At the beginning of the month I picked up the YSL Youth Liberator Foundation after hearing nothing but good things about it. This automatically makes me feel slightly sceptical, even though I haven’t tried a single product from YSL that I haven’t loved. Thankfully that’s still the case as I hate to ruin a good run.
After much deliberation I’ve come to the conclusion that this has to be my second favourite daytime foundation. Why? YSL Touche Eclat still reigns supreme in my world, especially with my crazy dry skin I’m currently sporting. But once my skin returns to it’s normal self, or even better, it’s slightly oiler self in the warmer months (am I the only one that likes to have slightly oilier skin?) then this will be a winner.
I have the shade B30 which is a good match for my current grey/olive state and apply it with my real techniques stippling brush. It has quite a build-able formula but I find it can look too much when built to a medium finish on extremely dry skin. But a little? A little can still do wonders for your skin, I apply a really light layer and use concealer where I need it, giving a beautiful luminous glow, correcting any dull, grey tones and still setting to an almost satin finish. It’s amount like a more glow giving Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk but with added SPF, so it’s a much better daytime option.
So to round up? If you like the G.A Luminous Silk then you’ll probably like this. If you want to see it in action then click here.
