YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation - Review


I know the lovely Sue guest posted about this foundation and also shared the background
on why and how this foundation came to be here - link but I thought as we all have different opinions
and experiences not to mention reviewing styles that one more post thrown in the mix wouldn't hurt!


This is actually my third bottle of YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation I was gifted a shade
that was far too dark for my skin tone and then I blindly ordered a shade from The House of Fraser
which in reality was too light so with shade BD50 it really has been third time lucky!
BD50 is a great match for skin tones around the MAC NC35-37 mark and it has a lovely golden undertone.
However YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation boasts a variety of 22 shades so I'm pretty
sure that there is a shade for pretty much every skin tone out there!


There is not much I can really say about the packaging other than that it is classic and not at all gaudy with golden accents, a swish glass bottle that allows you to be watchful of your usage levels and unlike some brands of foundation this comes with a built in pump making dispensing the product a breeze.
Trufully I do not recommend travelling with any glass bottles as lady luck isn't always kind and a handbag or
suitcase with foundation stained contents is less than appealing!

As always I have used my mole as a coverage reference and as you can see it has
all but disappeared

The texture of the YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation is thick for a liquid based foundation
but not so much that it doesn't spread or blend with ease.
It covers without masking and gives a natural yet high coverage finish while feeling weightless on the skin, if you prefer something a little lighter in terms of coverage a damp brush will come in handy!
In my opinion this works best buffed into the skin using a brush of some sort, my preference being a flat top
kabuki but it is easy enough to apply with the fingertips if that is your preferred method.
As you may know by now I have oily skin with old acne scars so I do look for both problems to be catered
to when it comes to any base. 
Luckily YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation covers and conceals my red scarring and presents no problems for my oily skin but I do recommend using a primer before application and a light dusting of powder to set and prolong the wear as would with any foundation.
In terms of wear this lasts a full 10 hours on my face with ease and as an avid wearing of white clothing,
I have to commend it for not staining my clothes as others have!

Have you tried YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation, what are your thoughts?

YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation is available from most YSL beauty counters
and The House of Fraser - link  £28/30ml

  8. I got this last week and got matched to BD40 even though in mac I'm a NC20, but it's a perfect match! So strange, definately recommend to those interested in it to get matched at a counter first. In saying that its a lovely foundation and looks so natural on. Makes my skin look do healthy too :) x

  9. Heyy, this is a wonderful review :) I have oily combination skin and i feel that finding foundations that doesn't make me look greasy within a few hours of applying is quite tricky. I thought this would foundation would promote dewyness and hence oil excess sebum production. I use the Lancome teint idole ultra 24/7 at the moment which i find it to be very good at oil control. Have you tried it? and if you have how does it compare with this YSL one :) Thanks for reviewing btw, it was very helpful xxx

    1. Hi :) trust me I know your pain only too well! Are you looking for a more matte finish? If so I highly recommend Clarins Ever Matte or if you are looking for a natural finish Clinique's Oil Free foundation is great! I sadly haven't tried the Lancome one to compare but what I can say is that as an oily skinned lady the YSL version does not promote any excess sebum :)

  10. I am DYING to try this foundation, but after reading the guest post on your blog and trying in vain to find a local YSL, i only realized.... there's isn't one! *le gasp in horror* I am reluctant to order it online because I have no idea which shade will match my skin tone. T__T

  12. I went to get a sample of this and of corse they was out of samples in my shade so naturally I bought the whole bottle lol. I really like the way it feels lightweight on my skin (this could just be in comparison to my existing foundations though). I think I could do with a matter primer though as I have oily-combo skin and got a little shiny around the 5/6 hour mark xx

    1. Haha I hate when that happens but go you for biting the bullet :)
      yes I have to wear a primer under this and practically all foundations
      or I have the dreaded slip and slide effect haha :)

  13. I've been using Bourjois healthy mix for ages and it just wan't cutting it s when my mum offered to treat me to a nice foundation I jumped at the chance and got clinique super balance. I absolutely love it but a little part of me wishes I'd tried this one. I'm a sucker for the YSL packaging!

  16. I am 36 with combination skin that occasionally breaks out, so I was looking for something that moisturizes without adding a bunch of extra oil. My wife (who is SO beautiful and also has combination skin) recommended the Lady Soma Renew Serum that she uses. This really works! My skin is feeling and looking better. I am so satisfied that I have recommended it to family and friends, something I rarely do. My wife always gets mistaken for someone who is at least 10 years younger than she really is. I imagine that is due to her taking good care of her skin and good genetics, but I must say that I think the hyaluronic acid in the Lady Soma Renew Serum helps to keep her (and me) moisturized and to keep the fine lines at bay.

  17. I am trying it for the second time.

    It is abit weird touching with my face and there is a sticky feeling.
