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.



  1. Great post! This is actually my favourite foundation, no matter what I try I always come back to this, it feels so soft on the skin.

  2. I still have my old formula, so might work through that, but love the whole YSL range.

  3. Hi Nic & Sam, I used the old version and liked it but it needed a better blend for the skin finish. This looks fab for glowing skin so, I'm pretty sure I will be on it when it comes out. Thanks guys!

  4. Thanks for the helpful!!

  5. Is this replacing the Touche Eclat foundation that they already do or sitting alongside? I hope they're not replacing it with a full cover.

  6. This looks perfect for me! I love full coverage foundations, I'm currently using MAC's Studio Sculpt but when I finish it I might have to give this a try. Wayne Goss used it in one of his videos recently and it looked lovely on the skin, too!

    : Looks nice. I want to buy this. how much price, please reply me ?

  8. I loved the original formula, but, sad that I didn't a good color match for me. New formula looks promising too but it seems shade match will still be an issue as the colors are lighter than the bottles! :-(

  9. Great foundation! Love it!!
