My first thought when receiving this product was, what is a blur perfector? My second thought when receiving this product was, yay I love YSL!
The purpose of the Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat Blur Perfector is to create a perfectly smooth, fine line free, pore minimized canvas for makeup. I would describe its texture as balm-ly like, it applies the way a balm feels, yet kind of turns to powder as the after effect and feeling. I hope that made sense!
I look at this product as a primer, and a good one at that. For the past three weeks I’ve subbed in Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat Blur Perfector for my typical primer, and I’ve had great results. The best part of this product for me, is the fact that it’s mattifying…my ultimate test. As far as the color goes, it has a nice rose color in the palette that blends in easily to any skin tone color.
Not only can you use this product as a primer, but you can use it as a touch up throughout the day. & let me tell you something, having this in my makeup bag on these hot and muggy D.C. summer days, has been amazing. I use the applicator that came with the Blur Perfector and just blot on the oily parts of my face…it instantly creates a more matte look and evens out my foundation. I wish there was a bit more substance to the applicator, especially since the formula and texture of the product changes, but we all know the applicators products come with aren’t the best.
I know looking at the price tag of the Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat Blur Perfector might cause people to think twice before purchasing, but the truth is this is such a multifunctional product, that I feel as though its many uses allow the cost to make sense. Also, it’s YSL.
