Sneak Peek: YSL Spring Look 2012

The best thing about being in the middle of winter is the launch of many Spring collections that are bursting with hope (of warm days ahead) and colour.  Here’s a look at some items from YSL Spring Look 2012.

Bright sheer colours make up this punchy spring collection, which is inspired by candy!  Who doesn’t like candy?


YSL Rouge Volupté Perle in No 114 – Sparkling Fuchsia and No 115 – Shimmering Coral

These are two of four limited edition Rouge Volupté Perle shades ($38).  The other are No 113 – Iridescent Burgundy and No 116 – Milky Pink.  They are glossy sheer lipsticks with a very slippery texture of a lip balm.  Both these shades are laced with gold pearl.  See more swatches at Best Things In Beauty.


YSL Vinyl Candy Palette

The gorgeous, limited edition Vinyl Candy Palette ($68) was inspired by sugar-coated rock candies.  The pigmentation of these eyeshadows is sheer-to-medium without a base (see swatches below), but easily buildable if opaque is what you’re looking for.  I had a bit of problem with the blackcurrant shade to apply evenly, but the rest of the shadows are very smooth.


YSL Voile de Blush in No 2 – Coral Veil

YSL Voile de Blush ($40) is a new, limited edition formula for the collection.  It is a sheer, water-based gel blush that adds a hint of colour and subtle sheen to the cheeks.  It is very lightly tinted that it barely shows up on my tan skin, so your mileage will vary depending on your skintone.  The blush is also available in No 1 – Carmine Veil and No 3 – Pink Veil.


YSL Rouge Volupté Perle in No 114 – Sparkling Fuchsia and No 115 – Shimmering Coral / YSL Voile de Blush in No 2 – Coral Veil Swatches


YSL Vinyl Candy Palette Swatches

I adore the the eye palette and the lipsticks in this collection.  I can’t wait to show you a look using the products.  What do you think?  Anything you want to take home?

YSL Spring Look 2012 is available in Canada as of February in Holt Renfrew and selected Bay and Murale stores.  The Vinyl Candy Palette is also available at selected Sephora boutiques.

    Ooh, those lipsticks are purrrty. But that blush?! Y U no show up on Arianne’s skin tone?!

      LOLOL I was thinking the same thing! It looks so pretty it’s such a bummer it looks like nothing when swatched :(

      • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

        It is such a sheer tint! I’m curious how well it’ll show up on really pale skin. It has the potential to be pretty, y’know? Anyways, I’m sending this one to Tracy after I do a look. I hope she can tell us. :)

      The lippies are amaaaazing. I want the Iridescent Burgundy as well.

    I am really loving the lipstick shades. The very faint golden shimmers would probably look stunning with a little tan and under the sun…like say on a beach? ;)

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Perfect with a tan! :)

    Oh my goodness so very pretty! Loving the super feminine colours coming out for spring. LOVE. Is there shimmer in that blush?

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      There is shimmer in the blush, but very small amount. Sad you can’t see it on me though! :(
