YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Review

Le Teint Touche Eclat
Claims: "Targets shadowy areas and highlights the contours of the face. With buildable coverage and free of opaque fillers, the perfecting texture evens the complexion and conceals imperfections, enhancing the skin’s natural beauty."
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Review: This is probably the most expensive makeup item I own. Particularly in terms of it's value. I was lucky enough to pick this up at the Duty Free section of Changi Airport as I mentioned in this post. Okay, let's get the obvious out of the way first. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous yet simple. I don't expect any less from YSL. I love that it comes with a pump for you to dispense the product. Plus points for hygiene!

This is a light coverage foundation that can be built up to medium with more layers (I demonstrate how this foundation covers up a lot of my facial imperfections below). It is also very lightweight and I don't notice its presence throughout the day. The lasting power is not excellent but is greatly improved when paired with a primer. I like to apply Benefit's Porefessional primer before hand.

The shade I own is B30 and it's a very good match for my skin, particularly my neck. This foundation can cover most of my pigmentation very well. I usually only need very little concealer for one or two very dark spots and a bit more for under my eyes. To the naked eye, my skin looks practically flawless. Whether it makes my skin look radiant, I cannot tell because I don't see it when I look in the mirror. But sometimes, when I look back at photos, I feel like it does.

Would I repurchase this product when it runs out? I'm not sure. It's very pricey and I get the feeling that I'm not completely head over heels with this product. I mean, I love it but I can live without it. I'm gonna try other foundations first before I can definitively say this is the only one for me.

What's your favourite foundation? How much are you willing to spend for the perfect foundation for your skin? 


  1. I've only heard great things about this foundation and it looks lovely on you! But I do agree that is it quite pricey, especially if its 'the one' for people!

  2. Your skin already looks very very flawless bare! You have slight pigmentation like me too but I definitely think you have almost no redness or uneven coloring! It looks very good on but this is not the first review I've heard about it being good but nothing amazing. Thanks for sharing your honest opinion!

  3. love the finish!! maybe it is definitely worth the price with the rave i hear about it on blogs and youtube!! i absolutely love the coverage as well!! great review ty!

  4. It does look amazing on your skin, but it is quite pricey!

    My favourite foundation is MAC Face and Body - been using it for quite a while now and I do like it. I've received Double Wear in my BH BlogStar prize, so will give that one a go as well. I'm willing to pay more for foundation if I'm really happy with it though, but my MAC one works out to be cheaper than the low end foundations :)

    Really good review though and I might give it a go - your skin looks flawless!


  5. Thank you for this review, people have been saying it is soooo amazing, but I can't afford such an expensive product without have read a review :)
