YSL Beauty’s New Eyeshadows Are About To Make Shimmer A Staple In Your Makeup Look

YSL Beauty

Lately it seems like beauty brands can't get enough when it comes to shimmer. You won't find any complaints here, because there's no better way to make a statement with your eyes than with a swipe of shadow that sparkles in all the right ways — so if your makeup shelf is currently lacking a glitter-infused shadow or two, now's the time to stock up. And since nobody does glitz and glamour better than YSL, you'd be smart to pick up a shade of its brand-new YSL Beauty Sequin Crush Mono Eyeshadows when they launch in July 2019. Creating a shimmery, eye-catching look has never been so effortless.

What started first as a subtle trend now seems to be a full-on movement; famed and fresh-to-market beauty lines alike can't stop putting out products packed with sparkle. And now, it appears that YSL Beauty is the latest luxury brand to jump aboard the sparkle boat, joining the likes of Pat McGrath Labs, Tom Ford, Dior Beauty, and more. But with YSL Beauty's latest launch, it's all about the eyes.

The glamorous new drop is as luxurious as you'd expect, and consists of nine bold new shadows positively packed with shimmering, shiny pigment for an instantly eye-catching look. And this super-concentrated shadow, available this summer on YSL Beauty's site for $30 each, is formulated to provide a rush of color in a single swipe, meaning it's easier than ever to get the kind of glowing, glimmering eyes you'll want this season — because who wants to waste precious time in front of the mirror when you could be out playing in the summer sun?

Plus, the soft, concentrated shadow blends into skin like a dream and promises to stay crease-free all day for radiance that lasts. You can thank the addition of squalane for the shimmery shade's luxurious look and feel, considering it helps prevent the moisture loss that so often leads makeup to appear crinkled, cracked, and settled into fine lines a few hours after application.

The collection's nine shadows will be available in two finishes: Six glitter-infused pigments in shades that range from a neutral brown to a bold blue, and three metallic shades that gild eyes in glamorous shades of purple, black, and silver. And despite their striking shine, these shadow singles are incredibly versatile.


Use your favorite shade alone for an on-trend monochromatic look (the gorgeous "Empowered Silver" shade would be ideal for an icy effect), or blend your favorites together for a multi-dimensional look. "Legendary Gold" would pair well with "Confident Nude" and "Explosive Brown" for a warm, sultry smokey eye. Like just a hint of look-at-me color? Line your lids with "Bold Blue," the collection's oceanic hue that will look electric on the dance floor at summer soirées.

The shades aren't available to shop just yet — so stay tuned to the brand's site to snag the glimmering new drop this July and get in on the shimmery trend in the most glamorous way yet.
