There’s been a buzz in the beauty industry today about a new foundation that YSL are launching on the 20th August 2014 ‘Fusion Ink’. It offers a medium to full coverage, is ideal for anyone who doesn’t like the feel of foundation on their skin, if you like to build up your coverage it’s ideal as it isn’t thick or dry so won’t go cakey. Another big thing going for it is that it contains volatile oils instead of water and powder like most long wear foundations so it only leaves the pigment on your skin.
I read on Money Saving Expert that as part of the Cara Delevingne marketing campaign they were sampling customers until it’s launch date. I headed to Selfridges to pick one up as it’s a larger store they have been allocated more. I was matched to a B10 as I don’t have a yellow or pink undertone the Beige tone suited my skin tone exactly. I tried the foundation this evening and it did feel light weight on my skin, I applied more around my chin and nose where I have more imperfections and I was happy with the result.
As a makeup artist in Manchester I’ve tested a lot of new foundations and I think this one will be perfect for brides who tend to have a combination/oily skin type. as it is long wearing. It also has has a velvety matte appearance so I wouldn’t need to buff as much powder into the skin to achieve a matte finish. I think it will be a great edition to my kit, and it’s reasonable priced at £30.50. However for any of my clients who prefer a dewy finish or have dry skin I’ll always stick to using Chanel ‘Vitalumiere.’

Ask the beauty advisor on the counter to demonstrate the shades, the best place to test it is on your jaw-line, go for the one that disappears into your skin (you might be a slightly warmer shade if you have been on holiday).
