Inexpensive Beauty Find: YSL Water Resistant Eye Shadow in Amethyst Grey

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 18 - 2011

Inexpensive and YSL.  Not two words that you’d usually find in the same sentence but as I was browsing some of my usual late-night shopping haunts, I came across a lovely beauty bargain.

For less than the price of most high-street eyeshadows, you can scoop a YSL Water-Resistant Cream Eyeshadow in a non-disgusting shade.  £4.99.  Bargain of the week yes?

Let me show you how pretty it is…

It applies wet and blends to a sheer, crease-resistant base of smokey purple/grey.  It’s a great start for building up a smokey eye or worn on it’s own as a subtle wash of colour.  It blends nicely with either a brush or fingertip and is one of those great work-to-night out essentials.

The swatch on the left shows a couple of layers built up, whilst the swatch on the right shows how I wear it most of the time with a slightly darker crease colour.

YSL Water Resistant Eye Shadow in Amethyst Grey is priced at £4.99, available online from DirectCosmetics.com

    Hmm, that might have slipped into my bag along with a Benefit Creaseless Cream for £3.99…
    Hope you enjoy that I’m spending my student loan!

    Beautiful! I just ordered one… that website is a great discovery.

    Thanks for the tip! I am always looking for transfer resistant makeup!

    Fantastic deal, but the website isn’t very shopper friendly! First you have to spend at least £5 (so I nab a brush as well), then if you want to pay through Paypal it ups the delivery cost by £2! I’ve not seen anywhere else do that?

    I’m tempted to go for it anyway seeing as it’s such a good deal, but I’m not happy about not being able to use Paypal!

    • Oh dear, you’re right – that’s a bit of a palava. I’ve found it on their eBay store here for £4.95 no minimum spend and £1.95 p&p – but I don’t know if you’re ok with ordering through eBay?

        Aha, it doesn’t charge for use of Paypal through eBay! What an odd website. Sounds fine now though, thanks for redirecting me (:

    • Sharon says:

      I don’t think they are allowed to do that, paypal doesn’t allow sellers to charge extra for buyers using paypal. Which is why they can’t do it on ebay!

      Lovely colour btw
