YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation

YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation

I've been wanting to invest in a new expensive foundation for the winter time and after spending a little while reading many reviews and debating which one to buy i settled on the YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation and i picked it up when i went to Liverpool at the end of last month - just a little disclaimer; I'm aware that these photos aren't the greatest but i found this really hard to photograph so they'll have to make do.

I picked mine up from the YSL Counter in Debenhams and i was matched to the shade B30 Beige - i was a little worried because the lady that matched me literally had the worst make up ever, her red lipstick was pretty much all around her lips and it was rather dodgy looking, thankfully my sister was with me so she helped me to choose which shade looked better on me as well and so far I'm pretty happy with the shade; it's a little (emphasis on little) darker than a shade id normally go for but the shade lighter was way too light for me, however once it's blended in properly though (especially at the neck) i don't think it's too obvious and it actually looks nice - ill do a face of the day soon, showing you what it's like on as i didn't get chance to take photos for it and i was in work early today and the lighting was all funny when i tried to take them this morning!

The packaging for this is just gorgeous; like seriously the nicest foundation bottle i have ever owned. It looks so luxurious and i almost want to keep it out on display because it's just so pretty - it's a glass bottle which isn't too great if you are someone who travels a lot because i would be insanely paranoid about it smashing. However, i am extremely impressed with this foundation because it has a pump! I've noticed a lot of the more expensive foundations tend not to have pumps and you are expected to purchase a pump as well and then the lid of the foundation never bloody fits it which is super annoying so I'm really glad that this has a pump already.

The coverage of this foundation is a lot heavier than I'm used to, normally i always go for a very light coverage as i like a really natural finish, the coverage of this foundation is medium to heavy. Usually, the idea of a heavy coverage scares me and i always imagine it feeling really thick, heavy and just generally rather uncomfortable on my skin but this really doesn't feel heavy at all, in fact it feels quite light and nice on the skin which was a really pleasant surprise.

It covers my imperfections, blemishes and evens out my skintone really well, i love using my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush to apply this and I've found this to be such a great combination. I absolutely love how this makes my skin look; i feel like it makes my skin look quite flawless (not to sound big headed or anything) but it still looks really natural too which i really love about it! It blends out so nicely, it does take me a few minutes longer than usual but that's mostly because i like to be sure that I've blended it out properly so i like to spend a little bit of extra time on it.

This foundation is a little on the expensive side and it cost a whopping £37 so it's definitely a very luxury treat. When i bought this; i had a couple of vouchers so i managed to save a little bit of money on it but i honestly would pay the £37 for it as I'm rather impressed with it. It may be expensive but it's offers such great coverage, its not heavy on the skin, it leaves my skin looking flawless and just look at that bottle - its so beautiful.

Have you tried the YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation?

  3. This is also on my list to try. I love my YSL Touche Eclat. This one looks a bit more of a thicker coverage though so could be great for winter!!
