I wasn't so impressed when I saw this fall palette from YSL. An initial made into bronzer/highlighter seemed pretty boring. But then the "stitching" on the Y itself caught my eye and I thought, maybe this Y has shown up on a dress or bag.
And indeed it has! Obviously the one with the metal studs is my fave out of these 4:
YSL Beauty doesn't normally come out with such literal interpretations of the company's fashion, so this was a nice little surprise. Plus the website's statement that the stitching gives the "allure of a true handbag
accessory" reminds me a bit of Chanel's tactic of putting their interlocking C's on their makeup - if you can't afford a bag with the Chanel logo, you can at least have a lipstick palette with it!
