The strong colour combinations of the fall Rock & Baroque collection caught my eye. Unfortunately the nail polish duo's, which seem to be the focus of the collection, weren't in stock but I did pick up some of the other items.
The eyeshadow duo (£27) in #31 Midnight Blue-Solar Gold contains a sheer shimmery old gold and a matte dusky blue/purple, not a straight up blue as per the name. I know it looks blue in my photo but honestly I do think it leans more purple than blue in real life.
I've not been overly impressed with YSL shadows in the past, however although these are not the smoothest in texture, I really love the colour combination.
The Peche L'Eclat Collector Palette (£35) is marketed as "barely-there shades" however as soon as I swatched it I knew it would have enough pigment for me to use as a blusher. The combination of a very sheer pink and peach beige create a warm flush of healthy colour. The only issue I have with this is that the shimmer/micro glitter that I had thought was an over spray is still there after 4 days of use, I can't say if it will go all the way down but I'll update this post if it does disappear.
Swatches L-R: pink,peach/beige, both shades combined.
I also bought two of the volupte perles which I'll show you soon. I am still tempted by the nail duos but I've not tried YSL varnish before so wonder what the quality is like ?
