YSL Beauty’s Le Cushion Encre de Peau Is the Next Beauty Staple You Need To Cop

A cushion compact foundation is a must-have beauty essential in anyone’s purse, no matter the occasion. It’s the perfect go-to when you’re in need of a touchup at any time of the day, and it’s especially handy at a time when our makeup is constantly being compromised by our face masks.

At the luxe end of the spectrum, luxury beauty brands have also made it a point to launch beautifully-crafted “couture” compacts that match their high fashion counterparts. Take YSL Beauty for instance. They’ve just released a new version of their iconic cushion compact, which you’ll immediately want, for obvious reasons.

The highly-raved Le Cushion Encre de Peau that was first launched in 2016, is reinvented in this new cushion that’s set to debut this August. The iconic ink-in-cushion sees a new formula,  skin benefits and most notably, it comes with a unique couture design that doubles as the perfect accessory that would complement any purse.

Infused with natural ingredients including Jasmine Petals from the YSL Ourika Gardens, the cushion compact delivers a shine-free, matte finish that smooths out your complexion without drying your skin. The reinvented formula also boasts a Neo Skin Powder active which helps to absorb sebum while its jasmine petals work to deliver a radiant finish to your look.

Now, you may be familiar with the packaging of Le Cushion Encre de Peau’s predecessor, which sports a sleek and polished black and gold compact. The reinvented compact, however, sees a whole new sophisticated look. Featuring the iconic signatures of Saint Laurent, the compact now sports the signature chevron quilt, embellished with the YSL Cassandre logo for the perfect classy touch. Don’t be surprised, you’ll be the envy of all your friends once you whip this bad boy out.

The YSL Beauty Le Cushion Encre de Peau cushion compact is also refillable and will offer 8 shades for you to choose from.


YSL BEAUTY’S Le Encre De Peau Cushion 2020 ($102) and the cushion refill ($62) are available from 1 August at all YSL Beauté stores at ION Orchard, VivoCity, Raffles City Shopping Centre, Metro Paragon, TANGS at TANG Plaza, BHG Bugis, and Takashimaya S.C., and online at TANGS.com, Metro.com, Isetan.com.sg, BHG.com.sg.
