YSL Teint Resist Foundation

After looking in many stores I finally managed to track down a sample amount of the new YSL Teint Resist foundation at a Nordstrom stop last week.

I had high hopes for this as it is supposed to be long wearing, absorb oil , look and feel great on skin. In the end I had good results but not perfect.

I love the feel of it. Thats the major selling point here for me- this foundation truly feels like you have nothing on your face. It melts right into skin and is weightless. It lasted long but not quite the 14 hours stated. I did get oil breakthrough on my T Zone , the nose ended up shiny. Even though this is considered a more matte foundation, it isn't super matte. The wear and look on the rest of the face was good.

The finish is fairly light. I expected a medium -full coverage and this is more light to medium. That's ok as long as you know you may need to build it up a bit and use more in trouble spots. It looks nice on, blends easily, and sinks right in leaving no cakey-ness. Skin looks very smooth and soft. I don't want to say natural but it's more your skin looking finished than heavier coverage.

So mostly I do like it and for the feel and look of it, that makes it tempting to buy a full bottle.
