This may possibly be my new favorite primer. I am a primer junkie. They make all the difference in the world when it comes to makeup, and being very oily, I cannot live without them. I’ve raved before about the Hourglass Oil-Free Mineral Veil Primer and the Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Primer. But today, I want to rave about the YSL Beauty Touche Éclat Blur Primer.
I received a deluxe sample of this in my Sephora 500-Point YSL Beauty Box. I had serious doubts about this one because if you look carefully, you’ll see particles of glitter. Also, the primer didn’t emphasize how great it’d be for the oily-skin. But it did promise a blurring effect of skin imperfections, and that’s what primers are all about.
Without expecting much, I gave it a go and wow was I impressed! Makeup lasted so long and my skin looked so smooth. Also, the glitters are not visible but your face does give off a nice sheen of glow. And being oily, I am always worried about looking too shiny- but you won’t have that problem here!
What further confirmed my love for this thing was when I had to work as a makeup artist for a day, and on all of my models (actresses), I started the makeup using this base. From dry skin to oily skin, their makeup lasted the whole day! And their skin looked beautiful when I used this primer. It erases fine lines and pores, and keeps the makeup going all day. I even had some of them ask me what primer I was using, and of course without hesitation, I introduced them to it.
Though this is only a deluxe sample size, it is lasting me quite awhile. But once I’m running low on it, I plan to get the full size.
