YSL Touche Eclat Foundation | Review

I'm kinda' late on the bandwagon with trying this foundation! A lot of people seem to rave about it so recently I finally got round trying it! YSL Touché Eclat foundation is described as a weightless illuminating formula, it evens out completion while enhancing skins natural beauty… sounds good right?

I have normal to dry skin and a dewy finish is my preferred choice when it comes to foundation. YSL Touché Eclat provides a dewy natural finish, it really gives a glow to the skin and has no shimmer to it at all. I have the shade B40. BR (Beige Rose) is for cool/pink undertones, BD (Beige Dore) is for warm golden undertones and B (beige) for neutral/beige undertones. The formula is very thin but not watery, almost like a gel/liquid. It's very blendable and provides light to medium coverage, one pump will give you more of a sheer coverage and two pumps will give you a medium. I like medium to full coverage and with two pumps and a little concealer I am happy with the coverage this foundation gives. I have been using my Real Techniques buffing brush which works great! The lasting power isn't the greatest compared to other foundations, I'd say it lasts around 7 hours on the skin. The packaging is beautiful! With a glass bottle, gold lid and a pump! One thing I don't love about this foundation is the floral scent, although it isn't horrible, it is a bit strong and I prefer foundations that are not as heavily scented.

Light/medium coverage
Dewy finish
Natural looking

Lasting power
Floral scented

Overall I think this is a really nice foundation. If you have normal, dry or dehydrated skin and like a dewy light/medium coverage i recommend this foundation! I wouldn't recommend it to oily skin though as I don't think it would last very long and it does have a dewy finish, slightly oily skins may be able to get away with it!

Have you tried this foundation?



  1. I love this foundation, I've just started using it and I'd say it's definitely a medium coverage on me. I have dry skin and it feels so amazing on my skin. Great review!

  6. Ive been looking at this foundation for a while now, but Ive got combination skin, so a bit worried if it would work for me, especially round the t-zone. But great post.
