When summer heat is at an all time high, how do you maintain a flawless look? With the YSL primer and perfector, it’s easy!
Just in time for wedding makeup trials, I tested these two products for an all-natural look.
The YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer feels just as luxurious on the skin as it does in its packaging. The fine gold flecks add a soft luminescent shimmer. The lightweight gel evens the skin’s texture to appear flawless. Even the subtle floral fragrance is welcoming.
Does it work?
The primer makes the skin feel smooth and makes applying foundation an easy process. The lightweight formula makes it appear as if you’re not wearing it at all. I love the gold flecks which add a healthy glow to the skin in a very subtle way. I can see the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer as a great everyday primer for smoothing and brightness. I’m not sure if it has the staying power to last though a wedding, especially with super hot temperatures.
The YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector is an interesting product. The light pink palette reminds of a blush compact with a soft white sponge applicator. This cream to powder formula is recommended as a foundation base or as a finishing powder.
The first time, I used it as a finishing powder. The creaminess of the perfector was not an asset when applying over other products causing a bit of smearing. It was also difficult to determine the coverage. The second time, I tested it as a makeup base and it worked much better. They say a little goes a long way, but I had to add quite a bit to get the desired smoothing effect. It seemed like the light pink color might transfer onto the skin, but it seemed to leave a more translucent look. Throughout the day, the perfector was average in leave the skin looking smoother and mattifying ability.
Overall, these two luxury products are beautifully packaged and are decently effective. For full coverage and heavy duty use (like for a wedding), I’d prefer to use other products. These YSL Touche Eclat products would be great for everyday application, especially to achieve that barely there feeling.
