YSL Holiday Collection

The YSL Holiday collection bows next month, and as they usually are, it's a beauty.

Called the Love Collection the signature YSL heart features prominently.

The highlight for me is this Lip Locket Pallette. Heart shaped and adorned on the outside with red Swarovski crystals, this is the gift just about any woman would be happy to see in her stocking come Christmas.

The red shade is a true deep red, and the other a sheer pink/gold overgloss. This red actually looks good one me which is a surprise, when paied with the gloss. At last a red I can wear. It'ssuper creamy and blends well.

Neat feature is the brush which looks like a stopper at the top. It goes in that top piece when you aren't in need of it.

It is a heavy piece, and well made.

The Complexion pallete highlights 2 powder shades for face. Using the tilted YSL heart , the pink shade is a medium ,shimmer pink for the cheeks. The background shade is pale beige. Together it's a nice combo, and the Silver Compact has red heart image on the outside and comes in a 2 sectioned velvet pouch. One each for compact and puff.

Next is a multi- use palette containing evrything you need in one place almost. Lipstick and glosses, eyeshadows, blush( again in a heart shape).

Rounding out the collection are 2 coordinating lipsticks and fast drying nail polishes in a red or gold shade. Both are lovely,and adorned with silver caps/cases instead of the familar YSL gold, and a 4 color eye compact , all of whose shades are beautys. The eye shades go on darker than they appear in the compact and are silky, lasting and full of shimmer.

All of these are great holiday gifts , and I like the silver packaging. I love the gold as well, both are beautiful. It's hard to go wrong here regardless of the color. Call this gift giving made easy.
