The new YSL Summer Look 2009 Treasures of Africa Makeup Collection is a tribute to a vividly imagined land that invites us to discover the treasures of Africa. The keys to this collection, the Treasures of Africa, simmer with intense shades as irresistible as the beat of African drums. From terracotta, to warm the depths of a tan, to bright shades dedicated to an enchanting smile and eyes, the Yves Saint Laurent Woman defies the fiery rays of the sun at its zenith. It's a very pretty collection with very pretty colors! A bit expensive but totally worth it!
Tresor d’Afrique Poudre de Soleil Collector (Collector Sun Powder) ($72.00)
A mysterious wooden case, like a souvenir brought back from an unforgettable trip, this monogrammed compact contains a real treasure, an XXL sun powder. The Cassandra-logo engraved in the middle looks as if it has been written in the smooth sand of an arid shore. The shade and formula of this Collector Sun Powder are identical to those of SUN POWDER N°2 - Golden Sun, with an SPF 10 and Ampli Light + pigments. This bestselling shade heightens and illuminates all skin tones with beautiful transparency.
Tresor d’Afrique Palette 5 Couleurs Pour les Yeux (5 Colour Harmony for Eyes) ($62.00)
Purple, indigo and turquoise encounter yellow and ocher to boldly dramatize eyes. Matte or iridescent, these luminous, long-lasting, highly pigmented shadows are easily modulated to dress up the eyelids. Through every metamorphosis you choose, they can be combined in twos or threes, or stand alone for a powerful monochrome effect. This color palette features two foam applicators: a thin one for defining the lash line, and a broader one for shading and blending.
Tresor d’Afrique Palette 5 Couleurs Pour les Lèvres (5 Colour Harmony for Lips) ($62.00)
As multicolored as African jewelry, this alliance of five intense, vibrant colors is designed for precious, radiant, summer-y smiles. The three lip shades – fuchsia, pink and orange – and the two glosses – pink ivory and garnet – are gorgeous on their own or layered for results that are always unique, always flamboyant.
