Reviewed and recommended: YSL Teint Parfait

March 21, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 4 Comments
Yves Saint Laurent's Teint Parfait Complexion Enhancer is one of the those products (rather like YSL's Touche Eclat) that I always have at least three of (one in the bathroom, one in a purse, one in the drawer of my desk). There isn't much more to say about it really, other than it simply works: it really does enhance the complexion - as in you look like you, but somewhat more presentable.

You can wear it over foundation, in which case you miraculously look like you aren't wearing any. Or on its own. I usually take it neat, not being a big foundation person (except for days when I am an emotional wreck and have the self-esteem of a jilted 17-year-old). Teint Parfait is really more of a highlighter than base or foundation; it balances out the the skin tone, warms you up and looks natural.

    Hi L, no I don't (well not every often). I mostly use the <a href="" rel="nofollow">Osmotics Inner Light</a> these days.

    <p>I'd have to admit that it is chock full of them. I started using this years ago, long before I started looking into all this stuff. It has three parabens. Plus phenoxyethanol and trisodium edta. Although these two (I now know) are potential irritants, I have never had a reaction to using this product. </p>

    <p>So does this contain any preservatives, parabens or anything toxic?</p>
