be matching all the latest trends for the upcoming seasons. Even the lid is framed by green jasper and has a very natural spring effect.
YSL Fusion Ink Blush ($36.00)
Do you like ink blush? It is certainly a newer concept and quite a move away from the powders, but it is strong and gorgeous and very much made for the bolder lady that we easily see wearing the YSL clothing. Granted with moisturizing properties and up to 12-hour resistance, these ink blushes come in the following lovely shades:
• Electric Red ” red orange
• Pink Attraction ” pink
• Spicy Vibes ” orange
• Edgy Berry ” purple-pink
YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils ($36.00) (Limited Edition)
The spring 2016 makeup trends feature some unconventional mascara colors, which can easily be found within the YSL collection. We are not sure which decade YSL likes the most, but it seems to have a rather major liking for the eccentric. Plus, these are limited edition so you might want to get them while they are still around!
• Bohemian Pink ” bright pink
• Hippie Green ” jade green
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain ($36.00)
Lips are nothing without a persistent shine these days it appears and YSL will be aiding in the shimmering trends with a lipstick of its own that is more gloss than anything else.
• 42 Tangerine Boho ” peachy pink
• 43 Rose Folk ” hazy pink
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick ($36.00)
Fans of a more matte lip makeup look can try any of these two bright lipsticks YSL offers for spring:
• 6 Pink in Devotion ” bright pink hibiscus
• 12 Corail Incandescent ” bright coral
YSL Gloss Volupte ($32.00)
Glossy stains and shining lipsticks aside, we also have volume giving gloss that creates the perfect pucker and pout with a coral hue and a reddish fuchsia.
• 204 Corail Trapeze ” coral
• 206 Fuchsia Oran ” reddish fuchsia
YSL La Laque Couture de Opalescents ($27.00) (Limited Edition)
Finally, the last of the limited edition items in this gorgeous collection includes two nail polish lacquers with a pearlescent finish. If peace is that color, we definitely say let’s color the world in peace!
