YSL Devoted to Fans #1

Anna, Jen and Kate
YSL - Devoted to Fans #1 £39*

When I first heard that YSL would be making an eye shadow palette dedicated to their Facebook fans using the well-known Facebook colours, I was very uncertain. Yes it’s cool that for the first time ever Facebook is linking with a beauty brand… but YSL? And Facebook? Really? 


I went along to Facebook HQ last week in London (squeal) to see and hear what it was all about and actually I think it’s a pretty cool collaboration.
In the palette is 4 shades which when you first look at it you’d describe them as blue, white, purple and black. What I like about this palette is in fact you’re getting much more than that. The blue is my least favourite colour and an obvious choice (how could they not?!) but it looks really nice when using it as an accent colour. The white has a gorgeous purple/pink sheen to it which is really unique and similar to a very popular Illamasqua pigment. The purple is quite glittery with quite a bit of silver showing through and finally the black has green undertones making it quite an original colour. The shadows are OK when used dry, but I find they really work well when used wet. The swatches above are when the shadows are wet and this was something they really wanted people to be able to do when using this palette. So much so that they created air holes where the brushes sit, so they can dry even when the lid is closed. So thoughtful! 

The YSL Devoted to Fan #1 palette is a massive tribute and a big, fat thank you to their fans. There are only 1,650 palettes in total available and they are exclusive to their fans on Facebook. So if this is something you like the look of you can purchase it here.

What do you think of this collaboration?

  1. I bet it's a good move for their social media, but think it's a poor move for the brand in general. The packaging looks a bit cheap and just not what you'd associate with YSL, like you said. The colours in the palette themselves are lovely though.

  2. The eyeshadow looks much better applied than it does on the actual palette, I'd say. I don't like the packaging at all, but still..it's a nice "gesture" (with " since one is paying to get the palette).

  7. I really like the colours in the palette and yes I think blue is my least favourite too. It's definitely an unusual collaboration, but if it works.. why not!

  14. I think it's a nice idea, but it's pretty gimmicky and I don't think it should be advertised as a 'thank you' to facebook fans. In reality it's just a ploy for more buys and advertising, I think that for a real thank you to fans they should have asked for ideas of colours and themes for a palette and then perhaps once it was in production, given a discount to anybody purchasing through facebook or something like that. It's a pretty hefty price to pay for something marketed as a 'thank you' at £39.
