A few months ago I had picked up the YSL Pure Chromatics Shadow palettes while Sephora was having their VIB promotion. I love that Sephora hosts these promotions because it gives me a chance to try out higher end products that I`ve had my eyes on for a discounted price.
I`ve been wanting to try the YSL shadows for a while, especially their Pure Chromatics line because they can be used wet or dry. When swatched dry, the shadows come out very natural and light in texture. But the fun comes in when you add water to the mixture. Using the shadows with a wet brush brings a beautiful intensity and that added bit of drama for those ready to make a statement. Not only the color, but also the finish of the shadows really stand out when the shadows are used wet and the texture turns from a light powder to more creamy.
I picked up two of these quads, and have already made a post about #8. The second quad is #11, consisting of Charcoal, Beige Sheen, Dark Brown Sheen, and Matte Black shadows. I was drawn to these shadows because I mainly wanted it for the purpose of creating the more dark and sultry smokey looks, definitely not one for the shy girls.
The shadows in #11 dry are beautiful and wearable, but they are even more stunning when applied wet. Unlike #8, I can apply all of the shadows in #11 wet without look overwhelming, or like a disco ball. Because the shadows have more of a sheen rather than a shimmer, they look more appealing to most people, and because they balanced the quad by adding a matte black, this definitely makes the ultimate smokey eye palette. I wanted to pick this up because even though they describe the shades as black and charcoal, I do see a bit of deep blue undertones, which looks beautiful with brown eyes.
Out of the two quads, I have to say that #11 is my favorite because it is more wearable and makes it more fun for me to play around with deeper shades. #8 will definitely be one reserved for the more party type of looks. But overall, with the texture, finish, and application, I feel like I am very impressed with the quality of the Pure Chromatics shadows.
