YSL has two products that claim to illuminate the skin, make it look more even and prepare it for makeup. The Touche Eclat Blur Perfector didn’t really wow me, although I’ve heard many people say they love it, so I wanted to try out the primer as well and compare the two.

The Touche Eclat Blur Primer is a silicone based clear primer that has gold flecks running through it. The golden flecks are supposed to illuminate the skin and add radiance, while the silicone based part of the primer is supposed to mattify the skin, elongate the wear of your makeup throughout the day, minimize your pores and even out your skin tone.

The Touche Eclat Blur Perfector comes in a compact and it’s supposed to perfect the skin while maintaining it’s luminous glow. It’s also supposed to set makeup and mattify any shine you experience throughout the day, but the consistency of this just didn’t work for setting my makeup. I didn’t really get on with this– read the review here.

I have combo skin, don’t have really noticeable pores, and don’t get too oily to the point where I need powder, which is probably why this wasn’t anything special for me. It does say this is great for every skin type, but I think it would work better for oily skin types with larger pores they want to minimize. This product wasn’t horrible or anything, but considering it’s $55, I want something that really wows me and it just didn’t noticeably minimize my pores or “perfect” my complexion as it claims to do.

The Blur Primer works better in my opinion. It blurred my pores slightly, added a slight luminosity and made my makeup glide on nicely so it does do what it claims. Still, I prefer my Becca Backlight Priming Filter and Marc Jacobs Undercover Perfecting Coconut Face Primer, and they’re much cheaper even though they’re still on the pricy side.

The Verdict |

Overall, I think the Blur Primer works better than the Blur Perfector, and out of the two I would recommend the former. The Perfector is more aesthetically pleasing, but other than that it didn’t do much for my combo skin. It’s possible that it works best for oily skin types so if you do have oily skin, try it out in stores!

Personally, I would save the money and invest it on some of their Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks because they’re perfection! You can read my review on a couple of them here. You can also check out my comparison between the Marc Jacobs Undercover Perfecting Coconut Face Primer and Becca Backlight Priming Filter if you can’t decide between those two.

  • I never picked up that primer because of the gold flex, are they noticeable on the skin?

    • No, they’re barely noticeable once they’re on the skin and just add a bit of radiance.

  • This sounds amazing! I never tried YSL primers, but I will definitely give this a try!

  • My favourite primer is the L’oreal Studio secrets :) It’s a shame these products didn’t work for you considering the price, I don’t have oily skin either so I find that the slightest bit of powder works best for me :)
