Yves Saint Laurent is fast becoming one of my top five favorite makeup brands, continuously releasing innovative cosmetics encased in gorgeous gold packaging. So it's no surprise that I'm seriously eying YSL's latest over-the-top makeup offerings: two Moroccan-themed palettes, one for face and one for eyes.
Yves Saint Laurent Mosaic Powder Palette ($57, at right) is a bronzing palette with four shades. It contains SPF 10 and a touch of sparkle for light illumination. The bronze and pink colors are universally flattering, and the formula helps keep skin moist. The coolest part is that the pattern stays intact until it runs out. (Only the powers at YSL hold the secret to this technology!)
To read about the eye palette,
Yves Saint Laurent Mosaic Eye Palette ($57) was inspired by a popular Moroccan tile pattern. It includes four rich, sophisticated shades that are also velvety soft, including Bleu Majorelle, Turquoise, Deep Brown, and White with golden iridescence. They can each be worn alone, in duos, or together to create bright summer eye. The palette comes with a double-ended foam applicator and a brown suede-like pouch.
