A creative lifestyle blog.

Saturday 17 August 2013



It has been a few months since my last beauty post on the blog, nothing intentional, simply a case of nothing exciting me in the beauty world as of late. That was until I set my eyes on YSL's latest beauty offerings for autumn/winter 2013 in the form of this City Drive Classy Palette in Uptown. Lets just address the elephant in the room here and take a moment to appreciate the beauty that is the packaging of this palette! Gold, black and a contemporary graffiti design is so up my street I couldn't help but have a peak at what treasures would be inside such luxurious packaging. I was not disappointed with what came within, the colour selection in this Uptown palette is a lovely mix of neutrals to make the perfect day to night look - hello perfect! True to its name the colours reflect the city with champagne, marble, concrete and steel. All 4 colours blend well together to create a lovely soft smokey eye but can also be used wet if you want to intensify the look. The YSL palette is currently on sale at Debenhams for £25.20 (linked above) or at YSL counters for the usual price of £42.00. 

I'm a big voluminous lashes type of girl and after doing some research this YSL Baby Doll mascara was quickly added this to the top of my wish list. It was pretty much a given that I would throw this in my basket at some point so I thought what a better time than the release of the palette above. I am happy to report this mascara has worked its way up the ranks when it comes to giving you that wide eyed, long, full lash mascara effect. The brush is narrow enough to easily reach your inner lashes but still coat and magnify your normal lashes. This mascara is undeniably pricey retailing at whopping £24.40 but if you fancy treating yourself and you are in need of a new mascara I couldn't recommend this more.
