Hang on a minute. What was that last one? YSL has released a radiance-enhancing foundation version of this legendary highlighter that delivers the magic of this wee illuminating highlighter to your entire mug? No. Way.
Actually, yes way.
Ladies, try not to squeal too loud, because we’d love you to meet Le Teint Touche Éclat – an ultra-fine, silky fluid foundation that instantly conceals pesky imperfections, while giving the skin a stunning luminous glow, too. Yep, you can officially say goodbye to dull, grey complexions with this newbie.
Better yet, containing Yves Saint Laurent’s new 'soft focus gel' formula, Le Teint Touche Éclat is able smooth out imperfections without masking your skin in an unnatural finish, and uses golden pigments – as opposed to mirror-like mother-of-pearl particles – to brighten dark, shadowy areas of the face and maximise the effect of light in a natural way.
bh prediction: we’re assuming this spiffy YSL foundation will no doubt cause a serious stir in the beauty world, and become a cult product like its older sister right before our illuminated eyes. You heard it here first…
