YSL’s Skincare for Makeup Lovers (win it) Yves Saint Laurent is approaching skincare from a makeup lover’s point of view this month with the introduction of Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow. The concept is skincare plus makeup equals multitasking hybrid products for all complexions. This product promises 72 hours of hydration with a blurring radiance enhancer. Wear it alone, pre or post foundation.
“Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow has an ultra-sensorial texture that durably hydrates the skin and carries the blurring technology of an invisible foundation. Within seconds, skin adopts the softness of satin and makeup appears more beautiful than ever before, says Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Makeup, YSL Beaute.
Busy and successful by day, a gregarious fun-seeker by night; the edgy urbanite is a multitasking chameleon – and she expects her skincare to be the same. This formula is designed to enhance her makeup.
“YSL Beaute has devised a new study called the ‘Satin Skin Test’. An exclusive monitoring system analyses the vibration and pattern of both the skin and satin. After application, Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow transforms the skin with the tactile softness of satin in a matter of seconds. Its texture is the perfect canvas to improve the radiance of your makeup and make it last longer,” says Caroline Negre, Scientific Communication Director, YSL Beaute. She says a hydractive complex offers supercharged active hydration. A neo-skin powder intuitively adapts and fuses with the complexion to contribute to a smoother and even skintone. A blacklight complex intelligently interacts with surrounding light to scatter rays in a superluminous finish that helps makeup to work harder.
You’ll notice the texture is lighter and more sensorial. That is due to a pioneering gel texture that breaks into micro-sized water droplets delivering a burst of refreshment. These droplets instantly quench thirsty skin.
“Instant Moisture Glow can be applied as a primer. Its blur effect minimizes the appearance of imperfections, facilitates the application of makeup and prolongs its wear and its glow,” adds Simmonds. “You can even apply it throughout the day over foundation to instantly plump skin.”
