Sizzle This Summer With YSL Summer 2013 Collection: Reviews, Photos, Swatches

I always expect YSL to bring the drama and this summer collection is no different. These items are available now at Holt Renfrew, selected The Bay, Murale, and Sephora stores. I already featured the incredible Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stain in Nº 31 Corail Alla Prima here, and now it’s time to take a look at some of the sizzling hot products from the collection. Tssssssss.

My new favourite matte bronzer is Terre Saharienne in N° 20 – Terre Ochre ($60). It is the most incredibly soft and silky bronzer I’ve ever used. This shade has strong yellow undertones, so beware pale pink-undertoned beauties. On my medium, warm-toned skin it is perfection! A quick application with a fluffy bronzer brush gives me a beautiful tanned face. Love.

ERMAHGERD. This lipstick is gorgeous, guys! Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre in N° 114 – Rose de Saba ($39) is a rose mauve laced with a golden shimmer. It is so pretty and so flattering. It reminds me a lot of another favourite, MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam V,worn here. Like VG V, I know this one will also look beautiful on a variety of skin tones.

The star product and only limited edition item in the collection is the Marrakesh Sunset Eye Collector Palette ($72). It contains 5 shimmery eyeshadows: bronze, peach, champagne, blue-violet and golden yellow. When I swatched these on my arm, most of the colours applied on the sheer side. The bronze and peach were the smoothest, but the rest were too dry and didn’t swatch well. I’d have to see how they perform on the eyes, but I am hoping this is a don’t-be-fooled-by-the-arm-swatch palette. Crossing my fingers.

Stay tuned for a full makeup look using these products. I’m thinking a blue-violet smokey eye like the collection promo here. What do you think of these products? Do you plan to pick up anything from this collection?

    The lipstick does look beautiful! And I don’t think I’ve ever met a matte bronzer I didn’t like ;)

      Hahhahaa I like how you think Catherine. :)

    Oh waw, this looks pretty! The palette looks most appealing to me since the bronzer wouldn’t suit me at all.. But I probably won’t splurge on it. Curious to see your look with this! :)

      Coming up next week. :D

    Ooh I love it! The palette shades are just so beautiful. Love the lipstick as well, MAC V is a long time favorite too, so dry universal. I can’t wait to see the looks, hoping the shadow performs better on the eyes. xx

    Rose de Saba is a CLASSIC colour! Cool-toned but great on Asian complexions.

    Geez, it all looks GORGEOUS. That shadow palette looks super wearable and super sexy!! I just can’t get enough of the YSL packaging, seriously.

    The glossy stain looks gorgeous!

  • Wendy

    Do you think that the YSL bronzer that you use (no. 20) will look good on the light-medium with cool undertone ?

    PS: I just found you beauty blog recently and absolutely fall in love with it .

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca/ Arianne

      Hi Wendy! I can’t tell for sure. The YSL bronzer in 20 is definitely on the warm side, but there are other Terre Saharienne shades that might work for you better.

      Thanks so much for the kind words! xo
