I have the top secrets balm. It's great for calming red skin and making you feel fresh, but it totally ruins my foundation and makes it slide off my face. Not because it makes me greasy, it's hard to explain, my foundation just sits in my pores and separates from my skin. Really annoyed, because it cost me lots of money.

Other than that, I got my foundation today, the perfect touch one, and I love the color, I think it must be a new shade because I tried it before and it was much too dark. really nice matte buildable finish. I have awful skin, but I don't even have to wear concealer with this!

^I heard about that top secrets thing. It's supposed to be a skincare/primer product right?? Hmm, have you tried just applying this and then concealer over to cover up blemishes and not wear foundation at all??

I do love the perfect touch too - like touche eclat for the whole face!!

any guys here have tried the new Touch Eclat for men & the healthy look tools?

YSL's “Healthy Look Tools” for L'Homme: pioneering skincare for the metrosexual market

YSL has extended its L’Homme fragrance range with three new skin treatments known collectively as the “Healthy Look Tools”: L’Homme Radiant Touch for Men (€26.86 for 2.5ml), L’Homme Healthy Look Moisturizer (€30.78 for 50ml) and L’Homme Anti-Fatigue Treatment (€30.78 for 10g).

All three items are presented in cylindrical, gun-metal grey packaging with chrome accents.

The Anti-Fatigue Treatment is an energising stick whose application is said to instantly reinvigorate skin. It delivers an icy, tightening effect that makes skin smoother, radiant and more matte, according to YSL. It is also lightly scented with the L’Homme fragrance.

The Healthy Look Moisturizer is a triple-action gel that is said to guarantee hydration, well-being and a healthy look. It includes fine particles that release a hint of colour on application to naturally brighten a dull complexion.

Radiant Touch for Men is a masculine version of YSL’s iconic Touche Eclat highlighter.

Featuring the familiar pen-brush design, it should be applied directly to areas that are showing signs of fatigue or imperfection. It contains special light-reflecting pigments and stimulating plant complexes.

I reckon the Radiant Touche is the same as Touche Eclat, except that the packaging is different..

That anti-fatigue treatment sounds REALLY good though!! I like that "icy, tightening effect" description!

At first I loved the radiant touch foundation, but then I found it sat in my pores and looked weird on my skin. Which was disappointing, because the shade was perfect for my skin

I had a tester of the top secret, and I loved it I was thinking about buying it.

i wouldn't bother with the "masculine" Touche. they just repackage things to look "manlier".

and i got the Touche Parfait (the brush foundation) as a tester tube. i don't use it as foundation but since it's exactly my skintone (selftan and all), i use it as a concealer. works great for me.

Hmm, I don't think I like any of those colours Maybe the purple she has on her lids, but that doesn't appear to be on the pallette?

Learn more about the artistry behind the collection, plus another promo photo!

Inspired by the artists of his time, Yves Saint Laurent created his very own language in fashion and beauty: a language of color in its purest state. His unique approach sets the stage for a woman who enjoys dazzling her audience with the power of seductive colors.

The SPRING 2009 Collection is an artistic look at the visionary contrasts invented by Yves Saint Laurent: a shock of colors in vibrating harmonies of yellow and pink, orange and fuchsia, green and violet, ochre and blue.

VIRTUAL HORIZONS
Under the talented hand of Yves Saint Laurent Artistic Advisor for Make-Up, Val Garland, Coco Rocha interprets an optimistic, futuristic Yves Saint Laurent woman with her eyes firmly fixed on the horizon.

Limited Editions: Abstract works of art
Icons of the collection are two Limited Edition palettes inspired by abstract art: each one offers an original, graphic interpretation of luminous, soft colors, and the poetry of vibrant harmonies that invite women to become the artists of their own beauty.

PALETTE D’ARTISTE | COLLECTOR POWDER FOR THE COMPLEXION
Four radiant shades form a graphic pattern that remains intact to the very end. This refined presentation stimulates creative application for a dazzling spring look. The palette has everything it takes: a pale, sunny earth shade to warm and sculpt the face, vibrant orange and tender pink to brighten and heat up the intensity, and light pink to highlight and illuminate prominent features with a satiny sheen.

