THE UPGRADED ESSENTIAL: YSL BEAUTE ALL HOURS FOUNDATION STICK
It’s even better than the liquid version.
If the name sounds familiar, it’s because a liquid version was originally launched last year – a matte, water- and transfer-proof, full coverage base that claims to last 24 hours, meant to be a fundamental in one’s beauty routine. This solid format adaptation ($88) has all the same qualities, and takes things up more than a notch. Nourishing oils as well as a cream-to-powder texture make blending a breeze, leaving a flattering, soft focus-like finish. And because it’s a stick that’s available in 20 different shades, it can function as a bronzer or highlighter. Even the packaging’s elevated: a black and gold tube that’s more fashionable than the simple yet classy bottle the liquid variation comes in.
