YSL Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Primer

I’m not a fan of silicone based primers, however I thought I would give this a try as I received it as part of a try me bag through my work.

I’ve never got on with silicone primers, mainly as it clogs my pores resulting in breakouts, slides my makeup around in oily places and just makes my makeup sit very poorly. However, I love trying things and being proved wrong and finding new things to use.

This primer retails for £32 for 30ml, comes in a glass bottle with gold lid which sits very nicely next to other YSL products.

YSL Yves Saint Laurent, Le Teint Encre De Peau, Fusion Ink Foundation Review!

So after receiving a sample and using it twice I thought I’d treat myself to the foundation when it was launched in Boots Cardiff. I  chose the colour BD40 which is slightly lighter than my skin tone, which is how I prefer my foundation to be, and managed to get £10 worth of points if I purchased another item which was silly to turn down.

I did like using the sample, however, upon using this foundation more I have mixed feelings on it. Why? Avoid if you have dry, flakey skin or are unable to exfoliate often.

Price: £30.50

Time Trialed: 3 weeks.

YSL Yves Saint Laurent, Gloss Volupte Lip Gloss Review!

The new YSL Gloss Volupte lip gloss line is one word; Stunning. The packaging, feel, sent and lasting colour is amazing.

I picked up the shade 209 Smoking at work while waiting for a friend to purchase a lip gloss herself, this was an impulse buy but it is one that certainly is worth the money.

The idea with 3 of the lip glosses are to use them as topcoats to change the look of your lips or lipstick, the others in the collection you can use as stand alone lip glosses with gold shimmers or use them to enhance your lipsticks.

There are 23 shades in the collection.



Price: RRP £21.


Time Trailed: 2 days, one while out in the night and throughout the following day.
