This innovative little compact has a creamy balm texture, which makes it super easy to apply, but dries down to a soft-focus finish that blurs pores. It's a win, win!

It comes with a handy two-sided applicator, a sponge on one side and a brush on the other, but I prefer to use a small domed contouring brush for applying this to the hollows of my cheeks and along my temples and jaw for a perfect sun kissed finish.

It comes in seven shades to suit a range of complexions, I tried out shade 2 which creates a lovely, natural contour on my pale skin. There's no shimmer in there at all, and it feels lovely and comfortable on the skin, lasting really well throughout the day without fading.

Here it is worn below with just a small amount of lightweight foundation, a quick and easy makeup look for daytime!

The YSL Le Teint Sahariennes bronzer is available in stockists nationwide, priced at €45.
