This Yves Saint Laurent Wildly Gold Palette is the worst kind of limited-edition holiday palette. The. Worst.

It's a pocket-size notebook, and fancy. I'd love it if it were only a notebook. But no. YSL Beauty has to make things difficult.
Meet difficult. This thing is freaking gorgeous. Stunning. Slim and compact, evening-clutch friendly. Versatile, too. One of the most covetable holiday palettes this year. A no-brainer for the beauty archives. And therefore one of the worst kind of special-edition palettes because it's too. damn. beautiful. to. spoil. *shakes fist at YSL*
You need two. One to keep pristine forever and ever, and one you can actually use. Can you imagine? "Omigod, thank you! It's so fabulous! You're awesome! I love you! Er -- where's the other one? The one I can use?" (#rude)
I've lost time just looking at this YSL Wildly Gold Palette, opening it, closing it, smoothing my fingertips over the embossed cover, stroking the tassle -- what? TMI? Whatever.
You'll have to ask Santa for the Wildly Gold Palette, and buy one yourself for your archives. Or get two people to put one each under your tree.
You can't have mine. Either of them.*
*Wishful thinking - I don't have one I can use.
