YSL Le Teinte Touche Éclat – Illuminating Foundation

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat

Some of you may have seen me appearing here there and everywhere in a little Youtube commercial for YSL’s Teinte Touche Éclat. I’ve got the full-length version of my “section” embedded below should you want to watch it! Did anyone try the foundation when they were doing the free trials? I really like it – it’s light and healthy-looking, which is exactly what I usually look for. The colour range is pretty good, too. It’s a bit hot for foundation at the moment (I like to wear as little as possible on my skin when the weather turns saucy), but I’ll most definitely be cracking this out in the autumn!

Le Teinte Touche Éclat is £28 with free delivery from FeelUnique.com. I use shade B30, for those who need a guide. To be honest, I’d be tempted to pop to a counter and try a few before buying, just to get it right. There’s a lot of choice!

    Hey Ruth, in the video it says you used shade B20. Are you using the B30 now because of tanning?

      I think that they got that wrong. I definitely have B30! The B20 was beautiful but just on the pale side x

    I love the street scene with the leather jacket. Super rock and roll yet glam!

    ahh I have been thinking about this for ages but now I don’t know if I would rather opt for a Burberry foundation…

    I really love the ysl foundation too. I’ve had 3 positive comments whilst wearing so it must be good.

    I got a sample of it from sephora in beige rose 40. I love it. As Ruth said, it’s easy to blend with fingers. I even tried it with a stippling brush and it still blended well! Bit expensive but I don’t use much at all. It will last a long while.
