Yves Saint Laurent: Beauty Picks for the Holidays

Everything is beginning earlier this year...even the parties and events!  It is so much fun to see what will give us just the right amount of sparkle and shine for this time of year.  

This is the fabulous Coco Bell who works for the Yves Saint Laurent Beauty beauty line at our San Antonio, SAKS FIFTH AVENUE.

She recently spent time  introducing me to their wonderful products!  I finally found a powder I will wear!

She's good...right...I wish she was at my house each morning to do this!

The YSL Holiday must have list includes:
1. A beautiful berry lip combining GLOSSY STAIN FOR LONGER WEAR with ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE for just a little sparkle!.
2. For just the right amount of pink and gold for all skin tones, go with BLUSH RADIANCE or just ask for Passionee #6 Blush.

3.  The YSL star is Touche Eclat #1...famous for providing a youthful, bright face no matter our age!  This is a product for every day...not just for a party!

For those in San Antonio, please contact Coco at crystal_bell@s5a.com or call 210-839-5363, for an appointment and she will be happy to get you ready for the events on your calendar.
She has convinced me to wear powder (Souffle Declat) and a darker lip shade!!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!


  1. I love the color of the lip gloss. That' is always a tough one for me and when I find one I like I tend to go back to it every time. This color is great on you with your dark hair! Karen

  2. Great lip color. I have long heard about Touche Eclat--how do you use it?

    1. Hi Carol, Touche Eclat draws light to the right places. You put a little around the eyes for an eye brightner that is gorgeous. Also, place it in those lines around the mouth and they seem to disappear! Once you see what it does...you will love it. I recommend go and have your makeup done so you can test it!

  3. Geez, Ithought I could wear my slouchy robe Thanksgiving morning! Not really but now I know what my birthday gift should be…stylish warm PJ comfort ready for the family and photos. Smile. Linda @ bushelandapickle.com

  4. Touch Eclat sounds like a miracle. I think I may have to give it a try! And way to go being pampered for a bit ;-) The lipstick color looks great on you.

  5. You almost make me wish I wore make-up!

  6. So pretty and definitely makes me so happy to see the new holiday makeup picks ;)

  7. Hi Pam! You are absolutely beautiful and your heart shines through that gorgeous smile ;o) I'm taking a bit of time this morning to get out and visit some of the participants in this week's blog hop and wanted to pop in to see you first! Hope you are having a great week - and thanks for all your encouraging posts to keep us girls focused in a positive direction. I appreciate you! Nina @ mamas*little*treasures
