Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS- Can't believe you'd discontinue it This is my favorite foundation. It is so light but gives the best coverage. I'm a reporter and it is the BEST for on-air coverage. I am so disappointed you are discontinuing this-- i created an account just to write this in hopes you would reconsider. it is THAT good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So depressing! I've used this one for years and no other is like it. I really wish I could start something,like a petition, to bring this foundation back. I just don't understand the discontinuance of something so miraculous. I had no breakouts and it gave me beautiful coverage without looking cakey. Seriously so sad and lost without this one. My skin is going through terrible times. YSL should bring this back!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I keep coming back! I've been using this makeup for two years and I love it! I have dry skin but after using my serum, lotion and a spf lotion my skin looks too shiny, Then I apply the Fusion Ink Foundation and takes away that shine & leaves a flawless Matt look. I use a loose powder to set it and I'm on my way! I love it!
