YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Review

The Fold Over Braid Hair Tutorial
I had to try it.

I’d been itching to try it for over a year. It’s the foundation I’ve heard the most about from other beauty bloggers.

A promotion came up at Sephora so I bit the bullet and threw it in my cart.

Overall, I like it. Does it blow me away? Not really.

It’s beautifully sheer and is probably the most natural looking foundation I’ve ever worn. It sinks in, but doesn’t feel heavy. It’s the right amount of glow and illumination without being too shiny. It’s build-able, but wears really well as a sheer-medium coverage. 

I find that I need to make sure my blemishes are concealed very well since it does wear quite sheer. Full-coverage foundations allow me to be less meticulous about covering blemishes. 

It was built up so much in my head since I had heard so many great things about it. I think my expectations were possibly a little too high.

If you are on the search for a beautiful and sheer foundation, and willing to seriously invest in something, give it a try. If you prefer a bit more coverage, or a more reasonable price point, I’d suggest looking elsewhere!

Oh, I love this foundation, and I have horrendous skin! I think because I am so fair and this really is the first foundation that has been the perfect match for me,then I give it a few extra points. If you add the nars creamy radiant concealer then you have a pretty perfect combo for fair blemish prone skin!!
As always, I love the lipstick!! Can I ask what it is?

My skin is as fair as you can get and I always had a hard time finding the makeup that would blend in well with my natural color. I have been using Lancôme Dual Finish for the past year and I love everything about it!

I like that it’s sheer, which is great for this time of year but it is a pricy foundation :o) Xx

I have had that happen with many products. It does look good on you but if it’s not love-it’s not.

I’m like you and would rather have a fuller-coverage foundation, so thank you for your honest review. I’ve been intrigued by it, but I think I’ll pass (for now… unless I catch a sale and the itch comes up…haha).

I am about to lose the will power battle with the Hourglass Blush. I lost the battle with Hourglass Mineral Primer and I am so glad I did. It hurt my heart to spend $52 on a primer but it has literally changed my skin for the better!

You will LOVE the HG blush.. I just bought one and ordered another one I loved it that much, and now I want them all. lol Promise you won’t regret the HG.

I have fair, pale skin with cooler undertones (I’m NC25 with MAC powder is that helps) and I can’t decide which one would be best for me. Thoughts?

Since you mentioned it a couple of times in this post…I’d love to see a post about blemishes with tips on how to conceal and some of the products you love to do so.

for any type of beauty you should use surgery. before using lipstick you should must consult with doctor, because sometime lipstick is harmful for your lips.

Sixty dollars? Yikes. Love my Mary Kay and it’s only $20. Especially the new CC cream they just came out with. Personal preferences though. πŸ™‚

I’ve wondered about it too. I hate it when you finally splurge and then it’s kind of a let down. Good thing for great return policies πŸ™‚

Regardless of how you feel about the foundation, you look ridiculously gorgeous here. Thought you ought to know. πŸ˜‰

Have you ever tried the It Cosmetics CC cream? I have loved using it as a lighter, but better coverage, foundation.

I’ve tried this one as well, I’m very fair so the match for me is incredible. I really like it but just don’t want to spend that much for daily foundation. I actually prefer this one to the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk which is incredibly hyped up and beauty bloggers and InStyle magazine swear by it, I ordered it for my wedding. If you want to keep searching you could try it πŸ˜‰

Justine says · 04.15.14

I haven’t tried them yet, but Kate’s post mirrors my expectations of Giorgio Armani foundations: Luminous Silk, Lasting Silk, and Maestro. I’d also like to try the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders and NARS Translucent Crystal Light Reflecting Setting Powders (Loose and Pressed). Who knows if I’ll eventually succumb to the hype?

Reply
Trisha Hiers says · 04.16.14

I agree, I think the whole touche eclat line is overrated- from foundation to “concealer”. Anyway, have you ever tried any of the Hourglass foundations? I know you like the Ambient blushes (I’m dying over those right now!) but their foundations are really worth trying- I especially like the Illusion line. Whenever I wear that foundation I get the most compliments on my skin.

i’ve never tried the foundation, but love the touche eclat pen! it gives a great reflecting highlight wherever you need a bit of deflecting πŸ™‚ have you tried nars’ foundation? it gives a great dewy finish, which I love!

Yep, the Touche Eclat is well overrated, especially the ‘concealer’ pen. It’s rubbish and does not conceal anything. It’s not shimmery enough to be a highlighter really and for the price, I cannot believe so many people still swear by it. YSL laughing all the way to the bank.
