Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: YSL Ombres 5 Lumieres #17

Happy Sunday everyone!

Here is a look at another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale exclusive: YSL's eyeshadow quint in #17. This palette has a selection of really pretty, girly shades:  a shimmery peach; a matte, flesh-toned pink/mauve with flecks of silver micro-glitter; a light cotton-candy pink; a sparkling ivory highlight/base color; and a neutral, medium shimmery brown.

I had the hardest time trying to get these shades to show up well in photographs. Although the pink and peach shades look bright in the pan, as you can see by the swatches they are actually quite neutral on application. These powders do not have a lot of color payoff. Despite this drawback, I still like this palette and it should come in handy for an everyday quick, no-brainer look! However, if you dislike sheer shadows you may want to skip this one. I imagine many may have similar shades in their stash, but what makes this palette attractive is the convenience of having these colors all in one place.

Below are some comparisons. (MAC's Da Bling is a bit brighter and darker than the pink in the YSL palette):

The light mauve shade is almost identical to Trish McEvoy's Demure both in color and texture:
