YSL Touch Eclait

YSL Touch Eclait Full Coverage Foundation

After my Tarte Amazonian Clay disaster, my search for a new foundation continued. Along the way I’ve discovered two ‘drugstore’ options I’m crazy about (expect reviews of those soon). But today I’m talking about YSL’s Touch Eclait foundation. They recently changed their formula. If you can’t be bothered reading my full review, TL;DR it’s amazing!

I went to Debenhams and got colour matched at the YSL counter. The girl who helped me find my shade commented that this is the ‘most reviewed’ foundation on the market. I thought that was a bizarre claim. Firstly the reviews need to be positive for that to be of any interest. Secondly all that really means is that they sent it to more bloggers than anyone else, although I have no idea how you would measure this.

YSL Touch Eclait Shades

Sales claims aside, I got a perfect match for my skintone which is pretty rare for me. I would say this is the closest match for my skintone I’ve ever had, even when matched in person. The product does an amazing job of blending to match you. There are 19 shades which seem to cater for pale skintones but less so for dark.

Testing A Sample

Once we had sorted my colour, I was given a free sample to use for a week. I love that they have a generous sized sample as it gives you a chance to use the product with your other makeup and really put it to the test.

Full Coverage

Touch Eclait is a full-coverage foundation. The new formula is thick in consistency and it has great coverage. Despite this, it’s not cakey at all and the finish is flawless but luminous. It feels lightweight to wear and I absolutely love how it looks on the skin.

Other makeup layers well on-top of it without issues. Whilst Touch Eclait doesn’t appear dry or caked on skin it does settle into lines slightly more than I would like. That’s my only real criticism.

Touch Eclait wears well throughout the day and doesn’t shift. I use two pumps and blend out with a beauty blender to achieve the result I like.

Whilst this product is priced at £33.50 and more expensive than the other two high street foundations I’ll be reviewing, it is worth it in my opinion. I love the formula. And found almost all of the brand’s claims about the product were fair.

Have you tried the new YSL Touch Eclait foundation formula?

  1. I have heard very good things about this foundation. I use to use their primer years ago xx

  2. Definitely going to look into YSL for the next time I want to change up my foundation. Love that it’s not too cakey. I use Makeup Forever right now, but I like changing it up every now and then 🙂


  3. Sounds like you got great customer service despite her bold claims! I usually hate getting my shade matched at counters because they always go way too dark & end up convincing me otherwise. I had a disaster with Double Wear in Debenhams. It’s fab they gave you such a decent sized sample.

  4. I need to get a sample of this, it sounds really good 🙂 It’s great you got a good sample size too, I think you need to try foundation a few times to see if you really like it so it’s good to get a good amount, great review as always lovely xxx

  5. It’s fab they gave you a good sized sample – i hate buying products without being able to try them beforehand! Looks like a lovely luxury foundation x
