YSL Couture Variation Palette in Nu


After a month or so without buying any makeup, I was given a Debenhams gift card so I knew I'd be spending it on beauty! I had a bit of a struggle trying to use it online so failed to buy the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette I was after.

I decided to pop into my local store instead and that's when I spotted this beauty! It's the YSL Couture Variation Palette. They had two variations. This one called 'Nu' and a more purple based one called 'Tuxedo' that they said was exclusive to Debenhams. This one was my favourite as the colours seemed so wearable and as soon as I swatched the buttery soft shadows, I NEEDED it!





There are a few matte shades along with shimmers. One or two have some small chunks of glitter too but nothing too OTT. I love this palette because I tend to wear light neutral shades as single wash of colour over the eyes for work and this is packed with them. You can create so many different looks with this palette though.

The pigmentation is really good on these shadows and the consistency is so smooth. I think this is great value at £49 considering I paid £42.50 for one of their 5 shade palettes last month! You even get a fairly decent double sided brush with this too.


What do you think of this palette?
Have you bought a new eyeshadow palette recently?

  3. I am so envious right now! I would like to own this, but I can't justify buying yet another eye shadow palette with brown shades :( I already have too many.

    Love your post though!

    Hugs and kisses,

  4. This looks beautiful and definitely a bargain when you compare to their normal palette size and price.

  7. Are YSL and L'Oreal owned by the same people? Their new palettes look identical! Is the YSL one better quality than the L'Oreal palette? I wasn't a fan of it :(
