YSL Touche Eclat Foundation First Impressions

Hi girls. As you saw in my last post, I've been to my local beauty counter and picked up the latest YSL Touche Eclat foundation. I wore it for the first time today and thought I'd show you a before and after application picture and a photo after 6 hours wear.

This foundation applies flawlessly and is very light and lovely to apply. It's quite a light coverage but manages to make the skin look fantastic with only a small amount of product.
I only set the foundation with a tiny bit of powder because I wanted to see how well it lasted on it's own. My skin is combination - dry around the forehead and sides of the nose and gradually gets oilier on the cheeks and forehead during the day. As you can see in the last picture, my face seems shinier than it usually does with other foundations, which I'm so unhappy about because this foundation looks so good when you put it on at first!

I'm going to use up my tester and try out a bit more powder to set it to see how that goes.

  6. Oh wow it makes you look so radiant - not that you didn't look great before anyway!

    I really want to try this but my skin produces so much oil that I know it'd just melt off after a couple of hours!

  9. I really wanted to love this foundation but I had the same problem as you, you'd think that for the price they are trying to sell it for they would come up with a separate formula for different skin types, however it does make your skin look lovely when applied.
