The formula is fast-drying and applies evenly without streaking. La Laque Couture is …
The Yves Saint Laurent skincare collection is based on the success of the exclusive Glycanactif (TM) complex featured in the Forever Youth Liberator anti-aging line. The YSL SKINSCIENCE Committee of experts discovered a new glycan that meets the skin’s specific nighttime needs –hence launching Forever Youth Liberator Night Creme (50 ml; $165.00) beginning in February.
While the body is lying down, immobile for your restful hours, fluids stagnate and skin tissue becomes clogged. As the years pass, there are fewer structural glycans in the skin and water stagnates. Unfortunately, the skin …
Interesting fact: YSL‘s lipsticks are poured into the tubes while still hot, literally injecting it from the bottom up. This unique process allows the creamy texture of the new formula to be shaped, and makes for a lipstick that glides on effortlessly and bathes the lips in both color and shine.
I am always taken by the packaging and quality of Yves Saint Laurent products and often find myself daydreaming while looking at their beauty products. This new Rouge Volupté Shine ($34.00 each) is launching this February in sixteen shades.

In her revamped rendition of her best-selling multi-corrective concealer brush (a la YSL Touche Eclat), BY TERRY launches Touch-Expert Advanced ($40.00). This product now features twice the concentration of active skincare ingredients and delivers even and smooth coverage.
I sampled No. 1 Fair and it applied evenly; it has radiant light-reflecting particles making my dark circles appear less intense. I liked the brush as my Kevyn Aucoin fav is very similar, and I feel I can get a very precise application.
This particular product is enriched with six botanical extracts that, when combined, give …

The Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain ($32.00) is said to employ a unique technology that’s being called “revolutionary”, by combining the texture and shine of a gloss with the lasting wear of a stain. I snagged a bundle of the 19 available shades to see if it lives up to the hype.
The product is packaged in a stubby rectangular tube with a black plastic base and a gold YSL-embossed cap. The tube has …
Like many a wise woman, my stranded-on-a-desert-island beauty product would indisputably be mascara. I’m always on the hunt for a formula that can deliver the boldest, biggest, blackest lashes. So, I put the new Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking ($30.00) to the test to see how it stacks up in the race for the most extreme lashes.
YSL’s latest mascara is all about “shocking” volume. It’s meant to give eyes a voluptuous look from every angle, and is formulated with pro-vitamin B5 that nourishes lashes. The array …
