YSL Rouge Pur Couture and YSL Pure Chromatics
As promised, here’s the 2 things that I bought from the YSL event that I attended last week! I bought the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in no. 17 and YSL Pure Chromatics in no. 7. As always, click on each picture to enlarge it 😀
The lipstick – YSL Rouge Pur Couture in no. 17 is a coral lipstick. You can apply this sheer almost like a balm or you can apply it as a lipstick. It has a satin finish, very moisturizing and has SPF 15. I’m not a big lipstick person myself, but I’d have to place this second on my favorite lip products (my no. 1 favorite lip product is Tarte Lipsurgence). This lipstick cost around Rp. 350,000 if I’m not wrong (about $35).
The eyeshadow – YSL Pure Chromatics in no. 7 is actually the Spring/Summer 2012 collection that was just recently released in Indonesia. There were several quads, but I was attracted to this quad the most, I think due to that beautiful gold and copper-red eyeshadows in the palette. This quad cost Rp. 600,000 (about $60) in Indonesia. The eyeshadows can be used wet and dry.
As you can see from the swatches below, the colours definitely are more intense when it’s wet (wet is on top, dry is at the bottom). The 2 light colors are way too light for my skin-tone if I use it dry, it’s a pretty highlighter colors nevertheless. The gold and copper-red colors look gorgeous dry or wet. If only they make these shadows in the singles/monos, I think I’d definitely buy it 😛
