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!

    10 because of the mix of colors…………… YES I would wear it and love it……….. BUT if my mother saw it she would talk me out of it. At 90 her colors are always a mix of blues that is all she buys
