FOTD’s with YSL Fusion Ink

I thought about doing a review of Fusion Ink with all manner of swatches and what not, but there’s plenty of info out there in the general sense. So I’ll tell you what works for me. You need the teeniest bit to make it work (basically whatever comes out on the little plastic wand). Best blended with fingers in feathery strokes (like Armani Maestro Fusion). This formula is thin, bonds instantly (sets in about 30 seconds), and stays put with little to no blotting. Powder is actually optional with this foundation.


Coverage is sheer to medium, and can be layered to full. It all depends on how much you layer. This is perfect for oily skin types. I can see it being a problem for drier skins. It bonds so completely that it might cause skin to flake. It’s a bit heavy on the fragrance (cucumber) and alcohol (which is why it’s so drying). If you’re sensitive, steer clear. But if you can handle it, it’s a great foundation. My color is B65:

  1. I was finally able to try this foundation and landed on B65 as well. Unfortunately the finish looked really flat on me. And I don’t like the wand applicator. Have you had a chance to try Laura Mercier Flawless Fluide. Amber or Praline should be the first two you try. Surprisingly good coverage.

  2. I’m sorry the finish didn’t work out for you Linda. 😦 Laura Mercier foundations and I do not really get along. My skin hasn’t been right since that tinted moisturizer. All of her other variations tend to exacerbate my acne. I’m not sure why. I haven’t worn a Laura Mercier foundation in years.

  3. I found the TM to cause a problem with my skin as well. I thought it was just me since people raved about it. I’ve tried the new Flawless Fluide twice and didn’t have a reaction to it. Our biggest issue is finding the perfect shade. The Amber is a touch too light and super yellow. The Praline is a hair dark.
