I really like it it's gives me full cover with satin finish

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy I have been using the foundation since it it first came out and made the mistake of buying it with the new formulation without trying it out first. I was counting on it being the usual quality that I would expect from YSL. I tried it once, immediately removed it, and am ready to just toss the bottle. It makes my skin appear uneven, shows every imperfection, even my husband noticed. Save your money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the old formula!!! Just tried the new formula and I hate it!!! My coworkers noticed a difference in my skin immediately. I guess I need to look for a new foundation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap glass bottle The color was a bit darker than the previous bottle I had purchased of the same shade. It was fell out of my hands with the first week of having it and the bottle completely shattered!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same as the original formula Please YSL bring back the original formula of this foundation!!! This is a completely different product now. The old foundation was the only one on the market without a hint of a matte finish...the new one is matte like every other foundation out there! Please bring back the old formula, I know so many people are disappointed that they have lost their hg foundation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formulation is horrible I have worn Touche Eclat for over two years and loved it until they changed the formula. Let me paint you a picture -- I bought a new bottle, unaware of the change. When putting it on I thought it looked somewhat darker and the texture seemed different. When I stepped out of the bathroom, my boyfriend audibly gasped. My face was orange. New BD40 is much, much darker than the old BD40. So I went to the store and exchanged it for a lighter color, but it still looks pretty awful. Somehow YSL has managed to also eliminate all of the qualities of the original that made it so appealing -- the light texture, the beautiful way it looked in natural and artificial lighting, the super dewy finish. The new one is cakey and much thicker. Basically, I have never been so disappointed in a makeup product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from wait, what? Is this a joke? I have been using this stuff forever- BR30 was my ride or die. The new formulation is a nightmare; wrong tone, wrong finish, wrong texture. It's all wrong. Returned. Au revoir, Saint Laurent.
Date published: 2016-08-16
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why did you change the formula?? I used the Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation for years and reordered my perfect match color without realizing you changed the formula. My sacred BR30 has totally changed undertones and sadly no longer works for me. Color change is evident when viewing the bottle of the old and new side by side. Such a shame you changed the product so dramatically. Will definitely return and search out a new match.

Date published: 2016-08-09
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why did they change the formula and colors?! This used to be the hands down best foundation EVER put on the market. I ran out of my old B30 and purchased the "new & improved" version at the end of June. I wasn't able to find the right shade (tried three different ones!) and find the new formula to be much heavier on the skin. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product change not good My mom, my best friend, and myself all religiously wore this foundation and they have recently changed the formula to add more sunscreen-per Neiman Marcus, and it's horrible and Cakey! Very disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back old formula Dear YSL, please listen to your supporters and bring back the old formula. I bought this last week and it's def not dewy. Too cakey on my skin, will not be wearing this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula 180 from original I've been wearing this foundation for years. The old formula was a 5/5. It was what made me a loyal YSL beauty customer. The new formula leaves much to be desired. It has a dry, matte finish compared to the luminous, dewy finish of its predecessor. It also seems a bit white-cast, like sunscreens. I would no longer recommend this foundation and will be looking for a replacement.
Date published: 2016-07-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from They have changed the formula Make sure to check the dates on the wonderful reviews...they ones from 3 and 4 years ago are from when they had the old foundation, NOT the new one. This product used to be absolute perfection. Now, sadly, it is nothing like the original. I do not recommend it to anyone now. I was a devoted customer, I wore nothing else. I despise when companies change a product that has a cult following.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its a little different .......chalky? Fragrance?? Ive been using this and every other time I wear it this product will look super dry and accentuate texture issues. Ive tried with the blur primer and with porefessional (which I don't recommend!!) Your skincare has to be right on key or you will look chalky and dry. I use a buffer brush and use organ oil. The concentration of fragrance in this is just too high. Ive been using the older one for years and this new one I feel that my skin does not like it. My skin is becoming irritated with repeated use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So dissapointed with the re formulation I have been using this foundation for several years and was so pleased with it as it gave such a natural dewy finish. When I purchased the latest bottle a couple of weeks ago the store assistant told me that it had been re formulated with more coverage and sunscreen but that it still has the same radiant finish and light texture. I was so disappointed. It has a white pasty note coming through. It looks a bit better in artificial light but in daylight it's as if I have a really heavy sunscreen coming through the foundation. I'm a bit pale skinned and the old formulation gave my skin a lift. This one makes me look pasty and dull skinned. Please bring back the old formulation. I would much prefer to have moisturiser with spf on underneath rather than all the spf in the product. As for the coverage my natural flaws coming through are preferable to the drab look of this foundation. I would prefer to use concealer on any areas needing coverage. Sorry but I'm off to find an alternative after nearly 10 years using this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I have been using Touche Eclat foundation for a few years. I recently bought a bottle and was very dissapointed. The previous foundation gave your complexion a dewy finish, the new reformulated version gives your skin a dull finish....the coverage is also not the greatest. I am very dissapointed to say the least.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring back old formula! I don't want to exaggerate (but i will) this is the most beautiful foundation ever created. However, i am SOOOO upset they changed the formula and now the colors are NOT the same as before. I have gone through about 4 bottles of this beautiful face ink created by the makeup gods, and this past week i pick up my regular color (BR 30- im white as milk and this was the most natural looking foundation ever) and i noticed the bottle had black letters, instead of the gold. And in my head i thought, hmm well, the make up gods wouldnt ruin/change the ONE perfect color that i finally found after years and years of trying to match my white face.. But of course, as soon as i applied it i noticed a total difference. I am beyond sad. For all you ladies that are fair with dark hair and can never get the RIGHT foundation color bc either you look like casper or an umpa loompa, you will understand why this is so sad. Anyways, this product is amazing, just please please YSL MAKEUP GODS, bring back the old formula, it had the perfect tones and the texture was so amazing for those of us with dry skin :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for normal or dry skin I was so disappointed with this foundation and how it performed. It felt soooo drying and looked awful cakey and dry with just one layer. I really liked the original formula and wanted to like this also but it is so different from the original and definitely not an improvement. It settles into fine lines and just feels awful on the skin. I will not be using this foundation or recommending it to anyone at all. YSL bring back the original and if you do change a winning formula change it for the better not the worst. It really makes one look older.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So wanted to love?? I bought this and two touch pens wanting and expecting to love, but I didn't. I didn't foresee a problem when j started to apply. Texture seemed fine, but once I applied it was streaky

