The Most Important Thing About YSL Couture Colour Clutch – Tuxedo Is…
A 2021 addition to the Couture Colour Clutch collection inspired by the City of Lights, Tuxedo contains ten distinct shades in a variety of finishes, including velvet mattes, soft satins and shimmery metallics. Whether you like to opt for a natural, soft look or to make a bold statement when it comes to your eye makeup, this eyeshadow palette offers endless eye looks! The soft, blendable formula is rich in pigment for depth, texture and colour that emphasises every eye colour.
What Does It Look Like On?
This eye palette contains a lineup of versatile shades that can either be worn alone or blended to find a unique style; Yves Saint Laurent’s pressed powders are highly pigmented for bold, rich colour that’s easily buildable, which is ideal for an easy transition from office-ready to a night at the bar.
What Skin Type Is It For?
The Yves Saint Laurent Couture Colour Clutch can be enjoyed by all skin types, but the lightweight formula is especially beneficial for anyone who dislikes heavy powders.
You Will Love This If…
If you were a fan of the original Couture Colour palette or enjoy a sexy smokey eye, you’ll love the Tuxedo palette. Plus, the darker shades are multi-functional as they can also be used to double up as a vivid graphic liner.
What Does It Feel Like?
Each soft pressed eyeshadow blends into the eyelids effortlessly for comfortable wear throughout the day and night.
What’s Special About The Design?
Inspired by YSL’s couture designs and craftsmanship, the shadows are housed within a faux black leather clutch. Designer handbag fans will love the gold YSL logo and detail, quilted overstitching and fold-over top that’s straight off the runway. Reflective of the iconic YSL clutch that’s adored by celebrities and influencers alike, the discrete palette shape is great for top-ups when you’re out and about, while it adds an undeniable sense of luxury to any makeup collection.
How Do You Use It?
For best results, prime the eyelids before application, and gently tap the powder across the eyelid with your finger for a bold finish; alternatively, blend in with a brush for a softer look. Finish off with your favourite mascara for an eye-popping finish.
