Inspired by the Mondrian dress created by Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent back in 1965, YSL Beaute presents COUTURE PALETTE.

Currently in Indonesia, there are 7 color palettes to choose. And thanks to YSL Beaute Indonesia (hi mbak Venny), I was given #7 (Parisienne) to try. A Parisienne at heart, I love the soft & romantic colors from taupe, soft pink and plum on the palette. Look at the gorgeous palette above, the top left shade is the base shade (but still, I recommend to use eye primer). The top right shade is the highlight for the brow bones. And the darkest one of all in the middle palette is great as liner. The two bottom shades are great for blending and mixing with each other. 

I really recommend this palette for beginners. As I remembered, my first encounter with eyeshadow palette was not a walk in the park. I didn’t know which color to put where, and how to blend them together. But now, thanks to Couture Palette, they do come with a step by step instruction inside the famous golden packaging. Really, really easy to use, just as they named this palette a ready to wear color palette. 

As any other YSL eyeshadows, they’re really intense and long wearing (even without an eye primer). The bonus from this specific palette: we can create three signature look with ease (BTW, I tried the signature look number 2 for my photo above). It’s a mix between matte & satin shades with a little shimmer for the highlight. Yet, they’re getting better after a while. Don’t be afraid to add up the colors, as they’re very soft and less dramatic than I thought they’ll be. Just remember to always blend, blend, blend to make your look more effortless.
