Well, I did say I was going to kickstart the holiday mentions as soon as I can so, here they are!
Though unfortunately this mention is one where I don’t have a whole load of information about in terms of the products within but from what I can gather by what I have seen of it (online and from the products I have on hand), it is gold and it is gorgeous.
The collection only consists of a few key pieces but don’t let that fool you because these pieces alone are good enough to whip up a look that’s perfect for having your hair up in a bun, sipping on some wine in an elegant long evening gown or alternatively hitting the clubs in pure wild fun – your call.
Eitherways, YSL has you covered!
While I don’t have the star of the collection on hand here are some pictures as seen on chicprofile of the YSL Wild Avery Gold Palette.
Yes, it is leopard print errrthang and those who live for animal prints, this is for you!
I could be wrong but I recall someone mentioning that these aren’t leopard prints but panther prints. Though frankly I’m not huge enough a fan of prints to be able to tell one from the other – panthers have prints?? – so fanatics can advise me otherwise.
Bottom line, it’s almost like wild animalistic nature meets sophisticated chic girl, what more could you want, yes?
Aside from the Wild Avery Palette, which would make such a perfect companion for you jet-setters or for those would love to have all their makeup options in one sleek palette, lets have a look at the other 2 pieces from the collection – the Touche Eclat (which I have in 02) and Glossy Stain.
The Glossy Stain within this collection is 09 Rouge Laque which I believe is actually part of the permanent range.
What makes this so special, as with the Touche Eclat here, would be the packaging.
Unlike the usual Glossy Stains that feature a black lacquered bottom, the one launched with YSL’s Holiday Collection is gold all around – very grand and very pretty.
I’ll swatch and talk about this another time, look out for that!
Shifting the spotlight to another item that has received a good amount of mention through the course of this post, the Touche Eclat.
I was never a huge fan of animal prints but I must admit that this is probably one of the fanciest Limited Edition Touche Eclat packaging I have seen (in my time).
Something about the glamour of this – fusing gold and animal prints together – makes it really nice to own. Imagine popping this in your touch up bag or perking up your mornings while using this in your routine. Absolute luxury for such a practical product.
I haven’t given these items a whirl just yet (then again the Touche Eclat is a Touche Eclat right?) but if you have never gotten your hands on either of these or are thinking to gift a friend some of YSL’s signature or permanent pieces is a to-die-for packaging, this is the time!
The palette makes for a wonderful gift too, to yourself or someone who jets about and needs everyhing in one sleek and stylish compact. It almost looks like a chic leatherbound notebook, noone would have guessed.
I didn’t have a whole lot of information but I hope there are enough visuals and mentions in this post to give you an idea of what to expect from YSL come end October!
YSL’s Holiday 2014 Collection will likely launch end-October.
All items (packaging-wise) are Limited Edition.
Thanks for reading!
I felt incredibly tempted to just make this entry a pictorial post, spam pictures and no information but my rambling got the better of me. I know I could sum up a lot of what I say but where’s the fun in that? Yes? And if people come here to read my rambles (I presume…) then ramble, I shall!
