YSL's Summer Collection Is Amazing

I am absolutely in love with the bold colors of this summer's YSL collection. Inspired by Africa, the eyeshadow palette called Tresor d'Afrique is my favorite of the bunch. It includes 5 shades: ivory, to be used as a base; turquoise, plum, and navy blue for definition, and toffee to brighten the arch area and bring warmth and contrast to the eyes.

Not to neglect the lashes, there is a limited edition Everlong Waterproof Lengthening Mascara called "Ever Peacock Blue," which, I am quite sure, is just gorgeous. What is unique about this formula, however, is that it contains eyelash conditioner - similar to what you can buy these days to boost the length and overall growth of your lashes.

Also in this collection are two beautiful sheer lipstick shade, a Tresor d'Afrique Sun Powder (also limited edition), which is a bronzer, and the Touche Eclat Radiant Touch in "light peach." Makeup mavens everywhere seem to rave about the Touche Eclat, and after watching the videos on YSL's site, I have to say I'm intrigued. She looks flawless!

What do you think? Are you as anxious to get your hands on this gorgeous collection as I am?

The colors are really pretty, but my god they've retouched this poor model until she looks like a mannequin.
