A new foundation is in town and, of course, I had to try it.

Announced with a massive campaign, the new YSL Touche Eclat has finally hit the stores.

At first it has been a Selfridges exclusive but I believe now is available at every YSL counter.

I have to say a big "well done" to YSL for the campaign of this foundation: on facebook and various magazines was possible to find a coupon to receive a 7 days trial sample of the product.

This is the best way to earn costumers; how many times have you choose a foundation, swatching every single shades all over your arms, wrists, hands, chin, jaw line, neck, nose and, why not, legs if easy to rich, only to come back home and realise that the colour that you've got at the end is just wrong??

And how many time have you bought what was supposed to be the "one" and has been just "the last one to go straight into the bin" because it didn't check any of the promised boxes?
Me? Every other time.

This is why I love the fact that YSL gave everyone the chance to try the product first, other companies out there, I am talking to you, try to take example.

When I went to the counter in Selfridges exchange square, the lovely sale assistant picked up the shade for me, and bless her, she was right, it blends perfectly with my skin!

I am mac nc30 and the shade she decided for me is BD50; with 22 available shades you'll not have problems to find the right one for you.

The texture is very light, of course has got a very liquid consistency and once applied on the skin is very fresh and smooth.

It adsorbs very quickly but I wouldn't say it's difficult to blend.

I use my Sonia Kashuk brush and it does the job, giving me a very flawless complexion in few seconds. 

The coverage is so good but what really impresses me is the finish and the final effect I got : a smooth and even skin, a natural colour that doesn't fade or worse change in good 5 or 6 hours, a perfect canvas for the rest of my make up.

I don't have a lot of spots at the moment, just few sun spots and pigmentation, and the YSL touche eclat foundation helped me to have such an even complexion that for once I actually skipped concealer!

Priced £28 for 30ml, it comes in a glass bottle with a pump to dspense the product.

Will I buy it? Yes, definitely!

Have you tried this yet? Thoughts?
