Pretty Metal and More
a handful of new items from YSL. the first is their fall collection, aptly named PRETTY METAL. i guess they're embracing the rocker vibe this fall, with the introduction of wine/plum/burgundy colours, you know fall is coming. there're a couple of new releases in japan this coming september, i'm not sure if they're part of any collection or if they're just new colours to the existing line. most items are limited edition.

EDITOR'S THOUGHT: other than the pretty metal collection, i believe several of the items might be japan exclusive because i don't see them on their official websites yet (both japan's and america's). tried looking for more information on these limited edition colours but i found none. i usually feature drugstore brands, but i have an unexplainable attraction to YSL so i thought i'd share their beautiful collection. i also noticed the japanese YSL branch name some of their products slightly differently from the states, so do not be alarmed, they are the same products! the matte nail polishes are calling out to me even though i don't usually wear nail polish.
