Do you find yourself meticulously putting on your makeup every morning, only to have it smudged by the time you arrive at work, no thanks to Singapore’s everyday heat and humidity? If so, you are not alone. The unwelcome grease not only feels uncomfortable, it makes it impossible for makeup to adhere seamlessly to the skin, creating an unattractive mask-like effect instead.

Cosmetic company YSL Beauty recently expanded its flagship All Hours foundation range, which offers 24-hour shine-control. Apart from the well-loved All Hours Foundation ($98), the comprehensive range includes the brand-new All Hours Cushion Foundation ($92, refill $58), All Hours Setting Powder ($82) and All Hours Universal Setting Powder ($75).

YSL BEAUTY All Hours Foundation ($98)


Featuring super-fine micro particles and a waterproof, oil-free formula, All Hours Foundation provides matte coverage and is especially suitable for oil-prone skin types who want full coverage. Good news! This liquid foundation is now available in even more shades. Locally, you’ll be able to find up to 20 skin tones, so whether your skin tone is fair or honey brown, YSL Beauty ensures that you’ll be able to find the right foundation shade.

Just as exciting is the brand-new All Hours Cushion Foundation! Design-wise, the All Hours Cushion Foundation retains YSL Beauty’s signature minimalism with silver and matte black packaging, both stylish and elegant. In addition to providing full coverage comparable to a liquid foundation, it provides SPF 50+ for additional skin protection. How great is that?

So, how do you choose between the liquid foundation and the cushion foundation? YSL Beauty professional makeup artist, Lala Chin, recommends using the liquid foundation at home and carrying the nifty cushion foundation out with you for touch-ups. If you have oily skin, consider using the cushion foundation after you have applied liquid foundation. The additional step not only strengthens coverage, you’ll find that your makeup adheres more closely to the skin. Finish with All Hours Setting Powder for a long-lasting, natural finish.


There’s more. The brand has also launched new All Hours Powder compacts and the colour-free All Hours Universal Setting Powder compact. Their unique oil-absorbing formula keeps the skin free of shine and greasiness for up to 24 hours to maintain a refreshing, matte finish.

The difference between the two? Lala says: “Those who do not like an overly powdery finish can opt for the translucent All Hours Universal Setting Powder. The colourless formula is light and looks natural. If you use All Hours Setting Powder, you’ll get stronger, fuller coverage.” All Hours Setting Powder is currently available in eight shades that are compatible with shades of All Hours Foundation and All Hours Cushion Foundation.
