For years I was a HUGE fan of Yves Saint Laurents Premier Teint, an àmazing product, that did èverything it promised. For me, and many of my colleagues a Holy Grail! They where availble in several coloris, like yellow (my favorite, most used), green, pink and ‘white’. There texture was sóo perfect! But not only that, also the colors, the where perfect. These little 20ml square bottles where little gems! Sadly…. on one moment: production stopped. Why? That’s always the question….
I tried many, many others, from other prestige houses, but no…. I didn’t find someting that comes close. A friend of mine advised me MAC. But I’m sorry, the texture…. no, it’s totally not my thing! When there is ‘good’, ‘better’, ‘best’… Mac was for me (not that) ‘good’. The YSL Premier Teint was (the) ‘Best’!!
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer, 30ml (Click photo to enlarge).
Now the house of Yves Saint Laurent has just released its new Touch Éclat Blur Primer, a product described as the brand’s first light infused primer. This blurring and illuminating fluid gel primer not only helps your makeup look better and last longer, but it also evens out the complexion, and blurs pores, lines and wrinkles.
This innovative primer is formulated using a cutting-edge technology, which allows the light to diffuse appropriately without interference from dulling opaque fillers. This (extreme!) lightweight, transparent gel features miniscule shimmering particles that blend evenly into the skin. The result is a gorgeous, natural-looking radiance, without any excess glitter. The primer is quite watery and very easy to apply, so that it instantly creates an ideal canvas.
The Touche Éclat Blur Primer can be layered under foundation to boost radiance, or worn alone (or with powder) to create a perfect canvas. Either way, apply one pump of the product on the back of your hand, and then apply with a tender sweeping gesture from the center of the face outward. The important thing is to leave it to set over skin for about 10 seconds before applying foundation.
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer is available in a single, transparent shade. The product is delivered in a luxurious, massive glass bottle with a gold-colored stopper and a pump dispenser. The formula is suitable for all skin types, and it is non-comedogenic. The formula is a blend of corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil hydrates skin and smoothes out the skin’s texture. A dose of finely milled gold shimmer imparts skin with a hint of luminosity.

In addition, YSL has introduced the ultimate Couture Eye Primer, which promises to prolong the wear of your eyeshadow to no less than 16 hours. Same as its Touche Éclat Blur counterpart, the Couture Eye Primer can be layered under the eye shadow, of worn alone for a perfect nude eye look. The formula promises a crease-proof wear, and it comes in two shades Fair and Medium.
I love them! I found a new Holy Grail! There texture, everything, they are perfect! But still: I miss the old premier teint to work with…..
The Touche Éclat Blur Primer, a real must have! For everybody! Even when you don’t use makeup but loves a radiance boost! It doesn’t matter what kind of makeup brand you prefer! You can use it with every product, every brand!
