Hello Beauties!
Today I'm coming at you with an ultra fabulous review of YSL's Touche Eclat Blur Primer & Perfector!

So, I have to give major props to influenster on this one.  Of course when I found out I was selected to receive free YSL products, I was excited. I mean, its YSL! I read a little bit about the products and carried on. I don't like to dig into something that's not in my hands yet. That only leads to me hounding the mail man for my packages. 

When I opened my YSL Vox Box from influenster and saw these pretty gold boxes I got so excited. I could finally dig in and see what the fuss was about. If you've been following me for sometime, then you know that I am a sucker for amazing packaging. YSL is totally winning with this gold casing and blush pink backdrop framing YSL's logo. I didn't even want to use it, I just wanted to put it in a display case in my makeup room. A bit much, I know, but the packaging is gorgeous!

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer

I didn't really know what to expect with this primer. I don't know why...but I didn't expect much out of it. Boy was I wrong. The smallest drop goes a very long way. It applies super smooth and left my skin feeling brand new. It created a fine layer on top of my fine lines, wrinkles, an dry patches. This primer also contains little gold specs throughout the product, leaving you with a subtle, natural glow. See for yourself... (s/n Forgive my poor, poor nails. I'm growing out acrylics I recently cut off and they look rough beyond repair. No screen shots please. LOL, Carry on.)

Do you see the gold shimmer? Oh yes...just beautiful.

It is optional to wear this primer alone. If you just looking to smooth things out, go for it. However, I will be using this baby to prep for my favorite foundation. Its the perfect makeup primer.

(Lawd, Jesus...its pricy but an awesome product.)

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector

This beauty had me singing 90's love songs. THAT's how much I love the packaging and will probably never throw it away. The Blur Perfector comes in the cutest travel size compact. Not going to lie, when I opened it I saw what appeared to be a pinkish lip balm I didn't know what to think. I thought hmmm...

  1. One shade suits all? *Side eye* and Sings, "Heard it all before...all of your lies, all of your sweet talk..." (Lol) If you don't know that song, I don't know what to tell you...
  2. I'm a black girl. What's this going to do for me?
  3. I don't even want to try it. 
You know how we do sometimes. We look at a product and because we are intimidated by it (or didn't do our research) we rule it out. Well, the product is in fact a balm that transforms into a powder once applied to the skin. There's no tint to it, it just kind of disappears. You can feel it, but can't see it. This can also be used on top of your makeup throughout the day to touch up, reduce shine and refreshing your makeup. Dab it on, don't swipe when you have on a full face.

But yes...I did however notice a slight change in my skin. I couldn't really capture it in a photo, and I didn't want to deceive you with a super edited image of myself, so I'll just say this...

Final Remarks

The YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer & Perfector are amazing products. My skin (as I write this I'm rubbing my skin lol) feels extremely soft and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles did slightly diminish. If I had to pick on over the other, I would purchase the Blur Primer. I'm still amazed at what it did for my skin alone.

I hope you all enjoyed this review! Do you think you'll give one of these gems a shot? 
Let me know below.

Until next time,

Hello Beauties!

Today I'm coming to you to chat about this E.L.F blush palette that is absolutely WINNING (in my book)!

Sometime ago, (can't remember the exact time) I saw quite few images going around social media of E.L.F's new blush palettes. Let's be honest. Elf is cheap...we all know this, but we can't deny that they have some gems on their hands. Like their brushes, creme eyeliners and now THIS! Oh yes, I'm in love.

I've been trying out the product now for the past few weeks and it has definitely become my go-to for all things blush. No matter what look I'm going for, smokey or neutral they all work! Peep the swatches below:

While playing around with the palette, I flipped it over to see if their were names for each blush. There were not, however I discovered something else about the palette that others seemed to miss. When I posted this imaged on Instagram, many were surprised to see that each individual blush pops out making this palette customizable! Trust me, I was just as surprised at the discovery myself.

You can swap colors from dark palette to the light palette. I also wonder if they are expanding so that we can buy individual pans? hmmm. 

Any who, they've got my attention with this one and its definitely a must have in your personal makeup kit or pro kit. 

I give this product an over all A! The As you can tell in the swatches, the shades are very pigmented and require little to no touch up throughout the day (if you set your makeup correctly). Over all great purchase. I was actually on my way out of Old Navy one day when I saw a little E.L.F rack on the way out and it was the last one! WHEN did Old Navy start selling elf?! Either way I'm with it. Way to go ELF! I'm ready for a larger blush palette now...make it happen.

Do you have this palette? What are you thoughts?

Until next time,
- Bee
