Love it: Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer

I recently had the most amazing, super luxe, whirlwind trip to Sydney with YSL Beauty, visiting their Studio Lumiere at Vogue’s VFNO and then spending a night in the gorgeous The Langham Sydney hotel. Believe me I felt very lucky, and had a right whale of a time!
Prior to leaving Yves Saint Laurent Beauty’s very thoughtful PR woman, Rachel sent me a wee bag of YSL essentials in travel sizes. Some I had tried (and loved) but a new one on my radar was the Touche Éclat Blur Primer, which I am now officially in love with.
The Touche Éclat Blur Primer is a new illuminating primer that promises to blur the appearance of imperfections while boosting the radiance of your foundation, and it does. This is by combining the light of the original Touche Éclat and the perfecting effect of blur, and it looks just heavenly with swirls of gold flecks. Formulated with four nourishing oils (corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil), it leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft without greasy residue, and it makes makeup application a total breeze. Free of dulling opaque fillers, the transparent texture is available in one universal shade with the aforementioned subtle sparkles of golden light for maximum luminosity. Pores seriously seem to be minimised, skin texture feels like velvet – Holy Grail of primers or what?
Mine was just a travel size with an applicator but the full size comes housed in the most gorgeous clear glass pump (above) to fully showcase the clear primer base and tiny flecks of gold. Beautiful! You really need the smallest amount to do your entire face, so it will go a long way too.
It can be applied under foundation to create a perfect canvas or worn alone for a natural glow-y look, and is easy to use with a brush or fingers. Apply with gentle sweeping motions from the centre of the face outward, then leave to melt into skin for 10 seconds before applying foundation.
Truly magical.
