Good morning everyone!
Today I will be reviewing another YSL product.
I have heard a lot about this foundation and couldn’t wait to try it out for myself!
Available in 22 shades.
My sample is B50 Honey
What it is:
A bestselling foundation, now in an advanced formula, that reduces the look of fatigue and creates flawless coverage.
What it does:
Touche Éclat Le Teint Radiance Awakening Foundation is enriched with stimulating Ruscus Extract, an anti-fatigue formula that energizes skin by stimulating micro-circulation and targeting dullness to instantly improve the look your skin’s brightness and luminosity, while the Vitamin E protects against free radicals. Formulated with SPF 22 to provide sun protection, it leaves a weightless finish while offering eight hours of a refreshed, radiant look.
This foundation sounds like a miracle in a bottle!
Who wouldn’t want a product that can reduce the look of fatigue and gives flawless coverage??
Right off the bat, I was worried about the color of this foundation because it looked so dark. But it was actually a pretty good match.
First thing I checked for was an added fragrance.
This does have a subtle floral scent, but dissipates quickly.
The formula is thinner but not runny or too watery.
I choose to apply this with my fingers to get the maximum amount of coverage I could since it’s thinner.
This is extremely easy to blend out and work with!
Right away I noticed it looks natural (like skin) yet has pretty good coverage (light-medium). It also gives an air brushed look to the skin.
I didn’t noticed it settling into my fine lines or pores and didn’t seem to overly accentuate dry patches.
It dries down to a powder finish so I only added powder to my t-zone.
It just didn’t hold up on me. It says it will offer 8 hours of radiance (which it does), but my makeup was getting really oily and started breaking down before that.
When I used a really good primer underneath this foundation, it immediately solved this problem.
I really love this foundation. By the end of a normal day, my skin looks just as tired as I’m feeling. All I want to do is remove all my makeup and hop into bed.
Somehow, this foundation made my skin look like I had a perfect night’s sleep and stayed looking that way ALL day.
It didn’t do much for oil control or have a long wear, but a really amazing primer fixed all that.
If it weren’t for the high price point, I would run out and buy this right now! I think I’ll ultimately end up purchasing a full size when my sample runs out, but it’ll hurt my wallet a little! 😦
Have you tried this? What did you think?
Wishing you all a beautiful and wonderful day!
