YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation
I popped into Debenhams over a month ago now to pick myself up a sample of YSL Touche Eclat Foundation and I was so excited to try it! This foundation comes in 22 shades which is amazing and they are arranged into three categories. There are beige dore shades which are golden, beige rose shades which are rosy/pink and beige shades which are the neutral shades. The shade I have is BR10 (the fairest of them all!) and it matches me perfectly.
I absolutely love this foundation! I have been using it for about 4 weeks now and it has quickly become my everyday foundation. This provides a light coverage which is really lightweight on the skin. It doesn't feel or look like I am wearing foundation and the finish is radiant, glowing and natural. It blends effortlessly and although the coverage is light, it does actually cover up redness and blemishes really well - I hardly need any concealer afterwards. I was surprised at how well this covered up blemishes whilst still having light coverage and looking natural.
The centre of my face can get slightly oily and because this foundation is very dewy I did wonder whether it would be suitable for my skin, but thankfully the staying power is actually pretty good. I powder down the centre of my face only and by the end of the day this foundation is still on all of my face and still providing some coverage, however it could do with being touched up. I don't usually touch up my make up during the day (laziness!) and I can easily get away with not touching this up.
This foundation is available here for £28 - I didn't think that was a bad price for a YSL foundation, and considering the Touche Eclat pen is £25!
Have you tried this foundation? Do you like the sound of it? Let me know!
