ABOUT THE BRAND:
1978 was the year Yves Saint Laurent stepped into the world of beauty with his makeup collection. Hallmark gold cases and colours with incredible pigments for the ultimate woman, who brushes aside taboos, who is capable of inventing her life in colours that match the full spectrum of her feelings. It was the extension of a fashion epic that began in 1961, with the founding of the Yves Saint Laurent house of fashion. A house whose fragrances were the olfactive hallmarks in a distinct breakaway mood, magnified by Opium in 1977. Adorning and enhancing strong personalities: the unfolding of a style, the reflection of an attitude, a bearing, a trail, of Yves Saint Laurent beauty. A personalized manifesto.
The YSL Collection
The great fragrances from Yves Saint Laurent, each one a revealer of emotions, are a statement of a unique, ground-breaking character. Today, they are dressed in new packaging to celebrate their timelessness. Inspired by a Bauhaus chess set, these bottles and their uncluttered lines are plated with faceted lacquer, adorned on one side with the name of the perfume, and on the other with the olfactive composition, from which emerge just the bare essentials with which to rediscover totally contemporary fragrances.
Touche Éclat is a cult favorite among top makeup artists, models, celebrities and women everywhere. 1 Touche Éclat is sold somewhere in the world every 10 seconds. This golden pen is the #1 beauty tool and makeup bag essential for the modern woman. Not just a concealer, Touche Éclat is the original face highlighter that launched a new generation of makeup. It emphasizes radiance over coverage and does not mask the skin for a more natural, luminous complexion. Touche Éclat is 8 hours of beauty sleep in a click.
ROUGE PUR COUTURE
Our new-generation lipstick inspired by Monsieur Saint Laurent’s iconic colour palette: red, fuchsia and orange, this collection of captivating couture shades offers each complexion a customised look. The luxurious gold case that doubles as a handy mirror unveils a SPF 15 moisturising formula that saturates lips with intense, stay-true colour and medium to full coverage with a radiant, satin finish for up to 6 hours.
MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS
A false lash effect in a single stroke. At the heart of this modern classic, our unique triple-film complex remains unchanged. A coating film for intensity, a conditioning film for curve, a fixing film for long-lasting effectiveness. Now enriched with further care ingredients – 4 sensuous oils, the formula leaves lashes more flexible, lengthened and feel more durably supple. The sense of volume and care of the new improved formula will continue to delight the original fans and attract new ones. Available with six signature shades, intensely pigmented, for a highly seductive eye look.
ALL ABLOUT HIM – LA NUIT DE L’HOMME
A purebred formula around shadow and light, warmth and coolness. A fragrance of contrasts that endlessly resonates with the questions it asks then answers, from top to bottom, tangling then unravelling, fighting then taming. La Nuit de L’Homme embodies the promise of everything possible. The promise of subversive seduction, of the unknown, of danger and temptation. An irresistible hand-to-hand confrontation, wrapped in cardamom, cedar, lavender and robust vetiver, magnified by an intense and mysterious Garrett Hedlund, one of Hollywood’s most promising new talents, who expresses this duality to perfection. Tension and brute force, elegance and virility, dressed in a bottle of glass and black lacquer.
