While most brands bring out the beauty in the packaging, Yves Saint Laurent keeps it simple, sweet and classy, looking blingy and awesome without going over the top or being too underrepresented. The YSL fall 2015 Rock, Edgy and Young makeup collection is really all that, giving us a look into awesome ‘80s playfulness with a harder, more youthful edge.
While the Yves Saint Laurent brand had always been known for its incredible fashion sense, of late it seems to have changed its strategy. That is quite normal on most fronts, following with the trends, but it has taken to a trashier outlook as opposed to its classy chic we used to love. A billion dollar company itself, the fashion house established in 1961 has come a long way but it appears to be floundering, with some news outlets even wondering about its survival chances over the next few years. It is sad to see such a thing happen to a great giant in the fashion industry, but we can rejoice in the fact that while many of its latest garment designs are not quite what we had in mind to wear out for a date, the makeup sets still come in very handy. The packaging looks gorgeous, as is expected from such a prestigious brand, while the product itself is expected to be of the highest quality. They have even added some extremely fun pieces to the collection in order to create a complete package for the woman looking to dress up for the day or night.
Let’s see what the newest YSL fall 2015 makeup collection includes!
YSL Beauty Metal Palette (Limited Edition)
It features a new eyeshadow palette that offers 5 different hues, available in a metallic white gold casing that is lovingly dressed up in studs that are tasteful and very much fitting to the label. It is a collector’s palette really, and one we cannot wait to get our hands on. The colors included are jewel gold, red burgundy, dark plum, chocolate brown and pearly white.
These are the cutest pieces we’ve seen till now, with pretty little lips embossed onto the actual lipstick itself, in a lovely little tube to be carried about with you. The shades range from intense to general.
YSL Gloss Volupte (Limited Edition)
YSL Volupte Lipstick (Limited Edition)
YSL Mono High Impact Color Eyeshadow
These shadows come in very rich coloring with extra pigmentation, available in blue, electric blue and green
YSL Brow Mascara and Couture Kajal
YSL Black Opium Eau de Toilette
The Eau de Perfum from a few months past certainly got some lovely reviews so it is expected that the lighter version of the addictive scent will have a similar effect itself.
YSL Sequin Nail Jewels (Limited Edition)
There are 18 sheets of nail foil and a nail file included in with this package of awesome art for your nails, a trend, which is very much in at the moment. Why not spruce up your digits a bit with some awesome alternatives to getting a manicure?
