YSL Touché Eclat Blur Perfector

Well, I know I am quick on my feet for a new release, but there was literally dust flying as I ran to Selfridges to grab the newest launch from YSL Beauty. I’m having a mini love affair with YSL lately and I find that the brand ticks all the boxes. The packaging, the concepts and the advertorials have me craving for the pretties. This purchase is blamed on Sali Hughes and I have told her this. If Sali says something is a game changer, I am pretty inclined to agree with her as I trust her opinion, and frankly if it she was to say it was crap, I’d believe her. A few select people have had advance previews of the YSL Touché Eclat Blur Perfector, the newest release in the Touché Eclat family, and I have been desperate to get my mitts on it.

YSL Touché Eclat has been repurchased more times than I care to remember and since its launch several years ago, it has been deceiving people into thinking I’m wide awake and full of verve and vigour when really I’m fatigued and not interested. It’s the perfect air hostesses tool to disguise those eye bags at 3am so when I heard of the new additions to the Touché Eclat range, I needed them. Right now! The new products consist of the Touché Eclat Blurring Primer (which reminds me of Smashbox Photo Finish but with gold flecks suspended in the silicone based primer) and the Touché Eclat Blur Perfector.

The pale pink and gold packaging screams luxury and YSL have ensured that the compact stays scratch free by providing a blue velvet pouch and leather backed puff for on the go applications. The YSL Touché Eclat Blur Perfector itself is quite a unique product and the balm powder is not only for use prior to makeup application but for over the top of make up throughout the day. You can feel the silicone in the balm and it does settle onto the face as a silky powder that I could feel on my skin for the majority of the day. For the purposes of my review, I did top up throughout the day but I really didn’t think I needed too.

I use the Hourglass Mineral Veil every day, so I substituted this for the YSL Touché Eclat Blur Perfector. I think it works along the same lines and leaves that veil finish across the skin so you look flawless. I have small lines by the sides of my eyes, and whilst they smoothed them slightly, it didn’t totally get rid of them. I wasn’t expecting miracles! It feels more balmy on the skin than powdery, but you can feel how it transforms on the skin. It’s like having an invisible foundation that perfects the skin and boosts your complexion.

I’m glad that I only bought the YSL Touché Eclat Blur Perfector as I think having both products on my face may be a bit too much. The Blur Perfector gives a fantastic finish, so much so that I didn’t even feel bad that I’d left my Hourglass Veil, which is my Holy Grail, sat on my dressing table untouched. My only negative is that I needed to powder by my eyes as I couldn’t get a hold on my eyelid to hold it taut to draw on my winged liner. That’s a First World Problem if ever I did hear one!

The new YSL Touché Eclat Blur Perfector and Blurring Primer are available now in Selfridges from £31.50

        Ah that’s it! Thanks xx

  • kimberley

    Ting – do you mean Dr feelgood? That’s what I thought as soon as I read it!


  • I’m feeling a surge of YSL love as well. Mostly I’ve only shopped their lip products but I recently picked up the Chinese New Year palette (which is taking forever to get to me). The packaging is stunning. This does remind me of a few similar products like the Mally Skin Perfector and the Covergirl dupe, which I do own. I wonder how it would compare…

      • Hi lovely!

        I have only just got round to responding to my comments, I am terrible aren’t I!

        I haven’t got any of the packaging or leaflets, they went straight in the bin 🙁

        I’ve been looking online but I can’t find one anywhere. Sorry lovely xx

  • Both sound so promising. Yup, can’t wait to try them out! Your lay-out looks very familiar, lol.

    It does sound like Dr feel good, when I worked for benefit cosmetics I sold about 3000000 of them because it was pre- primer days, they don’t make it anymore though I don’t think, I religiously use nars as my mineral veil but I am intrigued to try this but I would have the same problem with the eye area as I love my winged liner!
