If you had told me six (6) months ago that my skin would be dry/normal enough to test out non-mattifying, dare I say dewy, foundations, I would call you crazy! However, that's exactly what I have been doing and what I'm doing again on another episode of Foundation Friday! Today, I'm testing out the @yslbeauty Touche Eclat All-in-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer ($48 for 1.01 ounces at @sephora). What it claims:
🔘 A skin-loving, all-in-one tinted moisturizer
🔘 Evens complexion
🔘 Smooths fine lines
🔘 Natural, luminous finish
🔘 Oil-free, noncomedogenic, talc-free and dermatologist-tested
🔘 Coverage is buildable from light to medium
👍🏻👎🏻 This has a fragrance, but I don't find it overpowering or unpleasant.
🔘 I used B30 Almond, the lightest shade provided in the sample trio, and it was a little dark, but since it's a lighter coverage, it didn't look bad.
👍🏻 I didn't use a primer because I wanted to see how it looked with unfilled pores and fine lines. Thankfully, it blurred my pores, so I don't think a primer is necessary with this product.
👍🏻👎🏻 There are only twelve (12) shades in the collection. Even though the coverage is light and that means the shades are more forgiving, it still isn't sufficient.
🔘 I set my under eyes, forehead, nose and chin because I still get oily in my t-zone and wanted to give this product the best chance for success.
👍🏻 I used one of my current favorite foundation brushes to apply it (the @ecotools Wonder Cover Complexion Brush ($8.99 at @ultabeauty)) and it blended out beautifully to a low medium, glowy coverage.
👍🏻 I used a cream bronzer, blush and highlight and they applied seamlessly on top.
👍🏻👎🏻 It has settled slightly into my nose and chin creases and fine lines in my forehead.
👍🏻👎🏻 My skin has felt hydrated all day long, but that also means it has remained slightly tacky to the touch.
👍🏻👎🏻 Around hour four (4), I noticed that my nose was getting a oily. However, I would prefer that over it looking dry.
👍🏻 Seven (7) hours in, I don't notice any fading.
