Radiant Touches with YSL Spring 2008 Collection

When it’s YSL, its all about elegance. YSL celebrates its 30 yrs of beautifying women all over the globe and this collection symbolizes the YSL style.
For the event, one of my favorite artists Val Garland conjured up a collection epitomizing a modern woman with a touch of retro elegance.

(Since it’s launched a little late in India my review is getting late too)

I have always liked YSL and worshipped their unusual style of coming up with unique products. The cosmetics are not only wonderful on the people on whom I use them but also leave us all mesmerized with the finish that we get. This collection carries on the legend. This creation celebrates love and flowers with a fresh and joyous spirit.

YSL for their Spring 2008 have launched a fantastic bouquet of cosmetics to choose from. They have: -

- Palette Pop: -

a palette inspired by one of the greeting cards Yves sent to his closest friends. It’s an assortment of colors and a confectionary of textures. The universal colors like brown, pinky beige and orange not only sculpt the face but add uniqueness to the overall ensemble.

- Pop stick blush: -

Haven’t I talked about Shiseido’s accentuating stick in my previous posts. This is its newer version. This airy light formulation glides on the skin and feels cool. Please do not misunderstand by looking at the texture. It can be only judged if you feel it. Its delicious, melting texture takes you into a whirl of freshness and colour. The exquisitely intermingled shades give the cheeks the kiss of springtime radiance and subtly shape the face. It’s a tantalizing menu of shimmering nacres as transparent and luminous as a crystal prism that can be used subtly to highlight the face with iridescent reflections. Plus a hydrogel to protect against drying and a poppy extract with softening properties.

Each pairing features two shades entwined in a spiral designed to ensure a completely natural-looking, radiant finish.

N° 1 Vanilla / Chocolate with an amber hue.

N° 2 Strawberry / Raspberry with dewy pink touch.

N° 3 Peach / Blackcurrant for a fruity coral tone .

- Eye Touch: -

I was dying to have something just like their legendary Touché Éclat concealer and my prayers were answered. Here I have Eye Touch developed on the similar lines of the legend for a subtle glamorous fodder for the eyes. The cult brush-pen instantly adorns the eyes with silky fresh, water-resistant, exceptionally smooth creamy shadow. It produces an intensely radiant finish on the eyelids with a dual smoothing effect: an optical effect with bright pearl complex and a mechanical effect with a bio-polymer composed of sweet almond proteins that are transformed into an imperceptible film. To last hours and hours and effortlessly stand up to tears and laughter, it contains volatile components that rapidly fix the colour. The brush applicator goes on easy on the eyes and its something that can find it way in the cozy corner of your bag ( yet remain in your heart….am I getting too poetic).
The array of colors include: -

N° 1 Golden Coral, a natural, glowing skin tone with bronzy mother-of-pearl highlights.

N° 2 Steel Blue, a steel blue grey illuminated with gold and white mother particles.

N° 3 Golden Jade, a pale green shot with gold.

N° 4 Glazed Brown, a perfectly matte taupe to give eyes deep intensity.

Then they have their usual stuff like

Rouge Pure Shine: 2 new shades
Golden Gloss: 2 new shades
Rouge Pure: 2 new shades
Mascara Volume Infini Curl: 1 new shade
Ombre Duo Lumière: 2 new variations

I loved the Duo Lumiere shadows especially plumy purple and shimmery pink beige which go really well on all skin types. Though they aren’t the highlights of the collection yet they demand attention.

They also have Nail Touch for nicely manicured nails.

Fantastic aren’t they??…Hope you enjoy the collection.In Mumbai it is exclusively available at Shoppers Stop in Bandra, Dynamix Mall at Juhu JVPD and supposedly at Phoenix Mills in Lower Parel.
