Brilliant foundation for the winter. Gives a dewy(ish) finish or will become dewy at the end of the day, so if you don't like that this won't be your type of foundation.
Gave me great coverage, supposed to be low - medium but buildable.
I've noticed with this foundation, what matters is the way you apply it. If you apply it on very well it'll look beautiful on your skin.
Also one of the few foundations that does NOT break me out!! So that's a bonus. Lasting power is good too. Remember to wear primer underneath!
Note that if you have oily skin I would avoid this foundation. It's best suited for dry/combination and sensitive skin.
Downfall is the price. Way too expensive as with most high end brands.

I am using every day this foundation. I think it is one of the best in the world! The only con is that it is not dewy enough. BUT:
a) it has luxurious packaging
b) a lot of shades
c) medium to full coverage, very buildable
d) very good staying power
e) ideal for combination/dry/sensitive skin.
I apply it with Sigma F80 or F88. I think these brushes have the best result.
I will buy it again and i recommend it.

This foundation is very light coverage with a matte finish. This foundation left my skin looking very dull and therefore I wouldn't buy again.

I don't normally wear foundation over the colder months (just NARS tinted mosituriser) as my skin tends to get really dry & flaky during winter. I wanted a something with more coverage & yet lightweight so I picked up this YSL touche Eclat foundation after hearing (and reading) so many rave reviews.
The first couple of times that I used it, my skin looked patchy and made my dry spots even more pronounced. My skin didn't look luminous and it became cakey as the day progressed - I hated it. So I tried mixing it with my mosituriser before applying which helped but it kinda defeats the purpose of it being a foundation.
After heaps of trial and error, I managed to get this foundation working for me and this how I apply the foundation now. Slather on tonnes of heavy duty moisturiser right before applying the foundation (I use Clinique Moisture Surge Intense). I use 1 tiny spuirt of the product and apply it starting from the centre of the face outwards using a foundation brush. Once everything is blended well, I use my fingers to further blend it in. Short gentle strokes works best in this case. Wait for at least a minute before brushing on the tiniest amount of loose or finishing powder that doesn't contain any sheen. If it still appears dry (or cakey), spray on a small amount of face mist.
I must admit that I like how natural & slightly polished my skin looks, and it does not feel heavy. Coverage is light as I only use a small amount and the staying power of this foundation is average. But bear in mind I have only tried it during this winter season and I really hope it will perform well in summer or in hotter climates. At the moment, I don't love this foundation and I am only trying to make the best out of this expensive bottle. Fingers crossed, I might change my mind

This is a gorgeous foundation. The finish is so natural and I feel like I look healthy when I'm wearing this. I need a powder over this foundation though as the finish is quite dewy. I have the YSL radiance powder in the gold box which I sometimes use but I also have a MAC powder called skin finish mineralize powder which I find excellent. This makeup stays on my face all day and I haven't retouched it from 8am when I get up and get ready for work until 10/11pm when I go to bed.
Today was my fourth day wearing a full face of this foundation. I received samples of this from a very generous and helpful SA in my local Department Store. She gave me enough for ten days I think. I will definitely be purchasing. I prefer pretty full coverage foundations so initially I thought this might be a bit too sheer for me. (I am prone to nasty persistent break-outs around my mouth and on my chin and need to cover them up). Happily, I find that the coverge is buildable and I just apply an extra layer on my cheeks and around my mouth. I still use a concealer though, on the blemishes as the foundation doesn't completely cover them (but I'm a realist and not expecting miracles). I apply the foundation with a flat foundation brush and it goes on so nicely and easily.
I was a devoted user of the YSL radiant brush perfect touch foundation but I've been converted. The Teint Touche Eclat just glides onto the skin and I don't feel as though I am pulling or dragging the skin when blending/applying this foundation. It definitely has a lighter and, in my opinion, nicer consistency than the radiant brush foundation and having used this for a few days now I'm in no hurry to give it up. Great product.

Glad I didn't purchase before trying . Made my skin itch and blotchy .

Bought this in the autumn last year and it is very nice.I have the shade B50 and this seems to suit my fair skin tone fine. It applies very nicely and isn't as rich as the Vitalumiere by Chanel .This is not a bad thing as when i feel that my skin isn't so thirsty for moisture i apply this instead so i have the best of both worlds really.The packaging is sleek and it is a very sturdy glass container(as i found out when i dropped it onto my toe-ouch)!

-Great staying power
-Won't accentuate dryness
-Has a pump
-Has a very small amount of sunscreen (it seems reductive to only have an SPF of 19)
I wanted to try this foundation for the longest time, but I was always worried that I would spend the money and not like it. The bottle comes with a pump which makes this more sanitary, and less messy. I wear this in a Beige color (B50 it says on the bottom of the bottle), and the shade match is perfect. When I first used this I noticed a scent, I can't put my finger on what it is though. I'm almost positive it's the sunscreen in this that causes the scent. Either way the scent does not linger on the skin once applied. This foundation is very lightweight and has a thin consistency so I expected it to be extremely sheer. When I applied it, most of my acne scarring and discolorations were almost completely concealed. Now that I use this foundation I find myself using less concealer than I ever have with any other foundation. Even though the coverage is great it doesn't feel or look heavy. I have very dry skin but this never accentuated it. I also can become oily around my T-zone throughout the day, but this foundation never separates, fades or oxidizes. I also didn't break out after wearing this. There is sunscreen in this foundation, but it's a small amount so I continue to wear sunscreen under this. Overall this foundation has great coverage, looks natural, feels light and has great staying power I will definitely be repurchasing in the future.

This is my holy grail foundation! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ This is flawless in a bottle. I have normal skin and not a lot of blemishes but do have a few freckles and this stuff just glides on like a dream! I have tried loads of foundation including mac, dior forever, chanel, dior air flash ysl teint resist and nothing compares! It's build able coverage. I don't even have to use a concealer or primer that's how good it is. A must have!
