If you’re the kind of girl that likes to splash out on new makeup each season I have a feeling you’ll be excited about the Yves Saint Laurent Autumn Look collection. The YSL Beauty fall 2013 offering is not to be missed, mixing fantastic colour combinations with super-slick packaging that will take pride of place in your makeup bag. Inspired by city streets the collection includes lipstick, nail polish, blush, mascara and eye shadow palettes. The two palettes are my personal favourites, as they’re cleverly separated into Uptown and Downtown looks. Uptown featuring smokey shades inspired by champagne, marble, concrete and steel; whilst Downtown pairs neon green with electric blue, reflecting the city lights.
I’ve been wearing the elegant Uptown shadows with a sweep of Autumn Look Blush Radiance and lashings of Baby Doll mascara. The formulas in the fall 2013 collection are really impressive: the blusher has a half-matte/half satin finish and the eye shadows can be used wet or dry.
The black and gold packaging makes such a cool statement that I’ve also started storing the palette on my desk, so that I can look at it all day long. At this rate I might have to invest in the Downtown palette too. Especially as I love a bit of fuchsia pink!
