YSL Couture 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in 7. Parisienne

Oh Yves Saint Laurent, you have done it again! The lure of the pretty golden packaging has struck again with the release of a selection of new eyeshadow palettes, all containing five unique and flattering colours inspired by a different fashion collection from the House of Yves Saint Laurent. With eleven new palettes in an array of fun and subtle shades, they are the perfect one-stop product for an instant, glamorous smokey eye – comprising of a base colour, highlight colour and then three complimentary shades to colour and contour the eye. All new Couture palettes are available online and on counters (£39.50 each).

I have been testing out Palette No.7 Parisienne* which is one of my favourite selection of shades from the whole collection. The texture of these shadows is silky and long-wearing, nicely pigmented with a pearly finish without being too sparkly. The new formula of these YSL palettes has been developed to be crease-proof and easy to blend whilst feeling lightweight yet stable on the lids. Parisienne is a lovely selection of hues including a pearly white highlight shade, a golden-taupe base colour and then three plummy-pink shadows which look so pretty blended into the crease or brush lightly along the lower lash line. The intensity of these shadows are not ultra pigmented but do offer a medium colour-payoff and do feel incredibly soft and comfortable on application. I am a big fan of shimmery eyes so I love the luxe finish of these eyeshadows and love the fact you have an array of shades to highlight and sculpt as well as taking your look easily from day to night.

Have you tried any of these new Couture palettes from YSL?
