YSL Touche Eclat Foundation

When I heard that luxury cosmetics house Yves Saint Laurent were launching a foundation version of their legendary Touche Eclat pen, I was excited to say the least.

However, when I found out that they were providing colour matched samples of the foundation, I dropped everything and approached the YSL counter at Debenhams with all the restraint of an unleashed doberman.

I received a 7 day supply of the foundation, complete with a little application paddle.




I really think this product lives up to the hype - it seems to illuminate the entire face with the same glorious light reflecting technology as the Touche Eclat pen.

With YSL Touche Eclat Foundation (and mascara, no other makeup)

With Foundation - No Flash


I found that shadows were basically erased, spots were disguised, and my face took on a healthy looking, dewy sort of glow.

The formula is quite thin and watery and is gives a light to medium coverage, though I was quite surprised at just how well it covered imperfections, given the liquid consistency.


Price-wise, it's pretty steep at £28, but a worthy investment if you find it's the perfect foundation for you.

The YSL Touche Eclat Foundation is available in 22 shades and launches nationwide from the 9th of this month. Start lining up ladies!

Thanks for reading my ramblings! x

  2. Oh it looks gorgeous on you! I might get a sample, I didn't think it'd be enough coverage for me but with concealer I might be able to make it work!

    1. I had a pretty nasty blemish on my chin, and it covered it pretty well, but a bit of concealer never goes astray ;) Definitely recommend you try it out x

    1. good point! sorry I didn't add that in! I wore it to work yesterday and it had barely budged after 9 hours. However, I did notice it got a little 'tacky' to the touch after a while, which is fine in this weather, but might get a bit shiny in hot weather, if that makes sense xx
