Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation

YSL's bestselling foundation, and undoubtedly one of the most iconic foundations in the world, the Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation is a full-coverage formulation that leaves skin flawless and glowing.

Infused with the radiant light from the original Touche Éclat illuminating pen, the foundation leaves skin with a healthy yet natural glow. It contains unique pigments that provide incredible luminosity without compromising on longevity, making it incredibly long-lasting.

It feels weightless on the skin, especially when applied with the YSL Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation Brush, which buffs it into the skin for a seamless and perfected finish.


Touche Éclat Le Cushion

Cushion foundations are gaining popularity thanks to their handy on-the-go packaging housed with lighter weight formulations of their original counterparts.

The Touche Éclat Le Cushion has a light yet buildable formulation, and is great to touch-up the original Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation when travelling.

It gives a beautifully natural and luminous glow, packed with hydration to keep your skin comfortable throughout wear. Its lightweight texture makes it perfect for anyone looking for a "no makeup makeup" look, or a touch-up foundation if you're heading from day to night.

All Hours Foundation

YSL's All Hours Foundation has a velvety-matte finish; staying put for 24 hours, it takes you from day to night seamlessly without budging, as it's name suggests.

It's oil-free formulation is what gives it its incredible longevity, alongside being both waterproof and transfer-resistant. Even though it gives skin a matte finish, it doesn't ever look flat or mask-like on the skin, and instead perfects, evens and smooths out uneven tone and pigmentation.

Enriched with a unique skincare complex, which has been dermatologically tested (and so great for use on sensitive skin types) it also has a UV filter to help shield your skin against environmental aggressors.

We like to apply the All Hours Primer beforehand for an even more long-lasting and mattified finish.

Fusion Ink Foundation

Fusion Ink Foundation is the perfect YSL foundation for those with oily skin who want a natural face base that doesn't feel heavy or sticky. It's made with pure, milled pigments that each have a unique micro-coating; responsible for melting the foundation into the skin for a flawless and seamless finish.

It contains a unique blend of actives which work together to keep the makeup in place for 24 hours and both mattify and hydrate the skin at the same time. This ensures the foundation looks natural and doesn't cake throughout the day.

Best suited for oily skin, the foundation can be mixed with the Touche Éclat Blur Primer for an illuminated finish if you have normal or sensitised skin.

Fusion Cushion Foundation

If you love the YSL Fusion Ink Foundation, you will adore the brand's Cushion version, which combines the same mattifying properties as the original liquid, but has a fresh finish that is perfect for on-the-go touch-ups.

It has an almost-cooling sensation when applied, and beautifully buildable coverage for you to create and customise your perfect face base. You can either use the sponge puff that comes with the cushion compact or use your favourite foundation brush. Either way, the foundation applies effortlessly and blends into the skin for a flawless finish.

We love to use the Fusion Cushion Foundation when we want to mattify our complexion without it looking flat; making it the perfect face base for going from day to night.
