YSL Touche éclat le teint foundation
Okay all you guys who can't be doing with the natural sheer veil foundations. For those who want a full cover flawless finish but don't want the cake then read on.
The latest launch from YSL will give you a medium to full cover however if you use it with a loose fibre brush you can also achieve a light cover. It's a very workable, adaptable foundation depending on the tool you use to apply it with. YSL have launched a swanky new brush to apply it with but of course you don't have to use this to get a great finish.
Water based and pleasingly fluid (not too runny, not too thick)it blends in really easily and doesn't dry off too quick, allowing you to effectively buff it and move it around the face to where you need it.
Once blended it feels velvety matte to the touch but has a soft satin radiance. Not high shine or particularly illuminating..just a natural radiance.
Now for the science...
It contains golden pigment spheres which add a warm radiance to the skin. These provide controlled radiance all day without looking oily.
Seems to work well on both oily and dry skins although if your skin is very dry then you may want a moisturising primer underneath to ensure it feels comfortable throughout the day.
Incredible 22 shades in this line up. We have five shades which are more suited to our skin tones but they do go lighter and darker also. Once applied to the skin the shades seem to appear lighter than they do in the bottle.
The shades are categorised into families of colours. Beige, golden beige and rosy beige. The shades we have all seemed to be quite apricot or peach tones which are particularly good for lifting a dull skin tone or concealing ashy dark circles.
These were shades from the Biege rosy selection (thats's what the BR stands for).
This foundation is available from 1st February 2016 and will be £32.50.
