Yves Saint Laurent 'Perfect Touch' Radiant Brush Foundation
NEEDS MORE PIGMENT
THIS IS NOT FOR ANYONE NEEDING COVERAGE. I FOUND THE CONSISTENCY THIN, AND EVEN USING THE BRUSH, STREAKY. THINK THIN WATERCOLOR FOR FACE. IF YOU WANT A THIN WASH OF COLOR, BECAUSE YOU HAVE GREAT SKIN, BUT WANT A BIT OR REFINEMENT THEN THIS IS A MATCH.
The quality of the foundation is wonderful but too much comes out because of the brush. I returned because too much gets wasted.
I've been using this foundation for 2 years now and always got compliments on how great my skin is. The product goes on sheer to medium coverage. It covers my pores, even out my skin tone even though i have a mild case of rosacia and gives me a natural glow. The only thing that I don't like about this product is the brush. I can't control the flow of foundation and it's just messy. However, I was able to pop out the brush. Still, I wish YSL would change the packaging to a pump bottle.
This foundation is EXCELLENT. It is extremely lightweight and the only color that matches my skin PERFEFCTLY. I wear #2 BLOND. I am extremely fair skinned but I also have yellow undertones. Because I am multi-racial (mother is French, English, German, Iroquois Indian, father is half Mexican, half Spanish) it is next to impossible to just buy one foundation that matches my skin perfectly. I usually have to buy two and mix them. Even make-up artists say my hue is very different (I can wear foundation made for asian skin).
I don't feel like I am wearing anything on my face and it lasts all day. I constantly get complements on how my skin just glows. Of course it is a combination of vitamins and great products...but I know the foundation contributes as well. This is for the woman that wants to look polished and pristine.
NOTE: I have been using this foundation for the past 4 years (ever since it was released) and I CUT THE BRUSH OFF on every bottle. The brush is DUMB and just wastes the product. It is much more effective to apply with your hands. That is really the only negative about this product but completely fixable.
