Don’t mess with a good thing, or so the axiom goes. But surely the same can’t be said of beauty products, which can now be updated and adapted as technology allows us to improve what we once considered to be entirely unsurpassable. Okay, so sometimes can brands get it wrong and leave us devastated that our trusted favourite has been tampered with. However, we can attest that YSL Beauty‘s update to the Touche Éclat Le Teint foundation only advances its iconic predecessor.

The rebooted formula is designed to offer the same radiant finish as the original, but with added skincare benefits – and obviously, that’s only a bonus. “Touche Éclat’s upgraded formula is infused with the mallow natural ingredient from the YSL Beauty Ourika Community Gardens, that protects skin and contributes to flawless glow,” says Caroline Nègre, YSL Beauté International Scientific Director.

The foundation has been a firm favourite since it launched, just like the perennially popular Touche Éclat Radiant Highlighter that inspired its inception. It’s medium coverage, so it leaves skin looking natural – if your skin’s natural state reached obnoxious levels of luminosity.

The added ingredients of marigold bloom, vitamin E and mallow extract mean that your skin is left even in tone, protected and nourished while still fulfilling the brief of glowy, healthy and fresh. Think of it as your cosmetic ticket to YSL Beauty ambassador Kaia Gerber‘s youthful complexion (well, as close as one can get). Oh, and the new bottle is chic too, if you needed an extra incentive.

 

“Our Touché Eclat Le Teint Foundation is just divine. The key botanical ingredients source from our Ourika Gardens are a game changer to the overall performance and appearance of this foundation,” says Bianca Downward, National Education Manager for YSL Beauty, of the re-launch. “With a 24-hour breathable wear and a luminous skin-like finish, it is truly liquid magic and perfect for every skin type.”
