YSL's collaboration with Facebook - Devoted to Fans palette

Yesterday I went down to Facebook HQ (geeked out big time) to spend the evening with YSL learning about their new palette in collaboration with Facebook. Always one to champion breaking the rules and being that brand that create the iconic pieces we adore, YSL have sparked controversy and talk around this palette, which is created for the fans of the YSL Facebook page. Having already peaked my interest at the combination of the words "makeup" and "social media" I was keen to take a look at the palette and see what I thought of it "IRL", as such. The palette is made up of four shades, a pearly white, a facebook blue, a purple taupe and a deep matte black. I know the blue might immediately put you off, but in the context of the shades it works beautifully. I immediately got to it and inspired by the look created at the event (which you can see above) I set about swatching and creating my own look. Let's have a gander:

The shadows are soft but not breakable, they blend really well and apply beautifully. My favourite shade is the soft purple taupe, it's quite unusual and not really like anything else I have. I smoked mine out using a blending brush and swirling my brush into the dark matte black. I then lined the lower lash line with the blue, and applied the white to the inner corners of my eye. All four colours make a beautiful look and I really love the way it turned out!

Now, the palette is available exclusively on the YSL Facebook page, and there are only 1650 of them in total available to Facebook fans. Very exclusive! The 1650 that buy this, will also get exclusive Facebook content and let into perks and services through their Facebook feed. Somewhat of a YSL VIP, if you will!

Also just on a little unrelated side note, I had my nails done with the YSL polish at the event, and here's a quick snap of the colour I chose, Coral.

YSL's Facebook Devoted to Fans Palette is available to fans only of their Facebook page and costs £39.

What do you think of the YSL x Facebook collab? Do you "like" this? What do you think of the look I created using it? So stoked to have visited Facebook HQ in London! Definitely fangirled.
Love, Zozo

  2. I love the way you used them, but there's no way I could justify spending £40 on 4 small eyeshadows! x

  4. I love the palette although I'd never wear the colours, I prefer a more natural eyeshadow. Such a strange collaboration!

  5. I like this palette, and especially how you've done it :) That mauve is my favourite too, it's certainly different. Your nails are gorgeous too x

  6. I really like the shades in this palette, especially the black and greyish shade. Not a fan of the packaging however, but that's not really too important if the makeup is great!

  7. I like the idea of the palette since it's a bit 'out there', but the shades are too basic to interest me beyond that. Still, I wonder if they'll come out with any more make-up for fans of their social media pages...

  9. Errr sorry to be negative about this, but I'm not a fan of the idea. YSL collaborating with Facebook to create a make-up palette? That's just cheapened the brand by about 90%

  10. I have to say I agree with Ewa - why would a high-end brand like YSL want to collaborate with Facebook on something like this?! Kind of bizarre. Saying that, the palette looks nice enough but the look you have created is absolutely stunning! That purpley shade is definitely the stand-out of the bunch. Gorgeous.

  11. Such a different sort of collaboration, very odd! The colours of the palette look nice, though. :)

  12. that has got to be the weirdest collaboration. i think if ysl should have done a collab with a social network, it should've been instagram! it's more 'artistic' lol. but i love the palette. nice colours and nice packaging!

  15. Buying facebook fans is one of the best decisions that you will ever make in your life. This is because when you buy the fans, you don’t have to wait for months or even years for you to garner a good number of followers. Once you have placed your order and it has been processed, you will have thousands of followers in your account in a matter of hours. When you have many followers, you will appear interesting and many people will be interested in following you and as a result you will have many followers. If you are a marketer, having many followers means that you will have an increased customer base.
