Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible compared to the Youth Liberator I tried this foundation three years ago and it wasn't great but I had faith in YSL and tried the Youth Liberator Foundation. After switching to YL, I had a foundation crisis and had to pick up more and didn't have time to wait for the shipping time for the YL (they don't carry it at Sephora) and so went to the mall and grabbed this one. After using the YL, this looked terrible on me. It was SO heavy, didn't look like real skin, looked too orangey, and broke me out. I immediately returned this and purchased the Youth Liberator again and was extatic to have that one back. Will never order this one again and I have to save I'm EXTREMELY disappointed that YSL is discontinuing the Youth Liberator Serum Foundation. In my opinion, this one should be the one to be discontinued. I guess YSL just lost my business. :/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG BEST FOUNDATION EVER!!!!!!!!! Wow!!!! This is amazing foundation! I am so glad I ran across this, I'm 53 and have searched for a holy grail foundation and I have finally found it! I will never use any other foundation again! This foundation goes on pretty oily but sets to a beautiful matte and makes your skin feel so soft, also it does not settle into my lines and does not transfer onto anything, lasts for 24 hours and that's no lie! YSL you have me for life!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just love this product Found the makeup in France in Sephora and was worried about finding it here. Was so happy to find it at YSL and cheaper than in France. That was a shock!
