I’m finally back to my blogging routine now after a few weeks of extensive Lunar New Year’s celebrating and working my butt off at work. I hope you’ve all had a blissful few
years weeks and I’m now coming back at ya with another product review.
This is going to be an interesting one, with the good, the bad and the ugly! Let’s dive in!
OVERVIEWThe most unique and elegant Parisienne palette comes with 10 “Couture” colors: 5 eye shadows, 4 lipsticks, 1 blush, mini Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Black and 3 professional brushes. Its compact size is perfect for women on the move; allows infinite possibilities for creating a “Parisian Look”. The pouch can also be used alone as a chic fashion accessory.
This set contains:
- 1 x Ombres Solo Powder Eye Shadow Shade #2 Brun Cachemire 1g
- 1 x Ombres Solo Powder Eye Shadow Shade #3 Bleu De Perse 1g
- 1 x Ombres Lumieres Powder Eye Shadow #2 Beige Rose 2g
- 1 x Ombres Lumieres Powder Eye Shadow #3 Taupe Nacre 1g
- 1 x Ombres Lumieres Powder Eye Shadow #11 Violet Aubergine 1g
- 3 x Rouge A Levres Solid Lip Colors 0.67g
- 1 x Gloss Solid Lip Color 0.67g
- 1 x Blush Radiance Powder Blusher Shade #4 Mate 8g
- 1 x Mini Mascara Voulme Effet Cils Shocking Gratuit Free Black Mascara Shade #1 Noir 2ml
- 3 x Professional Brush
Packaging: Elegantly beautiful. The palette is absolutely impeccably designed. Chic and sturdy with a high quality full mirror to fit! It also comes in a nice pouch which also has room for the mascara and makeup brushes too! No complaints about the packaging here! 🙂
The Good: Blush Radiance Powder Blusher Shade #4 Mate & the supplied Professional brushes. the one item I love the most in this whole palette would be the Blush Radiance Powder Blusher Shade #4 Mate. Not only do I love the way the YSL logo is printed on it but the baby pink is so beautiful! The blush isn’t all that pigmented but all the better, it makes it easier for me to control how much blush I apply and it also builds up very well too! The makeup brushes are also pretty good quality.
The Bad: Rouge A Levres Solid Lip Colours. The lip colours, although they look absolutely amazing in the palette, they’re actually not all that pigmented. It takes at lease 4+ applications before you’ll get any colour pay off (except for the darkest shade which may still require at least 2 applications). The shimmery gloss adds more shimmer than gloss to the look and is relatively a nice top up to any matte lipsticks that you want to take up a notch, but then even this shade is only average at best.
The Ugly: Ombres Solo Powder Eye Shadows and the Ombres Lumieres Powder Eye Shadows. All the eyeshadows in this palette are awfully patchy and not at all pigmented. Whilst they look stunning in the palette, these colours do not translate on the eyelids . Additionally the fall out is absolutely appalling! The only shade that’s at all okay would be the Ombres Lumieres Powder Eye Shadow that can help you brighten up the inner corners of the eyes in a subtle manner.
Yet to try: Mini Mascara Voulme Effet Cils Shocking Gratuit Free Black. I’ve got too many mascaras still to work though at the moment so I’ve got to save this little one for next time! 😉
Price: Reasonable. This retails for $84.00 SG at Changi Airport, which is a relatively reasonable price for a high end product like YSL.
Overall, this palette is nice to the eyes but not at all useful when it comes to achieving the flawless makeup look you’re after. Whilst the small compact palette makes it a dream to travel with, however it’ll must likely be a useless accompanying item.
SCORE: 4/10 – (i.e Not worth your time).
I hope you enjoyed the review!
Until next time,
