Switch off the lights and let the night take over with the stronger, bolder, more intense new version of the decadent YSL BLACK OPIUM EAU DE PARFUM INTENSE fragrance.

Let me start with the fact that YSL BLACK OPIUM is one of my top fragrances. It’s got everything I look for in a fragrance. Something sexy, something sultry and something absolutely indulgent.

The Street AND I + How To Video on the YSL Spring 2017 Makeup Collection

Inspired by the streets and music; from downtown LA to the streets of Paris, YSL’s new makeup collection for Spring 2017 is all about the bright city lights. A stand out makeup collection, designed to bring out your inner urban artist. While certainly bold, this collection is incredibly wearable! To show you just how wearable it is, I’ve loaded a video up on my Youtube channel where I’m talking you through a full colour look that you can create for day or night. All the colour for this look has been created with only these two products; the limited edition The Street and I eyeshadow palette and the genius Kiss & Blush Duo Stick.

An Explosion of Stars

An Explosion of Stars

Ladies prepare to feast your eyes on the beautiful, new YSL Beauté Holiday Collection. It’s called “Sparkle Clash” and it’s a true celebration in a palette – an explosion of stars and such an insanely beautiful makeup collection that will make the perfect holiday gift! “The idea behind this exclusive holiday look is to totally re-think that old-fashioned way of painstakingly applying layers of cosmetics, just because it’s that time of the year again. I wanted to put the fun back into glamour, and make everything easy to apply, so that even the makeup feels like a party. Isn’t that what the season is all about?” ~ Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Makeup YSL Beauté When I saw the Sparkle Clash Edition Complete Make-Up Palette, I was literally starstruck! It’s probably the most beautiful packaging I have ever seen. When I opened the inside to reveal the beauty of this palette I squealed a little more as every colour in the palette is all me! There’s a quad of beautiful, buttery and very wearable eyeshadows, including; a metallic rose, a beautiful bronze, a champagne gold and my favourite, a punchy plum.

It’s not that I dont want “stuff”, I do, I just don’t want random stuff that serves no purpose in my life, know what I mean?
