priscilla f asked: Do i use this before applying all makeup ?
does YSL have set up powder?
May 3, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Chaqille N: Yes, always apply primer BEFORE your foundation and/or concealer.
The purpose of the primer is to fill-in the skin's pores; this makes for a smoother base (your skin) and a more even application of any foundation and/or concealer you may use.
Using a primer also ensures that your make-up will not settle in to any fine lines, wrinkles or enlarged pores, which, as we all know, can make your foundation appear cakey and blotchy.
I hope this helps you with your excellent choice (and application) of an Yves Saint Laurent Primer :)

Ellen H: Hi -- I se this before applying makeup, and after using skin care or moisturizer. I am not sure about set up powder as I haven't tried that. What's nice about the Matt Touch is it is light and natural in appearance. I love it. May 4, 2012

Beth N: Yes, absolutely. I resisted trying it for a while because I liked the radiant touch primer, but I sincerely like this better. It does help the makeup last a long time and certainly helps it go on well. I also found it less necessary to use powder foundation once using this. Perhaps both because it helps how long the foundation alone lasts and also makes it a bit less dewy to start with (though equally lovely). Nov 6, 2012

Jill A: I have what I consider very oily skin and this is the only product that both matifies my skin and doesn't cause me to break out.

For me, it lasts all day. I do occasionally blot my face with a blotting paper but mostly in the summer.

So yes, it's good for oily skin and yes it lasts.

Hope this helps.
