Much has been written about the new YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation with the general consensus being it is the best foundation in the history of foundations.
But how does the YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat fare on dark skins? Before I commit to a new foundation I like to get a free sample from the counter and try it out for a week. When the shop assistant expertly applies it, it generally looks good but I like to see how it works out when it’s just me, the tube and my mirror.
YSL are quite generous as you get what could be up to two weeks supply depending on how heavy you like to wear your foundation.
I applied it (with my fingers) one morning and at first look, it gave good coverage but didn’t seem any different from any other foundation. I forgot about it until later in the day when I caught myself in the passenger mirror of my car. I noticed my skin looked better so took out a mirror to have a good look.
Aided by the fact it was sunny yesterday, my skin looked luminous, glowy, dewy – all those buzz words people use when describing good foundation. After that I couldn’t help but look at myself in every mirror I passed and my skin really did look young and fresh.
I don’t think YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat is for you if you have problem skin, it gives light to medium coverage so if you have pigmentation marks or severe acne, you might need to use concealer and some finishing powder for a fuller finish. If your skin is generally in good condition and you like that fresh, glowing look, then Le Tient Touche Éclat is perfect.
I’m a medium to dark chocolate brown (think Tika Sumpter brown) and I needed the darkest shade (B90) YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat comes in so if you are a darker brown, make sure you try before you buy.
