Hello gorgeous people,
let’s talk about makeup today, in particular about foundations. I am a guy and I regularly use foundation to even out my skin tone and to give me a healthy,dewy finish.
YSL youth liberator serum foundation is the company’s first serum foundation ‘ to be infused with the unique Glycanactif complex’. In terms of anti-aging benefits, let’s cut straight to the chase: I did not notice any! But this is not the reason why I purchased this foundation in the first place: I was attracted by its lightweight yet buildable coverage( to a medium coverage max, not full as stated on the YSL website) but above all its incredible luminosity and spreadability.
This foundation glides on the skin like a dream , , dewy and leaving your skin radiant and very luminous( hence why I would not recommend this foundation to very oily skin types or to anyone looking for a full coverage foundation).
The color range is pretty impressive and the colors are divided in D(golden undertones) and (pink undertones).The shade range goes from light to deep. For reference, I use BD50 which is a golden beige.
In terms of longevity, this is probably not the longest wearing foundation but it does not claim to be. It does last 9 hours on me with no issues.
It retails for £43, so not the cheapest but a bottle lasts me easily 3 months.
Just a quick note: Last year, while visiting the YSL counter in Harrods, I was told the foundation was being discontinued and only a few colors were still left. Upon checking now on Ysl website all the colors seems to be in stock.
I attached a couple of close-ups
of me wearing this foundation.
WHO IS IT FOR anyone looking for a natural looking foundation, with a luminous finish.Best suited for people with combo/normal/dry/mature skin.
Let me know if you love or loathe this foundation: I adore it.
