YSL Releases their Fall Collection: Elegant, Mysterious, and Sensual

Those gray eyes are to die for, aren't they? And I am so glad to see that berry and wine hued cheeks and lips are on their way back. I've been bored with the lack of color this past season.

Let's start with the lips, because they really make this look pop. This is their Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Lipstick in Exquisite Plum. Rouge Volupte has been winning awards all over the place, including the 2009 CEW Insider's Choice Prestige Lip Beauty Award Winner, and the 2008 Allure Best of Beauty Editors’ Choice Award Winner, Best Bright Lipstick, Rouge Volupté Lipstick in Provocative Pink #10. They are releasing four new shades this season, but I am in love with the matte look of Exquisite Plum.

On the face is the Perfect Touch Radiant Brush Foundation as well as the ever-popular (and yet untried by me) Touche Éclat Radiant Touch. There are two limited edition products in this collection, Palette Y Collector Palette for the Complexion which is both a blush and a powder shaped in the iconic Y. It can be used as a highlighter by mixing both shades or just as a blush with only the darker shade used. On the cheeks is the Creme De Blush Cream Blush in Powdery Rose. This cream blush is light and instantly melts on the cheeks for a radiant, natural finish.

On to those eyes. The new YSL Ombres 5 Lumineres 5 Color Harmony for Eyes is just to die for. In the two new releases, the eyeliner color is in the stripe down the middle, and the four satin and matte finish colors are all color coordinated for subtle tone on tone looks. The palette used in this collection is #8 Midnight, shown to the left. Finishing off the look is the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in..wait for it...Sublime Grey. Yes, a gray mascara. I know. I'm dying over it too.

Finish up the entire look with La Laque Long Lasting Nail Lacquer in #39 Stormy Grey. True fall perfection.
