Yves Saint Laurent The Black Collection

YSL Autumn Collection for 2011 mixes classic pieces with more eclectic yet elegant colours. 
I think the pictures will speak for themselves:

Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils

This is my favourite item of the collection! I use cream eyeliner regularly and the colour is a nice change to a boring black, plus intense enough to give depth to the eyes.
 The swatch above is no. 4 Sea Black, a rich metallic blue... isn't it gorgeous?
To be honest, I've fallen in love with every single pot available -  they come in 6 shades: Black, Grey, Bronze, Blue, Burgundy, Green.

Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Another classic revisited for the new season!
The colour I got is no. 5 Cherry Black, which you can't really tell from the picture (sorry) but it's a deep purplish black. It's perfect to complement my green eyes, adding a bit of sparkle to the look.
But if your eyes are another colour - not to worry - the mascara also comes in the same 6 version as the eyeliner.
I really like the brush: it has got a slight twist which helps grab also the smallest lashes.

Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils

Confession: I've never used a liquid eyeliner before!!
As mentioned before, my tool of choice is the cream version; mainly because I always thought the tip of these pens looks too big and secondly I was worried it would dry out faster.
I'm a converted user now!! This pen is so easy to use and very precise, plus I'm liking the wet, bright look you can achive with liquid liner, instead of the matte finish of a cream one.

La Laque no. 127

It's a really good quality polish: it dries super fast, good coverage and it's a proper blue! Many others I've seen on the high street just end up looking black.
I wanna try the bronze so bad but it seems to be sold out everywhere!! :(



Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation no. 6
YSL Touche Eclat no. 1
Bourjois Blush in Lilas D'Or

YSL Eyeliner Effet Faux Cils no. 4
YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils no. 5
Rimmel Colour Mousse 8hr no. 8

Mac Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Full Speed

  2. I recommend the eye liner in the pot. Go to a counter and swatch them, great colour. The green is on my wish list. :)

  3. I haven't tried the brown but I read a not so favourable review about it so I am kind of not bothered about it anymore! I really love that blue cream eyeliner though, it looks absolutely beautiful! I am also lusting after their eye shadow palette from this collection the AW collection! It's so beautiful!
