He's a lovely boy, is MrLippie. After his recent trip to Aberdeen, he brought me home this little box, which I couldn't wait to rip open. And what was inside?
A lovely pink pleather wallet containing four eyeshadows, a blusher and two lip colours:
Oh, it's so pretty. Not all the shades are named, but the eyeshadows are (from l-r) Violet, Taupe, Parme, and Rose. I have no idea what shades the lipsticks are, or the blusher. Here are the swatches:
These are incredibly hard shadows, and proved extremely hard to swatch. They're not nearly as deeply pigmented as the Stila shadows I showed you yesterday, and I got so fed up trying to get them to show up on my skin that I couldn't even be bothered to swatch the lipsticks. It is possible, of course, that they will swatch better, or even wear better, over a primer, but I'm not entirely convinced.
Ultimate verdict, oh-so-pretty but ... could try harder, YSL.
The Fine Print: Present. Yes, I am looking a gift horse in the mouth, I'm afraid. Here's hoping MrL never buys me a pony.
