YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer & Blur Perfector

Without a doubt, primers are my "must have" makeup product.  I have oily skin and if I don't use a primer, my face will look like a grease ball within a couple hours.  I have quite a lot of primers, from drugstore to high end, so when I was chosen by Influenster to review these new YSL primers, I was ecstatic!!! [Check out my Open Box and First Impressions video here.]

First of all, let's just admire the beautiful packaging. L O V E 

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer
Price: $52 for 1.0 fl oz.
Can be purchased here

This is an illuminating primer that blurs imperfections and leaves your skin looking smooth and radiant.  If you see closely, it contains small specks of gold glitter which is what helps your skin glow.  It claims to help minimize the appearance of pores, smooth out skin and even skintone.  It contains four nourishing oils which are corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil.  Although the ingredients are mostly oils, this does not leave a greasy residue.  In fact, once applied, it leaves your skin looking matte and smooth.  I honestly didn't see a difference in the radiance part but I did notice that my skin felt smooth and when foundation was applied it worked really well. 

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector
Price: $55.00
Can be purchased here.

This is a blur perfector in a compact.  It helps blur out any imperfections such as the appearance of enlarged pores, oilyness, or uneven skin tone. It is a balm but once applied to the skin it transforms into a powder.  It helps soften skin's imperfections and creates a rosy-glow effect.  This can be applied in three ways: on its own, before makeup application, or as a touch up to sweep away shine.  This is a universal shade and works with any skin tone.

I've been using these products for over 2 weeks now and I am really liking them.  Using my fingers, I apply the blur primer all over my face then I apply a bit of the blur perfecter on areas where my pores are more visible such as my nose and cheeks.   Both products left my skin matte and smooth.  Once I applied my foundation, I noticed that my skin looked smooth and the foundation just glided on like warm butter on bread.  As for as lasting power, I noticed I got a bit oily after 4-5 hours.  I'm an oily girl so I don't expect my face to be looking matte all day.  This was actually pretty good compared to other primers in which I start getting oily after 3-4 hours.  Overall, these products work great for me and I like them.  Would I repurchase?  Probably not.  Although a little goes a long way, I can't seem to pay $50.xx for a primer.  The way my funds are set up [Kevin Hart voice]....

Have any of you tried these products?  If so, did you like them, hate them?  What is your favorite current face primer?  I'd love to hear from you guys.  :)
