Yves Saint Laurent’s new Holy Grail

For those who remember: Yves Saint Laurent Premier Teint, the most amazing Primer in the world of makeup. Sold in its beautiful square glass bottle with golden cap. But most important: the texture, and the colors where amazing!! This combination made them perfect to work with. – I loved yellow! If it was on stage (theatre, fashionshows), or on location (photoshoots), or for ‘simple’ home use, Premier Teint was a true Holy Grail! And then one day: sadly … stopped! And there was never another Premier Teint! Or?



Now Yves Saint Laurent welcomed another new addition the: Touche Éclat Blur Primer. Thanks to new three color pathways, the gel formulation instantly troubleshoots different skin concerns – thanks to motherhood – it will create a perfectly radiant complexion. In a flash, the skin appears refreshed and even in tone – yet so natural it could be bare.

Achieve a flawless complexion with the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer; an innovative, colour-correcting primer powered by advanced blur technology that disguises imperfections

Arriving in three shades, each formulated to target different concerns, the illuminating primer revives lacklustre skin, adding a spark of radiance and evening out skin tone and texture. Which color is your perfect match to even out those small imperfections?

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer comes in a 30ml flacon with pump – €49.





Yves Saint Laurent’s cult highlighter now comes in a glowy foundation


Touche Éclat is one of those cult products that has never really died down in popularity. A highlighter for some, an undereye concealer for others, it’s meant to add ‘ribbons of light’ on the face. And while the brand has more or less retained the formula and the clicky pen dispenser – how satisfying is it to press and release that smooth, glorious liquid – we were glad see new additions like more inclusive colours.

If you’re still a loyal fan of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté’s Touche Éclat, there’s a new foundation you need to know

While the original Touche Éclat is pretty much untouchable, new additions to the range include foundations (in a cushion and liquid form) and limited edition versions of that marvellous pen highlighter. The new All-In-One Glow Foundation comes in an unobtrusive slim tube. The small size slips easily into purses, and heck, even pockets, but packs a big punch.


Think of this as the ultimate dewy glow in a tube – great if you’re on the go and can’t afford to pack your arsenal of highlighting powders and primers with you. Dubbed a mistake-proof product, this is the kind of product even non-pros can master. You don’t even need a mirror, because it blends out so smoothly without telltale lines and demarcations usually seen from improper blending. It also gives skin a medium coverage and a beautiful natural, dewy glow.

What does this mean exactly? Your face will not be completely matte and flat, nor will it be too shiny. It gives a natural glow on just the right parts of the face (see Kravitz and Staz Lindes above) like the upper cheekbones and the high points of the forehead. Add some Touche Éclat where the light hits, and you’re good to go.



This foundation has a buildable coverage, so you can always add more throughout the day, and the hydrating formula ensures your skin stays (and looks) moist. The shades will suit most, but not all skin tones – those with darker complexions may not find a good match.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow Foundation is available from 1 September at Yves Saint Laurent Beauté counters and selected stores worldwide.






Yves Saint Laurent drops a holiday glitter bomb with ‘Sparkle Clash’ collection


For this year’s holiday season, the French maison is rocking a beauty look that shimmers and shines with seasonal sparkle with its ‘Sparkle Clash’ makeup collection.

Yves Saint Laurent is standing out from the beauty crowd this year with a makeup collection that’s both fun and sexy, switching traditional sophisticated holiday beauty for a glamorous and quirky look with a rock ‘n’ roll edge. From the packaging to the selection of shades, the brand offers an explosion of shimmer and shine to sparkle your way through the holiday season.

For Yves Saint Laurent Beauté creative director of makeup, Lloyd Simmonds, the idea for this exclusive look came from a desire to rethink the outdated trend for holiday makeup that’s overly polished, too ‘done’. Simmonds sought to put fun and glamour back into the occasion and make holiday makeup much easier to apply. That way, it can be as fun to wear as it is to put on.
