YSL Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation review

*adlink

If you want a glowy foundation with a good coverage and a very lightweight feel – Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat Le Teint foundation might just be the right foundation for you.

YSL Touche Eclat foundation is definitely a classic product. One, which I just had to test out myself. I have a thing for foundations and more often or not I opt for the more expensive ones. I think Touche Eclat foundation is reasonable priced though and worth the money.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Le Teint Foundation

It’s said on YSL’s site that this foundation is radiant and full-coverage. I was bit surprised to read that, because at first I would have said it’s medium coverage. However, it does actually have an amazing coverage. It’s just so thin and lightweight, you don’t even realize it. It covers well without looking like a mask. It leaves a beautiful radiant finish, which helps to make it look more natural.

Now since it’s not a totally matte foundation, it’s not more long lasting than, say, Double Wear foundation. It still lasts really well on my skin and it wears off nicely. I’m quite glowy at the end of the day, but my skin still looks nice and even. It lasts better if I set the foundation with a powder though, which I rarely do nowadays, even though I have some oiliness on my skin. I just like the finish this foundation leaves on my skin, I don’t want to add any more product to it. Or am I just lazy and leave the powder out therefore? Who knows.

Before & after with YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint BD30. I used it for this gold tutorial. Photos taken in softbox -light.

Touche Eclat Le Teint is easily blendable and I recommend using a damp beautyblender to apply it, as always. As said, the coverage is very nice even with one layer. You can build it up a bit too, but I just use a concealer where needed (acne and dark circles).

How the shades go in YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint foundation 

B – neutral
BD – beige dore (yellow undertone)
BR – beige radiant (pink undertone)
The number indicates the darkness of the shade.

So my shade BD30 is yellow undertone and the third lightest shade. The numbers go all the way to 70 in Beige Dore shades.

I use the shade BD 30, which is considered a golden light color. It’s quite yellow (I could have probably picked a color from the B (neutral) range), but since I’m more on on the warm side when it comes to undertones, I can use this shade. In summer it’s probably the perfect match for me. And to be honest, I feel like yellow foundations give my skin the much needed warmth, since it’s winter and I’m starting to remind one of Dracula’s victims.

Where to find & shop the foundation?

I would recommend this foundation to normal and combination skin. If you’re oily, you can probably use it too, but you need to powder it well. If you have dry skin, you have better luck with *YSL Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow foundation. Actually, it might just work amazingly for you. I let my sister, who has extremely dry skin, test both of these and she couldn’t make Touche Eclat work, but the All-In-One Glow worked perfectly. I know it’s hard to find good foundations for dry skin, so hopefully this tip will help you out.

Beauty products that I was most impressed in 2019

*adlink

As a beautyblogger I get to try a ton of different beauty products. When I evaluate the products, I use my beauty therapist knowledge about ingredients and I evaluate how the product performs. I like simple products that give me actual results. I’m genuinely excited when I get to tell you about some new product.

Choosing the best products of the year is very exciting, because the product needs to be, well, actually worth the hype. Being the best of the year and all. But I think I did a pretty good job and these are the products that I was most eager about in 2019.

Here are best beauty products of 2019!

THE BEST BEAUTY PRODUCTS OF 2019

Face cleanser – Niki Newd Oatmeal Soap

Handmade, fresh cosmetics

I have mentioned this soap several times on my blog during this year – and for a reason. It’s an awesome face cleanser, that cleans my face effectively, without making it dry. It keeps my skin balanced. I also love that it’s handmade from simple pure ingredients, doesn’t come with a big packaging (eco friendly) – and lasts really long. More about Niki Newd here.

I would recommend this for normal, mixed and oily skintypes.

Serum – Patyka Hydra-Booster Serum

Oganic, luxury

Patyka’s launch of the nine new products was one of the most exciting launches in 2019 for me. Patyka is known as this luxury brand and their products are lovely – yet a bit pricey. These new products are more affordable and still 100 % Patyka quality. My favorite product out of everything is this hydrating serum, which treats my skin with hyaluronic acid and tremella extract. The consistency is a light watery gel, which absorbs into my skin nicely. More about Patyka’s products here.

For all skintypes.

Hair care – Aquis hair towels & turbans

This year was also the year when I discovered Aquis fast drying towels. Spoiler alert: they do work and they do dry my hair faster than a regular towel. The turban is especially super helpful for my naturally wavy hair and plopping. More about Aquis here.

Foundation/CC-cream – Madara City CC

Organic

For anyone seeing me mention this CC-cream a millionth time – sorry not sorry. This was truly the year of Madara’s City CC, which I’ve not only used on myself the whole spring and summer, but also on almost all the makeup models on Makeup Monday posts. I’ve also used it in fall and winter by mixing it with my foundations. It’s hydrating, creamy and leaves a beautiful natural glow on the skin. My skin, but better!

Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Long Lash Mascara

This mascara blew my mind with a great thick concistency (giving me lots of volume), a good wand (easy to get all the lashes) and the fact, that it’s the most easiest mascara to remove (with just warm water). I’ve gone through three tubes of this already. Full post here.

Clarins Joli Blush, Cheeky Purple

When I first swatched Clarins’ new blushes, I was a bit disappointed. Then I saw how nicely they blend on the skin once applied with a blush brush – and I was hooked. These Joli blushes come in beautiful shades, they blend perfectly on the skin and are effortless to use. You can build the color up too. For winter I’ve been loving the shade Cheeky Purple, which is a cool toned bright plum. Might I add, this is the color for winter.  In Summer I used a lot of Cheeky pink and Cheeky Peach. If you’re looking for a new blush, this is a great option!
