Product Review; "Yves Saint Laurent Teint Radiance Foundation"
Most well known for it's trademark concealer the luxury cosmetics brand YSL Beaute has more to offer than just the Touche Eclat.
While the Touche Eclat offers brightening coverage for under-eyes, it's even better paired with Teint Radiance; a medium coverage foundation that creates a smooth finish. The formula also stays demi-matte with a light-weight sheen to reflect light and create the illusion of a more flawless complexion. Using a foundation brush or clean fingertips, one pump of fluid from the gold-topped glass bottle will cover half of face before it's even sheered away. The slightest amount is necessary to make skin glow preternaturally without looking heavy but still offer necessary coverage.
If you decide you do want more coverage you can add just the slightest bit more without building density. Although, intitially I did find the formula to have a moist sensation so it's best to let it dry down before layering more product. While "wet" to the touch at first, that's just the benefits of hydrating Hyaluronic Acid that absorbs into skin after only a second or two. Added to the mix is UV ray filtering SPF 20 to keep skin staying bright even after makeup removal.
