YSL Pure Chromatics Shadow Quad - #8

4 years ago

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.

The first quad I picked up is #8, which consists of Sandy Gold, Shimmery Pearl, Rich Gold, and Golden Green shadows. The #8 quad is definitely one for the shimmery shadow lovers. The shimmers are refined enough to apply without feeling grainy, but their presence is obvious.

The two lighter shades work well dry because they apply more natural and make the shades more wearable for anyone wanting to use them daily. When used with a wet brush, the Shimmery Pearl shade tends to not apply so well (streaky), so I like to use it dry as a light highlight int he inner corners. I love using Rich Gold wet as a nice center of the lid shade blended into the Golden Green. It`s a neutral smokey eye look that`s different that the common browns or blacks.

This is definitely one to save for the parties, or more daring nights out because of the high shimmer content.
