Today I’m heading out to San Francisco to see my old co-op student we had in the summer of 2012. Remember stylish Patrick, my fro-yo and swing-dancing buddy? He’s on a work term here, and I’m so excited to browse the big city with him! I’ll definitely report back on Monday on the sights of the city.
The spring collections just keep popping up like fresh flowers blooming on an April morning. How’s that for the cheesiest opening line, ever? Totally not me, but I thought it was hilarious when I thought of it — and just had to start my post with it.
Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2014 Collection has a ton of great picks out. Look at the fresh corals and pinks they’ve released back in January when I was busy packing up our lives to move across the continent to beautiful California.
My nails look weird long, I need to remember to keep them short. Nevertheless here is a fantastic cool toned red in the colour Rouge Pablo. Kind of fitting, since I used to paint “replicas” of Pablo Picasso’s paintings in the 90’s and early 2000’s. I should show them to you sometime. I used two coats for this polish and it wore well, like any other polish would. As you’d expect..
Rose Scabiosa is a more traditional spring colour, in this mauve-purple toned pink. Not a pink I’d usually go for, but it’s sorta nice — depending on your skin tone. I’m not sure I liked it on my pale skin, but maybe once I get a bit of sun on myself I’d like it better.
Yves Saint Laurent Pivoine Crush Ombrés 5 Lumières Eye Palette. Perhaps I’ll get the guts to do some sort of eye look with this palette and show you the colours and how they look on the eye. Next up, as always I love to save the best for last: lip colours! Love!The packaging on YSL products are the most luxe I ever did see. I think they’re the epitome of beauty product packaging, they do such a wonderful job. Definitely A++ in my eyes.
Not the biggest fan of this Gloss Volupté in Iridescent, it’s definitely too plumy of a colour and wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing it with my pale skin and brunette hair. I could see blondes, or darker skinned women wearing this.
The pink is SO easy to wear, and I love the buttery consistency on my lips. It’s a wow-ing lipstick, but you can totally pull it off for an every day look. The coral on the other hand, I’ll reserve for spring and summer when I have more colour to my face.
What do you think of the YSL spring collection? Anything peek your interest?
