Discover all of the new additions in my full review…
The Most Important Thing About The All Hours Foundation Is…
The skin-loving formula! Infused with hyaluronic acid, the long-lasting foundation provides all-day hydration alongside 24 hours of full coverage. My skin felt softer, smoother, and hydrated immediately after use and post-cleanse at the end of the day. Say goodbye to drying and heavy full coverage formulas and hello to a weightless and breathable formula that offers the same luminous, matte coverage as the original All Hours Foundation. I love that this full-coverage foundation also contains SPF39 or PA+++ so that you can protect your skin from UV damage. I’m blown away with how much this foundation offers: sun protection, all-day hydration and 24 hours of coverage within one formula.
What Does It Look Like On?
The Yves Saint Laurent All Hours Foundation has a radiant, matte finish. The collection contains 40 diverse shades for all skin tones and complexions. Not sure what shade to pick? Try the below trick found in the shade names:
1st digit: your skin tone – Light (L), Medium (M), or Dark (D)
2nd digit: your skin undertone – Cool tones like pink, blue or purple. (C ) Neutral tones are a safe choice if you’re unsure or have mixed tones (N) and Warm tones like peach or yellow (W).
3rd digit: shade intensity from 1-10.
What Skin Type Is It For?
The YSL All Hours Foundation is suitable for all skin types looking for full coverage.
You Will Love This If…
If you loved the original All Hours Foundation, you’ll enjoy the same all-day wear and full coverage but with the addition of skin-caring ingredients. If you’re looking for a dewy, natural finish with medium coverage, I’d recommend the YSL NU Foundation.
The YSL Foundation provides 24-hour coverage, a breathable formula, and hydrated and mattified skin, making it perfect for multi-purpose makeup fans.
The Yves Saint Laurent Foundation is extremely durable with a transfer-proof, waterproof and sportproof formula that’s ready for whatever your day throws at you. Perfect for those of us looking for full coverage whilst enjoying hobbies and sports. The skin-caring foundation contains hyaluronic acid for a hydrated and comfortable complexion; added Jasmine petals sourced from the YSL Ourika Community Gardens help to combat dullness, while neo-skin powders keep your complexion shine-free.
What Does It Feel Like?
Lightweight and breathable. A little goes a long way with this fluid, watery texture that easily glides across the skin, but don’t let the weightless texture fool you the foundation instantly provides high coverage of any marks, blemishes or uneven skin tone.
What’s Special About The Design?
In keeping with Yves Saint Laurents couture heritage, the All Hours Foundation is housed within a luxurious frosted glass bottle that any designer fan would love. The bottle is wrapped in the iconic YSL gold emblem and topped with an easy-to-use pump design for mess-free application.
How Do You Use It?
Apply All Hours Foundation to the centre of the face and work outwards using a beauty blender or brush. By using a dabbing motion, you can achieve a fuller coverage finish; if you’re looking for medium coverage, try using the fingertips or a gliding motion.
