YSL Bronze Pyrite

YSL Bronze Pyrite is a very pretty color…

However, once again, YSL failed to nail the color to the name. If you’re going to name it after gems, you’ve got to get that shiz right. Pyrite is also known as Fool’s Gold.

This ain’t no Fool’s Gold…it is a bronze, though — with hints of gold.

Formula on this was a bit thicker than I expected. While thick, it didn’t take forever and a day to dry. The finish on this is a bit frosty and a bit metallic, so the finish looks a little messed up thanks to my application. I’m never good with things like this, so please don’t hold it against me. YSL Bronze Pyrite is still a pretty color, though.

As always, please right click on the image, choose Open in New Tab and then click once on the image in the new tab for the full-sized image.

YSL Bronze Pyrite – Shade

In the shade shot, it almost looks like a green gold, doesn’t it? Still…it’s not bronze pyrite.

YSL Bronze Pyrite – Sun

It looks super pretty in the sun, and looking closer to Bronze Pyrite! What do you think?

In case you’re wondering, this is what bronze pyrite looks like…sorry, no match.

Despite the color not looking like Bronze Pyrite, I find that YSL Bronze Pyrite is still a color I like having in my collection. I have a handful of colors that could very well be close to this, but overall none of them are dupes.

I’m happy with my purchase!
