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.

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?
