YSL brings street-inspired shades to urban-themed spring 2017 makeup

Jan 19, 2017

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty has given spring 2017 makeup an urban vibe with street-inspired graffiti themes and bold colors.

After dicing with a provocative side this fall with the "Scandal" collection, Yves Saint Laurent's makeup has embraced a very different world for spring 2017, with a collection inspired by the concrete jungle. The result is an explosion of urban shades in a collection dubbed "The Street and I."

Staz Lindes is the face of Yves Saint Laurent Beauty's spring 2017 makeup collection, "The Street and I."

YSL has signed up a new face to launch this spring makeup line. Staz Lindes stars in a campaign set against an urban backdrop shot by Craig McDean. The shots notably see the model posing in front of a graffiti-covered wall.

The beauty brand has six color pairs to choose from with "Baby Doll Kiss & Blush Duo Stick," a compact matte-finish color balm for lips and cheeks. It can be used to mix colors or to build a single shade, varying the intensity of color. Pairings include the coral/fuchsia "From Marrakech to Paris," the pale pink/flesh pink "From Me to You" and a cherry red/plum brown "From Mild to Spicy."

The "Couture Palette Collector - Keep An Eye On Me" compact features five eyeshadow shades inspired by the street, with a pale pink, an asphalt gray, an orange, and a pair of pinks. This can be matched with the iconic "Dessin du Regard Arty Duo," a two-tint eye pencil with applicator, or "Dessin du Regard Blanc Arty."

For the lips, YSL has released four new versions of "Rouge Volupté Shine" -- a pinkish red, a vibrant orange, a pop-art pink and a coral tone -- and two new colors of "Gloss Volupté" -- an intense fuchsia and a candy bright orange.

YSL's "The Street and I" collection brings two new limited-edition "La Laque Couture" nail varnishes (a bold orange and an asphalt gray), a "La Laque Couture" nail color in white, and the "Face Palette Collector - I Have a Blush On You" compact, featuring a bright orange blush.

The collection is due out from the end of January 2017.
