YSL so kindly sent me their new All Hours foundation, giving me the opportunity to give it a whirl and report back to you guys with a full review. I know there are so many foundations out there and I’m pretty much testing a new one every month for the love of beauty and making reviews. But from the many formula’s that come and go, this is one I can definitely see becoming a staple in my beauty bag.
What YSL has to say
The 1st YSL night & day wear foundation: own the night and the day with a flawless matte complexion which stays put until all hours. YSL also claim the foundation is waterproof and the transfer-resistant formula feels like air on the skin, allowing for comfortable, matte wear.
My Thoughts on The Foundation
So YSL is telling us we can say cyaaa to midday or midnight touch ups as this baby will see us through an entire 24hrs. You can pretty much work all day, party all night and then watch the sun rise with a flawless complexion. Yasss qweeen!
Sadly I don’t keep makeup on for 24hrs so I can’t really confirm or deny that claim, however, I do wear makeup for up to 10-12 hours! Which is a pretty damn long time where foundation is concerned and this formula does stand the test of time.
I absolutely adored this foundation after the first application (it rhymes!). I’m a big believer in high end foundations being the real deal, seriously deserving their hefty price tags and really didn’t think the YSL formula would be any different.
I apply this foundation with my moisturiser, suncream and illuminating primer under neath. I apply it with a beauty blender and find this foundation makes my complexion look soft, radiant and just really damn flawless!! I know you always read about foundations being flawless, but this will actually give you camera ready perfection. I have to agree with the claims it doesn’t transfer, as for waterproof, I’m not entirely sure.
The product is marketed as a matte finish and being a more dewy finish kind of gal, I still found this to not look overly matte on me after using setting powders, which I think makes it perfect for all skin types. The ingredients makes this feel comfortable, lightweight and buildable. I realllyy loved this YSL magical potion that even with blemishes made my skin feel perfected and radiant.
Have you tried this one out? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
