YSL Touche Eclat Foundation: Initial Impressions

Wednesday, July 18, 2012
I received this free sample with a Feelunique order last week in the shade BR30 (code for sample: ILOVEYSL). I have used this sample for my foundation for two days now and I still have enough for the next couple of days. The shade does not match my skin tone as it is a bit too dark and I think my shade would be BR10 or BR20. The 'BR' means that the shade is pink toned which is why it is right for me as my skin has pink undertones. 


The application of this foundation is one of the best things about this product! The application is just gorgeous, it glides onto my skin so smoothly and effortlessly. The smooth, silky texture of this product makes it really nice, easy and quick to apply. I have tried applying this foundation with my finger tips (as suggested) and it works fantastically. I have also used this foundation with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (aka. the best foundation brush ever!) and it also works really well with this product. This is one of the very few foundations I have tried that don't streak at all when applied with a foundation brush. Overall, the application is so easy and just amazing! 5/5. 

Results and Finish

This foundation has light to buildable coverage, in my opinion and I do need a bit more coverage but I just use concealer under my eyes and on my minor blemishes. After I have applied this foundation my skin just looks even, fresh, healthy, radiant and luminous without looking greasy at all. The finish of this foundation is gorgeous, it has a satin finish in my opinion and it is not matte and it is not dewy. The gorgeous, skin like finish of this foundation is like nothing I have ever experienced. Overall, this product evens out my skin tone and it makes the texture of my skin look smoother and even. The luminosity created by this foundation makes my skin look very fresh, healthy and radiant without looking oily. The finish of this product is the 'lit from within' finish, in my opinion. Although if you have very oily skin or if you like full coverage foundations this may not be the product for you. 5/5. 


Amazing application. Gorgeous natural, luminous finish. Feels light and comfortable on the skin and it lasts well throughout the day on me (when set with a small amount of pressed powder). I think I am going to have to buy the full size product in the shade BR20 or BR10 soon. Highly recommened.
