Here's another take on the ubiquitous BB Cream product - done only as Yves Saint Laurent can. Yves Saint Laurent Top Secrets All-In-One BB Cream Skintone Corrector can multitask - depending on your skin's condition and the type of look you want on any given day.
On the average day, I loved using this as a version of a BB cream/foundation for light coverage and added moisture. The dark shade, shown above, was a good match (although it looked darker than my skin out of the tube). It seemed that this did a bit of "color adjustment" on my skin after applying it. It was creamy and silky, but very lightweight. It provided great moisture for my drier areas like cheeks, and I loved that sun protection was taken care of in one step as well (SPF 25).
This also did provide some skin tone evening when used daily (via Vitamin C, not Hydroquinone), but if you have significant dark circles or hyperpigmentation, you will still need a heavier foundation/concealer as well. The feel on the skin is one of the best qualities of this product - it felt like it was literally melting into my skin. I didn't experience any clogged pores or irritation while using the product. It should also be noted I found this to be a better product for those with drier skin overall.
This is also a very good product for those of you who need more coverage, but want a multi-taking primer. Used as a primer, this was fantastic for holding my foundation in place, providing a beautiful smooth canvas and providing just a bit of added radiance to the skin which made the foundation look even better. While not an oil control product per se, I did notice that when using this as a primer over an oil free/matte foundation, I had much less oil in my T-Zone at the end of the day.
As far as shades, there are only 3 in the range so far (one of them is "clear"), which may be a downside for some of you who fall in between some of the shades, but overall, this is a luxe BB Cream which is certainly worth the $ and will also last a good amount of time, as it's also quite concentrated. - RLB
