YSL Spring 2015: Palette Ombres de Jour

How beautiful is this eyeshadow palette?! I spotted this gorgeous pink sequinned beauty just after Christmas and I desperately wanted it but I'd already spent my Christmas money so walked away from it. I then started seeing it appearing on a few blogs so that made me want it even more.

Last week after having my hair done and making a little detour through Boots on the way home I decided to just go for it. All YSL packaging is stunning but the pink sequins makes this extra special! This is the Palette Ombres de Jour for Spring 2015 so I guess knowing it's Limited Edition made me want it more too.

Although I probably could have bought this for the packaging alone, the eyeshadow shades inside are beautiful too. Phew! All of the shades have shimmer in them which I love. The soft brown and more bronzey brown are very wearable shades but I just love the additional colours which I wouldn't have thought  to wear with those browns. The top right shade is a gorgeous creamy white with hints of pink shimmer. The pink in the bottom right is absolutely dreamy, it's such a lovely shade! The black in the centre has more of a matte base but is packed with hot pink shimmer.

All of the shades are very smooth and whilst they aren't the most pigmented eyeshadows I've ever swatched, they still pack a punch of colour and I'm impressed with them. I haven't tried these on the eyes yet as I have a ton of other makeup to get through but I'm looking forward to trying a look with these colours.

This is probably the prettiest palette I own now and I can't stop staring at it! I forgot to mention there's a huge mirror inside, the whole size of the lid, so it's good for applications on the go too.

The palette costs £42 and you can get it from places like Feel Unique, Boots and Debenhams. This would make quite a nice Valentines Day present, so get hinting! ;)

Do you like the look of this palette?
Have you got your eye on any Spring collections?

  2. That looks beautiful!! The light brown is probably my favorite. Are the little brushes okay or the same crap most brushes are when they're inside palettes? xx

  3. Oh this is gorgeous, YSL always have the most gorgeous packaging! I actually really like the pink eye shadow, it's such a pretty colour! And I love how the black has pink glitter in it! :)
