Officially, this is the YSL Chinese New Year Palette (it’s the year of the sheep, by the way, that falls on 19th February) but I’m sure it’s no accident that it has a heart design – a great double up as a Valentine gift, too. Red symbolizes good luck (you’ve got to admit it would be rather good fortune if one of these came your way!) in Chinese culture – more so if it’s accompanied by gold.

Inside, it’s the usual format, in a selection of muted shades for a nude toned smoky eye.

Even though we’re swamped with nude palettes, I like this selection – they’re quite cool nudes which is more unusual, and I absolutely love the limited edition design. YSL are always forward thinking with their limited edition Couture Palettes – does anyone remember the Twitter inspired palette they did? I remember being absolutely desperate for it because it was ahead of its time in embracing social media.

Anyway, the YSL Chinese New Year Palette is £41.15 at World Duty Free for the month of February – or as long as stocks last. I’m not sure if it’s available outside of WDF – I’ve done a quick search and it certainly hasn’t launched on-line.

NB: See.. BBB commenters are the most knowledgeable in the world! If you read the comment thread, you’ll see that someone has spotted that this is in fact Saharienne (no.4) with a fancy lid. Nice work xx
