From Preen’s digi-prints to Nanette Lepore’s playful brights to Thakoon’s paisley cowboy, we loved the candy colours on the runway for Spring 2012. Now spring make-up lines are sprouting, and they’re all about the brights – with sunshine blushes and neon pink lipsticks, why bother going neutral when there are so many vibrant options?

One of the prettiest new lines to come out this season is by Yves Saint Laurent. The collection features four lip shades, four polishes including a soft, shimmery green and shiny glosses in violet and peach. Our fave products? The pretty eye shadow palettes and the Sparkling Fuchsia lip shade that is so perfect you’ll almost be sorry to use it up. With YSL’s signature golden packaging, this is one bunch of beauty products ripe for the picking.

Yves Saint Laurent’s limited edition Spring 2012 line will be available in stores starting February.

FLARE picks: Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Candy Palette, $68, Ombres 5 Lumières N13, $74 and Rouge Volupté Perle in N114 Sparkling Fuchsia, $38, at Holt Renfrew and select Bay and Murale stores.
