Couture Palette – Eyes Clothed in Colour by Yves Saint Laurent

“My Weapon is the vision I have of my times.”

A true visionary, Yves Saint Laurent imagined a new modernity.  Today the Yves Saint Laurent woman is free, empowered, able to transform every moment of her life with a gesture, an attitude, a look; for this woman knows the power of attraction lies in her eyes.  Feet firmly on the ground, her head is in the stars.  She sees what others overlook.  She pushes the limits, intuitively, passionately.

She travels light and dares to stand out from the crowd.  The Yves Saint Laurent woman plays with black, gold and color to punctuate life’s precious moments.  She’s headstrong, heartstrong.  She savors style in all its facets; her eye scans an infinite range of options.

It is for this woman that Yves Saint Laurent has revolutionized its eye color collection with the new COUTURE PALETTE.  As a tribute to the designer’s greatest sources of inspiration, the collection features 11 compacts containing 5 ready-to-wear colours, each in a signature case.

COUTURE PALETTE – The New YSL Eye Colour Technology

With its new generation formula and unique, patented manufacturing process designed to bring out the most sophisticated color effects, each COUTURE PALETTE offers 5 shades to wear in any number of combinations, for ultra senatorial, maximum-hold eye color.

“Pure Color Catalyst” Technology

At the heart of the formula lies a base that becomes a catalyst for pure color.  Nothing can spoil it.  Colour comes to life – luminous, intense, vibrant and translated into a vast array of shades and effects.  Thanks to a creamy matrix containing oils, its ultra comfortable texture glides on the eyelid in an opaque, even veil.  Its high-fidelity formula, with 12 hour hold, ensures perfect finish eye shadow that won’t smudge or run.  The colour is pure, perfectly uniform and lasts all day without re-touching. 


A Palette of High-Concentration Colour

 Designed for intuitive application, “Pure Colour Catalyst” technology delivers a wealth of effects in a single palette, from a simple, sexy, one-colour look to Couture creations of stunning audacity.  Matte or pearly, metallic or iridescent, all combinations are possible thanks to the high concentration of pigments and pearl particles.  The promise of pure color delivers a look that’s embellished, emphasized and exalted in a play of contrasts or tone-on-tones, from smoky to intense, subtly low key to vibrantly alive.

Two Complementary, Custom Applicators

To enhance the pleasure of ultra-comfortable, sensual application, Yves Saint Laurent has accessorized COUTURE PALETTE with two easy-to-use, intuitive and highly precise applicators.  The first has two different tips to use according to the desired effect: a circular tip for bold, generous color all over the eyelid; a thinner tapered tip for high precision and a graphic, personalised look.  The second applicator ends in a brush for a ‘liner’ effect or, alternatively, for blending colour over the entire lid.  Colour is maximized, while application is sensual, intuitive and totally customizable.  These are two perfect accessories for beauty without limits.

Couture Palette – Intuitive Colour Control for Signature Eyes

With the new COUTURE PALETTE, Yves Saint Laurent re-invents eye colour, offering today’s woman unprecedented east of use, free of taboos and limitations of the past.  The eyelid becomes a canvas for every whim or flight of fancy.  A mobile stage where every nuance, every color combination expresses an emotion, an attitude, a way of looking at the world.

To ensure the Saint Laurent woman has everything on her side to achieve this kind of freedom, COUTURE PALETTE contains 5 eye colours whose positioning and chromatic scale were designed by Lloyd Simmonds to make application as intuitive as possible. T he art of giving the eyes customized Couture colour, of playing the shades in every key, from sassy to sophisticated, has never been easier.
