I am perpetually in search of the perfect foundation, but in reality I think I am turning into a product junkie. I've gone into Sephora so many times and for one reason or another have never tried YSL's products aside from lip gloss/lipstick.
I got this in B90, which is the darkest shade it comes in, and I've got to admit that I am quite close to declaring a new favorite foundation. I'd formerly been a devotee to NARS Sheer Glow (Tortuga) because of it's beautiful luminous finish. This absolutely rivals the finish of my former favorite, I applied with a beauty blender and lightly stippled onto my skin.
The coverage is sheer and luminous and just provides a look of natural radiating beauty, and gives enough dimension that I don't feel the need to highlight areas of my face. I really appreciate the look of naturally radiant and clear skin that this foundation gives.
I did notice a scent when applying, but it dissipated quickly. As I mentioned previously, if you have blemishes or dark spots, those will need to be concealed before applying foundation because this does not provide opaque coverage. The formula also feels fairly runny, so I do not foresee this lending itself well to layering. Another thing worth mentioning is that if you have oily skin you'll need a primer to address that, as this is not a foundation with any oil control. I had to blot about 7 hours after applying, as my nose was getting noticeably slick. That all being said, I got a full day of wear out of this foundation.
The price might be a bit high for some, at $55 at Sephora or YSL counters, but I find that to be completely reasonable for a luxury brand. The packaging is a a glass bottle with a pump, which I haven't had issues with, but might present an issue if you plan on traveling with it. This is most definitely going to be a product I will buy over again.

It might be too early to say, just because I've only been using this foundation for a week but I love it! I love the finish and for me it is a nice dewy radiant finish. Most foundations always leave my T-zone oily and dirty but this is perfect for me! I use it with touche eclat and le teint touche eclat compact to powder my t-zone and it lasts a good 6-8 hours. One of my holy grail and will buy again definitely!

This foundation is amazing, I have tried every single high end foundation there is. Literally, every last one.
This one, in my opinion is by far the best foundation I've ever tried.
I use it with Smashbox hydrating primer and it stays all day, and I can't believe I am saying this but it actually looks BETTER as time goes on.
It wears all day at my work with bright bright ugly lighting and it looks amazing.
So glad I've found this product, but it's so expensive. :(
But soo good. I have dry skin and it does not dry it out, it really is illuminating and pretty!
Dare I say, HG foundation!

This foundation is the best ever. I wear br30 and it's beautiful. It wears well, never oxidizes even without primer. I am sad that it contains bismuth oxychloride because I kind of feel like that makes my chin area itchy especially toward the end of the day. But it's a great, beautiful, long lasting, LIGHT foundation. Not for guys/girls who like heavier coverage!

I really like this foundation. I have dry/normal skin and wear shade B40 which really livens up my complexion. I wear NC20 in mac - I could go to an NC25, but then it looks too yellow. This foundation is good because it's quite sheer, so you don't need to be too particular when it comes to choosing a shade. It doesn't cover imperfections but it makes my skin look really luminous and natural. I don't think it would last too well on people with oily skin without a primer and a good powder on top. The packaging is of wonderful quality and looks really gorgeous too.

I wanted to love this! I love Touche Eclat Radiant consealer for under eyes so I thought this would work too. Ok, when you first put this on, it gives you nice healthy glow. It reminds me of Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I liked it and the color match was just right. So it looks good for maybe an hour. Then It tightens on my skin a little. Not so much that I look terrible, but not so radiant like when I first put it on. Then after about 3 hours it is mostly gone from my face and touching up is needed, even if I use primer. Loose powder helps but not much. Coverage is light or light medium when it lasts. I think it is too expensive and now I mix it with my other foundation since I am stuck with it. Don't buy it unless you try it.

I was in search of a foundation that has light to medium coverage, doesn't make my face look cakey and overdone, and also evens out my skin-tone. As a woman of colour this can be a hard task because companies tend to have the wrong undertone (too red, too yellow) or a very limited shade range. I asked this pretty mua in Sephora what she was wearing and she pointed me into the direction of YSL. I was unfamiliar with what the brand had to offer as far as foundation but was surprised to see they have a few shades for woman of colour. I got shade Beige 80 which has golden mahogany tones (ysl describes) and I used a pump in store and noticed the foundation effortlessly blended into my skin. This is a product that you need 2 pumps of and your all set. The price had me stuttering ($62 CAD) and I debated so hard about purchasing. I made a good decision, is is my favourite foundation. If you have oily skin you prob won't enjoy this because it has an illuminizer within it. I have combination skin so it works just fine for me. People complain about the longevity of the product but I have never had a problem with the lasting power. The only thing is i may have to blot my nose once after application and i have had to do that with any foundation I have ever used. This product is light weight and beautiful and i think worth a try to get a sample if you have great skin and just are looking to even out your skin tone. I have a video about this check it out if you are interested! http://youtu.be/KByzSUR6JkY

So, this stuff is like magic in a bottle. I am on a never-ending search for a foundation that both has that elusive dewy finish (I hate matte) and also doesn't break me out terribly. Usually, those glowy sorts of foundations have something in them (oil? silicones?) that sends my complexion into some form of acne-bombarded tizzy. This one doesn't do that. It reminds me strongly or another favorite of mine, the ByTerry liquid foundation. Fortunately for me, the YSL formula doesn't break me out the way that one does.
I am super duper pale with ruddy cheeks from rosacea. I wear the Beige Rose 20. They run very pale, FYI. I love the color I got. It blends in very well and doesn't oxidize into any shade of weird orange. One word of caution though--you really must buff this stuff in or it will sit on top of your skin in an unflattering way. At least, that's my experience. The first time I wore it, I was sort of sad that it looked pretty but felt greasy. The next time, I pulled out a buffing brush and really worked it into my skin. It was like a whole different experience. Lovely. Perhaps the most glowing endorsement was from my sweet husband who told me in a befuddled sort of way that my skin looked "pretty and glimmery" today. I'll take it!

This foundation is amazing it feels lovely really light but gives great coverage.I have probably tried every foundation and this by far the best I have tried.I would highly recommend this to anyone.

This foundation has a light coverage, but you can layer it and thus reach a medium coverage. It blends quite well and gives a natural glow to the skin. If you want to tone it down, you can apply a mattifying powder on the key areas. I have combination skin and I can wear it without a powder on top, exept the very hot summer days, when I need a face primer and a powder.
Another good thing is that this product does not break me out and it has a very good packaging with a pump, so the product remains uncontaminated until you use it up.
The only dissadvantage I find is that it has a glass bottle, so it might be difficult to travel with it.
