Yves Saint Laurent Arrived Back In Singapore!


Recently, I was super delighted to be cordially invited to attend an exclusive preview event to discover the new Yves Saint Laurent Beaute. I couldn’t hold back my excitement upon receiving the invitation. I was even more excited to learn that after 3 years of absence in Singapore, Yves Saint Laurent will be back at Singapore’s shopping belt @ Orchard Road again and it will be opening its first ever South-East Asia beaute boutique store at ION Orchard #B2-34 this coming 16 September 2012 at 12pm sharp! WOW!!

It’s definitely a great news for all Yves Saint Laurent fans in Singapore! Before, Yves Saint Laurent was only available at Perfumes & Cosmetics @ Changi Airport Terminal 3 and only limited range of products are available.

Do continue reading to find out more on how to get a chance to win Yves Saint Laurent products! There will be 55 winners! WOW!!

Yves Saint Laurent is a true visionary who loves beautify women. Can you believe he is named the Chief Designer of the Dior House at the age of only 21 years old?! OMG! He’s believed to be the youngest designer in the world. Woof!

In 1978, Yves Saint Laurent launched the women’s makeup collection with the following tag line: “Yves Saint Laurent gives a face to the woman he dresses”.

The exclusive preview event, held at Fullerton Hotel, showcased the full range of products including Make-Up, Skincare and Fragrance. I just went ga-ga over the colorful range of makeup products that I have almost neglected the fragrances and the skincare products. :D

Makeup artists gathered around at the makeup products section.

I can’t help but to go crazy with all these bold and daring colors!

Signature gold cases and colors with incredible pigments for the ultimate woman, a woman who brushes aside taboos, who is capable of inventing her life in colors that match the full spectrum of her feelings.

From Touche Eclat to Rouge Pur Couture, Yves Saint Laurent beauty has asserted itself as a prestigious beauty ritual.

“If Yves Saint Laurent were a religion, his divinity would be a woman.”

Showcasing stunning eyeshadows above! From Pure Chromatics, Ombres 5 Lumieres to Ombre Solo.

“Beauty according to Yves Saint Laurent is always linked to a presence, a beating heart. To the absolute power of seduction. It’s all about intensity in colors. The reds are redder, pinks are pinker, blues are bluer. With Yves Saint Laurent everything is “very”. There’s no room for the bland, the average or the impersonal.” Lloyd Simmonds, YSL International Makeup Artist

Blush Radiance dresses cheeks in a sensual flush of color with this ultra-chic compact that seamlessly blends matte and iridescent textures to create a shimmery, lit-from-within look.

Something for the face – Matt Touche Compact SPF 20 and Matt Touche Foundation Oil-Free SPF 10.

The packing of this Poudre Sur Mesure Semi-Loose Powder Natural Radiance does resemble the Elizabeth Arden Mineral Powder Foundation.

TOUCHE ‰CLAT, one of the most popular highlighter and is proclaimed as the leader of the highlighter category, is a MUST-HAVE Yves Saint Laurent product to own!

Launched in 1992, this best-selling, award-winning highlighter pen is a favorite amongst professional makeup artist and celebrities alike. It’s also a firm favorite with editors and VIP too.

It is no doubt the best beauty secret of the world’s top makeup artists and models!

This instant highlighter delicately places an invisible ribbon light while erasing the dark areas of fatigue, lines and hollows, making your skin looking luminously radiant and flawless.

One TOUCHE ‰CLAT is sold every 10 seconds around the world. :D

The illuminating magic light of TOUCHE ‰CLAT is in a foundation! Infused in a weightless fluid, the new LE TEINT TOUCHE ‰CLAT foundation targets shadowy areas and highlights the contours of the face. With buildable coverage and free of opaque fillers, this foundation’s perfecting texture evens the complexion and helps conceal imperfections, enhancing your skin’s natural beauty. Available in 10 shades with SPF19 broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

Each guest was invited to head down to Yves Saint Laurent’s new beaute boutique store at ION Orchard #B2-34 (upon the launch on 16 Sept 2012) to pick up our ideal shade to match our skin tone.:D

Rouge Pur Couture Vernis   L¨vres Glossy Stain is Yves Saint Laurent‘s latest lip collection that combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain for a truly innovative lip product. A lightweight texture that immediately melts onto lips. This revolutionary new lip product delivers intense glossy color for an extremely long lasting new kind of shine.

