When it was first launched Le Teint Touche Eclat was acclaimed as one of the best beauty buys of 2012.
So I put it to the test.
The foundation is not heavy, but more of a mid coverage foundation that is designed purely to highlight the skin and make it illuminated.
Within the unique formula is a heavy moisturiser base which gives your skin the dewy glow that Hollywood stars are renown for.
As a designer product YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat isn’t the cheapest foundation and I picked it up for £30 at Selfridges. It comes in a traditional gold packaging box and inside is a little information booklet on the foundation. The bottle is made from glass so is pretty heavy and there is a push button to expel the foundation.
As with most foundations a little goes a long way and one or two blobs were enough to cover my entire face. The colour match on my foundation was perfect so there was no orange mismatch between the product and my skin.
The foundation is quite creamy and sinks in quickly into the skin. It is not good for covering up spots or blemishes as it’s only a mid coverage so you will have to use a concealer with this. The overall look is very much a natural look so if you’re more of a person who likes a lot of coverage you may want to consider MAC foundations.
By the evening the foundation is still visible and its staying power had only faded slightly.
I love the glow the foundation gave me and so I’ll give it a 5/5
