YSL Yves Saint Laurent Pink Celebration Palette Highlighter, 2011

This Limited Edition palette from YSL Spring 2011 is called Pink Celebration; it is a pearly pink highlighter with an extremely cool case!

They say:

A versatile complexion highlighter and the ultimate beauty enhancer, PALETTE PINK CELEBRATION imparts a new radiance to the face for flawless skin.

The powder pink shade diffuses light, producing a delicately satin-smooth glow that is 100% Couture.

Suitable for all complexions, apply it to the face, eyes, on the neckline and shoulders, any time.


This has cute little ruffles on it and the design is a pale cooled toned rose pink.

When I saw this online I thought – light. Too light. It’ll look chalky on my medium skintone…#alttext#

As with all YSL highlighter palettes, it smells lightly of champagne (well I think it does!) and comes in beautiful packaging and has an interesting design on the top. It’s not as fancy as previous years but it only gets word down anyway!



Woah – the texture of this is lovely – it is SO soft, SO creamy. I had 2 concerns that it would be too light (it looks almost white when you swatch it) and that because it’s so soft it might go everywhere and leave me looking like a disco ball.

Actually – it isn’t too much at all. I put it on around the top of my cheek, and it’s amazingly un-blingy, it’s adds a faint glow and shimmer without looking chalky or too glittery. The only thing is I have dry patches at the moment so it has a habit to clinging to those spots (as ANY powder I use at the moment does).

But this is a seriously versatile pale shimmer highlighter, which is just right in terms of texture and shimmery-ness.

This retails for £36 from Boots, and other department stores.

    I remember swatching this with my finger at the counter and not being that impressed because it looked a bit white and scary :/ I usually tend to go with highlighters that are a bit more warm toned, but the texture was lovely!
