If you have a beauty lover in your life who truly appreciates luxury products, there are three stand out items from the Yves Saint Laurent 2010 Holiday Collection that are must haves!
The first is Yves Saint Laurent OMBRES DUOLUMIÈRESEye Shadow Duo 21 Anise Green / Intense Plum. The texture of the shadow is so silky, creamy and pigmented, it's a dream to apply, and blend. I think this green/purple combination is so new and fresh. The green can be applied lightly for just a touch of light blue/green on the eyes, or layered for a much more intense pastel green.
This shade really works well with the plum shade. The purple actually has a touch or burgundy in it, so it really looks great on darker skin tones in particular, and makes a great modern smoky eye.
With both shades, the finish is a translucent, shimmery one, so it's perfect to work with more bold night time looks, or with a lighter hand for day time to break out of the brown/beige/gray shadow habit!
The second beautiful product is the Golden Gloss in Golden Chocolate (shown above, center). The scent is divine - like a vanilla/cherry hybrid, and this is one for shimmery, sexy lips (not a long-wearing formula however!).
The gloss is a semi-sheer brown with a touch of red and is filled with actual gold shimmer particles which shine and sparkle from every angle. It really provides the statement - making final touch to a makeup look.
The YSL Nail Lacquer in Pink Gold (pictured above and in their beauty ad above on the model's hands) is divine! It's true to it's name - golden with a beautiful, creamy touch of soft rose pink. It's perfect for a "softer" metallic nail look. The consistency of the polish is creamy and smooth, with great wear. Any beauty lover will love the legendary YSL bottle packaging - so luxe and worth the splurge! - RLB
