I was initially really excited about the YSL collection for Spring 2010, but saw it in person a few days ago and wasn’t all that thrilled. I only came home with 1 new item: Golden Gloss #19 in Golden Petal, a pigmented soft rose-pink with gold shimmer. I had #20 Golden Macadamia from the release at Neimans a few months ago but never got around to photographing it, so here are both the glosses.
#19 Golden Petal is the pink gloss and is surprisingly pigmented for a golden gloss. Those who have tried golden glosses before know many of the light pinks are sheer with the gold shimmer dominating the gloss. The new one for spring has a strongly pigmented pink base with gold shimmer that isn’t overpowering which is nice for a change.
#20 Golden Macadamia is the beigey-gold. It doesn’t go on as beigey-nude as I expected because of a pinkish iridescent sheen to the base. It gives a lovely wearable nude lip. It’s a bit on the sheerer side for me.
I wanted to love the new Rouge Voluptes and Gloss Voluptes but nothing really caught my eye. I plan on trying out the new highlighter and blush in person in the next upcoming week. The counter I went to was swamped so I didn’t get a chance to get a closer look at these.
