I like to tailor my eye makeup to what I'm wearing and the color of my lips, but regrettably there are days when I look at my closet and just sigh. It is those days when I can't make any decisions and I must.

It is on those days I just pick up YSL's Couture Palette in #3 Afrique. The color combination in this palette is almost fault-proof, however I go about applying this eyeshadow. There are five shades in total, the top left one to be used as a base, top right as a highlight. The base color is the perfect sheer apricot copper eyeshadow, and theres just enough shimmer to brighten the eyes. The bottom right color is a brown coppery gold color and I use this one most on my outer V when paired with the base color. My favorite of this entire palette is the middle plum-brown eyeshadow. This one works so well on top of any eyeshadows to smooth out the eyeliners.

It lasts all day long without a primer, can feel sheer to some people but this is very buildable which is easier to control--and perfect for any natural eye makeup. All five colors have similar texture to it, and the shimmer isn't too overpowering. Overall, a perfect palette if we neglect the price.

Is this a palette that you NEED in your life? No. I do not find any particular shade in this palette to be awfully unique.

Is the price worth it? YSL Couture Palettes is $60 and it cost about the same when compared with Dior's 5 Couleurs ($62) or Chanel's Les 4 Ombres ($61). I have only swatched but do not own any eyeshadows from other palettes to make any comparisons, but I love how smooth and pigmented YSL palette in #3 afrique is. It performs so well, and I experience zero creasing or fall outs. However, I would not call this a terribly splurge-worthy item to purchase as. But if you are looking for a high-end, good quality eyeshadow comparable to or even better than Dior or Chanel's eyeshadows, I do not think this will disappoint if coppery apricot eyeshadows are something that you can't have enough of!

Overall, do I regret purchasing this palette? Oh hell no! Because I am a very indecisive human being, I tend to carry my entire MAC Pro Palette with me when I am traveling. But if I am going on a trip for a day or two, this palette is all I need! I can see my self hitting pan in at least three of the shades here, and I probably cannot live without the base shadow in this palette.

I currently have YSL palette in #9 Rose Baby Doll and Plumetis from the Couture Palette Rock Resille Collector in my wish list, and let's see how long it takes before I cave in.

What are your thoughts on YSL eyeshadow palettes? Please share!

XOXO,
