Yves Saint Laurent YSL Pure Chromatics for Spring 2011

I gotta say YSL sometimes doesn’t always capture my interest as many of their products are a bit too sheer for my tastes but YSL Pure Chromatics….whoa, these look special!

Check ’em!

British Beauty Blogger proclaims these shadows can be used wet or dry and the product is manufactured by “pouring” the pigment into the wells as opposed to pressing them. Once the shadow pigment dries down they rehydrate quickly and become creamy and metallic. Since they are made up of 50% water and 50% pigment you’re getting a very extreme shadow texture with a bold color payoff. Sounds like a most delicious shadow formula!

It’s been a while since YSL captured my interest but I think I’m foreseeing a haul in my future as that earthy palette is calling my name, heck alot of these colors are yelling at me to buy!

Whatcha think?


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Sadly I have always associated Brands like YSL, lancome with an image of oldness … I’ve never bought anything from these two brands , don’t have much attraction to me really!
