I have been on a mission to test out some new foundations (since finding my favourite Fenty Beauty and my new love, the Too Faced Peach Perfect) so one of the first that I picked up – which was a good handful of months ago – was the YSL All Hours. It is available at Mecca Maxima (in Australia and New Zealand) for the rather expensive price tag of AUD$89 or you can check out the official YSL Beauty website to buy direct (to check stockists).
This is a 24 hour wear foundation that has been really popular with beauty gurus and influencers online. In fact, it’s considered a cult favourite, which is why I decided to try it out. Unfortunately though, I found that my opinion on the product would change and fluctuate a lot over the past few months – which is why I put off reviewing this until now.
I actually do like this foundation and will continue to finish up the product, but it doesn’t have the longevity that I personally need. In comparison to the Fenty Beauty (which is my top favourite and my standard for all foundations now), it falls a bit short even though it is still one of the better ones I’ve tested (I’m looking at you, Huda Beauty). In the end, it just didn’t tick all of the boxes for me, though it comes very close.
So, let’s get right into this review! I’ll try to go into as much detail as I can about the formula and my experiences with it.
