Hydrate. Conceal. Correct. Protect. Prime.  YSL Top Secrets all-in-one BB Cream Skintone Perfector primes the skin to conceal imperfections with nonstop hydration for all complexions. SPF 25.  Available in 3 shades - Dark, Light, and Medium.  I was pretty excited about this product since I find YSL products, especially their foundations, awesome.  Turns out, though, it's only available in 3 shades - none of which are any sort of a match for my skin tone.  I did get some swatches, though, to share :D

Of late, BB creams/CC creams have become quite the trend.  Unfortunately, though a lot of them are limited by the number of shades they offer.  YSL seems to have gone the same route with 3 extreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeemely different shades.  I am not sure how many people would find their skin-tone match in this kind of a shade selection.  I could probably do some careful mixing and matching with Dark and Medium and hope to come up with something close to my color, but considering I already go through that with my foundation and tinted moisturizer, I don't want to spend $100 on another pair to play around with!!!

  1. Really don't mean to rant but it breaks my heart that so many big brands don't provide shades for my skin tone. I don't understand why it's that way :(

    1. Oh but it is perfectly rant-worthy topic! The deep shades at least seems to have made someone happy (comment below) :D :D

  2. Really don't know why from the beginning of a product launch a brand will limit the commercial viability of a product. Dum dums.

  4. Wow, what a strange selection of colours!!! I had high hopes clicking open this post because the Touche Eclat foundation is said to have such a good shade range (haven't tried it though). Bummer, once again ;).
    I know what you mean about the foundation and tinted moisturiser mixes and I read your post about going from Nars AnnaPurna to St Moritz. I actually mix mostly St Moritz with a pinhead of Cuba for my full summer colour, since Annapurna is just so orange. Same with the Nars foundations, I have Stromboli, Barcelona and Syracuse to mix in varying ratios at different times of the year. LOL!

    1. :D It is quite a strange collection, isn't it? I wonder if they drew lots to figure out which 3 lucky skintones they will make the product for :D :D

  5. LOL, maybe its my lucky day but the dark shade might actually work for me. Even though I do agree that the shade selection seems extremely limited, it is nice to see a high-end brand cater to those of with deep skintones!

    1. Hahahaaaa...it's true, though..I don't know very many brands that do shades for the deeper skintones, at least among the BB/CC creams :D :D

  6. I think it's nice for once. Almost every other brand caters to beige through tan skin, it's nice that YSL actually thought of us fair and deep skin people for once. A fourth tan shade would have been smart, but I think it's nice that they at least tried for diversity, unlike most brands, that exclude everyone who isn't a shade of beige.
