We’re wearing a sheer layer of YSL’s Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation all over our face and we love it.
Why wouldn’t we? It’s an icon after all. The OG Touche Éclat, an all-over brightening pen that lit up the beauty world in 1992 and, reportedly, continues to sell six pens every 60 seconds was and remains a makeup game changer. Even now with this new foundation. The famous hybrid formulation (is it a brightener? Is it a concealer?) highlights our cheekbones, brightens dark under eye circles, diffuses redness and just plain gives our skin a gorgeous glow, but now, it’s spread all over our face. The new luminous foundation bearing the same iconic name is now providing us with the exact same outcome as our favoured and revered pen.
As an all-over foundation, Le Teint contains marigold and mallow extracts with vitamin E to even out tone, illuminate the skin and protect it from the environment. So while the iconic formula is intact, these new ingredients, sourced from the Moroccan Atlas mountains, provide full coverage and with a weightless, hydrating and breathable glow. With 30 shades to choose from (we like BD 10 Warm Porcelain), there’s a hue for everyone.
But it’s not just the universality of the product we adore. It is the foundation’s ability to transform our face into covetous, natural-looking, gorgeous and seemingly flawless skin we can’t get enough of. Ever. So mark our words, Le Teint is sure to be the next YSL Touche Éclat must-have, must-wear makeup icon.
