So this is the stand out palette from YSL’s autumn beauty range; very pretty and shimmer shot with a lime that’s rather unexpected.
You can use these colours wet or dry – wet for more intensity, which I think the darker shades will need for more impact, but these are swatched dry. I love the glimmering blue shade but not quite sure how wearable the lime is.. I need to try it on my eyes to see whether it’s a goer or not. The presentation is immaculate – the outer casing of the palette has larger-than-life pink YSL on the top – but at £42, I’m not totally blown away.
The Radiance Blush is also very pretty – but I can’t help feeling I’ve seen this before in a million permutations and it’s also quite shimmery to you’d have to want to sparkle a bit, which I don’t.
I think the big seller in this collection is going to be YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Prune Avenue (no. 54).. the densest raisin shade I’ve ever come across; gorgeously vampy and succulent. It’s already for sale at Selfridges for £25 HERE along with the rest of the autumn 2013 range.

I need that lipstick haha! and that palette is gorgeous! i love the black you know me such a goth at heart hahahah
Those are pretty shades!! yes applying it wet makes the color more intensified! great swatches 🙂
THE LIPSTICK! oh wow
When looking at the palette I thought of Nars New Wave, and when looking at the blush I thought of Givenchy Prisme…xx
I loved the blush but when I put it on it was barely visible, just a bit of shimmer on my cheeks. I like the other palette in this collection much better but at £42 each I won’t be buying one.
Loves the blush and eyeshadows. So super duper pretty! =D xx.
