I hope you are all well! My post today is about YSL's Summer 2012 collection. It comprises of the most beautiful pieces I have seen in any Summer collection in quite a while... I adore YSL, everything about the brand screams luxury. There is something about that beautiful gold packaging that attracts my inner magpie.
Between attraction and the temptation to give …
The images alone for this campaign are stunning. The two products I have from the collection are, the Golden Shimmering Lipgloss in shade 51 which is 'Golden Coquillage' and the Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder with an SPF of 12 in shade 3 'Bronzed'.
This is the Terre Saharienne Collector bronzing powder. This... is my pick of the collection. I am totally in love with this, so much so that I'll let you in on an embarassing fact. Since I have had this in my possesion, I've not had the heart to put it into my makeup storage, it sits on a shelf in my room, in its little pouch. Every so often when I pass it, I'll pick it up and just have a liitle look. That to me, is the essence of what luxury makeup should be, it is something that makes you feel special, something that gives your heart a little lift, and this does that for me.
The powder itself is beautiful, it gives an instant healthy glow, this is thanks to the incorporation of the new 'sun radiance' pigments. These special pigments capture the light and difuse it in a golden reflection. The finish I am left with is an amazing golden radiance, you can almost see the teeny tiny irredecent pigments shimmering ever so slightly throughout the bronzer. Although it is the darkest of the three shades its not overwhelming on my pale skin, and it is complimented beautifully when worn with the Touche Eclat foundation which you can read a full review on here.
This is the Golden Shimmering Lipgoss, and it's a beauty... This amazing gloss is worth its weight in gold! It's a high shine gloss with sparkling 24ct gold flecks. It gives a glamorous almost mirror like effect. It contains a complex of nourishing oils to protect and hydrate. It's also very subtley scented with a hint of mango. The colour itself is a dusky nude pink with the most stunning flecks of shimmer but it's not too much. It's an incredible gloss.
So that's it for now ladies!
I hope you enjoyed.
