Following a weekend where we got a taste of Summer and a glimmer of sunshine high in the sky, what better time to inject a little golden sunshine into your makeup collection with the release of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté’s new limited edition collection. Rock Lace is completely gorgeous and had me swooning the moment I spied that stunning packing – delicate lace tulle studded with black polka dots, a rock interpretation of the fishnet lace. The collection pays homage to radiant femininity, half dressed, half naked giving us the perfect balance of allure and elegance, soft yet equally seductive.
Firstly there is the iconic Touche Éclat highlighter pen* (£25) which I am sure you are all very well acquainted with as an absolute beauty icon, continually being reinvented and repackaged. The limited edition Rock Lace edition is available in three shades; No.1 Rose Lumiere, No.2 Ivoire Lumiere and No.3 Peche Lumiere and gives the skin an awakening radiance with a few simple clicks of the pen. It is one of those products that sits prettily in between a highlighter and a concealer – it doesn’t cover or conceal but adds an inner glow and illumination to the skin. It magics away dark areas and is my secret weapon when I want to fake 8 hours of beauty sleep!
The Rock Lace Couture Palette Collector* (£42.50) is pretty special and contains five couture eyeshadows that work in perfect pink-peachy-bronze harmony together. This rosy palette is the ultimate accessory for the eyes this Summer and can be used easily for a soft, semi-nude look or revved up for a smouldering, seductive effect. It is such an elegant palette and a real joy to use. The shadows are super fine, soft and easy to blend and apply and you have everything at your fingertips to highlight and define your eyes. I have a feeling this will be my go to eyeshadow palette over the Summer months, partly because of the stunning shimmery shades and partly because it makes a beautiful addition to whip out of your makeup bag!
