Product Information

The magic light of Touche Éclat - in a foundation.

Twenty years after the launch of Touche Éclat, Yves Saint Laurent adopts a leading edge technology that transposes the magic of this legendary highlighter into a foundation to achieve the same illuminating result for the entire face.

With one unit sold every 10 seconds, Touche Éclat, the iconic product that opened a new territory in make-up by creating a new way to enhance the complexion with light.

Today, Yves Saint Laurent introduces Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation. A bold, unique formula to target shadowy areas and define contours. A magic light infused within a weightless fluid. A texture that has no mask-like effect. A formula free of opaque powders that evens the complexion and erases imperfections, enhancing the face’s natural features.

The complexion has never been so pure and alive, with that final touch of sophistication that makes all Yves Saint Laurent products so unique. With Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation, the skin is beautiful, natural and radiant. Custom-made to cast light on all the Saint Laurent people in the world.

Sunday Times Style Awards 2014 Winner.

Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation: illuminating foundation, dimensional radiance, weightless perfection.

A luminous formula:
2012. Yves Saint Laurent marks a turning point: incorporate the magic light of Touche Éclat into a foundation.

Classical foundation formulas contain varying amounts of opaque powders that ensure a diffused reflection. The negative drawback? A "mask" effect that can be a real problem, especially on darker skins, which tend to look grey.

Now, for the very first time with Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation, Yves Saint Laurent has succeeded in resolving this by replacing the opaque powder with a soft focus gel. It forms a diffusing and translucent film on the skin’s surface that smoothes away imperfections without ever masking the skin. Its key asset is to ensure skin colour purity.

In addition, instead of mother-of-pearl particles often used in foundations to produce a mirror-like reflection, Yves Saint Laurent opted for the latest generation of fluid light concentrate obtained with golden pigments that are associated with supple lamella placed side by side like infinity of mirrors. On the skin, these lamella form a reflective film to brighten shadowy areas and highlight the features, maximising the potential power of light.

Infused within a weightless fluid, Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation conceals imperfections and offers an illuminating result that defines the contours and enhances the facial features.

The skin’s natural colour interacts with the elements in the foundation to bring out a natural-looking and sophisticated radiant result.

A weightless texture:
Fresh, fluid, ultra-fine and silky, it evokes the perfect texture of Touche Éclat. It instantly ‘beautifies’ the skin with transparency.

The high percentage of volatile oils and moisturising agents give the skin instant comfort, with a caressing effect that evokes the transparent and fluid couture fashion of Yves Saint Laurent. The texture unfolds with finesse, sculpting and shaping the face like an invisible, custom-tailored garment. An ultimate pleasure for all.

The colour of the complexion, a social and cultural symbol:
Understanding people all over the world, Yves Saint Laurent anticipates their desires and defines four universal make-up strategies in terms of the complexion:

- The golden complexion. The aim is to warm the complexion, to make it look less pale and more tanned.
- The healthy glow. This consists of slightly heightening the complexion’s pink tone.
- The complexion in synergy with the skin. A foundation colour chosen to exactly match the skin, for an impeccable tone-on-tone result.
- The brightening effect. To lighten the complexion and reduce spots.

Directions for use: There are two ways to use Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation. Using fingers as you would to apply a face cream or with a foundation brush for a more sophisticated finish. Place a small amount on the back of your hand and apply in smoothing strokes from the center of the face outwards, knowing that you have to insist on the median zone. Then, a touch below the eyes where the skin tone is never very uniform, followed by delicate pats with a brush for a more covered effect. And do the same for imperfections – like a spot or blemish. Finish with a light touch of powder, but only on the T-zone - to avoid dulling the illuminating effect.

Where do I begin? Foundation blends seamlessly and gives the face a natural, youthful glow, it doesn't look cakey when applied and the product package is beautiful with a useful pump that helps minimize waste. Also, i got a discount on the product! Generally, very happy with it :)

Fantastic foundation that doesn't need to be topped up throughout the day. Stays in place and can last from morning to evening. Takes a while to soak in which is good to allow time to do precise coverage but can be frustrating when in a rush in the morning.

The best foundation for my skin, wonderful smell and it doesn't irritate or feel heavy

Excellent 09/06/14

fabulous nicely pagaged and prompt shipping.

Excellent 09/06/14

Great make up as long as you don't have oily skin, my skin is slightly dry and it works fantastic for me!

Excellent 09/06/14

Lovely foundation - nice finish . Have just orders second one slightly darker . If there were to be a negative comment it would be that buying this way you don't get a feel or a true colour sample of the products but by buying internet you are aware of this . So my choice

Excellent 08/06/14

As someone who has tried just about every high end foundation I have finally found the one. I have extremely sensitive and dry skin and have reacted to quiet a few foundations in the past, this foundation glides effortlessly onto the skin and just gives your skin the most amazing finish almost airbrushed, I am in my forties and the fine lines that I do have magically disappear there's no settling into fine lines at all, I would suggest you get coloured matched first as the colour range is extensive.

This is my second bottle and love the finish it gives and the soft glow. Applying with a brush makes it last longer, and makes my 63 year old skin feel and look younger.
