YSL Treasures of Africa Summer 2009 Collection

Ahh YSL, you forever have a place in my heart. With your luxurious gold packaging and amazing products, you know I will always come back to you.

This time its the summer 2009 color story and promo images that have me jumping up and down.

The NEW SUMMER LOOK 2009 is a tribute to a vividly imagined land that invites us to discover the treasures of Africa. The Yves Saint Laurent woman defies the fiery rays of the sun at its zenith. In the season’s visual, her lips are natural and just slightly colored to emphasize the tantalizing power of her monochromatic, deep blue eye shadow. Hovering between darkness and light with radiant, contrasting colors, she proclaims the power of supreme seduction. The sensuality of the sun illuminates her skin with golden hues, while her intense eyes affirm her presence, and her lips are sheathed in fleshy transparency.

Tresor d’Afrique Poudre de Soleil Collector (Collector Sun Powder) ($72.00)
A mysterious wooden case, like a souvenir brought back from an unforgettable trip, this monogrammed compact contains a real treasure, an XXL sun powder. The Cassandra-logo engraved in the middle looks as if it has been written in the smooth sand of an arid shore. The shade and formula of this Collector Sun Powder are identical to those of SUN POWDER N°2 - Golden Sun, with an SPF 10 and Ampli Light + pigments. This bestselling shade heightens and illuminates all skin tones with beautiful transparency.

Tresor d’Afrique Palette 5 Couleurs Pour les Yeux (5 Colour Harmony for Eyes) ($62.00)
Purple, indigo and turquoise encounter yellow and ocher to boldly dramatize eyes. Matte or iridescent, these luminous, long-lasting, highly pigmented shadows are easily modulated to dress up the eyelids. Through every metamorphosis you choose, they can be combined in twos or threes, or stand alone for a powerful monochrome effect. This color palette features two foam applicators: a thin one for defining the lash line, and a broader one for shading and blending.

Tresor d’Afrique Palette 5 Couleurs Pour les Lèvres (5 Colour Harmony for Lips) ($62.00)
As multicolored as African jewelry, this alliance of five intense, vibrant colors is designed for precious, radiant, summer-y smiles. The three lip shades – fuchsia, pink and orange – and the two glosses – pink ivory and garnet – are gorgeous on their own or layered for results that are always unique, always flamboyant.

Water-Resistant Eye Shadow ($28.50)

  • N°1 – Pink Sand – a delicate, flesh pink ideal for natural-looking radiance.
  • N°2 – Amethyst Grey – an elegant gray with subtle purple highlights.
  • N°3 – Golden Fern – a soft, khaki green enhanced with gold sparkles.
