Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation: The Review

I’m a sucker for a new foundation. They are hands-down my makeup weakness. When my Mum started planning her wedding earlier this year I immediately began searching for a new foundation that could live up to the challenge of a million cheek kisses, countless photos and all day partying.

My Mum and I decided to go ahead and do our own makeup for the wedding as we both felt confident enough in our combined beauty knowledge to pull off a good job, so we decided initially that a makeup shopping trip was in order. Our first stop on our mission was Yves Saint Laurent. This is a brand that we both love and we knew we would have no trouble finding a few bits to add to our makeup bag for the big day.

Naturally I gravitated towards the foundations and the lovely Sales Associate helped me find a suitable shade in their Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation. She applied shade B10 to the side of my jaw and it was love at first sight. I have talked many times before about how pale I am but this matched perfectly. Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation is a medium coverage foundation that comes in 19 shades, so there’s a colour for almost all skin tones.

I have been a huge fan of the cult classic Touche Eclat for years and loved that the foundation had the same principles. Touche Eclat foundation is light weight and makes the skin look glowy and dewy. It doesn’t dry down to a matte finish either as the day goes on either. The only downside to this is that you can get a little transfer. Mum tried the shade B30 which she also loved. Neither of us wanted to look like we were wearing a mask for the wedding so this foundation was perfect.

The Sales Associate recommended applying a little translucent powder with a fluffy brush to set the foundation in place and enhance its wear time. I used Vichy’s Dermablend Setting Powder for this.
I ended up mixing the Touche Eclat foundation with my EX1 Invisiwear Foundation for Mum’s wedding day as this was purely down to my rookie error of not buying an additional shade for when I’m rocking a bit of fake tan. These two foundations mixed together were heavenly though and provided me with a gorgeous medium to full coverage that lasted all day.

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation comes in 30ml bottles for £32.50. I highly recommend popping down to your nearest Yves Saint Laurent counter to try out the foundation for yourself. What foundation did you wear for your last formal occasion? xoxo
