If you’ve ever visiting the Jardin Majorelle in Morocco, then this collection will completely resonate. Although the garden was not designed by Yves Saint Laurent (it was designed by French artist, Jacques Majorelle), it was bought by Yves Saint Laurent in 1980, and it’s where his ashes are sprinkled – the gardens were a beloved place and constant source of inspiration.
I’ve been, and although in reality, you have to shuffle through it with throngs of other tourists, rather than it being a peaceful, tranquil place, it is rather beautiful and intensely vibrant with radiant blue, yellow and brick shades immersed amongst the green. If you then imagine the heat of the day in this place amongst all the colour, it’s quite an experience.
I don’t have the full collection here, but head to Chicprofile HERE to see the promo images. Of the colours, the one that I’ve really fallen for is Opulente Cannelle, shown at the top of the page. It’s described as a coral shade but it’s not really; it’s more toffee-rose shade that is absolutely stunning. I don’t think I’d get a lot of wear from Ambre Gingembre although I see its point in the collection. I’ll have more pictures at a later date, and Spicy doesn’t launch until 26th February, but I think this is one of the best collections from YSL for a very long time.

That YSL Spicy Polish in Opulant Cannelle looks beautiful on your nails
I absolutely love YSL polishes and one of my faves is Mauve Popeline from Spring 2010. It is an absolute beauty. I have fallen for Opulente Canelle, too. Seems like the kind of shade I’d wear, but I know there are many others, including an outstanding top coat with a gold leaf effect that I’ll try to get ahold of as soon as possible. Bourjois also has a gold leaf effect polish which is quite beautiful, but the only problem I see with it is that i tends to peel off and is a bit tough to remove.
