Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatches of the YSL Sequin Crush Mono Eyeshadow in the shades Bold Blue and Empowered Silver.
As I’ve said in the review of the Smashbox #Repost Photo Edit Eyeshadow Trio I don’t get easily excited over eyeshadows because let’s be honest, we have seen it all, so when I see something so different I get wayyy overexcited about it.
My coworker and I got so excited when we got these YSL eyeshadows at work. We were like kids on Christmas day! Keep reading to find out why they are so special.

09 Bold Blue
02 Empowered Silver
- Bold Blue is an aqua blue
- Empowered Silver is metallic silver
They are single eyeshadows which are not my favourite because I prefer palettes but for this kind of formula it makes sense they are singles. You won’t need many shades, even just one as an accent.
Being YSL the packaging is gorgeous, super fancy and it comes with a tiny mirror too.
The formula is super creamy and pigmented, it is a pressed glitter but it’s not gritty in texture. They almost look like liquid metal.
If you use a primer underneath they don’t have too much fall down. You can easily layer them.
The blue one is a bit less intense so if you blend it you’ll lose the glitter but still have the blue hint.
The best way to put them on is with your fingers and over a primer otherwise, you won’t get the maximum pigmentation.
On me, they both last over 9 hours without creasing.
- Colour: 10/10
- Longevity: 10/10

I don’t know what to say, I love these eyeshadows. The shade range, the pigmentation, the blendability and packaging. I love them. I have so many eyeshadows but these colours and the formula are so unique I needed them in my collection. I’m going to use them a lot to create some night looks.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
