YSL Summer Look 2012 Pure Chromatics #8 Earthy and Eye Pencil in #8 Luminescent Gold

Summer is almost over but this does not stop me from buying summer make up. If you have been following us on instagram (@memoiselle) , I have posted photos from my Jakarta trip. I went back last week for my grandma’s birthday and I bought few items during my trip. I bought Pure Chromatics #8 Earthy, Eye Pencil #8 Luminescent Gold, YSL Touche Eclat and YSL Rouge Volupte in #7. 2 of the products I bought are part of YSL Summer Look 2012. Not everything I show here are mine, some are my mom’s :)

I have reviewed YSL Rouge Volupte #7 Pink Lingerie in my previous post. In this post I am going to review the Pure Chromatics and the Eye Pencil. This post is going to be picture heavy :)

 

Pure Chromatics #8 Earthy 

Pure Chromatics eyeshadow can be used wet and dry. That’s the reason why I love this range. #8 Earthy consists of 4 shimmering color. I like 3 colors from this pan. The upper left color is a nice color that can be used as a base. It’s a nice neutral color that won’t look too much for my skin (MAC NC20). The upper right color is the color that I least liked from this pan. It’s just a shimmering color that can be used as a highlight. The lower left color is very pretty too. This can be used as a base for a darker skin tone color or as a crease color for a fairer skintone. My favorite color from this palette is the lower right color, it’s a gorgeous khaki shade. I am surely using this to create a soft smoky look. The color is great for smokey look as this is not too dark for a daily use.

I swatched both dry and wet for you to see. The color shows much better when it’s swatched wet. Look at the pretty khaki color :)

Eye Pencil in #8 Luminescent Gold

At first I was not impressed by the color of this eyeliner. But after trying it on my inner corner, I gave up and get this one. In my opinion, great eyeliner must be soft, pigmented, smudge proof, waterproof and last for more than 6 hours. This eyeliner is very soft and pigmented, the color shows up easily. It only need one swipe to show the gorgeous color it has. Sadly this is not smudge proof; I swiped this on my hand and I smudged it after 3 minutes and I can see that some colors are scattered.

Then I did a waterproof test on this eyeliner. This product scores very well on this. I took this picture on my sink after I did the smudge test and you can see that the color stays there, it does not smudge because of water.

On the picture below, I am using #8 Luminescent Gold on my inner corner.

I am not going to review the touche eclat this time as it is my mum’s so I could not use it for few times before writing a review.

Anyway I am going to show my FOTD on my grandma’s bday. I curled my hair on special occasions and thought I would love to share the picture with you.

Products used:

Base Makeup: Avene Sunblock, YSL Touche Eclat in shade #2, MAC pressed powder in NC20

If you like YSL Pure Chromatics, I have previously reviewed YSL Pure Chromatics in No 3 , that’s a gorgeous palette too :)

My favourite FOTD

Hello again everyone,

This look probably my favorite so far. Have been using this products and do this make up routine everyday. Yes I’m that boring haha. For the face I used Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in no. 5, since this foundation doesn’t have SPF make sure you apply sunblock or I always apply moisturizer with SPF. Then I applied Burberry Sheer Concealer in Soft Beige no. 2 for under the eyes to hide my dark circle. It has similar packaging with YSL touche eclat! After that set the foundation with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder in Ivory. For the eyebrow I used Chanel Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Brun Cendre no. 40. I’m happy with this eyebrow pencil, its soft and pigmented enough.

Now for the eyes, applied Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in #8 Champagne (reviewed here) as the base all over the eye lids. This is the ‘star’ of the look then used Bobbi Brown Sand Tortoiseshell Eye Palette applied Sandy Rose-metallic eye shadow which in the bottom tray far left half of the eyelids from middle to outer part then applied Black Chocolate eye shadow still form the same palette in the outer part of eyelids lastly blend it. It won’t be complete without eyeliner, my favorite eyeliner Kiss Me Heroine smooth liquid eyeliner. I used to dislike liquid eyeliner, but this one is goooood, will do review and comparison soon. For cheeks just applied Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks in EX01 Coral (reviewed here), my latest blush in my collection. What’s else? I used Ardell lashes in no. 110 since I went out for a nice dinner if not I will just use mascara. For the lips I forgot to apply before I took pictures, I think I used Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy. Perfect color to complete the look.

Apologies for some blurry pictures. Thanks for reading!
