With a pretty serious cold (the kind of serious wherein the cold virus means business, not the kind where it glares grumpily at everything
though that, too) and spotty sunlight at best, my progress photographing and testing out the new YSL Arty Stone collection is plodding along pretty slowly.
Here’s a collection overview to get you started — I’m most excited to test out the Rouge Pure Couture Vernis à Lèvres in Pêche Cerra-Colla, Volupté Sheer Candy in Framboise Craquante, and the Crème de Blush formula. While I’m not much of a nail girl, La Laque Couture in both Jade Impérial and Bronze Pyrite will be coming up as well!
On counters this January & online now at Nordstrom, for those of you who’d rather not venture out into the cold.
Gems fascinate with their magnetic beauty and their mysterious power of attraction. The Spring Look 2013 is a palette of mineral and crystalline colors, inspired by the brilliance of precious stones.
“After an acid pop trend in 2012, the Spring Look 2013 is a return to calm. I wanted a palette of colours in halftones, pastel but intense, fresh and powdery, almost milky. To use as a play of harmonies for a chic Parisian look or contrasted to show-off a rock attitude.”
