Yves Saint Laurent: Matt Touch Oil Free Primer
Review Time, right, I treated myself to this when I went on a bit of Birthday shopping spree last month (if you know me I tend to go on ‘a bit of spree’ most months but as it was my birthday money I was spending I could justify it). The product was pretty much sold to me as soon as I squeezed a bit of the tester onto my hand to be honest so the YSL sales rep really didn’t have to say much before I said the words “I’ll take one of those”.
This is a mattifying primer which is dual purpose, it is especially good for those who tend to have oily or combination skin, which I do get on my T-Zone as the day goes on. The velvety texture of this is absolutely amazing it also brightens and smoothes your skin to create the perfect base before applying your foundation. It also can be worn by itself to give a matte finish to your skin if your lucky enough not to need any foundation. I really would recommend it and don’t let the price tag of £30.00 put you off, the tube is pretty big and you don’t need much at all just apply to the problem areas. I’ve been using this now for a month or so and so far no problems to report as far as skin irritation or increased amount of blemishes, infact…touch wood, my skin is looking pretty good at the moment! Hoorah!
I also invested in one of the YSLTouche Éclat concealer pens – all I can say is I won’t be buying any other concealer again- ever. Even though I am a massive fan of the Benefit ‘Boing’ concealer, the Touche Éclat completely out does it. Though it is a few pounds more expensive than Boing at £21.00 but definitely worth it.
