Think you could pull off the pastel eye featured in the Yves Saint Laurent Spring Look 2009?
The model’s wearing a delicious trio of pink, purple and mint shadows, each stacked one on top of the other like Neopolitan Ice Cream! It think it’s gorgeous, but I’m not sure I could pull it off.
Pastels are tough for me, but they sure look perty…
I really love the conservative colors in this release, too.
I’ve just started testing a few of them, starting with the Eyeshadow Duo in Oatmeal/Petroleum Blue ($41).
Not having had much time to use them yet, it looks like Oatmeal (a matte cool beige) and Petroleum Blue (a matte slate blue) apply with high pigmentation, and something tells me they’ll look great together, with Oatmeal as a wash over the entire lid and Petroleum as a liner.
What do you think?
And then there’s the new Gloss Pur lipglosses in Pure Fuchsia and Pure Nude (each $29).
I bet Pure Nude could be fun layered on top of a hot pink lipstick like MAC Girl About Town, but I think I’m leaning toward Pure Fuschia.
Both glosses have a faint, interesting scent that smells of licorice and watermelon. I know — strange combo, but I like it.
I hope they’re long lasting, too! I’ll report my findings a little later.

YSL costs a pretty penny, so here’s to hoping for good wear time and pigmentation.
Calm down, Lover!
I finally heard C. Bale’s f-bomb-filled tirade yesterday, and all I have to say is WHOA. Two words, C. Bale: anger management.
Shoot! He broke my heart… I’m gonna need another virtual crush to take away the pain.
Maybe Detective Stabler, aka Law & Order: SVU’s Christopher Meloni, is up to the task.
Funny, but I just realized that all of the celebrities I get crushes on look kinda like El Hub. Hmmm…
How ya handling hump day, ladies? I hope things are going your way!
