Rate YSL’s spectacular “Pop Illusion” Couture Collector Eye Palette (& win it)

Looking to add a little spring “pop” into your beauty look? I’ve saved one of my all-time favourite YSL Couture Collector palettes to give away on my website. This 5-colour eyeshadow palette (from the spring 2018 collection) contains a trio of blue hues from soft lilac to azure to deep indigo – three modern ways to wear blue. Add in a gold highlighting shade and a soft pearl pink for an accent and you have a wardrobe of shades that will take you through spring and into summer beautifully.

What’s interesting about this palette is the colours were carefully chosen to contrast, clash or complement according to how they are applied. The solar gold shade can be used as a gentle wash of colour for a soft spring look. Or it can be used as pop of acid brightness.

I’m so appreciative that the YSL design team tests all these shades on a wide variety of skin tones to make sure they work for all. The colours are tweaked and perfected until they flatter almost every skin tone.

This photo is Mr. Saint Laurent who designed the Dior 1958 collection following the sudden death of Christian.  It’s models wearing his “Trapeze” collection.

The Giveaway: I gave away YSL’s Couture Palette Collector in “Pop Illusion” to one lucky reader. To enter, I asked readers to tell me in a blog post comment below how they’d rate this palette on a scale of 1 to 10. Heidi C told us and we drew her name from all entries. Congrats Heidi!

    @uwannagoviral I give it a 10 on the collectability scale! Really cool packaging and fun colors to look at. Might wear the indigo as an accent liner, would have to play with the other colors to make them work for me. I’m more of a natural /neutral girl

    I must give it a 9.9 because I have not used it yet 🙂 . This is 80’s awesomeness in a palette and I wore all these colours and may have since and will proudly rock them if I am blessed with this. Ahhh it is awesome

    I am blue eyed and have worn every shade of blue along with shadow, liner and crease since 1975. Always a hint of pink or yellow below my brow bone. Always brown mascara or brown extentions. Still wear YSL Rive Gauche.

    Personally I would rate this palette a 10 out of 10. I just love this combination of bold a flattering colours. I love the engenuity of how the colors can be used in different ways – very much like my personal wardrobe style these days! Love the vintage photos of YSL and his French bulldog too!❤????????????

    Definitely 9 out of 10. The only reason it isn’t a 10 for me, is because I wish there was an intense silver to go with those gorgeous blues. I would definitely wear every shade in this palette, stunning.
