MOTD: Playing with New Makeup

Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette 4

Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette 4

Hi guys! I just did a MOTD post yesterday but, I thought, why not do two in a row? I started cleaning off my vanity today and decided to play around with some products I had out waiting to be tested. The end result turned out great so I thought I’d share it with you! I won a YSL Giveaway a few months ago but for some reason I haven’t spend as much time testing out the products as I would have liked to. My makeup routine has been so minimal on the weekends the last few months so that is likely why. During the week when I wear my normal face, I don’t have time to play around so I stick to what I know. Anyways, let’s check out the look and then I’ll talk a bit about the products I tried out!

The YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer is a product from my YSL goodies that I have tried a few times. I find it does add some radiance to my normally completely matte face. What I kind about it is that I don’t find that I get any oilier looking throughout the day when I use it. Used alone there is some visible shimmer/sparkly pieces but is isn’t too concentrated so I don’t find it to be too much.

The YSL Couture Palette #4 was quite nice to work with. The shadows were pigmented and easy to blend and apply. I do feel like a transition shade is missing so it does not have every shade for a complete eye look. Whenever that is the case I step in with my handy Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Shadow Palette to complete the job! It really isn’t a deal breaker for me, I just wouldn’t take it on it’s own travelling.

Finally, the last product that I was trying out today was the Becca Crystal Glow Gloss in Opal x Jade that I recently picked up. I’m not normally a gloss girl but I have to say, the colour shift really intrigued me. It looked beautiful for layering over lipstick and I was right! It’s hard to see in the photo but there is a teal colour shift to it and it is stunning. It also doesn’t feel sticky on the lips which I really like. The potential stickiness is what keeps me away from glosses. Anyways, these are just some initial thoughts, I will do a more thorough review once I’ve used it more.

What do you have on your face today? Let me know in the comments down below!

xoxo,

  1. Ooh I like this soft look on you. 🙂 The YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer reminds me of the Guerlain one that everyone swears by!
    The Becca Crystal Glow Gloss in Opal x Jade looks so pretty on you – I know you prefer matte lips but I think the gloss makes your lips look so pretty!

      Aw thanks! I surprisingly didn’t hate this gloss. But, it also wasn’t windy when I wore it, wind + gloss = nooo way for me, haha! But I would consider purchasing more of these for those low wind or hair up kind of days! 🙂

  2. […] the lips and it does not feel sticky at all. I posted a look using it recently which you can find here! This revelation has opened me up to trying some other glosses so… stay tuned! Perhaps there […]
