Yves Saint Laurent Beauté breaks all the beauty rules with a stunning collection of coloured mascaras and liners that dares you to try something different

If you're the kind of girl that automatically reaches out for your black mascara and liner as your fail-safe beauty look, it's time to dip your toe in an altogether different pool. Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Beauté introduces a stunning selection of Mascara Vinyl Couture in nine sumptuous, impossibly vibrant colours, ranging from pink to a beautiful bright blue. There's even a glittering gold and a shimmery silver that make great top coats over your solid coloured mascara. These mascaras come in a soft and supple lacquer-like finish. The fluid texture coats the lashes evenly, giving them ultra-smooth volume. Best of all these babies get you a second look. We tried the shade 'I'm the trouble' and got instant compliments, both on the elongating effect on our lashes and on the unusual hue.

Also part of the collection, are 'supporting' products like brow makeup and eyeliners to complement these mascaras and help you achieve the sultry eyes of your dreams. Here are five of our favourite looks featuring the different mascara shades. These certainly put your conventional eye makeup pairings to shame. These under 30-second videos are super quick and straightforward, and best of all, tell you all the YSL Beauté products used to attain them. Love!

I'm the crazy

I'm the trouble

I'm the madness

I'm the unpredictable

I'm the fire


The mascaras are $55 each. Available in July at Yves Saint Laurent Beauté counters and stores
