    Manucure Couture: YSL’s Fall 2010 Nail Polish Trend

    In my last YSL blog post, I shared my favourite eyeshadow palette from the brand with you and, as promised, here are my thoughts on the new fall nail colours. As you can see by the photo, the hues by YSL for fall 2010 are intense, bold and all-around spectacular.

    The always on trend brand is offering nail polish duos this season. I have Duo No 3 Belle de Nuit ($32) which contains a satiny dark purple and a metallic gold lacquer. The colours are sold in sets with the idea of pairing them together for a trendy take on a traditional French manicure. Instead of a clear base with white tips, you can opt for a purple base with gold tips or vice versa. Actually, you can mix and match almost any colour in the collection this season.

    The applicator brushes are cut in a curved shape to make applying a French tip a cinch for even unsteady hands. And the colours are just so rich and gorgeous. As you can see in my pics below, the colours also look great individually. I received loads of compliments when I had these shades on my fingernails, including from absolute strangers.

    These awesome new nail lacquers, along with the rest of the YSL Fall beauty collection, will be making their way to YSL counters at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada in September 2010. The cooler weather is nothing to look forward to but don’t some of these awesome new goodies make it a little bit easier to deal with?

    New YSL Makeup for Fall 2010

    It seems I’ve got fall 2010 on the brain these days. Although I love me some summer sun, I am overly excited for the trends of the upcoming season. This is going to be one of the hottest seasons in beauty yet. The play on intense colours really works.

    I just received some samples of the new YSL makeup collection for autumn. OMG! It’s all I could have ever asked for and more. Pictured on the left are some of the new products, including the Rouge Volupté Perle lipstick ($38) which is a very smooth, nourishing lip colour and Ombres Duo Lumières ($52 in #31 Bleu de Minuit/Or Solaire).

    The eyeshadow palette is by far one of the nicest duos of the season. When it comes to YSL, I don’t have to remind you that the products are of superior quality and the textures are both rich and hydrating. I’m never disappointed in these products. But what I particularly like about this palette is that it combines fall’s trendiest shade, blue, with a shimmering gold, which is always in style according to moi. The combo is just gorgeous on and the colours match the season well. Plus, the blue eyeshadow has a hint of purple in it so it’ll really enhance brown eyes. I’m wearing these colours today and they look awesome!

    This palette is a great way to experiment with intense hues without opting for the traditional smoky eye, which is a little passé this year. The smoky look is still hot but it’s time to say goodbye to traditional black and grey and move into blues, greens and shimmering shades that will illuminate your gaze and make your eyes pop.

    This palette, along with loads more YSL autumn makeup products, will be hitting stores in September. Keep checking the blog regularly because I have lots more info to share on some of their new items, including their to-die-for nail colours of the season (you’ll absolutely loves!) and shimmering blush palette.
