WWD brings us the scoop about the most exciting foundation release possible: YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat. I'm a huge fan of the Touche Eclat highlighting pen because it helps make my deeply sunken eyes look a bit more human. Touche Eclat which was first released 20 years ago (and as far as I can tell has been gradually adjust and improved over the years) is reputed to be such a best seller that one is sold every 10 seconds somewhere in the world. So, yes, YSL is definitely gearing up for a major hit.
The formula was in development for 10 years (!) until the lab achieved the desired combination of "natural-looking yet sophisticated, dewy and luminous complexion" (according to YSL executives quoted in WWD. Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation will come in 22 shades. The 30 ml bottle of Le Teint is priced at $55 in the U.S. and 42.60 euros, and is slated for prelaunch on June 28 exclusively in Selfridges, London and Brown Thomas in Dublin. The rest of the UK will see the foundation on July 9th, while here in the U.S. the product is expected by the end of July.
It's not that there's a shortage of great foundations, but this sounds fabulous and I love a dewy and luminous finish in face products. are you excited or is it just me?
