FOTD with YSL Touche Eclat Foundation

YSL's new Touche Eclat foundation lands in stores in July, and given the almost fanatical following that the original highlighting pen has gathered over the years, it's set to be a big launch.  At £28, it's very definitely a high end foundation - but it does make some rather high end claims too, including a weightless texture, brightening properties, and a lightweight, natural finish.

Does it deliver?  I think so.  I'm wearing it in the FOTD above, and I've found it to be incredibly brightening, making my skin look awake and glowing without leaving it dewy or shiny.  The texture is indeed lightweight, and the finish is natural.  It's also totally buildable, and you can apply a tiny bit for a bit of a kick in the morning, or a full face of the stuff for a smooth, even, glowing finish.  It doesn't really cover blemishes, so if you want more of a medium/opaque coverage product, this one probably isn't for you.

I'm wearing shade B10, the palest neutral shade available.  There are 22 shades available, covering warm, neutral and cool undertones, and it looks like the shade range is wide enough to match the palest to the deepest of skintones.  Lovely stuff.

  1. Sounds promising and it looks great on you! x

  2. You look absolutely beautiful and your skin is so natural with that foundation. I think I will have to try it out so sure. I love that lipstick too. I've just had a pay rise so I might just treat myself to an expensive lippy.

  3. You look fab. I'll be checking out this foundation when it launches at my local John Lewis concession.

    I have Primrose Hill lipstick and it doesn't look half as great on me!
