YSL Skincare Review
YSL beauty is an iconic brand renowned for blending Parisian heritage with bold and modern aesthetics.
This beauty brand sought to build rapport with millennials by featuring company executives Pecheux and Gerber in a road trip video, using it to educate millennials about IPV (Intimate Partner Abuse). Additionally, this platform served as a way for them to inform them about warning signs of IPV (Intimate Partner Violence).
1. Touche Eclat Foundation
Touche Eclat foundation from French brand Yves Saint Laurent promises to offer luminous, radiant coverage that reduces shadows and imperfections, with warm neutral, and cool tones available in its shade range – with only B40 matching my skin tone perfectly; however it oxidizes over time into something darker than originally seen in its container.
This foundation offers medium, breathable coverage that’s buildable. Packed with the illuminating pigments from Touche Eclat highlighters, your skin will appear natural but with a healthy glow. Furthermore, skincare ingredients such as ruscus extract and vitamin E help soothe and brighten the complexion for maximum effect. Non-comedogenic, oil-free and dermatologist-tested, it is available for sale now at Sephora, Hudson’s Bay and Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.
I have been using the reformulated version of this foundation for several years and find that it’s my go-to on most days. It doesn’t emphasize my pores or fine lines as much, lasts longer on my skin, and doesn’t look quite as dewy or hydrating but does hold up well throughout the day.
YSL Foundation comes in three shades – BD, BR and B – designed for different skin undertones. If your complexion contains golden undertones then Beige Diore should be applied; Beige Radiant works for pink tones while B is meant for neutral tones such as Kate Bosworth or Sofia Coppola who use this product!
The YSL Touche Eclat foundation can be easily applied with either your fingertips or a beauty blender, though I recommend the latter due to the even, flawless finish it creates on my skin and its non-heavy, sticky feel. For fingertips users, try placing several drops onto your face before spreading with fingertips for optimal results.
2. All Hours Foundation
All Hours foundation from YSL is one of their best-selling options, offering buildable medium to full coverage that effectively conceals imperfections and fine lines while the natural matte finish withstands sweat and humidity for an appearance that stays just-applied for an entire day.
This foundation contains black tea antioxidants to provide additional skin-care benefits, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin as it will not irritate or clog pores. Furthermore, it is oil-free, non comedogenic, dermatologist tested and features a UV filter to provide added environmental pollution protection.
Finding your foundation shade is of utmost importance! In-person trials or ton-match sites such as Findation may help determine your perfect hue; otherwise it could end up not looking right! Nothing worse than wearing something that doesn’t suit you so it is imperative that you get properly matched!
YSL recently revised their All Hours Foundation with an advanced skincare-infused formula for improved coverage and ease of application, lasting for 24 hours of full coverage and boasting natural-luminous matte look and second skin feel. Comprised of 77% skincare ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid for all-day hydration. With skin-on-skin feeling that makes this foundation seem invisible yet it covers imperfections effortlessly.
All Hours foundation is simple to apply using either a brush or makeup sponge, and comes in an elegant heavy frosted glass bottle – which may make you feel luxurious while using it! Plus it features a pump which makes dispensing just the right amount easy!
This foundation is ideal for daily wear or layering with concealer for an added boost of polish. I found the All Hours foundation an absolute beauty essential that never lets me down and is an indispensable addition to my makeup collection – let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
3. Hydra Radiance Cream
No one disputes that YSL makes some of the finest makeup products available today; their luxurious lipsticks and concealers have long been fan favourites, while their moisturizers and face masks provide your skin with the glow it deserves – thanks to ingredients such as ginger root for radiance enhancement and 5-hydra complex for relieving tightness or dryness, these face creams ensure glowing and healthy-looking skin!
One of the most sought-after products from YSL’s facial care range, Hydra Radiance Cream is clinically proven to nourish and hydrate skin overnight. Formulated by experts in skin nutrition with natural origin ingredients and hardworking skin nutrients for maximum effect, this moisturiser can benefit all skin types – perfect if you want a splash of shine added to your look!
Another fantastic way to boost your glow with YSL serums, specifically tailored for specific skin issues. For instance, their Pure Shots Hydra Bounce Essence-in-Lotion can combat dullness and pore congestion while their Glow In Balm evens out your complexion for radiant looking skin.
Yves Saint Laurent have recently unveiled their NU Collection of makeup-skincare hybrid products, such as Perfect Plumper Face Cream and Hydra Radiance Moisturizer as well as four easy-to-use serums known as Pure Shots made with natural plant extracts – perfect additions to any skincare regime!
YSL Cosmetics offer not only makeup and skincare products, but they are renowned for their beautiful collection of perfumes ranging from sweet to musky to floral fragrances – offering something suitable for every taste! Additionally, their Touche Eclat beauty wand provides luminosity to your look whether under concealer or worn alone for a natural looking glow.
4. Pure Shots
Pure Shots is a collection of four easy-to-use serums, creams and essences tailored specifically to address specific skincare concerns. Their flagship product is Night Reboot Serum; an innovative bi-phase formula combining glycolic acid solution with soothing oil and Moroccan Moonlight Cactus Flower extract (which only blooms for six hours each year). Together these ingredients chemically exfoliate while protecting new cells against oxidative stress; leaving skin smoother and more radiant.
Lines Away Serum is another serum designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while simultaneously softening skin texture. Its key active ingredient, Hexapeptide-4, has been demonstrated to boost production of peptides and collagen within skin tissue; additionally, Hexylresorcinol provides powerful anti-wrinkle benefits by targeting their source: skin dryness and loss of elasticity.
Light Up Brightening Serum is a serum designed to reduce dark spots and discoloration for an even complexion, using marshmallow flower extract and Vitamin Cg as key ingredients that work together to brighten dull skin while acting as a barrier against pollution, UV rays and other environmental stressors that contribute to pigmentation issues.
I love that these products come in glass bottles – their luxurious packaging feels luxurious while simultaneously being eco-friendly without compromising performance. Furthermore, their refillable design means you win both personally and ecologically!
The range is available both online and in-store at YSL Beauty, starting with 1oz samples of Night Reboot for PS65 to full-sized bottles of Lines Away at $88 each. Complete sets including Perfect Plumper Face Cream and Hydra Bounce Essence-In-Lotion can also be purchased for PS120 each.
