YSL Souffle D’Eclat Translucent Powder

YSL Souffle D'Eclat Translucent Powder

The one where you meet a translucent powder that soaks up excess shine and makes your skin look amazeballs? Yeah, that’s what’s going on here.

I just want to do a quick post about this because I’ve been using it for the last couple of weeks non stop and it deserves the love.

I’ve used many translucent powders in the past; some amazing, some not but this one really takes the biscuit and I’ll tell you why. The weather here is ridiculous – particularly this time of year, and although I sometimes loathe to use powder it becomes a bit of a need in May, June, July and August. And er, September and October… damn this never-ending summer! 🙂

This saves the day (and your face) – it somehow manages to reduce shine and make your skin look flawless without actually showing up on your skin! The formula is amazing; so light and silky and I swear it blurs the skin slightly, although I just be delirious from the heat…

If you have oily or very oily skin or if you live in a hot climate like me, then you need this in your life. That is all 🙂

It’s available in four shades from all YSL counters in the Middle East or online here.

    Love your blog but you use the word “amazeballs” way too much.

    Simone, how does this compare to the Laura Mercier mineral powder? I’m currently loving LM.

      I have LM too and love it. Differences are YSL one is much more translucent, if you know what I mean – not really something you would use on it’s own – morre for finishing off makeup, and it’s significantly finer/lighter than LM xx

    Is the coverage for this one as good as the LM powder? I bought the LM one based on your and Laura F’s blogs and am obsessed with it!
