Yves Saint Laurent Rock & Baroque Fall 2010

Excessive, flamboyant and passionate is how YSL describes their fall makeup collection - if you ever thought of them as a stuffy brand, this should lay that little issue to rest, this collection is colourful, stunning and a little edgy!
Starting off with a new line of lipsticks - Rouge Volupté Perle - $38 - with beautiful shine and shimmer due to "rose gold" micro-pearls.  In five regular colours:  No 101 - Beige Caress, No 102 - Coral Sun, No 103 - Sparkling Pink, No 104 - Stellar Pink, No 105 - Insolent Beige and one limited edition colour:  No 106 - Mesmerizing Purple (which Christelle just loves).  If you like your lipstick to be soft and creamy, this is a line you'll want to take a look at!  And of course the packaging is YSL luxe!

Manucure Couture Colour Nail Polish Duo - $32 - a new twist as well as the classic french manicure in four limited edition duos:  No 1 - Belle de Jour - violet and turquoise, No 2 - Belle de Nuit - indigo and gold, No 3 - Rive Gauche - orange and fuchsia, No 4 - Y-Cone - classic fresh manicure.
And what's a collection without a pretty palette!?  Péché No 1: L'Eclat - Collector Powder for the Complexion - $78 - beige and blush pink and absolutely adorable - if you could bring yourself to use it, it would illuminate your face and make you radiant, but using it is obviously crazy talk!  I'm feeling my Christmas list coming on...
Touche Eclat Collector - $50 - No 8 - Radiat Silk - limited edition packaging for this season only, it has been screenprinted with matte gold decor inspired by an original pattern featured in YSL leather goods and ready-to-wear collections.  Same great formula of course that highlights and hides depending on where you use it.
And don't worry, not everything is limited edition, they have also introduced some new basic shades:
Ombres Duo Lumieres - $52 - No 29 - Purple Amethyst / Tawny Brown
Ombre Solo - $32 - No 13 - Aquamarine and No 14 - Satin Silver
Mascara Singulier - $36 - No 5 - Deep Indigo
Ombres Duo Lumieres - $52 - No 31 - Midnight Blue / Solar Gold
Blush Variation - $54 - No 19 - Venetian Rose - I love this blush, you can use the colours singularly or swirl them together for a healthy all-over flush!
