2020 has been a rather tame year, but YSL Beauty isn’t about to let the year end on that note — not for the year-end festivities, that is. With stunning leopard prints running wild across their 2020 Holiday Edition collection, you’re looking at limited edition makeup items, fragrances, and gift sets that feature the season’s luxurious red and gold, all of which embody the sensual yet bold flair of the big cat.
The look here, as seen on Kaia Gerber, is this: a glowing complexion that forms the perfect base to flatter those graphic cat eyes, achieved by some expert colour placement with coral, red brown, dark green and slate grey shades from the Holiday 2020 Couture Colour Clutch Palette. That’s then finished off with an assured slick of the Rouge Pur Couture lipstick, in Nº1 Le Rouge.
For the festive couture-inspired makeup, there are 5 items you’d want to be on the prowl for — the Holiday 2020 Couture Colour Clutch Palette, adorned with the YSL Cassandre logo while encasing 4 eyeshadows, 4 shades that can be used on the eyes or as highlighters, and 2 blushes; the brand’s iconic Touche Éclat; the Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks dressed in glittering red; and the Rouge Volupté Shine with black leopard spots on shimmery gold. Both lipsticks see four colours each, which you can compare in the photo gallery at the end of the article.
What will no doubt be a collector’s piece is also a mini-sized Le Cushion Encre de Peau, now in a new highlighter formula. Within that sleek black-and-gold case, you’ll find a pearly-gold and rose cushion highlighter, so we can all achieve that Kaia Gerber glow while on-the-go.
For YSL fragrance fans, know that the Black Opium EDP, in particular, is also dressed to the nines for the party, this time in a glittering red leopard print atop the cult scent’s glossy black bottle. That sexy exterior elevates the oriental gourmand that combines black coffee, jasmine, orange blossom, vanilla and patchouli in an addictive haze; you’ll want to match up to the way it smells.
Of course, there are several gift and fragrance sets that come wrapped up in the same beautiful packaging, while you’ll also be able to customise your own bottle of the Black Opium or Mon Paris at YSL Beauty counters. They will be offering customised engraving on the bottles, and you get to pick either the zippered jacket pattern for your Black Opium, or your choice of the lavish pendant that adorns the Mon Paris EDP bottle.
