I picked this up at the airport on my trip to Bali in December. I was very excited about shopping at DFS Changi which I feel has the best shopping experience. Beauty and skincare products are much cheaper than anywhere else in Singapore. I think Terminal 3 is the most exciting because it has many beauty brands. Terminal 2 which I shopped from was more subdued in comparison.
I only planned to get the YSL palette in Arctic Night but unfortunately they did not have the Christmas collection. I did find Turandot which I had my eye on but was not very sure I wanted or not. I fell in love with the swatches and decided to buy this.
This was selling at SGD $72 as compared to the $83 if you buy them at the regular counters.
The eye shadow palette is housed in the hefty finger print magnet metal casing. I love the weight of this. It feels so luxurious. I don't care that it attracts fingerprints, it is shiny and that is all that matters.
I apologise for the upside down picture. I was turning my palette this way and that for a good shot, this is the only one that represents the colours most accurately.
I really love the warm slightly orange toned gold in this palette. The formula and pigmentation is just gorgeous. It suits my warm colouring.

|Rosy plum mauve shade on outer lids|
|Taupe shade as a contour|

I have both Turandot and Harmonie Du Soir which I thought were quite similar. Don't ask me why I bought both. I can't and will not answer!
|Top to bottom: Turandot and Harmonie Du Soir|
Harmonie Du Soi is the cooler version whereas Turandot is the warmer version. I find Turandot more wearable for day looks whereas Harmonie Du Soir is great for a dramatic night time look. I definitely love the gold in Turandot more and the taupes look quite similar.
Guerlain makes really great eye shadow palettes. They are long lasting and pack a lot of pigment. They blend very well without becoming a muddy mess. I highly recommend you check these out.
Who is dying to see the new 2013 Spring Collection?
I am loving Best Things in Beauty's swatches of #502 Coup de Foudre. I have a thing for greens.
