A bronze and golden look for the summer. Makes sense, right? Sheer and golden is what stands out from YSL’s Summer Collection for 2012. It’s elements? The Terre Saharienne Collector luminous blush and face powder, Pure Chromatics Eye Shadow, Golden Gloss, Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof and Dessin Du Regard Waterproof Eye Pencil.
The stand-out is the Terre Saharienne Collector, with a python print designed, inspired by the Yves Saint Laurent Couture accessories. When applied, makes your complexion look radiant and glowing because of its pigments that catch the light, thanks to the pure crystalline properties in its formula. It’s long lasting, heat and humidity resistant, blurs imperfections and has SPF 12 UV shield Mica particles, coated with amino acids. Sounds like a marvelous product to me! #gottahave It comes in two shades: Harmonie Tanned and Harmonie Sunkissed.
Then we have the Pure Chromatics Eye Shadows, No. 7 Feminine, No. 8 Earthy and No. 9 Smoky. Feminine is a set of four eye shadows in two shimmery plum tones, and gold and white highlighters. Earthy is a set of browns and beiges, while Smoky has greys, brown and metallic beige. YSL formulated them using their newest technology that uses no solvents, instead, water saturated with pigments and mother of pearls. This makes the eye-shadows 50% more concentrated than any other. They can also be applied wed, for a metallic finish.

The Golden Glosses are sophisticated and shimmery, with luxurious 24-carat gold flakes. It feels super soft because it includes nourishing oils that protect and hydrate. And did I mention they come in a delicious mango scent? They are available in four tones: Golden Shelle, Golden Pebble, Golden Pearl and Golden Sand. Is it clear that this collection wants you to shine like gold?

Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Make-up Yves Saint Laurent was inspired by the colorful sands of Harbor Island in the Bahamas and of Mexican beaches. The collection calls for smoky and intense eyes, with luminous features and shimmery lips. A very lavish look.