Here’s an interesting Yves Saint Laurent fairy tale commercial clip that features the making of Rouge Pur Couture. Discover the magical product that will revolutionize the make-up for the lips. Is it a gloss, stain or lipstick? Stop compromising, have it all!

In addition to Rouge Pur Couture Vernis   L¨vres Glossy Stain, Yves Saint Laurent also offers a wide selection of lip products including a variety of lipsticks and lip glosses.

The new La Laque Couture offers fashion-inspired shades, from subtle and natural to vibrant and dramatic colors. It provides a high-shine finish and its long wear formula with Chil Rose Oil helps strengthens, moisturizes and protects nails from chipping and cracking. Dries fast and applies evenly without streaking.

Featuring some of the skincare products here. I was so engrossed with the makeup products during the whole event that I have neglected the skincare ranges. I reckon I will cover more of them when I visit their new beaute store at ION Orchard after the opening.

Yves Saint Laurent offers a wide range of perfumes for men and women including some popular fragrances like Opium, Pour Homme, Jazz, In Love Again and M7 Oud Absolu.

Yves Saint Laurent invited three professional makeup artists to perform a speedy makeup demonstration (in 10 minutes) on models using different selections of colors given to them.

It was nice to see how different colors were used to create different dramatic looks.

These are all the products I’ve received upon the event! Love them all!

Received 2 shades of Touche Eclat Collector Radiant Touch Highlighter Pen.

Also received a Blush Radiance (No 4), a light natural rosy peach in color. It comes with a brush that is hidden in a pocket inside the velvet material cover pouch.

And Ombres 5 Lumi©res in No 4 (5 Colour Harmony for eyes).

Dessin Du Regard Long-Lasting Waterproof Eye Pencil in No 2, a dark brownish grey in color. This waterproof eye pencil, comes with a sharpener, offers the look of a liquid with the ease of a pencil. Love the velvety texture that glides on smoothly.

Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara (No 1 – Density Black) offers a dramatic result in a single stroke. This award-winning volumizing mascara is formulated with a coating conditioning film (pro-vitamin B5 and aloe vera) and its brush applicator combines nylon fibers of varying diameters for volume enhancement like never before.

And lastly I’ve also received the latest Rouge Pur Couture (No 17) too! This revolutionary new lip product combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain like a lipstick.

    Hi Shirleen,

    So so glad YSL Beaute has returned to our island-city. But a few of my old-time favourites are not stocked…

    If you have tried the mascara, please share with me if it is all-day smudge-proof?

  2. Shirleen says:

    Hi TW,

    Yes I’m super happy too! I actually can’t leave without the ‘magic pen’ – the Radiant Touch! Considered the best highlighter I’ve used before! The LE TEINT TOUCHE ‰CLAT foundation is superb too!

    What are your old-time favorites? Wanna share?

    I’ve yet to test the mascara though.

  3. TW says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    First of all, thank you for the info on alcohol denat and the mascara.

    I was looking forward to two particular products from YSL Beaute. They are 1) Easy Liner, and 2) Hydra Feel Essence. These were my equivalent of your 5-star “go crazy without it” products.

    I used Easy Liner to define my eyebrow. I have not found a substitute product that gives the same level of natural effect and ease of use.

    Have a restful weekend (^_^)/

    Hi TW,

    You are welcome! :D

    Thanks for sharing your favorite products, tempting to check them out soon if these products are available here.

    Have a nice weekend too. :-)

Got something to say? Go for it!
