How beautiful is this eyeshadow palette?! I spotted this gorgeous pink sequinned beauty just after Christmas and I desperately wanted it but I'd already spent my Christmas money so walked away from it. I then started seeing it appearing on a few blogs so that made me want it even more.
Last week after having my hair done and making a little detour through Boots on the way home I decided to just go for it. All YSL packaging is stunning but the pink sequins makes this extra special! This is the Palette Ombres de Jour for Spring 2015 so I guess knowing it's Limited Edition made me want it more too.
Although I probably could have bought this for the packaging alone, the eyeshadow shades inside are beautiful too. Phew! All of the shades have shimmer in them which I love. The soft brown and more bronzey brown are very wearable shades but I just love the additional colours which I wouldn't have thought to wear with those browns. The top right shade is a gorgeous creamy white with hints of pink shimmer. The pink in the bottom right is absolutely dreamy, it's such a lovely shade! The black in the centre has more of a matte base but is packed with hot pink shimmer.
All of the shades are very smooth and whilst they aren't the most pigmented eyeshadows I've ever swatched, they still pack a punch of colour and I'm impressed with them. I haven't tried these on the eyes yet as I have a ton of other makeup to get through but I'm looking forward to trying a look with these colours.
This is probably the prettiest palette I own now and I can't stop staring at it! I forgot to mention there's a huge mirror inside, the whole size of the lid, so it's good for applications on the go too.
The palette costs £42 and you can get it from places like Feel Unique, Boots and Debenhams. This would make quite a nice Valentines Day present, so get hinting! ;)
