Hey Everyone!!! For all you girls out there looking for a truly illuminating, flawless foundation, you’ve found the right post!!!
What It Is
This YSL Foundation is a 9/10 for anyone with dry to normal skin. I have combination skin, and without applying primer and setting powder, this will disappear from my face within 3 hours!! Crazy, right?? Well, paired with Make Up For HD Primer in Caramel (Caramel for combating dull brown skin) and Make Up Forever HD Translucent Powder, this can last up to 9 hours! I only retouch once or twice throughout the day, just be careful not to touch your face too often, because it does rub off (though not too easily).
Who It’s For
The coverage is light to medium, and you should use a concealer if you need to, before you apply this foundation, but after your primer (always start with moisturizer and primer). Concealers are generally thicker in consistency and won’t rub off when you apply foundation, whereas concealer will rub off your foundation if foundation is applied first. Also, by covering major trouble spots with concealer first, you are likely to apply less foundation because all major *flaws* are gone! So, you won’t have a “mask” of foundation on. This makes for a more natural, fresh and polished look.
This YSL Foundation is a 9/10 for anyone with dry to normal skin, but a 6/10 for oily skin. I have combination skin, but I always use foundation and a good, trustworthy setting powder (MUFE HD Translucent Powder & NYC Translucent Powder are both great!!! Will be reviewing soon). I gave it a 6/10 for oily skin, but if you don’t really mind retouching with powder often, this will look just as amazing on you as it does on less oily skin.For those with sensitive skin, this is not likely to aggravate it.
From porcelain to ebony skin tones, you can find your match!! There are even peach, gold and beige undertones; this makes matching even easier! I have medium brown, Asian skin and finding the perfect shade match isnt always easy. However, it took me less than five minutes to find the perfect shade at Sephora. My color is B70, pictured below swatched and blended on my arm. When blended, it leaves your skin looking flawless. I absolutely love the illuminating effect it gives!
Overall, this is worth being purchased and, even if you have oily skin, this is great if re-touching with powder throughout the day isn’t a hassle for you! It gives a nice, professional, dewy (not shiny) look, and it will not aggravate sensitive skin.
