Raise your hand if you've ever painstakingly created a glowing summer makeup look only to have it melt off the moment you step outside. Keeping your products on the lighter side is the way to go, and that's where YSL's Summer Skin Duo comes in. It offers two hero products from the designer beauty collection, and with two full months of summer to go, it's on sale at Nordstrom.
The Summer Skin Duo includes the Touche Éclat Blur Primer and the Touche Éclat All-Over Glow Powder that work together to create a flawless glow. The primer preps the skin for your favorite foundation and leaves it feeling silky. It's lightweight, so it doesn't weigh you down, and it leaves tiny gold flecks that catch the light for a subtle shimmer. The powder, meanwhile, works as a highlighter and illuminates the entire face.

The Touche Éclat Blur Primer has earned a permanent place in Nordstrom customers' beauty routines. "From the moment I put it on my face, I knew that it would forever be my holy grail primer," one shopper writes. "It is the softest, smoothest, and most moisturizing primer I have ever tried. Even though it is very moisturizing, there is nothing greasy to it. Immediately after application, my face is ready to apply foundation."
Another shopper says that the primer is great for oily skin and doesn't contribute to excess oil production. "I have oily acne-prone skin, so I get worried about the products I use. I've tried some primers that actually dry my skin out or leave it feeling heavy but not this one."
The Glow Powder has also earned a glowing reputation with shoppers, so to speak. With reviews that call the powder a "one-of-a-kind product" and "my new ride or die," shoppers agree that it's an essential part of a summer makeup routine.
"It only makes sense to order the duo set," another reviewer concludes. "You save money, and they are great together. I was skeptical at first because of the price, but I have already received three compliments on my skin." And you really do save: Purchased individually, the primer and the powder cost a total of $100, and the products in this kit are full size.
The YSL Summer Skincare Duo is available at Nordstrom right now for $48, and don't be surprised if it's gone by the time the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts on July 28.
