Hello there!

Actually, I added this product to the cart without any thinking and because they would give a lot of presents and treats for purchasing.

The price was $68.

Earlier, I used to use only BB cream or powder from Erborian.

Product says:

LE TEINT ENCRE DE PEAU, the art of a perfect complexion without compromise, 24-hour wear and comfort. Flawless coverage for a perfectly even and luminous matte finish. A new hybrid technology for a texture as light and fine as ink, yet perfectly concealing. The result is natural and imperceptible, offering all women the freedom of a perfect complexion all day long.


From my foundation I need:


  • smooth complexion

  • mattifying effect

  • seamless finish


And I have to say that I’d prefer lightweight texture over full coverage, even though my skin is problematic. I just don’t like that feeling of a foundation on my skin. Besides, I hate when the finish is visible to people around.

The tube is gorgeous, that’s true.

Inside, there are instructions in several languages.


The product is infused with SPF 18.

The color selection was rather wide and I opted for the shade BD 20 - Beige Dore.

My skin is fair but it gets tanned quickly, besides, I love self-tanners a lot. Since I didn’t have a chance to swatch the product, I opted for the second one in the color line-up, but still, I’m afraid it would it too fair for me in summer.

You can apply it with the applicator and then distribute it with your fingers or brushes.

The product is interesting in texture. It feels like powder in oils (but it doesn’t leave any oily film or residue behind). The fluid has alcohol in the ingredients but it evaporates when I apply it over my skin, so I can feel free to pack the coverage.

In the end, my skin is matte and as though set with a powder. No setting required.

The product won’t cover up many visible blemishes like mine but it does conceal those minor ones with ease.

I use my YSL concealer for those blemishes.

I love the result: my skin looks smooth and not mask-esque.


In the picture, you can see it in action: my nude skin, with foundation and a concealer on top.

The finish is matte, yet not dead matte. It looks like my nude skin after washing. I mean, it feels like my skin is glowing from within, even though the product is shimmer-less.

And now, the most interesting part: this foundation is extremely long-wearing! My complexion in the evening looks as smooth as in the morning. Of course, there’s some oily shine all over but the fluid is able to keep it at bay as long as possible because of the mattifying properties. No oxidation was noticed while wearing.

Due to the alcohol ingredient in the components list, I can’t recommend it to those with dry skin types. I can feel it working when I apply it over my skin because my blemishes tingle but still, my skin isn’t dried.

The formula doesn’t make me break out and the oily sheen fact is the same. My idea is that within 1.5 months of use, there hasn’t been any negative reaction.

Ingredients list:

I can recommend this product! Especially for those with oily skin type!
