I blogged about YSL Pure Chromatics No 9 HERE. And now we have YSL Pure Chromatics No 8. It is a shimmery collection of champagne, golden beige, copper brown and olive green.

YSL Pure Chromatics No 8

According to Sephora’s website:

What it is:
Water-activated eye shadow palettes in colors that transform into a radiant, intense, metallic finish.

What it does:
These eye shadows can be used dry, like a traditional eye shadow, for a subtle shimmering effect, or wet, for a full-intensity pigment metallic finish. These remarkable properties give everyone the freedom to create any kind of eye look from simple to dramatic in seconds.

What else you need to know:
Yves Saint Laurent labs have invented the “water process” Pure Chromatics eye shadow. This process uses water, in place of a solvent, to develop the formula. Once pigments are mixed with water, dry, pure-pigmented powders are left with a very high level of shimmer.

For the FOTD, I used all four colors. The champagne shade on the inner corners and brow bone. The golden beige on the lid. The copper brown on the crease line blending upwards. And the olive green shade on the outer V.
