Inspired by Marrakesh, with hues of coral, violet, fuschia and green, YSL Summer is looking pretty hot!

This is the YSL Collector Palette with gold etching on the lid. I have no idea what it is or what it represents. It’s just kind of, er, squiggles. But, inside, it’s a whole other thing.

This is a beautiful mix of shades that can create so many different looks.

I think the payoff could be better to be honest.. the shades, once on the skin aren’t as vibrant as they look in the palette but I’m sold on the violet and the khaki shade. It’s £42.

On its own, I’m not crazy about this shade – I feel like it’s a colour we’ve seen before, BUT

Pared with a raisin brown lip from YSL Pur Couture in Brun Sultan, a bronzed complexion and little else, it’s a completely editorial and edgy look.

I’m always a coral fan, and this gloss stain in Corail Alla Prima is perfection.

I can’t deny I am loving the no-shimmer bronzer trend so this looks great in a matte format and three shades.

Whew… no more glitter face.
