Yves Saint Laurent YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation Review

Hello Ladies! 

I'm so excited to post this review because this is truly one of the best foundations I have probably ever tried. And believe me, I have tried a TON! I tried everything from drugstore(Revlon colorstay, Maybelline fit me, dream smooth mouse, Rimmel stay matte, a bunch of Neutrogena ones, L'Oreal, PP, and you get the idea) all the way to high end (MAC, UD, NARS, Chanel, Mally, Benefit, Dior, MUFE, Giorgio Armani, Laura Mercier, and you get the point again). For someone who has tried a lot more foundations than the average person I would say, I think I am confidently able to say that THIS foundation blows everything I have tried out of the water, hands down. First off, the packaging is simple yet very sleek and luxurious looking. It is 1 fluid oz/30ml. The gold is YSL's signature color used on almost all of their products, it looks beautiful.

 And yes it has a pump! This makes for a cleaner application. You have to be careful though, even if you press lightly, it can pump out more product than you would like. This is probably the only downside.
 It comes out in a very creamy/liquid consistency, yet if i move my hand around it will not move all around like for example the liquid powder foundation by L'oreal. It almost feels gel-like.
 As you can see it is extremely pigmented and that little pump is enough for your face, probably a bit too much even. This is when I tried to use a light hand and all of that came out. This is definitely a very full coverage foundation.
 As you can see, it blends out so smoothly and beautifully. It has a dewy finish, but if you prefer matte, a little powder on top can easily take care of that.
This foundation will stay on as long as you leave it on. Many foundations, high end or drug-store, can fade by the end of the day or after 5-8 hours. Not this bad boy. This will stay on and look good as if you had just applied it. Your blush will also not disappear when applied over this foundation. All in all, I think it is a gorgeous foundation and truly a great investment. It is different from what is out there, and I really saw a difference in how it looks, how it wears throughout the day, and how long it lasts. It is $57.00 and the color I have is BR40. For comparison, I use NARS Sheer Glow in Punjab.
Let me know what you guys think if you have this foundation!
