On the heels of its artful and craveworthy Palettes Mauresque comes another pair of Yves Saint Laurent products that I simply must get my hands on. Debuting in August, the limited-edition Palettes Esprit Couture by YSL ($57) are inspired by the paradox of modern women who tackle both traditionally masculine and very feminine roles. Dubbed Harmony No. 1 and Harmony No. 2, the two palettes for face and eyes are bright and playful, with ultra-feminine hues and a hint of dark masculinity.
