Well I have to say, this feels like a little dream coming true. As a pale skinned person, bronzer has always been my friend, and as a the (proud???) owner of large pores, blur products have been a revelation in the last few years. Well guess what? YSL have merged these 2 skin life savers and formed YSL Les Sahariennes Blur Bronzer. It’s the product you never knew you needed…until now!
So the YSL Les Sahariennes Blur Bronzer is being coined as the first patented sun-kissed balm-powder blur innovation” . You can use it to contour or for all over bronzing and it is going to warm up the complexion and give you soft focus too. Like I said…the dream.
YSL are dubbing this the perfected complexion and solar radiance – the reinvention of the traditional codes of bronzing.

So if you tried the YSL Blur Perfector, then this is basically the bronzing version of that. I think it is pretty genius. I love bronzer but sometime shimmery pigment can accentuate pores and this does the complete opposite. It it skin enhancing, glow giving, pore minimising.
You can use it as a contour or an all over bronzer and it comes with a special applicator that allows you to either apply with a brush, or pat on with a powder puff.

I think this is a genius product. We all love a multi-tasker and for me, summer is the time I want to bronze and stay on top of the pore situation. This is set to be a winner for sure. We watched a contour demo using this with the Touche Eclat, and the results were brilliant.
I have had a play over my day old makeup with shade 3, and I have to say, as well as adding a soft warmth, it definitely has a brilliant minimising effect on the pores. Excellent!
