#YSLToucheEclat Review + Skincare Giveaway ENDED

8:30 AM

I was so excited when I received my #YSLToucheEclat goodies from Influenster last week.I love YSL Beauty (remember my lip stain post?) and I couldn't wait to try more of their products. I had the opportunity to try the Touche Eclat Blur Perfector and the Touche Eclat Blur Primer. Both are meant to perfect the appearance of skin by minimizing pores and imperfections.



The Blur Primer is like most face primers. It is meant to be worn after lotion but before any makeup is applied. Its' formula leaves skin feeling incredibly soft, while diminishing the look of pores and evening out skin tone. The bottle itself is really nice and I really love the gold specs in the bottle. It almost looks like it's gold fairy dust, there's something very magical about it.

I'm however, not impressed with the formula. It is a pretty average formula, I didn't really notice a decrease in pore size, but my skin did feel nice and soft. It is also very lightweight and doesn't have a greasy feeling, which is another positive. For $52, I'd rather buy a cheaper primer.




Summary:
+ Lightweight formula
+ Skin feels softer
- Doesn't minimize pore size
- Too expensive

Overall rating: 3/5 stars


I use a lot of mattifying powders. My face gets very oily as the day progresses, so I always need to carry a mattifying powder with me. Unfortunately, all the powders leave a thin white film on my face and end up feeling very cakey on my skin. You can feel it on your skin, it's very heavy. Of course, I've had some better experiences, but overall, I was looking for another product. 

In comes the Blur Perfector. This formula is similar to that of a lip balm, very gel-like. It is pigmented, but it dries clear on the skin. This was very easy to apply and it mattifies my skin without weighing it down. Plus, no disguisting residue! I carry this with me wherever I go now. It's very travel friendly, can easily fit in my pocket or purse. So far, it's proven to be worth it's retail price of $55. 







Summary:
+ Lightweight formula
+ No greasy/white film residue
+ Reduces shine
+ Good size, able to take it on the go
- A little expensive, but worth it for the benefits

Overall rating: 4.5/5 stars

And now it's giveaway time!! I've done a lot of beauty giveaways, but this one is a bit different. I'm focusing on skincare essentials rather than makeup products. Having a skincare routine is important. It is many times overlooked because a user would much prefer a "quick fix" product instead of taking the time to target the main problem. Today, I'm giving my readers a chance to win some of my skincare essentials! Check out what you'll win below:
