Just recently I've been trying out a new primer, the Yves Saint Laurant Touche Éclat Blur Primer. When it comes to primers, I'm pretty rubbish at remembering to put them on under foundation, but I've really made an effort with this one, and I think that's because it's so freakin' pretty! I mean look at it - IT HAS GOLD SPARKLES IN IT! Seriously, I nearly lost my s**t when I took this out of the box!

Ok, now we've got that little outburst out of the way, lets just take a moment to appreciate this.... ok done? Good, let me tell you a little bit about this.  This primer c/o House of Fraser, encompasses all of the YSL science behind their Touche Éclat range, which embodies light and illumination.  This primer is designed to brighten your skin, blur your pores and imperfections to give a better canvas on which to apply your foundation.

If you're wondering if those gold sparkles translate onto your skin, they do.  However, when you apply foundation over the top you won't see them any more.  The YSL blur primer is quite different in texture to other primers I've used.  You almost can't pump out a small enough amount as a little really, really goes a long way.  It's most similar to gel primers, but it has a VERY powdery finish, and that's not a bad thing.  Unlike other gel primers, it doesn't roll off the edge of your skin.  In the past with gel primers I've always found that instead of masking my pores, they'd actually highlight them - but with this one I haven't had that happen.  My foundation sits on top of it beautifully.  If anything, I've found that I need even less foundation than normal as the primer underneath seems to spread the foundation out more - I know that sounds strange, but that's what I've found.

It's certainly one of the best primers I've used.  It hasn't broken me out and has really helped to keep my foundation looking flawless on my skin for longer.  As you might expect, this isn't exactly a budget buy, it comes in at approx £29.50 - but like many things in life, you really get what you pay for.
