Yves Saint Laurent reigns as one of the most influential and inspired designers in the world. From his early days in the studio of Christian Dior to his acclaimed haute couture collections of today, YSL's touch remains unmistakable. The YSL style is reflected in the realm of fashion, including accessories, jewelry, ready-to-wear, fragrance, and cosmetics.
Touche Elcat Blur Primer preps skin for foundation application, creating an improved, refined appearance: pores seem to be minimized, skin texture feels smoother, and skintone is more even. It’s enriched with four nourishing oils—corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil—to leave skin feeling incredibly soft without a greasy residue. Packed with blur technology, this universal primer provides a subtle, golden shimmer for ultimate luminosity.
When I first opened, inspected the product, and read the packaging, I was hesitant of using the product. I was alarmed about the "subtle, golden shimmer for ultimate luminosity," given my past experiences with products that has similar claims and I end up finding an overwhelming amount of shimmer not to my liking.
I tested the primer on my hand first to see exactly how much golden shimmer YSL is talking about and omg y'all... The Blur Primer is pretty amazing! The golden shimmer is not overwhelming at all I promise! It's just enough to give you an overall subtle glow.
This primer reduced the appearance of my pores dramatically before I even applied foundation! I love how soft and smooth this makes my complexion and my foundation applies like a dream! My skin is completely flawless with no signs of large pores anywhere after I apply my makeup! YAAASSS!
This portable perfector is Yves Saint Laurent’s first ever blur perfector encased within a compact. It transforms from a balm to a powder upon application to soften the skin’s imperfections—creating a transparent yet subtle, rosy-glow effect. Use it alone as an allover complexion perfector, to set makeup, or as a mattifying touch up to sweep away shine and hide imperfections. Featuring one universal shade that complements all skin types, it instantly minimizes the look of pores so that skin feels smoother and the complexion appears more even.
I am not keen on using those little sponges/applicators that comes with compacts. The instructions were clear to use the included applicator to tap the Blur Perfector onto where ever you need to touch up. Even after Snapchatting with my blogging best +jackie leung if I could use an alternative on how to go about applying the Blur Perfector, I felt trapped to having to use the applicator. (If you know another way to apply the Blur Perfector, please share your tips with me in the comments below!)
Proceeding on with the applicator, I applied the Blur Perfector after putting on my whole makeup. I applied it to areas that I know would get oily throughout the day (my T-Zone and chin).
After the first application, I didn't need to touch up on my oily spots until it was almost time to go home and wash off my face and didn't want to touch up since the makeup was going to come off in the next hour anyway but it is my job to try and test so I can report back to y'all so I did and the shine was immediately gone as if there was no oily-ness there to begin with!
I am thoroughly enjoying my YSL beauty gems from Influenster very much and find that the products are well worth the investment! For skin reference, I am sensitive combination - note that both products are noncomedogenic and ideal for all skintones and skin types! YAAASSS!!!! (Are you tired of me saying YAAASSS yet? Better get use to it lol!)
You can find both the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer and Blur Perfector at Sephora <3
