Youth Liberator Serum Foundation from YSL

Sunday, 8 March 2015


I have been using this foundation for months now so decided it was time I shared my thoughts with you all. 

Available in 7 shades, the YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation  is designed to revive skin’s youthful brightness and create a more uniform complexion. 

I particularly love the way this product is packaged. It comes in a weighty glass bottle fitted with an easy to use, mess free pump (take note Nars!)! It should also have a lid, which unfortunately I’ve lost but take it from me that the lid is shaped like a little top hat and looks super cute.

The texture of the foundation is perfect if you like using a brush or beauty blender to apply. I tend to use both. I apply one pump onto the back of my hand, use a blender to dab it all over my face then a buffing brush to blend it out. 

But it’s the coverage it gives that gives this one its place in my make up stash. I would say it’s definitely on the high end of the spectrum but it doesn’t have a hint of that chalky, cakey look some high coverage foundations have, instead it gives you you the look of perfectly flawless radiant skin. If you prefer a matte look you might want to powder this one down but I love skin to look fresh and glowing so it’s a win for me. 

So what about wear time? I am a huge fan of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder and always lightly dust my face after applying my makeup. On my skin I found that combo really did last all day. I particularly loved that it contains SPF25 but if you like your nightclub photos – you may find it gives the dreaded ghost-face!!

This foundation gives me the appearance of flawless, glowing skin while it works on improving the look and texture of my natural complexion. That is definitely worth it’s £34 price tag to me! 

What would you pay for perfect skin?
