Yves Saint Laurent gives us a metal-rock aura from our head to our fingertips

Jul 16, 2015

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty presents its new fall 2015 makeup line entitled "Pretty Metal." Rock-inspired and neo-grunge, all products from the collection will be available from August 26.

Following the playful and warm Moroccan hues chosen for summer 2015 by Lloyd Simmonds, artistic makeup director at YSL Beauty, the luxury house is introducing a much edgier style. The Pretty Metal collection highlights various shades of black, matte finishes and studs.

Nail central

This fall, the collection focuses on your fingertips with the use of dark shades, golden and silver tints. More than a simple manicure, the collection offers true fashion accessories for the upcoming autumn period.

To get the look of the season, YSL introduces Couture Metal Manicure -- stickers in Grunge Sequins featuring the iconic fashion house logo or Crystal Studs embellished with metallic gems.

For an eye-catching effect that oozes rock'n'roll and a slight rebel attitude, the Couture Palette Collector Metal Clash eye makeup collection is the perfect fit. Completely revisited with a white studded YSL logo, the eye-shadow palette includes five shades: an ashy gold, a ruby-wine red, lilac, prune and chocolate brown.

For the final touches on your eye makeup, the 3-in-1 Couture Kajal pencil combines eyeliner, khol and eyeshadow in black, cobalt blue, petrol blue and a deep emerald green. Eyebrows get some special attention with the Couture Brow 3D mascara wand available in both a golden brown and ashy blond hue.

Subtle or bold lips, the choice is yours

This coming season, lips are either daring or understated and Saint Laurent Beauty has the perfect product for each style. The Rouge Volupté Shine lipstick collection welcomes three new shades this fall: Rose in Sound, a bright coral pink; Fuchsia in Grunge for a much flashier pink and Rouge in Rock for an edgier Bordeaux red.

On the other hand, if discretion and a more low-key approach is your preference, the new Gloss Volupté lip gloss provides a nuance of beautiful tones to give a touch of color and brightness to your lips. The Pretty Metal collection includes shades like Rose Lurex, a light transparent pink, Violet Sequins for a soft grey touch and Rose Strass for a gold and silver tinted pink.  To be worn either on their own or as an additional topcoat to the lipsticks of the collection.

Pretty Metal will hit stores starting August 26 in France with prices ranging between 29 euros (Couture Kajal and Gloss Volupté) and 61 euros (Couture Palette Collector Metal Clash).
