Everything you wanted from a matte lipstick.

With a medium coverage that is easy to build on, unlike many matte lip colours, it feels lightweight and comfortable, all day long.
Dress your lips in sheer matte rouge; enhance their beauty with a lightweight veil of luminous colour.

THE PACKAGING

THE SLIM IN SILVER

As slim as a stiletto, The Slim Sheer Matte comes in a new silver casing, distinguishing it from its leather counterpart, The Slim which is encased in gold. Like a mirror, it is handy to use for application, and stylish to pull out of a back pocket or purse.

THE CAMPAIGN VISUALS

Enter the YSL Beauté matte lipstick vestiaire, where women dress their lips in Rouge, arming themselves for whatever lies ahead. Sophisticated, subversive, and ready to cross the line, Zoë Kravitz and Edie Campbell,
photographed by David Sims, switch from being fully  dressed in leather, to wearing almost nothing but their rouge.

THE CAMPAIGN MOVIE

A duo. A subversive chase. And a series of red lines – sharp laser beams – that must be crossed. Who will get there first?

In an exciting drama filmed by Can Evgin and with makeup by Tom Pecheux, Edie Campbell stars as a sulphurous burglar. Landing in the grounds of a castle in a helicopter, she applies her The Slim Sheer Matte
before making her moves. Inside the castle, another girl applies The Slim. The women move towards one another, ducking the alarm system,  controlled by red light lasers but it’s Edie who has the upper hand, striding with sure steps towards the goal: a white, luminous pedestal in the centre of the room. Even in high heels, she steps coolly over a red beam, dodging another with a shrug of her shoulders. Suddenly she stops in her tracks, spotting her enemy, and the laser passes horizontally over her lips multiplying the sheer e€ect. The immense room is illuminated suddenly; her enemy sees her, and the pair make a final, fierce grab for the prize.

Luxuriant Haven-Summer Look 2019 by Tom Pecheux for YSL Beaute featuring Zoe Kravitz

LUXURIANT HAVEN

A hidden garden. Lush, verdant, yet suffocating. 
The heat entices, stupefies, then liberates.
Freeing the imagination, unleashing a new decadence. 
Until the garden is a playground of limitless colour, wild desires. 
A luxuriant haven.

“When you live between grey skies and grey concrete, you crave colours, and that is what this Summer Look is all about,” says Tom Pecheux, YSL Beauté Global Beauty Director. 
Inspired by the colors of Marrakech, a favorite of Mr. Saint Laurent and home  to a museum dedicated to the legendary designer, Tom Pecheux created a collection with vivid hues, warm tones and shimmery shades. 

From lime green to bright orange, the colors exude fiery intensity. Whatever the look you want to create, impressive or subtle, sophisticated or just for everyday, this collection defies the designations and demands to be worn.  

Zoë Kravitz, YSL Beauté’s World Ambassador for Makeup and Perfumes, fronts the new Yves Saint Laurent Luxuriant Haven Summer 2019 campaign created by photographer David Sims. “I wanted her eyes to look like tropical leaves…hypnotic, luscious…” says Tom Pecheux. 
Sensual and sophisticated, she perfectly reflects the theme of this makeup collection: luxuriant haven.

Black Opium Intense // YSL Beauty// Launch campaign

BECOME THE NIGHT

The intensity of the night takes over. Like a blue aura, cloaking her in mystery, evoking a powerful energy. The iconic darkness of black coffee is paired with the magnetic aura of blue absinthe. The thrill of a new overpowering desire. An invitation to feel sensuality to the fullest. Switch off the lights…and let the night take over.

YSL Beauty introduces its latest addition to the BLACK OPIUM family: The new Black Opium Eau de Parfum Intense, embodied by YSL global ambassadress ZOE KRAVITZ.

A modern, young & vibrant interpretation of addiction.

Zoe Kravitz x Black Opium Intense

THE PERSONALITY

Assertive and unique, the BLACK OPIUM woman embodies the new Yves Saint Laurent spirit. Free and self-confident, she expresses a femininity glamourous yet impertinent. Always searching for new experiences, nothing will stop her.

 

THE FRAGRANCE

A BLUE MOOD

Strong, bold, with an intensity that is unashamedly seductive, new Black Opium Eau de Parfum Intense fragrance for women brings a new magnetic light to the iconic coffee-floral accord.
Blue absinthe, flavoured with wormwood, and aromatic herbs combines with anis and sweet blue boysenberry; jasmine sambac absolute fuses with orange blossom absolute, making up the sensual heart of the fragrance.
At the base, the sultry coffee note that underpins the Black Opium iconic olfactory signature is accompanied by licorice, sandalwood and creamy vanilla for a deliberately daring, ultra-feminine scent. 

THE BOTTLE

INTO THE BLUE

A distinctive blue take on the signature Black Opium bottle, inspired by the hue of absinthe, like a deep blue aura against the backdrop of city lights. Mysterious, magnetic, and thrilling in its intensity, the glittery deep blue of the Black Opium Intense bottle is irresistible, like a woman in a couture dress, dancing under the blue moon of a night sky, twinkling with stars.

Are you ready to #walktheline?

Rouge Pur Couture The Slim // YSL 2018

COUTURE & CASUAL

Convention and rebellion; couture and casual. Where do your limits lie? Made for the woman who loves to trace her own path, Rouge Pur Couture The Slim is the ultimate lip fit.

Inspired by the dense colour and suppleness of leather, RPC THE SLIM instantly emboldens the lips with a full coverage, ultra-pigmented matte finish in a single stroke.

