Now I have the foundation, thought I'd update this review with some photos :)
Color is in B40. Which looks quite dark in the bottle.
Lol kind of pointless to get a picture of the printings on the bottle since I can't even read the thing in person anyway haha.
So today I have an exciting review for you guys ^_^ By the title you guys all know it's the new YSL foundation-- Le Teint Touche Eclat!
I don't have the full size item yet so I'm putting up this pic from Sephora. But I am sure I will be purchasing this foundation ^_______^ the MUA at Sephora was very generous and gave me a huge sample, so I've been using it for everyday for the last 2 weeks. Still have a lot left =D (I only use a very small amount each time). Since this is a very expensive foundation, I'm gonna wait until there's some kind of promotion/sale at Sephora =D
Before I go into the review, I just wanted to let you guys know when I found out about the launch of the Touche Eclat foundation, I honestly didn't really care about it at all (that's why it took me weeks before I even remember to swatch it in store XD). I genuinely wasn't the slightest interested in this foundation, simply because I do not like the Touche Eclat Radiant Touch pen at all (you might notice I have that on my blog sale... yep. Did not care for it. Used it like 5 times tops).
Why didn't I care for the Touche Eclat Radiant Touch? Because it just doesn't sit well on my face. Every time I wear it I feel like it just sits on top of my face and doesn't meld into my skin. And it always settles into my expression lines. So when I heard "For the first time, the magic light of Touche Éclat is in a foundation" I was like "Meh! Whatevs" XD
So when I finally swatched it at Sephora (the only reason why I remembered to swatch it was because it was sitting right at the front of the store XD) I was very pleasantly surprised. The texture is completely different from the Radiant Touch
My color is Beige 40 (which is neutrally toned). It's a tad light for me so I'm looking to try other shades. But I might just stick with this shade-- nothing a little bit of bronzer can't fix =D
*** Dear friends, lately I've been noticing B40 actually looks a bit red on me... it's not too bad but I can see a difference between my face and neck. No idea why I didn't notice until now I'm already half way through the bottle =_= I will have to rematch myself. But for now I would suggest B30 would probably will be a better match (based on the YSL Youth Liberator shade that I matched myself more recently-- that foundation have the same shade range as Touche Eclat if I'm not mistaken). Updated 9/19/14
So I asked for a sample =D And man, now I'm kind of hooked to this foundation O_O Why am I so sure that I'm gonna be purchasing this foundation? Because I look forward to using it every morning =DDDDD <3 br="">
Now let's see the product in action =D
Yeah woke up one day face was so red =_=
Half side of the face applied with YSL =D
Love love love the radiance and glow it gives >_< absolutely love!!
The foundation is very thin and lightweight, but definitely has enough coverage to even out skin tone and cover blackheads.
Full face applied (used Sigma flat top synthetic kabuki brush)
Compared to the Dior Nude foundation, this one definitely feels lighter (but then again I use less YSL compared to Dior? So with that said YSL might actually have more coverage? Not sure cuz first impression was YSL has less coverage). In my opinion, this foundation is an even "nuder" foundation than Dior. Looks really really natural :)
Full face effect. Sorry about the hair in my face, didn't notice it when I took the pics... yes annoying I know lol.
Aside from the gorgeous finish it gives, what really sells me to this foundation is the wear. It wears so well on my skin, with or without powder. Amazing!
So this was applied on another day.
This was 4 hours after. You can see a bit of shine on the nose but it still looks dewy rather than oily.
And after 8 hours
Yep aside from the obvious shine on my nose where I get super oily, the foundation remained on my face without moving =D by the way I did not set the foundation with powder in these pics. I feel like this foundation melds into your skin even more when you get oily =D And please bare in mind I took this last pic directly under a light source to get a detailed photography, so it does make my face appear very shiny, in person it actually doesn't even look that shiny ^_~
So in conclusion, I'm in love with this foundation! Cannot wait for the day when I get my hands on the full size bottle. For now, this has definitely become my Holy Grail for a dewy finish foundation =D I don't have product demo videos for now but don't worry! Will definitely feature this foundation in future videos =)
By the way, just wanted to quickly throw my thoughts on the comparison between YSL Touche Eclat foundation and Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation: the initial finishes are similar-- both foundations give really nice and glowy finish. However, the YSL definitely sits better on my combination skin. I'd say if you have dry/normal skin you can probably go for Bourjois. But to me the two foundations are very different.
That's all I have! Hope you guys found this review helpful ^_^
Have a great week guys!
