Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent Beauty

Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent Beauty. Love is the force that moves the world and the stars. War and peace are caused and resolved by mad stories of love and passion that take hold of our souls. That love is born from such insane passion and the only way to escape from it is to give into temptation. This unconventional, upside down love that breaks all the rules is the inspiration behind the new perfume of amour fou, of mad love by Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, Mon Paris.

Mon Paris di Yves Saint Laurent Beauty is the new fragrance for women who are sure of themselves, free, and appreciate Paris for its modernity and metropolitan essence, and who are not afraid of loving fiercely and wholly with whomever they encounter, that make them unite, divide, enrage, calm and delight, and shout with happiness, pain and pleasure. A love that is dizzying and that makes you fee like you are upside down on an endless rollercoaster. The love that I’m living. 

Mon Paris by Yves Saint Laurent Beauty and my mad love story!

Like upside down love also in Mon Paris, the classic olfactory pyramid is turned on its head to highlight its fruity notes of raspberry, pear, strawberry and bergamot but also notes of the Datura flower: the narcotic flower which gives a very unique note to the fragrance. The first narcotic white chypre! The packaging is one of my favourites by Yves Saint Laurent Beauty. The silk lavallière bow is the protagonist with leather strings, held together with a little sparkly jewel: the tie is a symbol of the couture fashion of Yves Saint Laurent, and is now the symbol of a dizzying embrace that sweeps away all certainty but that binds you forever.

This is my interpretation of “Mon Paris” and of my love story, which is a bit mad, and which unites and separates us, that makes your heart skip a beat. My special guest is my amour fou Giovanni Gambassi, photos by Gabriele Colzi.

Cushion foundation: let me introduce le Cushion Encre de Peau by YSL. Such an elegant gesture!



Cushion foundation: let me introduce le Cushion Encre de Peau by YSL. Such an elegant gesture!

Cushion foundation. If there was ever a make up product that instantly reminded you of a past era, of pure and simple femininity and sensuality, of black and white films with elegant heroines, with their vespas and dreamy clothes, it is this compact for retouching your make up with a little powder puff and mirror. An elegant, refined, feminine gesture that for a while was completely forgotten, but has now returned thanks to the boom of trends for cushion foundation: a foundation that is a mixture of a liquid and a compact foundation, enclosed in beautiful little compact, that is applied with a sponge. You absolutely have to get your hands on one, as it’s the new make up must-have for 2016!

Cushion foundation: let me introduce le Cushion Encre de Peau by YSL

Amongst all the cushion foundations on the market, the one that has the most beautiful packaging, that makes you want to whip it out of your handbag several times a day, that makes your face more elegant, sophisticated and beautiful is the cushion foundation Le Cushion Encre de Peau by Yves Saint Laurent. The packaging is gorgeous, all shiny black with gold details. Inside there is the little cushion that encases the gorgeous foundation like on-the-go ink, that is as light as a feather, super moisturising and fresh for summer, but with great coverage that lasts all day without making your skin shiny (you can carry it round in your bag and retouch whenever you want, using the little sponge with it’s lovely soft texture!).

The secret of its amazing coverage of imperfections is its matte effect, but at the same time it’s lightweight feel on the skin. Water and volatile oil combine with its rolling ink gel system to create a super hydrating texture, with hybrid hold texture that contains tamanu oil plus an air light film forming system to give excellent coverage, leaving a matte, luminous, lightweight look.

Rouge Volupté Shine YSL: 3 lipsticks for 3 occasions – daytime, evening and weekend!

Rouge Volupté Shine by YSL. With spring just around the corner, hands up who wants some more colour in their life? Colour is everywhere at the moment, from clothes to  accessories and most of all on lips, as seen at the most recent shows at Fashion Week. I’m thrilled that lipstick is coming back into fashion in a big way: for me lipstick is an absolute must and, even if it wasn’t trendy, I don’t think I could ever give it up! My lipstick collection is ginormous!

The new lip colours that I’m currently trying out are the Rouge Voluptè Shine lipsticks by YSL, which come wrapped in beautifully elegant and sophisticated packaging, and are proper, high-quality sticks of oil-based colour that come with a very appealing promise: in addition to making your lips look wonderful, they will make your lips softer, plumper and more nourished in just four weeks.

