Today’s review: Touche Eclat

This is year is my foundation year. It was some years I’ve been using only mineral make up or bb creams. But I was dying for trying some new traditional foundations’ formulas. So I tried some from various brands.

This time I want to talk about the famous Touche Eclat Foundation by Yves-Saint-Laurent. I read several reviews about it and many were positive so I decided to give it a try. I bought it on Feelunique since here in Italy I couldn’t find the lightest shade, plus on the Uk site it’s cheaper (and it was on sale!) ;)

I chose B10 shade and it’s pretty perfect for my skin (I have very fair skin a warm pink /peachy undertone), but you can choose among three undertones range of shades: B for neutrals, BD for goldens and BR for pinkish.

I don’t do swatches of foundations since they’re invisible on my skin of course ;)

I love its consistency: it’s between liquid and a cream and it blends into skin without any effort, extremely lightweight, just like a tinted moisturizer. The claim is a , with a dewy finish. I have to say that I really see this effect on my skin: it is highlighted and any shadow seems concealed!

The finish is glowy but not in a bad way though, it’s not greasy and I didn’t break out. I have an skin, combinated with a lot of dry areas. On me this foundation covers well – and I didn’t expect it! – any blemishes and large pores and doesn’t mark dry frackles.

It lasts well for about 10 hours. I find it perfect for these cold days, maybe on summer it will be necessary a powder re-touch.

Have you ever tried this Touche Eclat Foundation? What do you think about all his hype?

  1. Thanks for the review, I am keen to try this when I have some spare money! I’ve just been concerned it wouldn’t give me enough coverage but as I generally use a tinted moisturiser in the spring/summer I think I will wait until then and try it!

    • Well, I find it gives to me enough coverage – I’d say medium coverage – but it’s very buildable since it’s not cackey at all :)

  2. Tra il profumo fortissimo che mi sento in faccia tutto il giorno ed il finish un po’ meh, devo dire che non mi ha particolarmente impressionata. Si carino, ma niente di che. Poi devo ammettere che la differenza di prezzo tra UK e Italia mi aveva già irritata in partenza :s Peccato, perchè le tonalità disponibili sono tante e la B10 andava abbastanza bene, anche se è un pizzichino troppo rosa per i miei gusti :(

    • @bea_ichigo Io adoro il profumo dei prodotti ysl XD però devo dire che non lo sento più appena messo… i fondotinta: ogni review è a sé da quanto sono soggettivi :D pensa che sarei tentata persino di fare il bis!

      • @kenderasia ho il naso super fino io, per cui i profumi li sento un sacco, soprattutto così vicini al naso. Rossetti e gloss YSL hanno un profumo fantastico, ma tra questo fondo e il mascara mi viene una nausea che metà basta ^^

        • @bea_ichigo azz ^^’ povera :( io stranamente non ho problemi, nonostante sia difficilissima per i profumi veri e proprio (o mi scatenano il vomito o puzzano di marcio, ne salvo pochissimi XD)

  3. lo adoro!! è il primo fondotinta liquido che, nonostante sia mediamente coprente, non mi pesa sulla pelle; e poi adoro il suo profumo di cetriolo.. almeno a me sembra cetriolo XD
