Eye shadow addicts, best not to get into a 12-step rehab program until July. You'll only set yourself back when the new YSL Couture Palette 2014 collection launches this June. Designed as a tribute to the famous Mondrian dress designer Yves Saint Laurent created in 1965, the range includes 11 colourways and textures including matte, satin, pearl and metallic.
