ysl touche éclat foundation

YSL Touche Éclat foundation: £28*

You've probably seen so much coverage of this product in the recent months, but here are my two cents to add to the pile anyway! The cult favourite Touche Éclat highlighting pen celebrated its 20th birthday this year and the fashion house finally got their act together and created a foundation to go with it. With 22 shades in three families (B for natural beige, BD for golden beige and BR for rosy beiges) most people shouldn't have a problem trying it out!

I've seen a few bloggers say that they wanted to like this foundation and really did like it at first but it's broke them out and so on. Personally I've had absolutely no problems with it and I've been using it for a couple of months now. I do normally wear a translucent powder over the top of my foundation to avoid transferring and so my powder blush/bronzer applies better, but here I'm just wearing a cream blush over the top so you can see the natural finish. It is very dewy without feeling heavy or cakey on the skin which I love. Plus my powder doesn't take all of that away which is great. Another thing I adore about this foundation is the packaging - so sleek and luxe, so perfect!

Do you like the look of this foundation or have you tried it already? Are you a fan of YSL as a beauty brand?

  2. You look amazing with that foundation! It gives you such a healthy dewy glow! But is it as good as the touché éclat is the real question??? Xxx

    1. I actually like it better considering what I really need under my eyes is coverage, so the pen is a finishing step :)

  7. I really love this foundation, but I do think it is overpriced. There is cheaper foundations that work better. Your skin looks amazing though!

  12. I've only used this a couple of times, and bar the SA giving me a shade darker than I need, LOVE the consistency! Slightly worried about the break out factor, but think I'm gunna take the plunge anyway!

    1. I am the lightest in most places and I tried the BD40 as I have really red pigmented skin so didn't want a pink base and it really covers and matches well x

  20. It looks lovely on your skin, naturally dewy. I wish it looked like that on me! I tried it but it makes my skin look so greasey, I have dry combination skin. I like to keep powder to a minimum that's why mac studio fix fluid is still my Fav! X

  21. Also which shade are you using? X

  24. I love this foundation! I did think that it was breaking me out, but I have been wearing it again the last 2 weeks with no problem at all.. so it was probably something else!

  26. When I'm paid and when I run out of my Chanel Vita Lumiere, I plan to buy this.
    However is it possible it is TOO DEWY? I feel this way when I use a lot of my vita lumiere and it looks so shiny on skin of other bloggers that have reviewed so I'm worried
    and also,
    Does it blend easily? I find the Vita Lumiere sticks to oily sections of my face rather than spreading evenly

    Thankyou!

    1. I don't have oily skin so I can't help you there I'm afraid :( it possibly would be too dewy as I have drier skin so it's glowy on me already. You can get little sample pots to see for yourself though :)
