YSL LE TEINT TOUCHE ÉCLAT Illuminating Foundation SPF 19, 1.0 oz for $55.00
Here is the foundation color guide that YSL put out. It is not the most helpful without actual color swatches to compare, but it gives you an idea. For instance, did you notice that BD 30 appears to be a more golden yellow than BD 40, assuming that the color guide is an accurate indication of color intensity and undertone differences.
B30 appears to have a distinct yellow-peach tone, compared to the BD40, which is lighter and pinkier. While B40 looks warmer than BD40 which makes no sense, but when B40 dries down, you can see a hint of peach in there on my yellow-green skin. The YSL Color Chart is a little odd. Some of the Beige colors appear to have more warmth than the Beige Dore colors. Also, I noticed that despite the large number of shades, there can be significant jumps from one shade to the next. BD40 is significantly lighter than BD50, which appears to be a light golden tan-brown. My ideal shade would be between BD40 and BD50. BD30 is not available in the U.S. even though it appears to have more warmth than BD40.
