NOTE: REPOSTING THIS AS BLOGGER WENT DOWN AND IT'S NOT SHOWING UP AS A POST. IT'S A GOOD THING IT WAS SAVED AS A DRAFT.
YSL is a brand that I was recently introduced to having been gifted with a blush. I happened to see this beautiful YSL 5 Color Harmony #5 eyeshadow palette on a blog sale and decided to try it out. The blue colors are all very gorgeous and the eyeshadows are very pigmented and apply smoothly.
My only concern with using these blues is an EOTD turning out looking like it's something from the 60's. My dear blogger friend BV of Beauty Verdict termed it "Endoraesque" because of the bad and scary blue eyeshadow look that Endora from Bewitched sported.
I primed my eyelids using UD Primer Potion in Greed. From the YSL palette, I used the blue in the upper right hand corner from inner lid to just past middle of eyelid and up to the crease line. The deeper blue in the lower left hand corner is applied from mid lid to outer corner of lid and blended upward above the crease line and inward towards the inner corner of the eye to blend out any harsh lines. It was at this point that I freaked and my brain screamed "Endoraesque"! To mute the bright blue of the shadow, I blended the charcoal blue/gray color in the upper left hand corner over the entire eyelid where the blue shadows had been applied. This layering blended into a beautiful sapphire blue color, which I totally love! The dark navy color was applied to the outer corners of my eyelids and just slightly on the outer corners of my lower lid. Lined my eyes with K-Palette Real Lasting eyeliner.
I really liked the end result of this EOTD. The shadows blend easily together. I didn't experience any fallout while applying it. I'm really glad that I decided to try this high end brand eyeshadow and even happier that I was able to do so at a very reasonable price.
