YSL launches exclusive Facebook-inspired eyeshadow palette
In collaboration with Pantone and Facebook, YSL are launching a limited edition line of cosmetics, named Devoted to Fans, with the first product to launch being the Devoted to Fans #1 colour palette – be warned, though, only 1,650 fans will be able to get their hands on this uber-exclusive item.
According to YSL’s marketing and digital director Carla de Préval, the Devoted to Fans product line is YSL’s method of ensuring “a complete and global vision of digital – to separate [the brand] from a completely internet-orientated vision and to really digitalise all points of contact”.
Damien Vincent, commercial director of Facebook France, said: “This is a fitting tribute to a vibrant and passionate demonstration that Yves Saint Laurent is a modern and dynamic brand with consumers knowing the heart of its marketing strategy.”
Lucky and quick-off-the-mark fans will also receive exclusive privileges and services, available through their Facebook feed and in-store. The palette launched on 19th July, and is priced at £39.
The high quality packaging is typically YSL – with luxurious gold detailing and a gorgeous blue cover, a nod to Facebook. The Facebook-inspired palette features an eyeshadow quad consisting of amazing colours, including a Facebook-esque blue, black, white and grey, suitable for creating daytime neutral eyes as well as a vampier, smokey eye for a night out.
