Doreen D: I think they discontinue colors and numbers routinely. I had to go with a 7 from my original number and it worked fine. I have been a ysl girl for 30 years. The only time I have been disappointed was when they discontinued #99 in the eye powder duo and started to use more shine in the eye colors. Not good for older women. Always try something new, it keeps us current. YSL will always take it back if your unsatisfied. Hope this helps. Aug 2, 2013

A shopper asked: Can this be used over liquid foundations? Or is it to be used stand alone? Mar 12, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (2) No (0)
Kristina W: I've used the pressed powder for a few years now. I use it daily by itself and feel that it gives me a nice, light-weight feeling coverage with the added benefit of SPF. However, when I want more coverage, I use it with the YSL liquid foundation. In my experience, it has worked well both on its own, and with a liquid foundation. It does it's job well in both circumstances and never feels heavy.

Hopefully that is helpful in your decision-making.
Best!

susan c: It can be used both ways! When I want a compete makeup job, I apply liquid foundation and the matt touche over the foundation. When I am in a hurry and don't want to bother with full makeup, I used it over my moisturized skin. Looks great either way! Mar 12, 2012

aamna a asked: Can this be applied wet? I like the finish of it dry but I'm wondering if I can mist my brush before I apply it but don't want the moisture to ruin the powder. Apr 6, 2013

dina r: I would not use this wet. This makeup goes on great. You can double the coverage by reapplying. If you think you may need more coverage than you should use a liquid foundation, letting it dry completely and then applying this powder. I still fell it would be too much makeup. This makeup works best alone and used as directed. With the sponge or with a proper full foundation brush. Apr 12, 2013

Deb D: I have been using this lovely powder for about a year and have never had any unpleasant skin reactions what so ever. Just a beautiful luminous finish to my skin. The powder does not claim to be 'non comodogenic' but I have not ever experienced a problem and I use it every day. If you have very oily skin, it may not be the best choice for you but normal to dry and combination skin types would find this very refined powder delightful to wear. Feb 23, 2012

paige b: Powder foundation is better for people with oily skin. If you skin is dry, you are better off with liquid foundation as the powder one will only emphasize the skin's dryness.

As for the shade selection, others will be able to help you better if you could describe your skin color and undertone. Shades #02, #04, #06, and #09 are good for those with yellow undertone. I use this foundation in #04 regularly during the summer when I am tanned to NC30 (MAC equivalence to medium skin color with yellow undertone). During the winter, I am NC25 (light-medium with yellow undertone) and I found #02 too light for me. Therefore I have to use another brand's powder foundation.

Customer Reviews

Matt Touche Compact SPF 20

Overall rating

This foundation powder has buildable coverage and the finished effect is perfect matte skin like a doll. When I was a teenager I used to just wear loose translucent powder for a smooth effect. Now that I need to cover up some skin imperfections and lines, this is the perfect product to cover lines and get that same youthful, smooth perfect skin look.

This product is perfect for minimizing the look of pores and imperfections without looking like you're wearing a mask. I have fair skin with small red veins showing through due to age and sun damage. This, along with Touch Eclat (01, Luminous Radiance), do nicely without the look of heavy make-up. Opal is the perfect shade for my fair skin with pink undertones. The ivory was too pale and looked like 'putty' on my face.

I have tried every foundation on the market, including all the high end ones. Nothing compares to YSL's Matte Touche foundation and Matte Touche powder. My skin looks so absolutely perfect when I wear these 2 together, and I am 63 years old. I've used this for years. I have had some trouble finding the right shade because my skin is kind of med. olive, but I have concluded that sand and pink beige work the best for me. Sand when I want to go lighter and pink beige when I prefer a little darker shade. People actually comment on my "beautiful skin" when I wear these. It is remarkable, PLEASE DON'T EVER DISCONTINUE THESE TWO PRODUCTS!

I use this powder as a foundation. It's great and the color is the best match I've ever found in a foundation. On days when I need a bit more coverage I use Long Wear Endless comfort foundation and with a big powder brush I will add a bit of the compact foundation. It can be used both ways and layers great as well.
