Yves Saint Laurent makeup

Yves Saint Laurent PERFECT TOUCH Radiant Brush Foundation

There's a lot of good to say about Yves Saint Laurent PERFECT TOUCH Radiant Brush Foundation. It's lightweight, yet it provides good coverage. It feels good on the skin. It has a subtle luminescence that brightens the complexion.

On the negative side, the foundation tends to separate. I shake it before application: the package insert recommends that the user dispense foundation onto the back of her hand and blend it. It takes some practice to squeeze just the right amount, not too much. I find the brush applicator a nuisance, as I blend foundation by stippling with my fingertips or with Beautyblender.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch

Editor's favorite Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch lives up to its hype. It brightens the eye area and other "shadows" on the face, without being overly pearlescent. Some might find, however, that Touche Eclat doesn't provide the necessary coverage to serve as an concealer.

Touche Eclat was created by Terry de Gunzburg, who has gone on to establish her own luxe line By Terry.

I bought the Maybelline Dream Mousse foundation yesterday based on your review.

Day one: I'm quite pleased with it so far!
