The new YSL Beaute classics: Encre De Peau Le Cushion and Couture Palette

Yves Saint Laurent’s beauty range has long been a staple in the beauty arsenal of glamorous stars and their makeup artists. The Touché Eclat pen is a classic highlighter/ concealer that hides flaws while accentuating the contours of the face with a natural-looking finish. Many beauty gurus swear by the Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow primer; and the Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks are deliciously, decadently, sexy. YSL Beaute does not try too hard with its makeup range, just quality products that work for timeless, classic beauty. No crazy neon colours, highlighters that beam to the moon, or other fads.

Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Encre De Peau All Hours foundation

Imagine being out from your morning latte run to cocktail hour, and not have to touch up your foundation and concealer.

Best used with the signature Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow to prime and add hydration to the skin first, so the foundation goes on even more smoothly and is prevented from oxidising (turning one orange shade darker 😱). The liquid All Hours concealer is also excellent and one of the best we’ve ever used. It packs in nicely on the undereye area without settling into the fine lines, blends into the skin beautifully matte to hide dark circles, and stays on all day 👌🏻. Watch for a closer look at the textures.
