In the concept of radiant skin, a lot of brands released super lightweight foundations with a dewy and radiant finish. So, it didn’t come as a surprise that YSL also released their new Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation.
In general, I appreciate YSL foundations because they usually suit me and their classic YSL Touche Eclat foundation has been among my faves for a really long time (even though I still can’t find time to review it). That’s why I was super curious when I knew about this new product.
It was even more curious for me to compare two similar products, which were released almost at the same time: Dolce&Gabbana Millennial Skin SPF 30 Tinted Moisturizer and this YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation SPF 15. Do you want to find out which of these has become my go-to foundation? Then keep on reading my review!
The YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation comes with less posh packaging, which is a soft tube, infused with a pump that works perfectly well, btw.
I’m rather neutral to the simple packaging here, because, for me, the most important thing is the contents. Moreover, such modern products with these packages are more handy to use and the price is rather affordable then. Size 30ml.
Touche Éclat All-In-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer is a skin-loving, all-in-one medium coverage tinted moisturizer with SPF 23 that evens complexion, eliminates dullness and smooths fine lines. This good-for-you product is made in France with the finest pigments and ingredients that respect and care for the skin. The formula is oil-free, non comedogenic, talc-free and dermatologist tested.
The advanced formula, made with 70% water, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and antioxidants is clinically shown to provide intense hydration and improve skin texture while instantly creating a naturally shine-free luminous complexion. It’s your skin, but better.
The breakthrough texture is incredibly light so skin feels fresh and comfortable all day.
Finally, the coverage is buildable from light to medium. It’s the ultimate multi-tasking partner for instantly flawless, naturally glowing skin.
-For a lighter coverage, pump a dime-size amount onto the back of your hand, then swipe along your cheeks, forehead, and nose, blending out and down.
-For a higher coverage, squeeze two drops onto a paddle brush.
-Gently buff it into skin for a flawless, radiant finish.
-For buildable coverage, use a blending sponge. Wet and squeeze excess water from the sponge and use it to bounce the foundation across the skin.
-Repeat application for more coverage.
Expires within 12 months of opening. My shade is B20.
All the shades of the YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation have their own undertones, but in my book, all of them have more yellow pigments in the formula.
Swatches of the shade B20:
A comparison of my foundations: from the left to the right:
Dolche&Gabbana Millennial Skin light 3 Sand, YSL Touche Eclat All in the glow b20, Estée Lauder Double Wear nude 1w2 Sand, YSL Touche Eclat BD30, Chanel Les Beiges 20.
I chose the right shade for me because this B20 isn’t too fair or dark. It suits me just like the 1w2 Estée Lauder DW nude. Besides, this foundation is adjusting, so I don’t think that you’ll find it difficult to find the right shade for you.
The texture of the YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation seems to be unusual.
It’s more like a moisturizer texture-wise, rather than a foundation. It applies and distributes on my skin well. As for the setting, it doesn’t set quickly or fully, so you’ll have some time to touch-up if needed. One more thing, the coverage is buildable. In this case, the coverage looks smooth and there aren’t any foundation patches or splotches visible.
Coverage: It’s more close to being light. But thanks to the buildable formula, you can easily receive a medium coverage.
The finish is radiant, which is logical because the product is called glowing after all.
The glow is delicate and it has nothing to do with an active highlighter glow.
In my opinion, the product does nothing about the pores. The foundation is left on my mobile and the coverage travels on my face. However, the staying power is still good throughout the day and it looks adequate by the evening.
This foundation will be a discovery for dry skin types because it’s moisturizing and the stated skin-friendly formula is no way a marketing ploy here.
For example, my skin is dry, which is more close to being normal currently due to proper skin care. I have noticed that when I apply all the skin care products in the morning (including oil-based serums, I always use them before my foundation application), then the YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation feels greasy and too dewy throughout the day on my skin. I can even see how oily my skin looks then. My face will look more or less bearable with this YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation if I cut my morning skin care game in two.

Complete makeup look:
YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation vs Dolche&Gabbana Millennial Skin Tinted Moisturizer: the YSL product is more lightweight and easy to apply. Millennial Skin is more radiant throughout wear. The YSL foundation doesn’t set at once, while the D&G does.
As for the buildable coverage, here the YSL is better.
However!!! Millennial Skin wins my heart over 100% when it comes to staying power and finish! It’s my all-time favorite foundation! I love how my skin looks with the YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation but Dolce&Gabbana Millennial Skin makes it look perfect and flawless.
Besides, the YSL product offers only 30ml, while D&G 50ml, for almost the same sum of money.
I assess the YSL Touche Eclat All In One Glow foundation with 4 stars.
The classy YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat is still one of my faves and deserves more stars.
See you, Ms.Ks.
