I love that it is July and summer, but I must say it reaks havick on my makeup! Staying up to date with makeup is not usually my forte-I tend to stick to the same brands but I was elated when YSL sent me two AWESOME products that are perfect for this summer weather!

The first product being a primer (which makes your makeup so much better) TOUCHE ÉCLAT BLUR PRIMER

The first radiance boosting foundation primer that combines the light of Touche Éclat and the perfecting effect of blur. Formulated with 4 nourishing oils, skin is left incredibly soft without greasy residue. Immediately the look of skin is improved: pores look diminished, skin texture feels smoother, skin tone looks more even and luminous. Free of dulling opaque fillers, the transparent texture is available in one universal shade with subtle sparkles of golden light for maximum luminosity. Suitable for all skin tones

The second being TOUCHE ÉCLAT BLUR PERFECTOR

A YSL first, blur in a compact that perfects skin while retaining its luminous glow. It transforms from a balm to a powder upon application to blur imperfections and create a transparent, ever so slight rosy-glow effect. Instantly pores look visibly minimized, skin feels smoother and complexion looks more uniform. Use 3 ways: 1. Alone as an all-over complexion perfector 2. To set makeup 3. As a mattyfying touch up during the day to sweep away any shininess and imperfections.

So how do both of these play out? Freakin’ fantastic! I love using the blur primer and just the blur primer on hot days. In the summer I don’t feel the need for a lot of makeup (unless I’m going out) so moisturizer and then the primer is perfect! The blur perfector can be used alone or to set makeup. I like to keep it in my bag and use it mid-day when I’m feeling oily or if I need to go somewhere after work.

I’m pretty pumped that I’ve recieved these products, especially since I have never used an YSL product before. If given the chance I would totally pick up the primer first. Have you used these products before? What is your favorite primer? Tell us in the comments below!

Cheers!

xoxo Lindsay

    these products seem so fancy. I have not heard of them at all!
    I also don’t own primer. Bet that would help when I can put makeup on!! 🙂

      A bit fancy but totally worth it! I would def recommend primer-I like Maybelline’s primer for a drugstore brand.

    This sounds like a great, fancy shmancy product! How much is it? Do you notice a considerable difference when using it? Great post!

      They are retailing for about $40/piece I believe. I would def say I notice a difference when using them, which is usually not the case!

    I have the worst luck keeping my makeup on in the summer heat! This post is great. I haven’t heard of this brand so I may have to check them out as well!

      I also like Maybelline’s blur primer for a drugstore brand if you can’t afford this!

    I keep my summer makeup really simple also. It just melts off my face anyway! I like the Benefit Porefessional primer.

    Oh I will have to try these. Summer is not being nice to my makeup, and I feel like I constantly have to check it! Thanks for the great review

    Thanks for the tips. I love wearing makeup when I need to do photoshoots, but thanks to the horrible Arkansas heat everytime I wear makeup for shoots I get sweaty and itchy on my face and end up having tons of makeup in my fingernails. #notcute. I am always looking for makeup that works better in the heat so thanks for the tips!

    This weather has been leaving me a sweaty mess! I have been using a primer under my foundation. Once I’m done with everything, I use a setting powder and then on top of the my Urban Decay Setting spray. It seems to last a while but like anything, if you don’t reapply, it sweats off mid day. Thanks for sharing!

      I haven’t even been wearing too much makeup to be honest, only this primer because of the heat!
