Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer, from Neiman Marcus and  Saks.

“Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer is a skin-loving, all-in-one medium coverage tinted moisturizer with SPF 23 that evens complexion, eliminates dullness and smooths fine lines.  The finest pigments and ingredients that respect and care for the skin. The formula is oil-free, non-comedogenic, talc-free and dermatologist tested.  The coverage is buildable from light to medium”.
