In an earlier post I discussed my LARGE Sephora haul in Kentucky. I picked up numerous products I’d been drooling over, but there was one that escaped me. The Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation in the color Beige 50 was sold out! Much to my dismay I accepted the consolation of 3 large samples to take home. In retrospect, I think samples are a great idea. Especially when the price tag of a foundation is $57 {yes i know, that’s a lot}. Like I always say, makeup doesn’t have to be high-end to be noteworthy, but there are some amazing products well worth the jaw-dropping cost.

See above for the tools I use to apply my Le Teint Touche Eclat {click the bold titles to purchase}:

1. YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat – Beige 50
2. Sigma Flat Top Kabuki Brush OR
3. Beauty Blender – Original
After using the majority of my samples, I have concluded that this foundation IS worth it! I cannot even tell you how glowy your skin will look and what a beautiful finish is left behind. No joke…we were driving home from a surprise engagement this past weekend {it was humid, hot, and raining} and I could not believe the fresh, dewy face looking back at me in the mirror. I have never had a “glow” like this. {Unless it was from oil, and let’s be honest, that’s not the glow you want}.

The best part about this foundation…a little goes a long way! Even though the price may be high, the lifetime of this product should be worth the while. In my estimation, one or two pumps should be more than enough!

The glories of wedding planning and saving have kept me from quickly ordering, but once it’s in the budget {next paycheck perhaps} this baby will be allll mine! As mentioned earlier I am the color B50. Naturally, I am probably one of the lightest shades, but I habitually spray tan in the summer and am quite a few shades darker. The coloring is much more brown than orange which I loveeee. I also have a normal skin type with a little oil or a little dryness depending on the time of year.

Have fun making your makeup wish list!
