Weekend Picks – Saturday, July 14, 2012

Lei Chic


Friendly Face

What: Social media mavens will “like” this. YSL’s newest limited-edition eyeshadow palette is inspired by none other than Facebook, complete with packaging that mimics the website’s signature blue hue. “Pure Chromatics Devoted to Fans” will be available exclusively on YSL’s Facebook page for $55, but click quickly – only 1,650 of these palettes were reportedly produced.

When: The palette goes on sale next Thursday.

Eat Lei Chic
