YSL Beauté Les Sahariennes. Sun-Kissed Blur.A new icon is born. Capturing the Yves Saint Laurent spirit; melding it with innovative technology. Les Sahariennes, the first sun-kissed balm-powder blur innovation by YSL Beauté. For contouring or all-over sun-kissed effect. Luminous complexion & solar radiance: it`s a match! YSL Beauté reinvents its traditional codes of bronzing. When the effect of a blur meets the luminosity of the sun. Les Sahariennes, a new and special formula to disguise the appearance of colour imperfections, smoothes the looks of skin`s complexion and enhance the look of skin`s vibrant solar radiance for sun-kissed effect. A buildable, natural healthy looking glow that can be worn all year long. Special powder-in-balm texture An innovative texture, not really a balm, nor a powder, Les Sahariennes is the first patented sun-kissed effect powder-in-balm by YSL Beauté. Concentrated, yet surprisingly lightweight, it transforms from balm to optical powder upon application. Ultra high sensoriality, ultra soft on the skin. The formula contains a combination of oils. Once applied, they evaporate, leaving at the skin`s surface with a matte, uniform finish which evens out the look of skin`s complexion and minimises the appearance of pores. The skin`s texture is seductively soft to the touch. Colour match Dull complexions become a thing of the past; orange and oversaturated tones are replaced by a natural healthy looking, sun-kissed effect. Subtle yet effective, with illuminating and mattifying finish, Les Sahariennes come in a collection of 7 shades from light to dark to match all sun types. A healthy looking glow for 365 days of the year.

The formula goes on as a cream and blends out easily.  Sometimes I use a sponge to make sure it's all well blended and everything looks flawless.  After a minute or two, it sets to a powder finish and almost looks blurred on the skin.  It kind of makes me want to apply it all over my face to see how much blurring we can get away with.  But right now, I'll be happy with a sun kissed glow on the cheeks. I love the matte finish it leaves on the skin, it also gives a soft focus finish that's really flattering. You can't mess up the application of this unless you really go at it and don't blend at all.

Very interesting product. It was suggested by a consultant of ysl in Bloomingdales. I'm glad she introduced it to me because I don't think I would have ever gave it a chance. So interesting how it is a balm but as soon as you apply it and work it onto the skin it changes to a powdery texture. I love to use it alone all over my face when I don't feel like wearing heavy makeup but I still want to have an even skin tone. It blurs the imperfections and minimize the appearance of pores. Has a Matte yet soft and healthy finish. I'm really impressed with it. Also it has that delicious ysl signature scent that all it's beauty products have. Very happy with it!

I love YSL overall. It was my first high end product. I ever purchased. The bronzer was not pigmented and you needed to really dig into the pan with a dense brush. The color when swatched was beautiful. I'm really sad I had to return it!

I love this formula and the shade options are perfection, but I'm giving it 4 stars for 2 reasons... First, the scent is too strong in my opinion, and secondly, there are less expensive products that give the same effect. Otherwise, I like it. It blends well without looking patchy and looks great on top of foundation, or without any at all!

I don't personally use this as a bronzer. I use this as a primer and pore filler and it works beautifully. Though it's pricey it's worth it. My makeup goes on smooth and stays well! As a very dry Colorado resident, this is a holy Grail product!

Home run product !!! This product is amazing! Extremely pigmented yet blendable ! Smooth and silky to the touch and on the skin. I can't see myself ever using this up, a little goes a very long way! I nearly prefer this over the Chanel cream bronzer! The compact is slim which makes it great for travel or on the go. The shade selection is impeccable as well. Couldn't recommend this product enough! Is one of the best cream bronzers I've tried yet !

BEAUTIFUL. This bronzer is such a nice pigmented shade and it blends out like a dream! I'm fair and neutral but I believe this would work on a variety of skin tons perfectly. It is pricey but it's a luxury item that's worth the tag in my opinion! 4/5 only because of price.

This product was love at first try! It is my go to bronzer for an everyday healthy glow. I receive so many compliments on my skin when I wear this. It blurs your pores and warms up your face. I will continue to repurchase until they stop making it. The only downside is the price, but I wait until the YSL sale and stock up. Must have in my collection!

This is the best cream contour I've ever used, hands down. It blends really w lol and looks incredibly natural. I use this over my foundation just around my hair line and in the contours of my cheeks. I will say if the look your going for is heavily sculpted look this may not be the product for you.

I've had my eye on this for a while! I tested it on my hand at the counter and it was so smooth. My question is does it break any one out?

Is this worth the splurge? I already own the Chanel bronze universal but am curious to know if this one is better? I don't wanna spend the money if it's not worth it. Thanks!
