Yes! I have my hands on some samples of the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation 2016 formulation which include the shade I have been matched to. So I now have  some before and after photos for you. Here’s a little spoiler, I think I love it!

So I think the key question is – What are the differences between the original formula and this new formulation?

The 2016 formulation still has the dewy radiant finish that Touch Eclat is famous for but there are some important points of difference:

  • Increased coverage for a more flawless look
  • Formulated to last longer on the skin
  • 6 new shades making a total of 22
  • Shade additions may mean you may not the same shade in the new formulation

I have been matched to B20 which is quite different to my original matching back in 2012. Back then I was BD40 – I used to tan my face a lot more then but in addition to this the new shades mean that a lot of the colours have shifted.

B20 is the shade ivory and I absolutely love it! I have a couple of other shades to show you too.

The first photo at the beginning of the post shows it with no concealer or powder, just bronzer.

I am SO pleased with this. I think the new formulation addresses everything that wasn’t so perfect about the original. Whilst it was big on glow factor, the coverage wasn’t really there for those that wanted it, and it seriously delivers on that now. It is easy to build up to the level of flawlessness you desire without any cakiness at all. And it’s still very big on glow!

The other things was that as pretty as the original looked, it did tend to slide off my T-zone after a few hours. The new formula has enhanced staying power for all day perfection. Yay!

One thought on “YSL Touche Eclat Foundation 2016 Swatches & Photos

  1. Ree is absolutely right. The shades are in no way the same as the ones before. If you are the same skin shade as before, the new one is likely 1-2 shades lighter than the older one. At least that is the case in my experience. I ordered the same one as advised by YSL and Nordies chat when it was first released and that’s how I learnt. YSL staff has since told me they have received a lot of complaints from customers about the same issue.
