Through the magic of water and a revolutionary new process, Yves Saint Laurent pushes the limits of color with PURE CHROMATICS, a new generation of eye shadows. Real makeup artist magic is made easy with emblematic harmonies that captivate the eyes.

New water-process technology, exclusive to YSL,  is the latest discovery in color for pigments more intense and dramatic than ever before!
Expect the unexpected. Water enhances color pigments in PURE CHROMATICS. When used wet, the water activates the pigments and gives full intensity to their color. The effect is the satiny powder transforms into a luxurious cream while pearls shine with a metallic finish.

Customer Reviews

Pure Chromatics

Overall rating

I have combination skin. My eyelids are usually dry and eyeshadow will not easily glide on my eyelids. This eyeshadow will glide on, and easily blend for a smoky eye look, or will combine easily to customize a color to my liking.
