Yves Saint Laurent drops a holiday glitter bomb with ‘Sparkle Clash’ collection


For this year’s holiday season, the French maison is rocking a beauty look that shimmers and shines with seasonal sparkle with its ‘Sparkle Clash’ makeup collection.

Yves Saint Laurent is standing out from the beauty crowd this year with a makeup collection that’s both fun and sexy, switching traditional sophisticated holiday beauty for a glamorous and quirky look with a rock ‘n’ roll edge. From the packaging to the selection of shades, the brand offers an explosion of shimmer and shine to sparkle your way through the holiday season.

For Yves Saint Laurent Beauté creative director of makeup, Lloyd Simmonds, the idea for this exclusive look came from a desire to rethink the outdated trend for holiday makeup that’s overly polished, too ‘done’. Simmonds sought to put fun and glamour back into the occasion and make holiday makeup much easier to apply. That way, it can be as fun to wear as it is to put on.

To complete this festive look, Yves Saint Laurent has reworked the packaging of its iconic and Holy Grail Touche Eclat, with a glittery gold and silver case. On the inside, the product is its usual much-loved self, the perfect partner for a flawless and luminous complexion. Concealer is one of those products that everyone needs to use if they’re going for a full-on makeup look. You can’t have an all-inclusive makeup look without having a base to put them on! Yves Saint Laurent has included this simple, limited edition piece in this collection, making it easy to get all of your makeup needs in this one place.

It has four shimmering eyeshadow shades in plum, bronze, gold and metallic pink, and two lip colors, with a tone-on-tone pink and a tinted red. It comes in a silver and gold sparkling case for a festive touch of bling.

Lipstick is arguably your most powerful weapon during the winter months, especially since deep and daring colors look so striking against the white snow. This season, Yves Saint Laurent has added in reds, purples, and pinks that will have you more cheery than ever. The formula is rich and full of hydration that promises to give you supple lips with a soft, smooth finish. YSL has paid particular attention to the packaging for this collection.
