I love those weekends when you can just get up slowly and have some time to test out new makeup or hair things because if they go wrong, you're not stuck with it for the rest of the day!
Today I thought I'd try out my little sample of YSL's Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation. You can get a 7 day sample at any YSL counter, and they can match you up and everything. I'd read good things about it and I've never tried a YSL product before so I thought I'd give it a whirl! It retails at £28 so I want to see if it's the right foundation for me first!
It's a really lovely, light formula which sits so nicely on the skin. It doesn't feel heavy in the slightest, and is very moisturising. I'd say it had quite a dewy finish, which I sometimes like, but today I set it with my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder. On their website it's described as an 'illuminating foundation' which is a good representation of how it works. I think the coverage is medium but buildable, as I felt it took a couple of layers to cover up any redness, but my skin isn't great at the moment so if I was having a better skin day I wouldn't have had to use so much! Oh and I have to say that the colour match was perfect, which might be down to the fact that they make this foundation in different shades depending on whether your skin has beige, yellow or pink undertones. They gave me the shade B40. As usual I covered up any imperfections with my Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Medium which works like a dream every time.
On my eyes I'm wearing Suspect and Snakebite from the Naked 2 palette and Rimmel's ScandalEyes mascara. For blush I used Bobbi Brown's blusher in the shade 'Blush' (the most imaginative name for a blush, don't you think?!) and on my lips is Boots Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in Raspberry.
Hope you liked this post! I don't usually like to do posts that include my face but on the rare occasion that I can capture myself on a good skin/hair/lighting day I will share my makeup! Do let me know if you'd like to see more of these kinds of posts, feedback is always greatly appreciated!
Have you tried this foundation?
Do you think it's worth the money?
