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.

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.

Expect that with more use I will be able to estimate how much to use instead of putting too much into my hand to work from. Texture and coverage is fab, but i think a more easy to use bottle would be good.

Ok, so, the first impressions I had when I first used this foundation were not very good; I applied it with my fingers (as recommended by a few people who had used it before) and I didn't like it at all! That said, I was very impressed with the colour match; which shocked me as I can never find my colour. However, when I applied it with a brush the next time, I fell in love with it! It's a really nice foundation. Very illuminating without making you look shiny. The only reasons why I haven't given it full marks is because 1. I have to conceal before I apply it (which annoys me because I like to do it the other way around) and 2. because I think it has been specifically designed to be used with the Touche Éclat highlighting pen on top (which is very clever, but also a bit annoying because you as I said can't put any old concealer over the top especially in the eye area) I personally like my foundations to be adaptable and not limited to only using one brand's entire range. Also, 3. I have very sensitive skin and eyes. And this foundation did bleed into my eyes and cause my vision to become blurred all day (but that could just be my fault for applying it too close to the eye) On the flip side it has not made me break out and it feels very light weight. All in all I will be using it from now on and I'll probably buy it again if I don't get bored of it. I think it's important to play around with a new foundation before you completely strike it off and luckily my patience has allowed me to find out how amazing this product is!
