YSL does it again

In a previous post I mentioned how much I love pretty palettes. And Yves Saint Laurent, like Dior, does an amazing job of producing not only amazing quality makeup but beautiful products as well. Picture yourself on a beach, etching your name in the sand. Now check out this limited-edition Tresor d’Afrique Poudre de Soleil Collector Palette. Isn’t it stunning? Made out of genuine wood, this compact has a mother-of-pearl logo and was inspired by a piece of YSL’s jewellery. This is definitely a collectors item because you’re not only buying a bronzer, you’re investing in a little piece of art. Its silky texture with SPF 10 and the instant tan effect it gives your complexion doesn’t hurt either. I always wonder who thinks these up? It’s so damn pretty I don’t want to use it but I just might if the weather doesn’t improve this summer.  Yves Saint Laurent palette, $92.00. Check it out at Holt Renfrew until August. –Kate Daley
