The golden case wrapped in green leather with the YSL logo is so beautiful that it seems a shame to touch the five shimmery richly-pigmented eye shadows inside.
If you like to make a statement with your eye make-up these colours will certainly make you stand out in a crowd. This is very Yves Saint Laurent from the 1970s albeit with a contemporary twist.
Burgundy and olive green might not be a combination that you would automatically pair together however, the beauty of this palette is that you can experiment, blend shades together and make them work. There is also a lovely pinky-taupe in the collection that looks great as a highlighter with these hues or you can wear it on its own.
According to YSL it is time to inject some fun into make-up. For the adventurous, this season may be time to forget the rule of either a strong lip or eye and do both.
