I recently went on a trip to Berlin with school, and in duty free at the airport I decided to treat myself as I had loads of euros left over. It was a really small one at Berlin Tegel Airport, but they did have a YSL stand and I had wanted this foundation for quite a while so I decided to get it. They didn’t have super pale shades, which is what I would’ve usually deviated for, but I was pretty surprised to find that the shade ‘cool sand’ actually matched my skin pretty well; maybe I’d even got a tan over the nice weather we had a few weeks ago!
The packaging is super luxurious! I love it, and it looks really high end. Glass foundation bottles always seem really special to me, and the gold writing and gold lid just add to the luxury feel.
The application is amazing. It goes on flawlessly, and blends in to create a really glowy, dewy finish. The foundation is quite liquid, which, duh, but it is quite a runny formula but I like that. It makes it more moisturising, which helps with my dry skin. It doesn’t sink into your skin and end up looking cakey, which I find can be a problem when foundation sinks into my smiles lines around my mouth. It is really long lasting and I can put it on before I go to school, and it will still be pretty much perfect by the time I’m done with the day. It can be really natural and perfect for everyday, but it can also be made more glam and full coverage for the nighttime, which makes it a really ideal foundation.
This cost me 41 euros, but it is £33 in debenhams, and I think it’s really worth the money. It’s a quality foundation, and it will last a good six months if not more. I’m really glad I bought it, and would recommend it to anyone!
