YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation Review

YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation had to be the most anticipated launch of 2012. All the magic and benefits of the iconic Touch Éclat Highlighter popped into a foundation. Of course I had to try it!

What YSL say

The light of Touche Éclat foundation targets shadowy areas and highlights the contours of the face. With no opaque powders, its perfecting texture evens the complexion and helps conceal your imperfections, while enhancing your skin’s natural beauty.

Promising to be an illuminating foundation with dimensional radiance all in a weightless foundation - a tall order?

My thoughts 

I was sent Shade BD20 which is perfect for my light-medium yellow toned skin

I am not going to beat about the bush here, this is my Summer foundation. I must admit to being a little concerned that this was a light to medium coverage foundation but as it is buildable I find that it is fine and doesn't look too heavy when I apply more to any areas I may need it.

It covers my redness, it covers my pores well and the odd hormonal spot. I haven't actually had to use a separate concealer yet.. it provides beautiful, even coverage and leaves the skin looking radiant and bright with absolutely no cakiness.

I have worn Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation with and without a primer and find that it looks equally good both ways, if anything I prefer it without! Duration wise I get between 6-7 hours before I get a shiny t-zone but this is fine for most activities.


BD20 blended

I really like the gel textured formula, the foundation blends so well that it is seamless and literally melts into the skin to leave a very natural finish. I have to mention the comment that my mother in law made.. she saw me wearing just this foundation and told me that I had such good skin. Now doesn't that make this bottle worth investing in?

  1. Oooh. I thought I would never leave Estee Lauder but now I'm tempted.... :)

    1. Oh Carol, go see if you can get a sample and let me know what you think!

  2. I love the way it blends into the skin and it reassures me that you had similar concerns about the level of coverage initially. Looks like it leaves a smooth and silky finish - I like it!


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
