Yves Saint Laurent - Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation

Hello Ladies!

Have I got exciting news for you! I was invited to attend a sneak peek of YSL's Touche Éclat foundation yesterday, and my, oh my ladies, am I impressed. YSL's Touche Éclat was launched 20 years ago and with one sold every 10 seconds, it's not hard to see why this foundation has been so highly anticipated! I bought my first Touche Éclat 8 years ago, and it's something that has always had pride of place in my makeup collection, I think most, if not all of us have bought it at least once (or 8 times).

'Le Teint Touche Éclat'

2012 has marked a huge turning point for Yves Saint Laurent, this foundation has been a whopping 10 years in development, and there is already a waiting list of 8,000 people in the UK & Ireland. This is one of the worlds most exciting launches in the beauty community this year. Creative Director of YSL, Llyod Simmons developed the extensive 22 shade range to incorporate all skin tones. The shades are arranged into warm (Beige Dore), cool (Beige Rose) and neutral (Beige) and they range from the palest rose complexions to the deepest golden skins. The bottle has YSL's signature gold cap and was influenced design wise, directly by the Touche Éclat itself, a tribute to the cult beauty product.

As if all that was not enough, I also had the privilege of meeting Fred Letailleur, Internationally renowned make up artist for Yves Saint Laurent. He gave an amazing talk on the foundation, and also a demo to show us the best ways to apply the foundation. It was kind of incredible to see this artist at work and make it all look so effortless. Fear not, I am about to pass these tips on to you...



Fred recommends for a daytime look, to use your fingers, start in the middle of the face and extend outward with long strokes, you need very little of the product when applying with your fingers as you don't want to overload the face with the end result being the dreaded cake effect.

For more coverage or to take the look from day to night, you'll need a brush with fine bristles that is nice and thick.Glide the brush in long movements from the inside of the face out, Another technique is to dab the foundation over the face, this allows you to perfect any areas of concern, the beauty of this technique is you can slowly and progressively build your coverage.

It's not very often I will tell you that you need a product in your life, but if you don't at least try this, you are seriously missing out. The coverage is beautiful, it's not cakey, the staying power is excellent and it really is a unique product, I have a feeling this will be one of THE must have beauty products of the year.

Should you wish to try this amazing product, it's world exclusive to Brown Thomas in Ireland on the 28th June BUT if you visit the YSL counter from June 21st you can receive your complimentary shade match along with a very generous 7 day trial. It retails at €38, and in my opinion, worth every cent and then some!

So that's it for now, I hope you enjoyed!
Let me know your thoughts on this.
Will you be purchasing?

Until next time

    1. It's not what I expected in all honesty... It's better! It's not dewy as such just radiant and literally flawless. I've never had that in a foundation. It's worth it, completely. For a foundation to deliver like this has done is truely fantastic :) xx
