I bought this foundation in #8 at a make-up counter in the airport where the sales lady matched me up. Unfortunately she matched me up with the totally wrong shade, and I look quite nice when I apply this but it becomes too orange after five or ten minutes. Maybe it oxidizes or something. During the winter months I am too fair for this foundation, and during the summer months I really do not like to apply too much foundation.
It is a shame that I did not find the right match for my skin, because I really like this foundation. It has a silky smooth feel when applied with a proper foundation brush. It does not make my poors clog, and it does not make my oily t-zone worse either. And it holds quite nice during the day. Even though it is pricey, this product delivers. I like everything about this foundation, except from the small colour range.
This is my HG foundation! I have it in #4 which is a bit too light for my nc 25 skintone. It gives the most beautiful matte finish (not too matte). It's great for people with combination skin like me. The lasting power is great. I work 10 hours a day and when I want my foundation to stay (without setting it with a powder) this is the best for me! It is pricey but worth the money :) give this a try!
Best foundation ever!
#4 sand matches my skin better than any foundation I've ever used. Ive tried Shu Uemura, Nars, Dior, Chanel and none of them have come as close as this. The finish is beautiful and almost creates a light from within that brings perfected life to your skin. Looks flawless and amazing on everybody.
I am in MAC shade NC37 what shade would I be in this foundation???
Before beginning the review, I want to say that I have sensitive skin that is very dry most of the year but in humid and warm summers becomes dry to normal. I am an NC15-20 in MAC foundations depending on the season, and have a few broken capillaries but no acne.
Ok, now for the foundation:
I have Teint Resist in shade 2, which fits me best in winter. The texture is not the smoothest liquid foundation I have come across, but it isn't grainy either. It is about medium to full-medium coverage.
This foundation was tricky for me to work with for a while, since it seemed to accentuate drier areas on my face (perhaps my fault for buying a non-moisturizing foundation on my dry skin...). I wanted a transfer-proof foundation for a special occasion since I find that some of my foundations transfer without a light setting of loose powder. Teint Resist applied fairly nicely without a moisturizing primer and a MAC 188 stippling brush and photographs beautifully, but after an hour (no powder used) my face was looking drier than normal. I tried many times and with different methods to apply this, and almost gave up, but decided to apply it over my Korres Quercetin and Oak primer and to use a flat foundation brush instead of a MAC 188 stippling, using short stroking motions to avoid flakiness. The result was a matte, even skin tone that covered up the redness from my broken capillaries. I do need to add a little highlighter and contour to keep it from being too matte. It photographs nicely and does not transfer at all! It could probably last more than 12 hours, however I haven't tried it past 8.
I considered giving this foundation a 3 because of the difficulty I had finding a way to apply it, however I should have known that might have been tricky since sometimes people with dry skin have difficulty with transfer-proof foundation. But it can work, and looks so nice in photos. I personally would not purchase it again, however it might work easily for people with combination to oily skin types. It also seems to work for people with dry skin, based on previous reviews here, it just took more effort for me than I was hoping for.
I hope this was helpful! Teint Resist is really a nice foundation and the bottle is classy. I recommend at least trying a sample of it if you are looking for a completely transfer-proof, medium coverage foundation.
Firstly, I should say that I was not looking to buy this foundation. I was perfectly happy with the Rimmel foundation I had found at my local supermarket and was actually in the department store intending to buy skincare. However, the YSL lady managed to cast her spell on me with promises such as 'wears all day', 'stunning on your skin' and 'doesn't clog pores' and VOILA! I walked away considerably poorer with this foundation in hand.
Now I know that the reason I was satisfied with cheaper foundations is because I hadn't tried THIS one. The coverage is amazing and the scent is really lovely- almost like cucumber? It also goes an extremely long way with a few pumps covering my entire face. However the real wonder of this foundation is in the APPLICATION: I hadn't even realised applying foundation could be this easy! This formula literally glides onto the skin, so all it takes is one finger and five spare minutes in the morning and I have flawless stress-free skin. It gives a nice flawless finish without looking cakey as well, which is good because I HATE foundation cake!
On the negative side, this foundation is VERY pricey. Pricey enough to balance out all the positives to it, even. All I can say is that you get what you are paying for, and the bottle lasts a long time.
Overall I am a very happy customer and I am happy to fork out the cash permanently for naturally flawless-looking transfer-free foundation.
I am nw20 at the moment and I wear this in shade 02 Blond. This is a beautiful foundation for summer. I get very oily in the summer, and this foundation has held up better than most anything I've tried. The only thing that has lasted longer for me is Revlon's Colorstay, but it breaks me out horribly. I've also tried Lancome Teint Idole Fresh Wear and Estee Lauder Double Wear Light, which are both very nice foundations, but still didn't last all day for me in the summer. Teint Resist beat them all. It's a sheer coverage, lightweight foundation that evens out your skintone beautifully, but will not hide any major flaws. It's somewhat buildable, but really looks its best with just one layer. I use 3 pumps for my entire face, and apply in in sections with my fingers, since it sets rather quickly. I've found that it applies and blends best over freshly washed skin that is still moist but not wet. It dries to a sort of satin matte finish, but not a dead matte. I like to use Fix+ over it to give it a more dewy look. On me, this foundation will last well into the night as long as I don't mess with my face too much by wiping or blotting. My ONE complaint about this foundation is the pump.... the pump sucks. You can't really really do a half pump or anything, so you get the same amount no matter how much pressure you apply. If they changed the pump so that you had more control with it, it would be a flawless product.
Beautiful coverage perfect for warm weather. I use a good moisterizer under it because I have normal skin. It's never dry looking just looks like perfect skin. Love not having to dust over it with powder. Very happy with this foundation.
Great foundation for oily-combination skin. Looks beautiful and feels great. The staying power is very good. I am using shade #7, it is neutral light-medium shade. It has medium-full coverage, but still feels very light on skin, does not feel like a mask. I like it much better than new Dior Forever foundation formula, cause YSL Teint Resist does not feel dry and looks on skin much better.
This foundation is amazing! I am a MAC NC30 and got the shade #5. The coverage is buildable and it smells nice (though not a very strong scent).
I have oily/combo skin depending on the weather but I found that the best application with this foundation is not to use the flat foundation brush!!! It causes streaks! A beauty blender sponge or a stippling brush works the best (even fingers, well for me). Those with dry patchy skin, moisturise before you use this!
The finish was very matte, and my face did not turn oily at the end of the day unlike the MAC studio finish. I highly recommend it even though it is on the pricier side. One pump is enough for me and it feels like your not wearing any foundation on your face at all! It did not oxidise on me either.
Overall I would purchase again when I run out!
