This Summer, YSL is launching newly designed and reformulated eyeshadow palette Couture Palette. This range of eyeshadow is created to capture the essence of Yves Saint Laurent. The range consists of 11 shades – ranging from soft shades to colorful and bold shades to play with. I have with me no 7 Parisienne to show you, hope you enjoy this post 🙂
The packaging of YSL Couture Palette is the same as the previous eyeshadow palette – encased in luxurious gold casing with the iconic YSL logo. The colors presented in Parisienne is inspired by the twilight of parisian apartment. The colors in this palette are exceptionally girly in a captivating way.
The shades in this palette are very girly, sweet and the colors are easy to wear. The shades are shimmery but without giving any over shimmery look. The shades in this palette are mostly sheer, not too pigmented. It’s such an easy to use palette without having to worry that you’re applying too much products
- The base color is a light taupe shade with shimmers
- Highlight shade is the frosty soft pink – I recommend to dab your brush lightly into this shade as dabing into it too hard will create a too frosty finish
- Shade 1 is a brown – purple shade, this shade has less shimmer and it is less frosty compared to the other shades
- Shade 2 is a light plum shade with shimmer
- Shade 3 is a shimmery pink, at some lighting it looks a bit lilac to me.
Swatches according to the shades: B – H – 2 – 3 – 1
The shades in this palette could never go wrong. My personal favorite shade has got to be shade 3. It’s such a sweet and natural shade without being boring. I love how this shade brightens my overall look without making me looking washed out.
Although most of the time I would opt for a more pigmented shades, I would say this is one of the sheer palette that has won my heart. Wearing the shades are not a chore at all, not to mention that there’s no fall out at all. I applied the shades using eyeshadow brush and the eyeshadow sets easily and stays for a good 5 hours with no signs of fading.
I did a simple look with Parisienne. Please pardon the eyeliner on my eyelid, I wasn’t being patient to wait for my liquid liner to dry 🙂
If you have not checked this range yet, you should! The range of colors are beautiful and pretty wide, so there should be one that catches your attention 😉
