Fall Makeup Swatches | YSL Scandal Palette | Chanel | Video

I'm finally getting into that Autumn vibe with a few items from the new YSL Couture Line and from Chanel.  I have to say that both the eyeshadows from Chanel's fall line sold out quickly so I was only able to get my hands on one which was Rouge Noir, the other one New Moon is a part of their permanent line so I picked that up as well.

I bought the Chanel New Moon Long Wearing Eyeshadow because I initially seen swatches and fell in love with it. It's described as a shimmer with shimmery particles throughout. The color is a rosy peach with hints of gold, the gold doesn't show up as much but the other colors blend in and gives it a radiant shine. This can be worn alone or on top of another eyeshadow.  I've been wearing it alone because it's so pretty. I like applying it first just over the lid, not going into the crease, then I apply a cream Mac fluidline on top, one that's not too dark but suble enough to show over the eyeshadow.

I bought the Chanel Rouge Noir Long Wearing Eyeshadow because I needed a darker burgundy shade to go along with the shade above. This shade is very pigmented and much darker than I expected. It's too dark to wear on the lid, so I can only wear it in the outer V and blend it upward into the crease.

YSL #409 Burgundy Vibes
I fell in love with the YSL #409 Burgundy Vibes Lip Stain.  The color is between a orange an a red. I have a darker pigment in my lips and it pulls a more orange color onto them. This is a lip stain but it also has a lot of moisture as well. It doesn't dry down to a matte finish because it's not meant to be matte. It leaves a nice glossy finish on your lips. It does transfer onto a glass so be aware of that fact as well. They have quite a few other colors that are beautiful for the summer that i'm interested in purchasing.

The YSL Couture Palette in Scandal is a limited edition palette that was a must have for me to purchase. I have quite a few of these LE palettes as well as 5 of the regular palettes.  The pigment is very soft and buttery. It applies smooth and evenly. It doesn't require a lot of swiping to pick up the shadows of the brush. If you're older and have hooded eyelids or very sensitive skin around your eyes, these eyeshadows will work for you.
