YSL Bleus Lumiere Palette Collector Summer 2014 was a roaring success as far as I'm concerned. I found myself wearing the colors in interesting combinations and creating various looks. The upgraded texture and formula of YSL eye shadows has made them a great pleasure to use, as also reported by those who bought the palettes from the permanent line. I could not wait to get my hands on the fall palette, Fétiches .
The inspiration for YSL Fétiches Palette Yeux Collector Fall 2014 are leather and suede clothes, biker jackets, and a bit of tough girl chic. It starts with the compact itself, with its black leather cover embossed with the YSL logo. Definitely a nice touch. The eye shadows can be used with a damp brush, but I'd say that other than the matte black liner, all of the colors have enough pigment intensity even when used dry. I swatched using the sponge applicators that came with the palette, and only dampened the brush for the black color-- it is an eyeliner, after all.
Other than the matte black there's a gorgeous blue with the slightest hint of green (satin finish), a rich very dark brown with copper micro-sparkle, and two bright shimmers: one in camel that reminds me of the most luxurious suede and gold lamé. These are classic color, all the their very best- the prettiest blue, the richest brown. They work beautifully together in any number of combinations. It's not the most original palette, obviously, but the quality and style make up for it.
Bottom Line: a good fall look is the next best thing to Paris in the fall. Kind of.
