Being a complete make-up junkie that I am, I love and own many drugstore products but I had still not sampled and tried more luxurious brands,
partially due to the fact that I need to save up so much because I now have two, yes! Two wishlist's worth of high end make-up and skincare products that I really want to buy and own.
Recently I was contacted by Direct Cosmetics* and I was allowed to pick an item to review that was of my choice (aww thanks guys!) and when I saw this YSL make-up palette, it was love at first sight!
Direct Cosmetics is a website where you can purchase discounted top name skin care and make-up brands, some of the brands include: Clinique, Elizabeth Arden, and of course Yves Saint Laurent. It also does not stop there! They also stock hair and tanning products too!
Yves Saint Laurent Make-Up Palette is the perfect selection of products for the lady who loves Pink! Encased within a beautiful pink compact this item includes:1 x Ombre Solo no.4 Powder Eye Shadow Violet, 3 x Ombres 5 Lumieres Powder Eye Shadows in Taupe, Parme and Rose, 2 x Rouges a Levres Solid Lip Colours and 1 x Blush Variation no 14 Powder Blusher.
This palette is beyond stunning! A beautiful fuchsia pink palette that screams quality and class. The Gold YSL logo completes the packaging and the size is perfect to fit into your handbag or even your pocket!
When you open it up, you are greeted with some stunning shades of pinks and purples, even though that is the colour theme of this particular palette, all of the colours are wearable which is great!
There are four eyeshadows, two lip colours and one highlighter/blusher. You can choose to create day/night looks or just incorporate one/two of the make-up pans into your routine.
The eyeshadows range from cool pastels to a stunning dark violet shade. All eyeshadows contain shimmer apart from the taupe shade, each colour has a lovely colour pay off and I can imagine how intense the colour and longevity will be once I use an eye primer with it.
The two lip colours are any girl's dream! The barbie pink and the medium toned pink are so creamy in texture and it lasts long too! Since I tend to wear lighter shades, I can wear these as lip tints rather than a full on lip colour but if you love your dark pink shades then this truly is perfect for you!
Lastly the lovely peach toned blusher which is beautifully laced with subtle gold shimmer, makes it a good choice for summer since it gives a fantastic glow to the face. I see myself wearing this everyday because it makes a good staple and I having been loving warmer shades of blushers recently too.
All in all, a must-have palette that really ticks all of the boxes for me, the make-up is presented well with a huge mirror and decent quality mini brushes for easy on the go application. I guess that's one luxury product crossed off on my wishlist.
Have you ever tried anything from Direct Cosmetics, it's definitely worth a browse!
