New from YSL


When I see the Yves Saint Laurent logo imprinted on a gold makeup compact one thing always springs to mind & thats Luxury. I was recently treated to a personal consultation with a YSL expert who introduced me to their hot new products, all of which are encased in gold, bearing the three initials that represent French sophistication.

One of YSL’s latest is the ‘Le Teint Touche Eclat Compact’ & for those of you who dont read French, thats the ‘Illuminating Powder Finish Foundation’. Technology with foundation & powders has gone beyond rocket science these days & I am continually amazed at how many new foundations hit the market each year. Some are brilliant & some just average, but Im always one to pass fair judgement as I think it depends entirely on your skin & what suits you personally.

This new product looks like a pressed powder but acts like a foundation & it comes in a gorgeous slimline gold compact (see pic to the left!). You can apply it with the small square sponge that comes in the case, or alternatively use a soft brush or powder puff for the same effect . I initially applied Le Teint over a liquid foundation & found it leaves a very velvety finish, cutting back shine while adding extra coverage. I then tried it over the top of  YSL’s new BB Cream (which is also fab) & was impressed to see that it evened out the skin tone & covered any imperfections quite easily, so no extra foundation was needed. I love the lightness of the powder & the way it melts into the skin, leaving a lovely luminous finish. I used this new powder on the model in this gorgeous image above from Adrienne Winkelmanns new campaign & I have also taken to keeping it in my personal makeup purse for regular touchups. Apart from being so easy to use, it also has quite a large & handy mirror…. (call me vain, it comes with the territory!)

YSL have also put out a fantastic range of reasonably priced makeup brushes that are well up to any professionals standard. I particularly loved the long black handles that felt ergonomically correct in my hand & the shapes & sizes were all perfectly designed to apply makeup like a pro.

All in One BB Creme comes in light & medium, RRP $79 on counter now. Illuminating Powder Foundation available in five shades, $79 & on counter from the 24th June.

Heres my gorgeous, personally engraved lipstick case- a special gift from YSL! xx
