The Light At The End Of The Palette


Yves Saint Laurent's Limited Edition, Bleus Lumiere, was my first introduced to the restyled 5 Colour Couture Palettes, and I'm working my way to add them all to my collection.

Bleus Lumiere 5 Colour Couture Palette. 

 I was over the moon infatuated with the harmonious pairing of the Summery blues and corals in Bleus Lumiere...nothing but love!


Bleus Lumiere 5 Colour Couture Palette Swatches. 

I was going to pass on 12 Bleu Lumiere and 13 Bleu Egee Dessin du Regard Waterproof Eye Pencils, but once I swatched them, and realized their beauty, I had to buy them. These long-lasting, creamy, vivid liners define the eyes, and make great eye shadow bases.

From left to right: 12 Bleu Lumiere, 13 Bleu Egee, 01 Fuchsia Desinvolte, 04 Ornage Fougueux, 12 Moca Garconne.

Another new product that I tried was YSL's Baby Doll Kiss & Blush. There were several colors I wanted to pickup, but I refrained, and settled for 01 Fuchsia Desinvolte, 04 Ornage Fougueux, and 12 Moca Garconne for Summer. Always a sucker for a multi-tasking product, I love the airy, mousse-like formula, that performs wonderfully on, both, lips and cheeks. I will definitely be purchasing more, if not all. Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
