I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the new YSL All Hours Foundation. I have tried nearly every foundation formula in their current line up and have been consistently impressed through and through. Naturally, I had high expectations for this new foundation launch, which boasts an advanced, full coverage formula that is transfer proof, oil free and lasts up to 24 hours. Did the foundation hold up to its claims? How does it compare to other foundations from their line? Read on to find out.
The foundation is officially described as a soft matte, full coverage foundation that is waterproof , non-comedogenic, and provides long lasting coverage by combining move-with-you flexible pigments. In addition, the the formula is infused with skin loving ingredients such as black tea, an anti-oxidant complex that combats the signs of dullness and fatigue, while protecting skin from pollution. It also contains SPF 20, another added plus. It is currently available in 22 shades, with additional shades forthcoming.
Let’s first discuss packaging. I love the look of the sleek frosted bottle in the classic black and gold packaging. It also includes a pump! which is a departure from the quill shaped tip applicator from the Fusion Ink Foundation that I was not too fond of. I love the way the foundation applies and feels on my face. It immediately evens out my skin tone, hides any minor imperfections without a thick, heavy feeling. I purchased the shade B 45, described as a light medium with a neutral undertone. It doesn’t emphasize any fine lines and provides a soft matte finish as claimed, which reveals a flawless complexion that not only feels good on, but stays put! No touch ups were required through out the day. Given the sweltering Southern California heat, that’s saying something.
How does the formula compare to the other YSL Foundations I’ve tried from their line? A quick comparison listed below:
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation: This is an illuminating foundation that feels very lightweight. It combines the magic light of their best selling Touche Eclat Perfecting Pen, awakening the skin with a radiant, luminous finish. If you’re looking for the most natural looking foundation of the three, this would be it. It looks like second skin.
YSL Fusion Ink Foundation: This foundation provides medium coverage, so it is truly the medium in terms of formula between the two. The formula also feels lightweight and provides long lasting coverage.
YSL All Hours Full Coverage Foundation: This provides the most coverage in my opinion of the three. It’s a bit thicker in texture than the other two, but doesn’t look or feel cakey whatsoever. It provides long lasting comfortable, touch- up free wear that also contains SPF.
Swatches Top to Bottom: YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation in B 45, YSL All Hours Foundation in B45, Fusion Ink Foundation B 50.
Bottom line, the YSL All Hours Foundation was a winner for me. I am impressed with the lightweight coverage and flawless finish along with its staying power. I will be reaching for it quite often on the days I want to achieve flawless, full coverage.
