.

For spring 2013, among many fairly colorful makeup collections from various brands, pink and green seem to be two of the trend colors. There is a range of pink hues, from soft peachy pinks to dramatic fuchsia pinks. On the other hand, green has been a key shade for some time (spring 2012 and fall 2012). The palettes from Mary Quant (above) and YSL (below) include both shades.

Here is a look at some of the highlights of YSL‘s spring 2013 Arty Stone makeup collection. The two limited-edition star items of the collection are the Y Facet Couleur Palette (Pure Chromatics in 14) and the Y Facet Lumière Palette (both below).

Dior’s holiday 2012 Grand Bal makeup collection features chic gold-toned neutrals for the eyes and seductive reds for the lips and nails. The Grand Bal palette, in a sleek gold case, also includes a gold-toned eyeshadow, and I like the look of the Diorific items in the gold packaging as well. The collection has a glamorous and opulent feel.

YSL Golden Gloss 55 Arctic Blue Holiday 2012 Makeup 1

.

After YSL released Gloss Pur in 11 Icy Effect in summer 2011, I didn’t think there would be another blue-tinted lip gloss from the brand anytime soon. However, YSL’s holiday 2012 Northern Lights makeup collection, with an unusual blue color theme for the festive season, features Golden Gloss in 55 Arctic Blue.

Purple and green have emerged as the dominant colors for fall 2012. Continuing from the spring 2012 makeup trend, green is still a key player. On the other hand, I am glad that purple is back on trend.
