Two weeks ago I was back to my hometown Jakarta for few days. Although Jakarta’s cosmetic market is not as big as Singapore or Sydney, it has YSL make up! How I wish Singapore would bring back YSL again. Although Changi airport carries YSL make up, but the collection is quite poor. The product range is not as wide as it should be.
During my trip to Jakarta, I bought this palette and has literally fall in love with it. YSL Pure Chromatics 4 Wet & Dry Eyeshadow in #3 consists of 4 colors; two of them are blue toned and the other two are brown toned. The color combination in this palette is very unique, blue and brown. The SA at Jakarta told me that the color combination would look cool and different than usual. I am not into blue color too much but I think it’s a good idea to pair blue and brown to soften a “too much blue” eyeshadow.
The texture was really smooth and almost no fall outs! Moreover this palette can be worn both wet and dry. You can choose to spray your brush and apply a “wet” eyeshadow on you. This will show up the color more than applied dry. So far I have only worn this once and it was good. It’s has silky texture that when you dab your finger you can feel that it’s very smooth and easy to apply.
Overall I love all the shades here except the baby blue on the top right. It looks frosty and dead. Nevertheless I am still loving this palette as it provides good pigmentation and unique color combination. Here’s a swatch for you and I hope I can show some FOTD for you soon 🙂