The soft formula glides on creamy, moving comfortably with your lips, just like the perfect skinny fit jeans. A texture so light and supple you will forget you even have it on.

So dare to walk the line.

The ultimate matte lipstick, Rouge Pur Couture “The Slim” saturates lips with ultra-rich, high-pigmented matte color that feels weightless and incredibly comfortable on the lips. The non-drying, creamy formula glides on effortlessly and stays put all day so you don’t ever have to worry about bleeding, cracking or reapplying. The couture slim square bullet design, inspired by the iconic designs of the Yves Saint Laurent Couture House, allows you to achieve a neat, clean and beautiful result in just a few swipes.

LEATHER-MATTE LIPS

Rouge Pur Couture The Slim reinvents lipstick as you know it with an ultra-slim, square-cut bullet that gives you precision to push lips’ curves. Classic and couture, yet effortlessly cool; gold metal accessorises edgy matte black in Rouge Pur Couture The Slim’s stand-out packaging.

“The dense, powdery texture and intense colour of Rouge Pur Couture The Slim calls for a perfectly defined lip line. Drawing a square shape around the Cupid’s bow before applying lip colour is an insider trick known to professional makeup artists. So, I simplified the application process and designed a square bullet to help women create a sharp lip line for themselves.

To create a volumising effect on lips, I would start at the centre of the upper lip, using the square corners of the bullet to create a distinct Cupid’s bow. Then work outwards, using the sides of the square to add a highprecision, sharply-defined lip line on both the top and bottom lips. This accentuates the natural curve of the lips, delivering that volumising, ‘push up’ effect.” – Tom Pecheux

BE THE WOMAN WHO DARES

Shot by photographer Craig McDean, Edie Campbell is a woman who likes to push the limits. A paradox, a contradiction; she is couture and casual, seductive but nonchalant. Revelling in the extreme, she waits amidst the sleek graphic lines of a car park, RPC THE SLIM No 21 Rouge Paradox held loosely in her hand. A flash of leather skinnies, a leather matte finish to her lips; Edie invites you to join her – it is your time to #walktheline.

ADAM LEVINE X Y EAU DE PARFUM // YSL

NEW Y EAU DE PARFUM MASCULINITY REDEFINED

Y Eau de Parfum is the latest addition to the Y story. The new fragrance is a bolder, strong version of Y telling the story of a man who is more advanced in his accomplishment path but for whom the “why” question is still very present. 

Y by Yves Saint Laurent is not the story of one man but of a whole generation: a creative generation of men who dare to follow their passions and carve their own paths. From inspiration, through hard work and collaboration, to self-accomplishment and success. New Y Eau de Parfum is a seductive interpretation on the iconic Yves Saint Laurent white t-shirt and black jacket.

THE Y MAN

Y Eau de Parfum represents a man who has accomplished his dreams and is moving towards a new tomorrow. He’s a man willing to share his ideas with a focus on improving the world; a man established, confident and capable of facing the challenges presented to him. He’s one step further on the route to accomplishment. He takes nothing for granted. He will always keep believing, always keep pushing, that’s Y he will never stop.

THE FRAGRANCE

Created by the legendary perfumer Dominique Ropion, Y Eau de Parfum is a light and dark fougère fragrance, featuring fresh citrus and aromatic notes followed by a deeper intensity of sensual woods. It perfectly complements the multifaceted personality traits of the Y man.

The start of the scent is fresh, a tangy and explosive duet of bergamot and ginger. A freshness contrasted and emphasized by a fruity, juicy and crunchy green apple. Sage and juniper redraw a powerful masculinity boosted by elegant notes of geranium absolute to provide freshness and contrast. The background of the scent is more intense, more sensual and more masculine with the addition of vetiver that reinforces the mysterious depth of olibanum and tonka bean.

THE BOTTLE

The Y EAU DE PARFUM for men’s iconic bottle is an expression of modernity. A sharp & minimal design, sliced with the strong Y identity as a creative signature.

THE AMBASSADOR

Despite being all about the music, Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine ventures into new territory as the face of Y Eau de Parfum. With three Grammy Awards as part of Maroon 5, six succesful albums and his stint as a judge on the US version of The Voice, Levine was deemed the perfect choice to front the Y Eau de Parfum campaign. In a statement, YSL Beauté described Levine as personifying the spirit of the fragrance, which is about the willingness to push oneself in the pursuit of success.

A bold creative force with a sense of his place in the world, Levine provides the perfect blend of youth, establishment and creativity. With his lack of fear and an intensity of vision which mirrors the dark heart of the fragrance; as he also has a clarity of thought, which reflects the bright, inclusive spirit of the scent.

In a nutshell, Levine effortlessly embodies the Y values.

 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!

APPLICATION TIPS by LLOYD SIMMONDS

“The transparent pigments in this formula create a ‘barely-there’ impression on the skin. Its glow gives the illusion of health and vitality, tricking the eye – and the wearer – into feeling and looking better.”

“The Y shape reservoir is deep enough to withstand a few drops, but don’t fill it all the way up immediately. Add just one droplet at a time – less is always more when it comes to foundation.”

“Begin by making circular movements on the face with the brush, massaging the foundation into the skin, starting from the centre of the face and moving outwards, spreading it evenly.“

“For any areas that need a bit of extra attention, tap into the skin with a stippling motion to deliver more product where you need it – perhaps around the nose, chin and forehead. Keep the layer as thin as possible to help unify the colour.”
