Maybe you caught that sneak-preview shot of YSL Spring 2015 makeup in yesterday's Google Glass post? Well here's a closer look at the Desir de Jour collection items in that photo. I haven't been able to get them out of my mind -- probably because like a magpie I like shiny things. Look for these beauties at and in January.

Hi, there are sequins all over the lids of these glittery-gorgeous YSL Spring 2015 compacts! Desir de Jour indeed. Pretty, pretty sequins, in iridescent white on one and happy pink on the other.

This twinkly compact is the YSL Spring 2015 Palette Lumiere de Jour Glow Enhancing Pressed Powder. That's black ribbon down the centre of the lid, by the way. As I mentioned earlier, those teensy sequins are iridescent.

The Glow Enhancing Pressed Powder itself is a pink-y pale nude with subtle golden-shimmer undertones. Very pretty.

YSL sequin nail polish! If that black one looks as good on the nails as it does in the bottle... it's YSL La Laque Couture 59 Nuit Noire, by the way. I'm very much looking forward to seeing how it looks on our Manigeek. And YSL La Laque Couture 58 Nuit Blanche -- so lovely in the bottle, right? I suspect it's iridescent micro-paillettes -- fancy words for teeny-weeny sequins -- in a clear base. You can bet Karen will try it over some other colour to see what happens.

This isn't the entire Spring 2015 makeup collection from YSL, actually. Expect two new Blush Volupte shades: 4 Baby Doll, an intense pink, and 6 Passionee, a warm coral. A soft, delicate new brush called Pinceau Volupte Powdered Caress (or something like that -- the French names are a bit of a trick on this side of the pond) is also part of the release. And a lip colour formula called Volupte Tint-in-Oil will make its debut, too. Described as "lip oil infused with colour," Volupte Tint-in-Oil seems to be a blend of pigment and apricot kernel, macadamia seed, coriander fruit, jojoba seed and passion flower oils. I can't wait to try it. Apparently the oils evaporate (or sink in) after application to leave behind a stain. YSL is releasing eight shades of Volupte Tint-in-Oil; shade 5 Cherry My Cherie will be part of the Spring 2015 makeup collection.

Gotta say I love the idea of sequins in January. Our pal and new mum Lindsay Smith ( and feels we'd have to pull the powder compact out a lot to justify its purchase. "If I were still taking the train to work, I'd check my makeup with it at least four times a ride," she says. I say yes, totally! At the very least, that compact's winking beauty could serve as repeat momentary distraction from Mother Nature's icy bitchslap.

Anything here giving you the grabbies?