Silky and intensified with Ampli Light + pigments, these powders capture the light and enhance the skin with beautiful transparency. Apply the shades one by one using a brush, or sweep the brush over them all to create a personalized, always unique shade of blush.

PALETTE D’ARTISTE COLLECTOR POWDER FOR THE EYES
This quartet, the second part of this exceptional diptych, offers a poetic vision of the eyes.
The long-lasting, silky, satiny powders are pure, luminous, perfectly matte and richly pigmented.
The intensity of their shades makes the eyes dance with pure color. Perfectly adjustable, easy to apply and blend, they are ideal for personalizing the eyes every day, to reinvent them as an original work of art. Pale yellow, tender pink, gray-green for the eyelids, and a trace of deep purple to apply along the lash line to structure and intensify the overall effect.

GLOSS PUR
Fall’s trend-inspiring success of Limited Edition GLOSS PUR Black redefined the codes of seduction by brandishing the designer’s favorite color – black – on the lips. Today, GLOSS PUR celebrates color in its purest state: no sparkles or demi-tones, just extreme shine and infinite comfort.

The applicator precisely deposits a flash of colored light. The supple, translucent texture is ideal for creating gorgeous effects, from a subtle veil to a mirror shine. Worn alone or as a top coat with ROUGE PUR lipstick, this supremely fashionable gloss boasts a collection of nude shades like flesh-colored N° 1 Pure Nude and soft pink N° 2 Pure Rose, and intense, fruity shades like raspberry N° 4 Pure Raspberry, fluorescent orange N° 3 Pure Coral, burnt sienna N° 6 Pure Plum and the essential N° 5 Pure Fuchsia, the iconic Yves Saint Laurent shade.

The pure expression of color by Yves Saint Laurent, GLOSS PUR pairs perfectly with Fard à lèvres ROUGE PUR to endow each woman with her own unique radiance.

THE HARMONIES: OVER THE RAINBOW

In the visual with make-up created by Val Garland, Coco Rocha becomes the central figure in a boldly colored painting.

Lashes sheathed with new EVERLONG MASCARA N° 7 Ever Steel Blue are blended with indigo to bring out the purple and pink shades on the upper eyelids. The eyebrow arch is brightened with pastel yellow. Under the eyes, the green in the palette is mixed with EASY LINER FOR EYES N° 3 Easy Blue for a vibrant contrast. The complexion is fresh, smooth and matte. Lips are tangy and fruity with a refreshing, ultra shiny orange shade.

HARMONY #1 BLUE LINE
A perfect pairing of blue and beige for a woman who, above all, expresses her beauty through purified, balanced intensities. For outlining eyes, blue is the new black, to be combined with beige for a new, timeless look.

The eyelids are enhanced with OMBRES DUOLUMIÈRES N° 19 Oatmeal / Petroleum Blue and EASY LINER FOR EYES N° 3 Easy Blue together with the coordinated EVERLONG MASCARA N° 7 Ever Steel Blue shade. Deceptively demure lips are incomparably shiny with GLOSS PUR N° 1 Pure Nude.

HARMONY #2 PINK DELIGHTS
A play of shadow and light finished with a velvety effect. Eyes are rimmed with OMBRES DUOLUMIÈRES N°17 Ivory Beige / Deep Black. Lips are raspberry pink with GLOSS PUR N°4 Pure Raspberry. The sensual woman indulges her passion for Pink with delight, giving it an intensely brilliant, vibrant shine.

If I'll have to shoot someone to get that gloss she's wearing, I'll do it. But it won't be necessary, I guess.
How light is the make-up foundation? Cause what you guys write sounds good, but I'm very, very pale.

I could never get away with just concealer, my skin and face make me want to vomit without it! I think I'll try it during the week though, just to give it a go!

You're right about perfect touch absolutely, it's not an effect I want every day, but now I own it i'm never going to be without some in my bag!
