Purple is a major theme in Yves Saint Laurent’s Autumn 2018 makeup collection, which features stunning essentials in dazzling boxes and tubes. The Yconic Purple line includes new products created by global beauty director Tom Pecheux and longstanding Yves Saint Laurent favourites in a range of new shades, offering modern looks that are more daring and feminine than ever.

The keystone of the collection is the limited-edition Couture Palette, which comprises five shades of eyeshadow and two brushes. Flirty purple, a signature colour from the Yves Saint Laurent archives, takes pride of place in the palette, which also offers sophisticated nude, midnight blue, earthy bronze and pristine white shades.

The Couture Blush is a powder available in two shades – Nude Blouse pink and Corail Rive Gauche peach. A new essential, the Couture Highlighter in a new Gold Pearl shade can be used to add a little glow with its high-shine finish.

Another major innovation in the Yves Saint Laurent collection, Couture Chalks will likely win over many beauty addicts. Housed in a black pouch, the new chalks offer a unique range of colour for the eyes, lips, and cheeks. To be applied with a brush or a fingertip, they come in four colours – black, nude, copper, and red.

Three iconic products produced by Yves Saint Laurent are also being launched in new shades – the Vinyl Cream lip lacquer (in Beige Bounce and Purple Sound), the Rouge Pur Couture lipstick (in Violine Desinvolte and Rouge Provocation), and the Laque Couture nail polish (Violet Underground and Mauve Alternatif).

Products in the Yconic Purple cosmetics line are available from the Yves Saint Laurent beauty website and at other sales outlets for the brand. –  AFP Relaxnews
