It's spring! Yves Saint Laurent Boheme Libertine spring 2011 collection review

Okay, I know it's not technically spring yet, but as far as the beauty brands are concerned, it is, because the new spring collections are all coming out and I have already indulged in a few of them.

First up I will show you my rather small (by my standards anyway) haul from Yves Saint Laurent. The collection consists of quite a few items (details can be found here), but only these three caught my eye (and I'm still wondering whether or not to cough up £39.50 for the eyeshadow quint - when did YSL get this expensive???).

I got the Pink Celebration Palette and two of the four Golden Glosses (#40 and #41). Pink Celebration Palette is a gorgeous light pink highlighter powder. It's not too shimmery, but it does give a lovely sheen. I didn't swatch this as I don't like ruining the design straight away, but I did swatch it at the counter and it is gorgeous. Golden Glosses has a wonderful texture, not sticky, not too thick, they are shimmery and are definitely one of my favourite lipglosses. I got Golden Impertinence (bright pink) and Golden Insolence (bright pinky purple). Both have good pigmentation, but are sheerer than they look in the tube. There's also a lighter pink and a coral gloss in the collection, but they felt quite sheer to me, so didn't get them.

Overall, I don't think Boheme Libertine is my favourite spring collection, but there are some nice products, and I definitely recommend checking it out. There are some lovely cream blushes that some of you might like too (I'm not a cream blush person myself) and the eyeshadow quint has some interesting shades (love the pink and green!).
