A shopper asked: I have asian tanned skin, with yellow undertones, and use the touche eclat #3 as a concealer (which btw matches my skin colour perfectly). Which shade of this powder would work best? And does the touche eclat go on before or after the powder? Nov 5, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Mary L: Hello,
I use Touche Eclat 2.5 and the lightest powder (Ivory No. 1). I use TE first and then the powder over it. You should probably try powder shade no. 3 because it has a peachy tone that would work better with your natural coloring than No. 2 Light Sand if TE No. 3 is the perfect shade for you. Good luck!

Jiexin Z: I used the #2 for tohche éclat. And I used color sand for this power. So you can use any color that slightly deeper the color sand. This power go after the concealer as a setting power to set the concealer. Hope this helps! Nov 6, 2013

Nancy T P: I wish I could answer you, but the compact does not list the ingredients. What I can tell you is that I am extremely allergic and had no problem with it. However, I am very, very fair and this powder made look even paler. So I really don't use it that often. But it certainly has good coverage. Sep 18, 2013

Jennifer L: I bought this because I play tennis and stay tan most of the year. I had to return it as it was too pinky and not dark enough. I use to wear the compact matte powder and am very disappointed that they have discontinued this line. It had great coverage. No need for a base layer. This line doesn't even have a color that comes close and coverage is not near as good. I am caucasion Apr 22, 2014

Patricia G: Unfortunately the colors are all pretty pink... the only neutral color is number 03 beige, but it's really light... too light for me in the summer. I use the loose powder Poudre Sur Mesure now in #03 and I'm pretty happy with it, although it's not as good as the discontinued pressed powder. Hope that helps! Jun 16, 2012

Customer Reviews

Poudre Compacte Radiance

Overall rating

I tried YSL's powder first in a complexion compact. It was the first experience with what a powder should actually do. I was incorrect before. It covers age spots while illuminating, and although matte, the pigments are the highest quality and combined with light reflecting properties allowing you to feel fabulous!
