I was sent the “it” products of the summer. This stuff is selling out everywhere and I was lucky to have it sent to me from Influenster (I received it complimentary for testing purposes). I’ve been using the primer and blur perfector for a couple of weeks so let me explain a little bit about them!
First of all the packaging is beautiful and right in step with the rest of YSL products. My mom has their concealer pen which is absolutely amazing so I had high hopes for these products.
The blur primer is pretty great. You just need a little dabble or it could make you feel greasy. I love these gold shimmery flakes in the bottle. It’s oil based and really does smooth your skin, but again, only use a little bit. I think that it did make my skin look more luminous but it definitely couldn’t counteract the redness from rosacea so just keep that in mind if you also struggle with strong discoloration like I do. It also has a really nice lightly floral scent. Overall I think that it did help my makeup stay in place and go on smooth. The other product is the Touche Eclat Blur Perfector. It’s a balm that supposedly turns into a powder to blur your imperfections. Well I have to say that I was serioulsy disappointed when I placed it on with the puff they give you and it literally WIPED my makeup off. No matter how gentle your touch it would wipe everything off.
I tried it with a large powder brush and had way better luck just patting around, almost as a highlighter. I’ve been doing this for several days and really prefer this method. It gives a little luminosity without wiping off your foundation.
Have you tried this products yet? I’m interested to hear what you think about them. To see what others think follow along with #YSLToucheEclat on facebook, twitter and instagram!
Thanks to influenster for sending these products for testing.
