Yeah. Ever logged onto Facebook and thought, “Man. I would love my makeup to match my favorite website! I just love it so much!” No? Well apparently someone did. Because YSL created a special edition palette that is a “declaration of love” to the brand’s Facebook fans.
According to the brand, the “Pure Chromatics Devoted To Fans” palette “[weaves] together the now highly identifiable Facebook blue with the luxurious Yves Saint Laurent design.”
Only 1,650 of these will go up for sale on Thursday, July 19 on the YSL Beauty Facebook page for £39 ($60). Get one for your face so that it can finally look like the Facebook on which it most thrives.
Our verdict: LOL. This is just silly! Seriously, thanks but no thanks. I love the idea of making something special to say thanks to your brand’s fans, but this…it’s not a great option. First, it’s $60 for four eyeshadows. That’s a lot of money! And it’s blue. Do we really love Facebook stalking that much?
What do you think? Would you buy one of the 1,650 palettes? Or do you think this is just silly?
