YSL Arty Stone Collection Heralds the Return of Color

The Makeup Talk forums are abuzz with the new collection from Yves Saint Laurent, named for -- and inspired by -- their line of very popular statement rings.

What excited me about the line, however, is the promise that we might finally escape the doldrums of the endless neutral trend. Much as I love neutrals -- they do look beautiful and natural and "your face but better" -- I really miss bright purples and and greens and more daring, fun colors.

While pretty colors are to spring makeup what florals are to spring fashion (ie. everywhere on the runway, nowhere on the street), I do think that this last holdout of '80s/'90s revival might finally start penetrating the public consciousness and we can take a quick step back from our Urban Decay Naked 9 (or whatever number we're on) palettes and add a touch of lime green for a change.

What do you think? Are you ready for a change, or would you still rather stick to browns and taupes?
