Yves Saint Laurent have always been a brand that I adore not only due its amazing designs in their couture but also their amazingly sleek, gorgeous and attention to detail packaging that they have for their makeup line. I've been very hesitant to show the swatches for this palette since they are not available on the web site anymore. The new palette available is a rocker chic type of quad which u can find it here.
Anyway, the palette which I'm swatching today is the Yves Saint Laurent Ombres Quadrilumieres 4 Colour Harmony For Eyes in 8BB. Though the color in this palette is really lovely and all, they do come with an extrently pricy tag of $54. So unless any of the following happens, I'm pretty sure I will never be able to afford their palettes with my student pockets.
- I suddenly got rich and have plenty of money to spare on makeup
- YSL palettes went on crazy sale
And in this case, I got this palette due to reason #2.
One would think that at such crazy price tag, the eye shadows would be of extremely high quality. But it is very much the opposite case for this palette. Not all colors are as pigmented as I wished and there are some fall outs with the shadows as well. I find that the dark brown swatched on the far right is tougher to work with while the white highlight is the most pigmented of all. My second favorite color after the white highlight would be the pink shadow. It is really the perfect lid color for my yellow undertone skin color!
Though the quality of the eyeshadow is not as good as I wish, I still love the color combination and the packaging. I also think this is perfect size for any travels since the palette itself is quite compact and do come with a handy mirror. So, if any of the palettes go on a crazy sale again, I would still purchase it.
Have u tried any palettes from YSL? If you had, what do u think about them?
