YSL Beauty is here with the cosmetics launch of the season. Following the highly successful debut of the YSL Beauty Hotel in Paris, Tokyo and Madrid, the five-star interactive experience has finally arrived in Hong Kong, set in the stylish surrounds of 1881 Heritage.

With secret rooms, retro arcade games and the finest products YSL has to offer, there’s plenty to see and discover. Take a peek at five event highlights below:

Customised cosmetics

YSL are all about lending a personal touch, so it's no surprise they've included a custom-built “Lipstick Engraving ATM 2.0" machine at the event. Once you’ve selected your ideal shade and texture of lipstick, simply type your name into their touchscreen console, slip the lipstick into the allotted compartment, and watch as the machine works its magic in in a matter of seconds.

It's the perfect accessory or gift, and after all, that shade literally has your name on it.

Head in the game

YSL combine cutting-edge style with retro nostalgia for YSL Beauty Hotel. Set against a glamourous black and neon backdrop, enjoy a wide range of arcade games with a YSL twist, including “Volupté Darts” and “Black Opium Bowling” and “Encre De Peau Rainbow Toss”.

The best part? Prizes. Each activity earns you points which can be traded in for exclusive rewards. What are you waiting for? Get playing!

Makeover time

If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by all the choices on offer—don't worry. Opt instead for a makeover, courtesy of YSL’s cosmetic experts. After a couple of questions about your personal tastes and colour palate preference, lean back, relax, and enjoy as your face gets pampered. It’s located in the Black Room, but we guarantee you'll leave feeling red carpet ready. 

Don't miss this opportunity to try the all-new YSL Beauté Couture Blush, which comes in an array of tones from easy-to-wear nudes to powerful pops of color ,available for pre-sale exclusively at the event.

Model behaviour 

It’s time for you to channel your inner model in the Pink Room—after your gorgeous makeover, of course—where you can take pictures with a YSL’s charming and handsome models with help from professional photographers. We can certainly think of worse ways to spend an afternoon.

If you fancy going solo with this shoot, head to the Black Room where you can be photographed riding a sleek motorcycle against a backdrop of Hong Kong's glittering skyline.
