Out with black nails in with black lips?


Limited Edition

AS SEEN IN VOGUE (see below), this limited edition must-have item is available now.

A cosmetic jewel that turns lips into a spectacular fashion statement.

Mysterious, sensual, luminous… For fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, black is THE color. And as a make-up artist, lips are THE focus. YSL GLOSS PUR Black unites these two facets of his art in a superb Limited Edition.

From plum to ebony, it dresses lips in an infinite range of shades, depending on how it is applied – feather light or rich and bold. Transparent yet intense, it plays on the depths of black and the pure shine of a sparkle-free formula.

Besides being the must-have make up item for Fall 2008, Gloss Pur Black is a preview of a new formula which will launch in Spring 2009, in 6 radiant shades, full of pure color and high shine.

Big Brother UK hottie Stuart Pilkington launches YSL’s Touche Eclat For Men.


I had no clue who Stuart Pilkington was until I Googled him, and realized he’s pretty huge in the UK where he starred in Big Brother 9.  I found this hilarious montage someone created of him from BB9.  I’m a huge Big Brother fan, and from what I’ve heard, the UK edition is much more exciting!  If anyone knows how I can catch it over here in the states, let me know!

Anyway, this UK hottie helped YSL launch their new line, Touche Eclat For Men.  Erin and I have reviewed the women’s version in the past, go here for that review!

It is a make-up essential found in millions of handbags. But now Yves Saint Laurent is launching a version of its Touche Eclat eyeliner specifically for men.


Touche Eclat For Men is unfragranced and will ‘encourage men to use cosmetics as a skin enhancer, rather than to create a full make-up look’, the company claims.

David Walker-Smith, director of beauty at Selfridges, which will sell the product for $45 a pop, said: ‘Men have gone from stealing beauty products from their wives and girlfriends to stocking up on their own. They no longer consider them to decrease their male bravado.’

It follows this year’s launch of ‘guy-liner’ and ‘man-scara’ eye make-up for men by high street chain Superdrug and will add to a booming grooming market for men worth an estimated $14 million annually.





When I first used YSL Matt touch foundation I was a little worried about how dark it came out but once I started applying the foundation to my skin it blended perfectly. It has the best whipped texture you need just a tiny bit to cover your whole face. The foundation gave my skin a flawless finish and didn’t leave that made up feel I am totally in love with this product. It is a little spendy but you need just the tiniest bit so the tube should last for a long time.

Oil-Free Foundation

SPF 10

Matt Touch Foundation’s smoothing, silky-soft texture caresses the skin with a sublime and long-lasting radiant matt finish. The white water lily extract associated with anti-shine sebo-sponges purifies and controls excess oil, and the star radiance booster pigments conceal imperfections and illuminate the complexion.

The skin’s texture is refined, the skin is pure, neat and fresh. The complexion is beautifully radiant while remaining perfectly matt. With MATT TOUCH FOUNDATION, you can let your complexion enjoy the incredible sensation of a matt and long-lasting veil of even color.

The Smoky eye reinvented for Spring.


Makeup artist Wendy Rowe proved that going gray can be a good thing when they used soft gray shadow to create the perfect smoky eye for spring.  Rowe the makeup artist from the spring show for Burberry Prorsum swept a soft gray along the brow bones and the inner corners of the models’ eyes to give their eyes depth without being overwhelming. She skipped eyeliner and mascara to keep the effect “sculpted, but not too done”.

Gray eyeshadow flatters all skin tones pair it with matte skin and light pink lips for a fresh daytime look. To achieve this great new look yourself try Yves Saint Laurent Eye Color Touch Water-resistant Eye Shadow in #2 Steel Blue.
