Yves Saint Laurent LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT Illuminating Foundation SPF 19 Review

s1451558-main-hero-300I originally didn’t buy this foundation. My cousin bought it and it ended up being a tad bit too light on her so she let me try it out & I decided to review it after wearing it a few times.

Color: 60 Beige Dore (There are A LOT of shades on the YSL website instead of on Sephora.com) This color is a little too dark but it’s nothing too bad.


Price: $57 dollars at Sephora (SUPER expensive but then again, it is YSL & the quality is amazing!)

This foundation does come with a pump and it dispenses a good amount. I love the gold pump and the whole look because it looks luxurious.

Smell: This foundation smells AH-MAZ-ING! it has a light floral scent and smell is a big factor with foundation because if you apply it to your face, you will be smelling the foundation most of the day.

Application: This blends like a dream! A little goes a long way and this is a runny foundation. I found it to apply better with a beauty blender instead of a buffing brush or stipple brush.

Coverage and Finish: This has a light-medium coverage. I tried building this foundation up to full and it was just too thin to be full coverage. It has a dewy finish but not the greasy dewy. I feel as if this foundation gives a healthy glow without feeling too heavy on the face. It looks super natural and it evened out my skin.

Wear: This foundation lasted all day without getting too oily. I was really impressed with how long lasting this was. I wore it for the whole day and it didn’t budge.

Flash test: I thought this would give a white cast due to it having SPF 19 but it photographs GREAT!


Overall Rating: 9/10 (I took one point off for the price).
