YSL Spring 2012-My favorites!

I was completely sucked in by the ‘candy’ collection-YSL 2012.  I watched a video from YT’er PEI makeupartist and loved her finished look!  So I indulged-but only in my favorites!

My favorites from YSL Spring 2012


YSL Ombres 5 Lumieres Palette


YSL Vinyl Candy 4 Color Harmony for Eyes (If I was forced to pick a favorite, this would be it)

YSL Rouge Volupte Perle Lipstick in 116 (Milky Pink)


Voile De Blush Gel Blush in 1 Voile Carmin


Also picked up a Touche Eclat, the ‘miracle’ of all undereye concealers/highlighters.  Been having some good times with that!

And then there is the serum-YSL Forever Youth Liberator. I haven’t opened this yet but am looking forward to it.  From the website:

“The star of the Forever Youth Liberator range, the serum contains the highest concentration of GlycanActif™ to stimulate regeneration deep within the skin and to boost youth-promoting functions.”

I love these products-they apply beautifully and color payoff is amazing!

My hang ups:


-Gel blush is a tad sheer (but it’s supposed to be)

-lipstick reminds me of my (younger) life in the ’80s-keep those lips moisturized if you want to wear them!

Check these out if you can-they are pricey but worth a splurge if you feel like spoiling yourself!

    Milky Pink is love!!! 🙂 Great picks! So when will we see a look using those? 😉 I am loving the Bright candy colors trend this Spring!

      @Macbella that milky pink is pretty spectacular. As far as the look goes, I am considering a makeup class to get my techniques down before I attempt any ‘on camera’ stuff!!!

    JEALOUS!! I surprisingly don’t own anything YSL.

    • meredith

      @Alicia we need to correct that. They have some lovely items!

    I loved the display at the YSL counter, but I’m not sure I could make any of these work for me. They are so pretty, though!

      @Larie you would be surprised. I thought for sure the yellow and green would be off limits for me too but I am liking them. I use the yellow to pop some of my other shadows I use. Good stuff.

    I love Touché Éclat, it’s the secret to my youthful glow and to never looking tired. It’s expensive but really, really worth it.

      @Leesh-I really like it too. I am tempted to carry it with me!
