Wildly Gold it the rather apt name for the festive range, which features three utterly gorgeous limited edition products.

The YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres glossy lipstains are already one of our favourite lip products out there due to their vibrant colour payoff, longlasting wear and flattering, plumping finish.

Now, the beautiful Rouge Laqué shade (€35), a classic bright-red, has been repackaged in a fabulous gold case. Can you imagine anything more Christmassy?!

Another classic product - the Touche Éclat pen (€35) - has also been repackaged in a very glamourous black and gold leopard print casing. The shade, No1 Luminous Radiance - is perfect for brightening up the inner eyes and highlighting the tops of cheekbones for a subtle but perfecting finish.

Star of the collection has to be the Palette Collector (€85) amazing edit of eyeshadows, blush, lipsticks and brush applicators in a stylish black leather case. 

For eyes there is a sparkly black, iridescent bronze, shimmery gold and a silver highlighter to create a variety of looks, for cheeks a fresh, delicate pink blush to add a pop of colour and for lips one glossy pink sheer lipstick and one satin finish fuchsia shade. This is an ultra-covetable piece that would be sure to delight any makeup lover this Christmas!

The Yves Saint Laurent Wildly Gold Christmas Collection is available from November 5, 2014.
