YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation

Hello all you lovely people. 
Sharing the love today...
Aaaah you know when you fall head OWA heels and have the butterflies, the excitement and the overwhelming sense of contentment? Well I have all of those things right this second. 
For.A.Foundation. 
 Actually in all fairness I have a lot of love for a lot of foundations (fickle). Which one I go to depends entirely on my fettle (fickle AND flighty). At the moment I have a few on rotation... Benefit, Laura Geller, Perricone and Bourjois to name drop a few. 
BUT
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation has been a favourite a good few months now and since Autumn kicked in with it's winter-esque temperatures I've found myself reaching for this more often.
I'm putting it down to the rosy undertones brightening my complexion.


This is radiance in a perfectly packaged bottle. BELIEVE.

It blends in effortlessly and feels weightless on the skin. My skin isn't perfect by any stretch but this gives as close to a flawless finish as I've had and that's before the concealer and powder come out to play!
Oh and it has a pump too so none of this spatula or pouring out nonsense that seem to dominate 'posher' brands. 

I have the shade BR10 which is a pinky toned porcelain. For me this works beautifully as I'm paler than your average polar bear and my skin tone isn't what you'd describe as warm. Think Snow White or an Ice Queen and you're on the right track.
 (Hoying myself a few compliments in there... got to love yourself before anyone else will love you n all that!) 

I'd say this is medium coverage, it's certainly not heavy or cakey but it offers more perfection than say a tinted moisturiser or BB cream. 
The finish is dewy, luminous and perfecting.
J'adore


The picture above is me (hiya) wearing the Teint Touche Eclat Foundation, I've swept on a bit of blusher and MAC Soft and Gentle on my cheek bones. No concealer or powder so you can see the how magic it is. 
 A laaaaaverleeee finish don't you agree.

The obvious draw back of this is the price tag, you can get this at Boots for £29 so it's definitely a high end sort of affair. I was lucky and got mine through Miss Make Magpie's (legendary) blog sale. I'll certainly be re-purchasing.
A little goes along way though I tend to use more if I'm being all profesh and applying with a brush. Maybe I'm doing something wrong!!

Have you tried this? Have I tempted you? What foundation makes your Holy Grail status?

Love

  8. Hi Kate! I had this foundation in BR20 and loved it, it was the perfect foundation for when I didn't need the heavy coverage of Estee Lauder Double Wear. And then I dropped it on our (stone) floor! Quelle horreur :( It smashed into smithereens then one of my cats came and pathered right through it putting foundation paw prints everywhere!!

    I have repurchased tho hell yeah!

  9. I've never tried YSL foundations before but this one sounds pretty good, and as I am about to run out of my Chanel Perfection Lumiere, I'll maybe have to give this one a try. I wonder if I could get a sample

  10. I have read so many great reviews about this foundation but the only thing that puts me off is the price tag. It looks great on you though so I may have to give it a try x

    1. Aaah it is a bit hefty! Bourjois healthy mix is a fairly decent dupe :) xxx
