I’ve been a bit YSL crazy lately, I’m really loving the products I’ve been trying. I picked up a sample of the Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation a few weeks ago, and before I even finished the sample I purchased the full size. I had a £10 off code for feelunique.com (which is now expired) so I managed to save some money. I really recommend looking into discount codes before purchasing online, I’m one of those people that hates paying full price! so even if I’m saving 10% it’s still money saved. Onto the foundation..
I really love using this foundation on days that I want my make up to look natural. I would say the coverage is light-medium and is certainly buildable, which is great for my problem areas like around my nose and cheeks. The thing I like most about this foundation is that even after layering it on certain areas it still doesn’t cake up. It looks so natural on the skin whilst still giving coverage. It’s a dewy finish and as I have slightly oily skin, I set it with my Rimmel Stay Matte to make sure I stay oil free. I find I’ll need to touch up with powder after about 6 hours which I expected with a dewy foundation. I get a whole day (10-12 hours) wear before I start to see it fade in certain areas. Another bonus is that this foundation hasn’t broken me out, which I find so many foundations do.
There are 3 different colour ranges for this foundation, B for Beige or Neutral, BR for Beige Rose (pink undertones), and BD for Beige Dore (yellow undertones). I got matched with the shade BD40 at the counter and I found it matched me perfectly, which surprised me as I’m an NW in MAC (pink undertones).
The formula is light and fairly thin (but not watery) and really moisturising on the skin. I have tried applying it in various different ways including with beauty blenders, my fingers and different type brushes from MAC, Sigma and Real Techniques. Out of all of those I found the best way to apply this is with my fingers for when I want the lightest coverage, or with my Sigma F82 on days I want extra coverage. The packaging is also super cute as its so sleek with the gold, I really have a thing for YSL packaging.
Overall I’m really happy with this foundation, especially now it’s summer and I wanted something lightweight for daily wear. What’s your favourite summer foundation?
