YSL Summer 2018 Swatches
But this is the best part!
Couture Palette Collector Urban Escape
So this is a skater inspired palette with blue-grey shades to reflect the pavement, bolder shades to suggest carved stone statues, and silver for the light that bounces off city windows.
I’ll be honest, this palette is not for me but it is beautiful nonetheless.
The formulation is lovely and the shadows are silky, smooth and easy to work with.
Rouge Volupte Shine No 76 Red in the Darkness
This is a beautiful deep burgundy shade in one of my favourite lipstick formulations and packaging!
Volupte Tint-in-Balm No 14 Underground Pink
I adore these tinted lip balms from YSL. Not least because they have a lips shape that goes through the core of the bullet, but because they are so easy to apply and feel and smell amazing. Underground Pink is super pretty.
Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones No 4 Golden Bliss
This formula is always so good and I was delighted to discover that Golden Bliss is a highlight shade and an incredible one at that! It has a weightless texture, sheer coverage and blends effortlessly into the skin.
La Laque Couture No 102 Gris Graffiti & No 103 Red Anarchy
The grey shade is my favourite, because, after orange, pale grey is my nail obsession. Gris Graffiti is a real beauty, as is the hot red shade. I think this is a perfect mini nail edit for summer.
