The YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint has got to be one of my top three foundations; I love the way it wears, the finish it has and the look/feel of it on the skin.
YSL are relaunching a new and improved Touche Eclat Le Teint on the 1st February and I am happy to report that it’s possibly even better than the original Touche Eclat foundation. It’s really beautiful on the skin, I hate heavy foundations so this is the perfect light weight foundation with a natural slightly dewy finish.
However I do have a slight problem.
Sadly just like MAC and Bourjois there is something in this foundation that breaks me out and causes quite painful acne so I have to resist temptation and stay away from this foundation. However I still wanted to let you all know how amazing it is as I know I know not everyone has the same reaction as me and it’s a great one to consider for anyone that doesn’t have sensitive skin.
The title of this post might be a little confusing, YSL Touche Eclat is one of my all time favourite foundations, probably top 3 but it breaks me out so I have to resist the temptation to go near it.
This might seem like a strange post since it does break me out but I think it’s a great foundation especially for someone whose skin isn’t as sensitive as mine and I wouldn’t want people to miss out just because it breaks me out as I know lots of girls who haven’t had any problems with this foundation.
I will admit that I do occasionally still reach for this but the repercussions is usually not worth it. When I do I insure I use a primer to create a barrier between my skin and the foundation as well as cleansing really well as soon as I get home. I love this foundation so much that occasionally I just can’t help myself. If you’re a little unsure if you’ll breakout then I would highly recommend you pop into store and ask for a sample or just ask them to apply it and wear it for the day before purchasing.
There are 22 shades so they do have most skin tones covered and I have been wearing B30.
