FEEL THE HEAT OF LOVE
She sits atop a beat-up car; bare-foot and free; the wind blowing through her hair as if whispering “Come on, let’s go!”.
Tattoos, spiritual emblems picked up from obscure places she’s visited along the way, sparkle in the heat of the desert sun. Her eyes are rimmed with shadowy colour, challenging others to peer deep into her soul.
Escape is a state of mind: dare to take the journey.

COUTURE PALETTE COLLECTOR
The highway to freedom.
The dreams of the desert.
The secrets of an adventurous spirit.
Reflecting the harmonious synergy between earth and sky, Couture Palette Collector Savage Escape for eyes ties the bright blue of a hot summer horizon
to the dusky browns and pinks of the sunset hitting the hills. A testimony to the spirit of the road trip.
Encased in a compact reminiscent of suede and the colour of sun-bleached blue jeans, the palette is instantly recognisable. The iconic YSL ‘Cassandre’ logo, this time emblazoned in rose gold and styled like
a Native American emblem, evokes a modern trailblazer; a woman embracing her destiny, wherever it lies.
FULL METAL SHADOW
Fast. Furious. Facing the uproar of life and racing through.
YSL Beauté introduces two new shades to Full Metal Shadow. The same 16 hours’ worth of full colour pay-off. The same high pigment water based solution that can be applied easily, quickly with just a stroke of the applicator. The same lush, glossy metallic sheen, achieved thanks to YSL Beauté’s unique Metallic Lustre Technology.
And a brand new high voltage glamorous look. Powerful. Luminous. Chasing the grey away and creating a mirage of light. Inspired by the raw blue of denim and the copper studs on a jean pocket.
N°11 Bonnie Copper
A gorgeous gold, for a glimmer over
the entire lid, or teamed with the navy blue for a dramatic effect.
N°12 Blue Clyde
A powerful addition to a summer makeup look; bringing a new energy when worn by itself or paired with the gold.
A metallic shine. A flash of ruby pink.
A natural fullness in 3-D.
Two new lip glosses that bring a sensuality and sparkle to any road trip.
N°54 Aurora Pink
A pale pink to reflect the colour of dawn over coppery mountains.
N°55 Rose Eldorado
Like sunset on a desert horizon, a vibrant pink with ruby undertones.
LA LAQUE COUTURE
The tension of summer.
Deep, dark blue like night in the desert. Warm, sandy pink like metallic rocks. Play up the contrasts.
YSL Beauté introduces two new shades of nail lacquer to add a touch of dramatic tension.
N°71 Savage Pink
Like the marbled, granular flecks of pink in granite, a pale rose with a subtle shimmer.
N°72 Night Escape
Imagine an endless night, the romance of sleeping under an open sky, captured in a deep metallic blues.
COUTURE SKIN JEWELS
Energy, rich with stories of adventure.
A metallic symbol.
The enjoyment of a life lived to the fullest.
Expressing a wild beauty and an extreme sensuality that has become synonymous with the spirit of the YSL woman, the Couture Skin Jewels offer three deluxe temporary tattoo sheets.
Golden as the sun, they grab the light just as they grab the imagination. Open the envelope. Choose from a variety of styles and wear them wherever the mood takes you: an iconic YSL ‘Cassandre’ logo in gold or black; an elegant cuff that looks wild yet sensual when worn on the wrist; individual motifs for fingers or feet.
24 hours of play, passion, and then? The chance to begin all over again.
Golden sands; billowing clouds, Hot blue skies; a trail of brown dust in her wake. Burning up the road, not caring where she’s headed. Until the sun goes down. The sensation of freedom.
SAVAGE ESCAPE, a road trip to colour. Feeling the wind through her hair under the sun; Sleeping under a cluster of stars. The landscape is a part of her. She says goodbye to all she knows; Until the next adventure.
Interview with Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Makeup YSL Beaute
How did you achieve the dramatic eye look in the ad campaign starring Cara Delevingne?
I used the Full Metal Shadows, which I personally feel are a great modern way to do eye makeup. You take a swipe of the sponge applicator using the gold along the roots of the lash on the top lid, then smudge with your fingers, and leave to dry. To get a strong sense of contrast, I did the same thing on the lower lashes, using the blue shade. Add mascara, and that’s it! What I love about this look is that you don’t need to be a makeup artist to do it, and yet it is still directional.
What makes LES SAHARIENNES BRONZING STONES so different to any other bronzer?
They are completely weightless, so you don’t see any trace of product on the face, just colour. It suits all complexions as you can apply it on top of foundation to add life to it, or directly to bare skin. It’s very versatile too – a quick brush of powder over the cheeks and nose gives a healthy glow to the skin, but you can also brush it all over the face, neck and collar-bone in a darker shade,
for an all-over tanned effect. The whole point of summer is to ease up on things – including your makeup routine – and I love the way this leaves the beauty of your skin to shine through.
Can LES SAHARIENNES BRONZING STONES be used for contouring and sculpting the face?
Absolutely – the texture is so fine that it works really well. Just use one of the shades that’s darker than your skin tone, then with a narrow brush, sweep it underneath your cheekbones and up towards the ear. Repeat under your chin and jawline, brushing and blending it downwards towards the neck. Next, brush on to your temples and at the root of the hairline. The overall effect is to accen- tuate bone structure and enhance your features. Try and avoid the temptation to overly correct though – in my experience, sculpting the nose works for pictures but it’s easy to get wrong for real life.
How can you wear the two shades of blue in the COUTURE PALETTE COLLECTOR SAVAGE ESCAPE in a modern way?
The dark blue is modern in itself, because it’s not too highly pigmented. Just as everyone looks good in jeans, everyone can wear this shade of blue. Apply it to both upper and lower lash lines and blend it outwards for a touch of drama. The paler blue has a slightly more shimmery texture and can be worn as a highlighter or a wash of colour. I particularly like it when it’s applied to the inner corner of the lid or in the centre of the upper eye lid. It gives a lift to the eye and adds a touch of shimmer, which isn’t difficult to wear.
How did you use the tattoos on Cara Delevingne?
I love these tattoos because they look great on the skin. They’re easy to use – you just cut out whichever bit of the tattoo you want, place it on the skin, and then press with a wet sponge until the image has transferred – seconds rather than minutes! We used them on Cara as if they were jewellery, on her fingers and feet, like rings and bracelets. They’re fun and easy!
