YSL - Make-up Sessions
What’s the last trend 2017 when it comes to lips? At Sephora you can see that Yves Saint Laurent proposes three variants in vogue this year: duo lips / combo lips, bitten lips and ulzzang lips.
As I’ve went Saturday at Sephora’s event for the Make Up For Ever Masterclass, I also joined the Sephora event for Yves Saint Laurent, but in Baneasa Mall.
I took the phone number from their event page and I called them. I scheduled it for Sunday 18.06.2017 at 13:00 (1 PM).
When I arrived, I met Carolina Velicu, the make-up artist from Yves Saint Laurent. She explained to me that I had two options for the make-up session:
1. Choose to try one of the lips variants for free;
2. Choose to get a complete make-up session with the condition of buying two products at the end of it.
I chose to try one of the lip versions and to test the foundation.
But from the foundation I got to the enlightening corrector after to powder and so Carolina Velicu decided to make me a complete, colorful makeup, in her own style and in the trends proposed by the brand.
The products used were: Touche Eclat Le Cushion, correction and also illuminator Touche Eclat, Powder Souffle D'Eclat, Eyeshadow Palette 10 - Lumieres Majorelle, Mascara Shock, Duo Stick Kiss and Blush Baby Doll, Purple Eye Pencil and a very moisturizing Lip Balm Tint-In-Balm. (You can see them in the picture).
The make-up session left me with a different look, colorful, but elegant and very well done. I liked that she used some light, pastel colors on the upper eyelid and on the lower one she used a dark purple pencil, making a wonderful visual image in the eye area. I can’t forget the cheeks and lips where I tried the duo stick, which seemed to me interesting as I liked the design of it.
Besides the products I tried, I also received some interesting information. For example, there was a limited edition Touche Eclat released for the brand's anniversary. It had golden stars designed on it and it was packed in a small bag with confetti stars. Mrs. Carolina also told me that last year Yves Saint Laurent came up with suggestions for 2017 make-up trends at the institute that decides what’s the trend for each year.

Personally I fell in love with the texture of the lipstick lip gloss. At the end of the session I bought it. I picked the color "Desire Me Pink" and its price was 157 lei ( aprox. 38$). Besides the lipstick, I received as a gift a mini red wallet for the purchase of an article.
Below you have some pictures with the final result.
