Hello make up aficionados,
Today this blogger is a very happy bunny.
If you follow me on Instagram, you will remember that few weeks back I published a picture of a small foundation sample, saying it was one of the best foundation ever tried...shame the label was lost so I didn't have any idea who the maker was.
Now, thanks God, I now which one it was, hence the need to write about it.
I found the little lost label in the drawer, where the sample use to be before I moved it to put it on the dressing table ready to be tried.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we are talking about the YSL beauty.....foundation.
Yes yes I know, I am a little late on this discovery but when it first came out, I had a go at the counter and it just didn't work for me, but at this point I believe it was just a bad application on a not so clean face like it should be, considering the MUA did not remove my make up beforehand.
I kept the sample in the drawer where it was forgotten.
When it came to my attention again, tbe label was lost so, without knowing it was the same foundation, I started to use it and it has been PURE LOVE.
It's incredibly smooth with the lighter consistency I have ever tried.
I apply it with a stripping brush, quite quickly because it tents to be absorbed rapidly.
I like full coverage (thanks to my horrible complexion) and I found it incredibly easy to build it up until a nice intense but not heavy effect.
It has got a matte finish but it doesn't dry out or worse, flake all around. I apply some setting powder but I have got the feeling you could skip this stage if you have got dry skin because the finish is absolutely impeccable.
It lasts all day with little need of retouch and comes in a impressive range of 16 shades. I was advised B60 and for your reference, I am normally MAC nc30 and Estee Lauder Doublewear "tawny".
All this joy is not cheap, on the YSL website the Fusion Ink Foundation is £31.50 but I will be more than happy to pay these money to achieve the perfect base we all look for when it comes to make up.
If you like the Armani Maestro, you are gonna love this, blends much better and lasts for longer.
If you are around a YSL counter, ask them a sample and let me know what you think about it.
In the following pictures, you will be able to see some before/after situations, thanks again blogger app for being such a pain and for not letting me organize the picture as I want.
