Product Description

An illuminating primer that blurs imperfections and boosts the radiance of foundation. Touche Elcat Blur Primer preps skin for foundation application, creating an improved, refined appearance: pores seem to be minimized, skin texture feels smoother, and skin tone is more even. It’s enriched with four nourishing oils—corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil—to leave skin feeling incredibly soft without a greasy residue. Packed with blur technology, this universal primer provides a subtle, golden shimmer for ultimate luminosity.

How To Apply: 

Primer may be applied under foundation to create a perfected canvas or worn alone to maximize radiance. 
Apply one pump of primer on the back of the hand. 
Using a brush or your fingers, apply with gentle sweeping motions from the center of the face outward. 
Leave to melt into skin for 10 seconds before applying foundation.

  • "this primer does for sure blur your pores. however, i don't think it's good to use with all foundations. my skin is more oilier than dry and i don't think this helps my makeup last any longer nor helps me stay more matte. if you have dry skin, i think this primer will work well with your skin type." in 145 reviews

This Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Primer is awesome! It reminds me of smashboxes formula just with a bit of glitter in it. It’s not oily, and very light on my skin.

The formula didn’t irritate my skin and it holds my makeup in place all day. I sweat a lot (I live in a desert) and so that’s my primary judge in a primer, if it can withstand the heat I can stand it!

#yslbeauty never fails to impress me! I have truly enjoyed the few samples I’ve tried of theirs. This is something I would consider buying when I’m in the market for a new primer. The extra sparkle is not too much, great for a fun subtle shimmer.

One of two cosmetics products I consider HG.

I had extremely oily skin as a teen, and now have extremely dry, dehydrated skin as an adult. This means that I have some of the issues that both ends of the spectrum have dealt with. I've used a number of different primers and most have been meh. This one has been a game changer for it.

It has a gel like consistency in the bottle, but dries rapidly to a soft, almost luxuriously powder feeling finish. I've tried it with some truly crappy foundations that patch and break apart in under an hour on my face- this primer kept it on all day. My pores- some of which may better be known as gaping caverns of despair- look almost invisible. It gives a little bit of that inner candlelit glow without looking like a glowstick exploded on my nose four hours in.

I am of the firm belief that money does not determine the efficacy of a product, but in this case, you are more than getting your money's worth, even with the high pricetag. Will repurchase forever.

I tried this primer expecting to be disappointed in it because the ingredients are very simplistic - silicones, oils, fragrance, and mica. I wore it for my graduation and it did help my makeup wear all day and it did make it go on smooth and hide my pores and wrinkles, but it also made me break out pretty badly - which is really no surprise because of the amount of silicones and fragrance. While it claims to be noncomedogenic I would be skeptical of that and judge for yourself based on what you know about your own skin. It did seem to make my skin more radiant than if I used a different primer, but I wonder if that is just because it is oil based rather than the mica suspended in it. Overall, I’m not impressed and will never wear it again because the resulting acne just isn’t worth it, but if you have pretty resilient skin it might be great for you!

I received a large sample of this as a point perk. While the packaging is really nice and and the primer is gorgeous, I don’t care for it. It’s very silicone-y, the two first ingredients are two different silicones. It definitely gives you skin that slippery feel but I don’t feel that it really blurred out my skin and I also feel that my makeup wore off at a faster rate than before. I am going to try it a few more times but there are other primers that I prefer, especially for the cost of this one.

I was able to get a deluxe sample of the YSL Touché Éclat Blur Primer from the redeeming my points at the Sephora Rewards. Because of the price point ($52), I didn’t want to commit to buying and then returning if I didn’t like it. The product goes on smooth, lightweight and almost feels like a gel/silicone consistency. It has gold shimmer specs in the formula which does show a little bit but barely noticeable. It doesn’t feel greasy or oily when you apply or when it dries. It does blur my skin to make a smooth canvas for makeup application. It also smells nice without being strong or obnoxious either. This would definitely be a contender to purchase a full size.

I love, love, LOVE this primer! I'm not sure what kind of science/magic is going on here, but you take what looks like a gel, and then go to apply it and find it has transformed into what feels like the most delicate powder known to man. Your skin looks incredibly smooth and feels super soft just from applying this primer alone. I also find that applying all my other makeup (foundation, concealer, highlighter, etc) is much easier when I use this as a base. It definitely makes me look airbrushed, and keeps my look in place ALL day long (even in the hot summer months).

I have a confession to make.... I’m a huge sucker for beauty & skincare line. That’s one of my top high-end go-to brands. I don’t really care for a review when my buying YSL beauty, but it’s good to do so sometimes. In this case, I bought because of my experience w/it brand. As much as I like the primer, I have noticed that I get oily really fast w/their very own foundation, & two other foundation brands. I don’t see pores minimized, but my pores aren’t that big anyway. It adds a shine to your skin, for an oily person like me I have to big careful w/the amount used & I mixed it w/other primers & gel/oil free moisturizer.

I have been a die hard fan of the hour glass mineral veil primer for years. So, while expensice, the price wasn't shocking. I absolutely love this primer. The bottle is small, but a little goes a looong way, and I can see this lasting awhile. Not greasy, absorbs quickly, and looks great under my foundation and concealer. Adds just a little extra to my look without being too much. I am not a huge glitter person, like at all, and easy worried about the glitter in this primer. But I think that is the magic of this primer. The glitter isn't noticeable at all.

This is such a beautiful and elegant primer! After applying it, it literally looks like you're wearing a snap chat filter and gold butterflies are floating on top of your head. This leaves the skin so soft for the whole day and make-up stays on longer looking good. Sometimes I even wear it with nothing else, because it even improved my skin tone and appearance so much! So sad I finished it really fast. Love love love 💕

I would love to give this product more than three stars, but I personally cannot.  This product is not meant for my very oily skin type.  Does it go no smoothly?  Yes.  Does it give the skin a nice glow?  Yes.  Does foundation (silicone based) go overtop well?  Absolutely.  However, if you are oily, your oils will begin showing through probably about an hour after applying your makeup.  By the end of the day, my makeup has worn off in patches or is sliding off my face in a very unflattering fashion.  I don't blame the primer, other than to say it does not hold onto makeup if you have oily skin.  I am also not a huge fan of the glitter.  Although the glitter is micro and you don't really see it on your face, it gets all over your hands.  I would love to love this product, but I don't.
