YSL Spring 2012 makeup collection is all about our favourite candies, pastels and girly shades.
Here is what Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Yves Saint Laurent Make-up, says about it himself:
“The gleam of an infinite profusion of dazzling fruit jellies, translucent raspberry and wild strawberry, mandarin orange, melon, mango and persimmon bring a gorgeous flush to the Yves Saint Laurent woman’s face. Her smile is as bright as shining sugared drops and syrups: shocking cherry, tangerine, grape and pomegranate, crystallized rose petals, mint and chocolate.”
The star product of the collection is Vinyl Candy Palette, £39/ €55
It was inspired by the box of candies. You get a beautiful pink compact with golden YSl logo with four shades inside:
2 pearly eye shadows: luminous raspberry and lilac subtly infused with pearly pigments.
2 satiny eye shadows: blackcurrant and rose petals play up the magic of chiaroscuro.
Lloyd Simmond’s tip: “There are various ways to modulate the intensity of the color: with the brush, to diffuse a vaporous, smoky halo or with the foam applicator tip, to create a lustrous hue, or to mute the iridescent effect”.