Rouge Volupté Shine YSL: 3 lipsticks for 3 occasions – daytime, evening and weekend!

This is because YSL have created a totally new concept for their latest lipsticks: a formula made up of 65% oil, with a mix of 6 different oils for a mega-hydrating texture. The lipstick melts smoothly onto your lips and produces a brilliant, highly-pigmented colour with an “Aqua Shine” transparent effect, a super-smooth texture with nourishing anti-oxidants, and a deliciously fruity fragrance. There’s a huge choice of colours – you’ll fall head over heels with them all! Well, there are 24 colours in 8 new shades, that are fresh, bright and youthful, that I’m showing you in today’s blogpost in three different moods. Are you ready, ladies? :)

TOUCHE ECLAT LE TEINT, SLOGAN EDITION: I tried them out and here’s the result!

Touche Eclat Le Teint, the Slogan Edition: I tried them out and here is the result!

Touche Eclat Le Teint, the Slogan Edition. Have you ever asked yourself what is or are the beauty product(s) you simply couldn’t live without? Which are the absolute essentials in your make up bag? I personally have no doubts about which products are my all time favourites. For me, they are the products that create the base of my make up: products that give me flawless, radiant and smooth skin. No, don’t think this is impossible! Once you know what you want from your foundation, all you have to do is hunt for the perfect base make up.

During my last adventure with YSL beauty in Paris, as I’m sure you will have seen on my Snapchat (irenecolzi), I was lucky enough to try out all the new beauty products from the 2016 YSL make up range, including the gorgeous foundations.

The latest product that I tried (and that you can see me wearing in these photos) is the new Touche Eclat Le Teint, the new foundation by YSL, which promises the same dewy, luminous glow as the Touce Eclat, giving your skin the appearance of having had 8 hours of sleep, thanks to its clever wake-me-up luminous particles. It’s perfect for hiding any imperfections, is long-lasting, has a beautifully light texture, and contains SPF to protect your delicate skin.

Touche Eclat Le Teint, the Slogan Edition: what did I think?

What did I think having tried the new products? I was amazed at what impeccable coverage the foundation gives in such small quantities, and I loved how light and un-cakey it felt and on my skin (and this comes from a girl who is prone to spots, redness and has very sensitive skin). Thanks to it’s golden reflective particles, vitamins and hydrating effect, this foundation really does give your skin the most beautiful, healthy and luminous glow… even if in reality you only had a couple of hours sleep or are mega-stressed by daily life!

The finishing touch is a little bit of Touche Eclat Slogan edition, the new “magic pen” by YSL beauty that highlights and brightens the strategic points of your face, along with a touch of rock and roll with the phrase that comes with it. My favourite slogan is “No Need to sleep!”, which I say often! What about you? What sort of woman are you? Apply the Touche Eclat under the arch of your eyebrow, down the sides and corners of your nose, above your upper lip, on dark under-eye circles and on your cheekbones for a super easy contouring effect! Radiant skin even if you’ve had no sleep! Here are all the photos, what do you think of the result?

High-waisted jeans, a shirt and a hat: an EASY look for all ages!


rc=”” alt=”Jeans a vita alta” width=”605″ height=”908″ />

High-waisted jeans, a shirt and a hat.

High-waisted jeans. What is the one item of clothing that is loved by all women, of all ages, shapes and sizes? Of course I’m talking about jeans: we all have them in our wardrobe and they feature in nearly all our outfits, am I right? Jeans are super versatile and so they always help us out when we don’t know what to wear! I’m preparing a new post for you that’s dedicated to jeans, with all the hottest denim trends for next season… but in the meantime here’s one of my outfits from a few days ago where I’m wearing the most useful wardrobe staple… jeans!

High-waisted jeans, a shirt and a hat: an EASY look for all ages!

Here I’m wearing one of my favourite trouser styles at the moment: high-waisted and super skinny! They look best belted at the waist and then combined with a look that has both masculine and feminine influences.  A long coat, an ankle boot, a hat and a white shirt… possibly stolen from your boyfriend’s wardrobe. I’ve chosen to add a flash of colour… what do you think? Do you like this look? Let me know your thoughts!
