Rouge Pur Couture.
The three newcomers to hit the YSL Beauté scene. A nourishing lip oil, a glossy stain and a pure colour lipstick, a perfect combination for this makeup celebration! Team a hip East-London venue, a handful of fashions elite and of course makeup to die for and you get the ‘YSL Loves your Lips’ party.
The setting – The Old Trueman Brewery on Brick Lane, a converted warehouse was decked up YSL style. Outside the paparazzi waited patiently for the woman of the hour and new face of the YSL Beauté range, Miss Cara Delevigne. Other guests included designer Henry Holland and pop princess Pixie Lott. I attended with my friend and BBC 1xtra presenter Yasmin Evans.
Whilst sipping on cocktails you could make a stop at the YSL beauty bar. A sanctuary armed with five of the top makeup artists in London. Wearing the high-tech Google glasses they receded their transformation taking a before and after shot as well as recording throughout (watch here – http://youtu.be/nEKi2p8jqRo) Yasmin and I (both lipstick lovers) went for the new rouge Pur couture collection. I opted for the 1- Le rouge and Yaz for the 7- Le fuchsia.
