Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation* £28

"Illuminating foundation, dimensional radiance, weightless perfection."

It is unbelievable to think that it was over twenty years ago that YSL launched Touche Eclat - the wonder product of the 90s that has led to cult-status and global adoration. With a quick click and a slick, Touche Eclat gives an illuminating result by enhancing the complexion with light. Twenty years on and YSL have transposed all the magic of that golden wand and channeled it into their newest foundation - Le Teint Touche Eclat. It has a unique formula that targets shadowy areas and defines contours. The foundation is free of opaque powders that tend to mask the face and create a diffused reflection, therefore giving you a light, weightless fluid that illuminates the face with a natural radiance. "A magic light infused within a weightless fluid." Instead of opaque powders, the clever ones at YSL have created a soft focus gel which forms a diffusing and translucent film on the skin, smoothing away imperfections without masking the purity of the skin.

Le Teint Touche Eclat comes in 22 different shades to hopefully suit all skin tones. They are divided up into three unique categories to help you find your perfect shade; rose, beige and gold. I was unsure what colour would be right for me so I punted for B30 and B40 and I have to say B40 is almost perfect for my NC25-30 skin tone. The formula is silky and blends easily onto the skin. It feels extremely light whilst still giving a good, medium coverage which could be built up if required. I love the translucent, silky nature of this foundation - it feels like it is complimenting not concealing the skin and the finish is a happy medium between matte and dewy. It does seem to give the complexion a healthy, brightening glow whilst evening out inconsistent skin tone. All in all, a very nice foundation if you are after a light texture with an illuminating finish. The packaging for the full-sized bottle is a lot more glamorous than the samples with YSL's iconic gold lid and lettering that screams luxury and finesse, along with a sleek pump dispenser.

Le Teint Touche Eclat launches exclusively in Brown Thomas and Selfridges on 28th June and then nationwide on 9th July. The foundation retails at £28 and if you are feeling really flush then you can get the accompanying YSL foundation brush for a cool £26!

Do you think this could be the new cult product from Yves Saint Laurent?

I've been so excited for this foundation since they annunced it on their fb page. I'm hoping this will replace my Chanel Vital Lumiere Aqua as my fav foundation. Can't wait to try it :) x

This sounds a lot like the Lancome Teint Miracle and I absolutely love that one! And I have quite oily skin.
