Foundation Friday – YSL Touche Éclat All-in-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer

If you had told me six (6) months ago that my skin would be dry/normal enough to test out non-mattifying, dare I say dewy, foundations, I would call you crazy! However, that’s exactly what I have been doing and what I’m doing again on another episode of Foundation Friday! Today, I’m testing out the @yslbeauty Touche Eclat All-in-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer ($48 for 1.01 ounces at @sephora).

What it claims:

🔘 A skin-loving, all-in-one tinted moisturizer

🔘 Evens complexion

🔘 Smooths fine lines

🔘 Natural, luminous finish

🔘 Oil-free, noncomedogenic, talc-free and dermatologist-tested

🔘 Coverage is buildable from light to medium

My experience:

👍🏻👎🏻 This has a fragrance, but I don’t find it overpowering or unpleasant.

🔘 I used B30 Almond, the lightest shade provided in the sample trio, and it was a little dark, but since it’s a lighter coverage, it didn’t look bad.

👍🏻 I didn’t use a primer because I wanted to see how it looked with unfilled pores and fine lines. Thankfully, it blurred my pores, so I don’t think a primer is necessary with this product.

👍🏻👎🏻 There are only twelve (12) shades in the collection. Even though the coverage is light and that means the shades are more forgiving, it still isn’t sufficient.

🔘 I set my under eyes, forehead, nose and chin because I still get oily in my t-zone and wanted to give this product the best chance for success.

👍🏻 I used one of my current favorite foundation brushes to apply it (the @ecotools Wonder Cover Complexion Brush ($8.99 at @ultabeauty)) and it blended out beautifully to a low medium, glowy coverage.

👍🏻 I used a cream bronzer, blush and highlight and they applied seamlessly on top.

👍🏻👎🏻 It has settled slightly into my nose and chin creases and fine lines in my forehead.

👍🏻👎🏻 My skin has felt hydrated all day long, but that also means it has remained slightly tacky to the touch.

👍🏻👎🏻 Around hour four (4), I noticed that my nose was getting a oily. However, I would prefer that over it looking dry.

👍🏻 Seven (7) hours in, I don’t notice any fading.

My verdict?

This is such a beautiful tinted moisturizer! It gives me the perfect amount of coverage, makes my skin feel hydrated and blurs my pores! However, the price point being what it is turns me off nearly completely. I am going to use the other sample I have and may even grab a sample of the lighter shade to see if with a couple of more uses I know for sure if it’s worth the investment.

Have you tried this product? Am I crazy for considering a purchase? Or is it worth it?
