The spotlight is on: Le Taint Touche Éclat Foundation by YSL

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation

I have to admit, I was sceptical, to say the least, when I was buying this foundation. I have heard great things but as you may know already anything too luminous makes me look like a big grease ball very quickly – never a good look.

But curiosity took the better of me and I bought it. I’ve been wearing it for a good while now, have tested it with and without primers, for day wear and in the evening and…. I LOVE IT!!!! I have to say it is becoming a little bit of a favourite of mine and I have rarely used my other staples.

The foundation is a very liquid consistency and has a light texture, which I really like. The coverage is light to medium and you can build it a little bit. It has an SPF 19, which is amazing for every day but you might get a bit of flashback when you are photographed in the evening. Having said that I used it a couple of times on a night out and it looked fine in most photos. It is best applied with a flat foundation brush or fingers for a natural finish.

Another fantastic thing about this foundation is the finish it gives. It is an illuminating foundation and leaves you with the most amazing, healthy looking skin. It doesn’t contain any glittery particles in it so you will not end up with a  disco ball face, which is unfortunately what a lot of illuminating foundations do.

The foundation is on the pricy side at €38 but well worth every penny and I will be including the range in my professional kit. Added bonus – beautiful packaging!!!
