With two palettes to choose from, the interplay of highly pigmented textures from satin to shimmer, metallic to matte with glitters, brings unexpected harmonies and a never-ending combination of impactful looks. Play with it; collect it; and take it out for the evening. You never know where it will take you.
A palette for Paris
The home of YSL Beauté, the City of Light has an indisputable impact on all who pass through its shimmering streets. To celebrate Paris, ten shades of metallic silvers, coppery bronzes, satiny roses, are juxtaposed with bold pop-shades of yellow, matte purple and opaque black. The silver, copper shades and the yellow on the left of the palette glimmer boldly like the Eiffel Tower, sparkling silver or lighted yellow at night, and gleaming bright in the day with the iron structure.
The variation of the four shades of pink, from a beige pink to a darker pink, on the right of the palette take its inspiration from the colour that we can see on the pierre de taille of Haussmann buildings during the ‘Golden Hour’ in Paris. The purple in the centre of the palette comes directly from Tom Pecheux’s very first Fall Look makeup collection, Yconic Purple, associated with an unapologetically intense black. As bold as you dare. Limitless possibilities.
The magic of Marrakech
Marrakech is central to the YSL Beauté heritage; a lesson in how to be endlessly inspired by a city rich in life, light and a lurid spectrum of dazzling colour harmonies. Reflecting this unique combination of intensity and heat, the left side of the palette is reminiscent of the gardens of Majorelle, a world of sky blues and verdant turquoise. The right side of the palette showcases the warmth of spice markets imbued in shots of amber, orange and dusky rose, like a sunset over the rooftops. In the center, the dark grey and white are included to highlight and intensify your look. Versatile, the shades and varying textures can be used in an infinite number of combinations to create sophisticated drama or the merest hint of colour. Mixing up metallic with satin, glittery matte with shimmer; it’s bright, extreme, for women who love colour.
The Couture Colour Clutch’s exceptional packaging is cool to grab and go; for the girl who wants her eyeshadows 24/7. The chevron leather-effect quilted casing, with an iconic Cassandre in gold, is ultra-desirable and collectible. Dusky lilac. Black line. A shimmer of gold.
