Luma vs Saturation curves

The recent updates to Premiere Pro added a series of curves that I find incredibly useful for color grading and they are so intuitive I think they would help a ton for people who do a lot of HSL and Split toning in lightroom.
The Hue Saturation curves, especially the Luma vs Saturation curve is a very quick way to pull colors out of your brightest highlights and darkest shadows. This method of saturation control is fast and super easy and I would love to see these curves in Lightroom.

Yes, we've been begging Adobe for more than a decade to add these curve tools to both Lr and Ps, but they're uninterested in implementing.

Yeah, I realized this after I posted, I'm just so frustrated with it. I've been putting images in a 5K FF RED timeline and desaturating the highlights and shadows in Premiere for certain images I've thrown on Instagram.

well, for now if you'd like to apply a similar correction in Lr/ACR, you can use the range selection tools to desat specific luma ranges.
