YSL Le Teint Touché Éclat Foundation

So I am usually not one to believe in highly priced products as in the past I have been majorly let down but I'm starting to brush off that attitude after my free sample haul.

This sample was given to me at the Meadowhall Girls Night In and it's their most popular foundation. It's described to be illuminating and light to highlight the contours of the face without containing any opaque powders. I think that lack of powder is a really good quality for a foundation as it means it genuinely is lighter. I hate the heavy, mask-like feeling you get from some foundations and it just makes me feel like my pores are clogging and I am giving myself spots! Although, I'm often a sucker if the coverage is decent.

This foundation, however, has been coverage as well as that light feeling so it gets a big thumbs up from me. It smells really fresh too. I wore this foundation to a day festival and it moved a little in areas where I got most sweaty (top of forehead and on my nose underneath my sunglasses) but generally it stayed on pretty well. A little shine did come through but it isn't described as a matte foundation so I don't think I can complain about that. 

I was given in in Shade B50 - I like my foundation a little warmer than my skin tone due to fake tan so it is perfect for me. At £28.00 I think - yes, it's expensive - but it's very good compared to other high end foundations I have tried. 

Thank you to YSL at Debenhams, Meadowhall :) And if any of you ladies want a 7 day trial just head over to your local YSL counter and ask away!

I asked for a warmer shade than my skin tone and I am tanless here so you can see it's coverage quite well. I can;t get over how light this foundation feels on my skin.
