Twenty years after launching the iconic Touche Éclat, Yves Saint Laurent introduced innovative technology that brings the magic of the brightening illuminator. Since I use Touche Éclat for years, I immediately liked the idea of a product that is inspired on it. And I was right, Le Teint Touche Éclat fulfilled my expectations.
It has very light texture and feels very light on the skin. Only a few drops are needed to cover the entire face and to achieve a natural look. To get the best results, use a quality brush. Lloyd Simmonds, creative makeup director of YSL, designed a brush for this foundation that provides easy, professional application. Unfortunately, I have not tried it, so my recommendation goes to Shiseido Perfect Foundation Brush and Sigma Beauty F80. This foundation has a tendency to accentuate some skin irregularities, such as dryness. That can be the case with light foundations (such as Dior Nude foundation), but with quality brush you can minimize it.
The main task of Le Teint Touche Éclat is to illuminate the skin and it fulfills its purpose. The face is lighted and there’s no mask effect. It refreshes a tired face and has a refreshing scent as well (smells like violets). On my normal skin type stays on for a good number of hours, but I’m not sure would it be the same with oily skin. It provides low to medium coverage and it evens out the skin.
The range of shades is great and you can choose the right one based on your skin undertone. The B20 is designed for neutral undertone, while shades for yellow undertones begin with BD (e.g. BD20) and for pink ones with BR (e.g. BR20).