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Foundation for EXTREMELY PALE OLIVE SKIN My DNA consists of mostly Native American, Czech and Irish, so my skin ended up extremely pale/fair, but with olive undertones from the American Indian side. If any of you out there have the same thing going on, you'll get what I mean when I say that our unique skin tone also happens to be a curse! It is so So impossible to find a brand 1. that carries a foundation pale enough to even be considered and then 2. one that doesn't wear too pink or too yellow/orange...and we're not really neutral either, but milky with golden, olive undertones. I have searched high and low for a good foundation with great coverage that matches my skin, and I am so happy that I don't have to look anymore! It can get really discouraging!! lol Seriously, guys, to all my fair skin, olive peeps out there, get this foundation in B10. It will be life changing!!!
Date published: 2015-01-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This is by far the best foundation I've tried. I have super oily skin and this is the only foundation that seems to work well with my skin and also the only makeup I've been able to find that blends in well with my perfectly neutral skin tone (B30). I would not recommend this for someone looking for a heavy coverage makeup but if you have somewhat good skin and only need lightweight, hydrating coverage then certainly give this a try! It is pricey, especially for a college student like myself, but a little bit goes a long way and it is worth every penny as this is a high-end product where you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I love this foundation. It won't work for people that have supper oily skin or someone that has skin that needs a lot of coverage. I think people that don't like this foundation don't like their own skin. I am a professional makeup artist and usually when people don't like the way their sin looks it because they can see the texture of their blemish's or scars. That's one thing to remember when looking at foundation, foundations are only to even out your skin tone. So just remember that when your looking at your foundations. This one evens out skin tone so perfectly and having such a range of shades is why I love this foundations! It will make your skin look so youthful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great range of shades; illuminating I was so excited to find Beige Rose 20 in this foundation -- I am fair with pink undertones, freckles and auburn hair, and this shade matches my wintertime skin nearly perfectly. The foundation is medium coverage so I do need to apply additional concealer for undereye circles or any major blemishes. It applies beautifully with a foundation brush over a primer and lasts all day, and the finish is what I'd call "satin" - not shiny but not matte. My one complaint is that I do feel I need to apply a bit of finishing powder over this to make it less transferable; I find that this foundation shows up on scarves, coat collars, my cell phone, etc. which is frustrating. It does minimize pores and doesn't settle in the fine lines on my forehead.
Date published: 2014-04-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last, the perfect shade for natural redhead with fair skin! This product is exactly what I desired in a foundation; perfect match to my fair skin, medium coverage - enough to cover without looking like a mask, seems to minimize fine lines and pores, lasts all day, without irritating my sensitive skin. I never thought a product that was ideal for my skin tone, texture and temperament existed!
Date published: 2014-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite foundation I purchased this foundation after watching a video on the YSL Beauty website. I had been looking for something to help my skin look better in photographs. This product does the trick and when I wear it, I am constantly complimented on my skin.
Date published: 2014-02-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I've been waiting to try this forever after hearing so many great things about it! I was a bit skeptical to try it though just because I have oily and acne prone skin. However, I think it's fantastic. I haven't had the chance to wear it through a whole day, but I'm going to update as soon as I have. But just from wearing it for a couple of hours, I love it. It gives pretty good coverage and was a great color match. It also gives such a nice natural finish, and is hydrating which is nice for the winter time. I definitely recommend this. Xx
