Prepare to swoon! Two of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté most recognisable cosmetic icons have been presented in a new collectors edition, adorned with a blanket of glistening stars, to mark the 25th anniversary of YSL Touche Éclat. And how beautiful do they look? I cannot believe that this golden wand that I have had in my makeup bag since I was at school (not the same one I hasten to add) is celebrating its 25th birthday!
I am sure I don’t need to dwell on the power of this pen and that recognisable ‘click click’. Somewhere in between a highlighter and concealer, it delivers a swipe of radiant light and colour that enhances features as well as disguising dark circles. The original, No.1, is suitable for all skin tones but YSL also do a lighter shade (ivory) and a warmer shade (peach) to suit fairer and darker skin tones too.
Not wanting to feel left out, their luxurious Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara has also been given a transformation with the timeless rock spirit that sits at the heart of YSL Beauté. The classic golden cylinder has been studded with black stars that makes this item ridiculously desirable. The mascara is pretty great too – it gives my lashes extra volume, lovely length and an intense black finish. I always seem to have a Faux Cils on the go but I think I might just keep this one back…for display purposes you see!
This Star Edition Collectors collection is limited edition and is one to snap up if you love collecting these covetable items from YSL!
