YSL “Northern Lights” Holiday 2012 Collection

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Inspired by the aurora borealis, this collection is full of color and shimmer.  I am especially liking that blue lip gloss, for some reason.  I have been dying to see what the blue/green lip glosses that are out actually look like on your lips.  Anybody?

Things I Don’t Do: The YSL “Facebook” Palette

OK, OK, so it isn’t really called that, rather it is the ‘Devoted To Fans #1’  palette, which actually sounds a even more awkward.

I’ve spoken before about beauty and commercialism, and even though I understand the palette will only be available to YSL Facebook fans, (thus the color scheme) it still seems a bit crass.  Of all the things in the world for a beauty product to be inspired by, Facebook would be the last thing on my list.

I do like the colors, and I’m sure my dislike of the product is completely irrational.  Perhaps my toddler’s brand of logic has been rubbing off on me.

It’s just that I like my luxury brands to at least attempt to maintain the illusion of classiness, and this one doesn’t quite cut it.

Pretty, Pretty, Puuuuurrrrrple

I don’t know if it’s appropriate for a woman of my age to love purple lipstick/lip gloss, but I do.

Mauve is my go-to shade of lipstick, and when I’m feelin’ funky, I’ll reach for a grape-ier look.

Glinda’s lizard mind says, “Mmmmm, me want….”
