Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette Collector Hearts Profusion

In celebration of Chinese New Year (February 19), YSL has released its signature eye compact in a limited-edition design, setting the iconic logo against a backdrop of sweet interlocking hearts. Inside are five romantic neutrals: the slightly iridescent brown and camel shades add richness and depth, while the highlighter hues and pearly grey impart a subtle shimmer.

Nars Narsissist Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Palette

Last summer’s launch of Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow generated buzz for its transformative texture and impressive staying power. This limited-edition palette packs seven existing hues altogether, alongside a new rich chocolate. Apply the powder dry for a sheer wash, or dampen the brush to unlock intense pigment and metallic shine.

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette

Available in seven colour combos (Graphite shown), this sculptural palette stows five richly pigmented shades—from matte to shimmery—in a single pan. The format allows both artists and amateurs to effortlessly blend colours together, while the powder’s 3-D surface makes it easier to pick up product with a brush. The creamy shadows have been finely milled to create a long- lasting, crease-free formula that can be applied wet or dry.
