Love it: Yves Saint Laurent Les Sahariennes

It might have a rather lengthy name, but Yves Saint Laurent Les Sahariennes Healthy Glow Balm-Powder is quite the beauty revelation, and perfect for this time of year in particular!
A revolutionary balm-to-powder formula that delivers a natural looking, sun kissed glow, it comes in the signature gold Yves Saint Laurent compact packaging and does some rather wonderful things.
Essentially, YSL has reinvented bronzing – and flawlessness - with the first healthy glow blur in a compact. From contouring to a gentle sun kissed brush of bronze, it is a multi-tasking bronzing palette that is super-soft on application and melts into skin, perfectly recreating a natural sun kiss of colour.
I love the fact that the formula is never muddy or overly shimmery, it just makes your complexion look immediately refined: pores appear diminished, imperfections are disguised, your skin feels smoother and more radiant all round. In other words: like you, but much, much better!
Available in six universal and wearable shades to match any complexion, it comes with a dual-ended applicator that can be used to create two signature finishes. You can wear it sheer using the brush or build up to a more extreme contoured look using the sponge if that is what you require, or use the brush in the hollows of your cheeks for even greater definition. I’ve been using the sponge all over for a warm glow, moving outwards from the centre of my face to keep things natural and fresh. It leaves a silky matte finish that is super flattering rather than chalky, and it is non-comedogenic and has been tested under dermatological control for those with problem or sensitive skin.
Available right now with an RRP of $105.00, it is really is the perfect product to introduce at this time of year when you’re skin is feeling sallow or a little dull. If the sun isn’t coming then let the sun come to you I say, and this little marvel does that in the most natural looking way possible. Love it.
