Finally tried this. I love it. Great formula. If you're expecting a Mac concealer stay away. If you want healthy highlighted skin then welcome. Beautifully highlights filled brows and the eye area for me without making me feel like I'm wearing a mask. If you have big eye bags then this won't work as you need a proper concealer.
Colours: I am a nc20. Number one was too pink. Number 2 was too light ( was told its more suited to fair Asian skin tones). Number 2.5 is perfect for me.
I don't know if anyone realizes this but this pen is basically just a foundation in a stick that is overpriced? Not a fan of this product.
This is one of those cult products that everyones talks about, but I don' really get the hype. It has a very light texture and it's easy to blend, but it didn't provide any sort of high lighting effect on my undereye area (let alone any coverage). It might be the shade, number 2, but I chose that one because the other shades were either too pink or too dark, this one seemed like a better match for my fair with slight yellow undertoned skin.
I wouldn't repurche even if it was a lot cheaper.
Was disappointed in this product as it did nothing really for my undereyes or even as a highlighter. I tried to truly love this product as there was so much Hype around it.
I found it did not conceal my eye baggies as much as it claimed it should and there was just too much shimmer on my oily-prone skin.
For the amount of $$ it costs i found it to be a waste. If your looking for a great highlighting product try The Givenchy Mister Light pen- works 100% better and does wonders for lighting up the eye area- Give that one a try before your spend your money on the YSL one.
Nice product, and expensive ($41 at the time of writing). As a luxury item, with it's pretty packaging and the enjoyment I have using it, I'd repurchase if a cruelty-free stash wasn't something I've become devoted to. But now I'm charged with the difficult task of finding a replacement: tall order, imo. Touch Eclat (radiant touch) just does a brilliant job at bringing light to my nw20-ish face. The formula isn't shimmery, it's not shiny, it's not a concealer, it really does just brighten with it's super light pink, sheerness. I love it most when I'm traveling, it's an instant brightener slash sleep-in-a-click-pen-miracle and one of the most indispensable products I carry with me. My favorite ares to use it are: inner corners of my eyes, that triangle from inner eyes-nose-outter corner of the eye, or the top of cheek bones, down the center of my nose, even in the nasolabial folds to help minimize them--I can't believe that actually works, even just a little bit, it takes years off.
A necessary product?---Ultimately, no, but that's a difficult decision because while not a *necessity*, it's all sorts of wonderful. If you're not worried about cruelty-free, you should definitely give it a shot. I'll update if I can ever find a cruelty-free dupe.
I normally wouldn't be upset about the price but this product made me really mad. Everyone was talking about it how it's wonderful so I decided to give it a try. First I used it as a concealer (a mua at sephora said it's a concealer), ofcourse it didn't worked that way. So I researched it and I decided to use that as a highlighter (because it was actually a highlighter) it made me even more mad. It didn't highlight my face and even very small amount product made my face "cakey". It was really awful. I don't understand how this product became popular this much!
This product really does deserve it's fabulous reputation. There will always be a spot in my makeup bad for this. Really cures the appearance of a hangover, a bad night's sleep or a generally blah skin day.
I bought this product with great hopes and have been disappointed. I went back to using my MAC highlighter pen which I absolutely love for half the price.
While the packaging is wonderful and makes you feel very "luxurious" while using it.
The product itself did not blend well for me and barely even shows up after a few minutes on my skin. This was just not the right product for my olive skin.
This product is great. Whilst it illuminates the skin amazingly it does not leave my face with a tacky glittery/shimmery finish. It blends perfectly with my pale skin leaving a natural glow rather than the white tinge that some illuminators can cause. I use it on all the usual spots – eyes, bridge of my nose, cupids bow and a little on the middle of the forehead. Will definitely buy again it has become a staple for me even on make-up free days.
Ah Touche Eclat, I love you so! Definitely one of the elusive HG's for me :)
I bought this purely because of the hype and as a treat to myself - little did I know that I would fall in love - I'm on my third one now!
I first used this as an under eye concealer, which worked quite well for me, although I did find that it was almost too thick for the delicate under eye skin. Now, as my makeup knowledge and application skill has developed, I use it as a highlighter with my contouring, and it is FANTASTIC. One thing I really appreciate is that this actually shows up on my super pale skin. I love it for traditional highlighting around my eye area, bridge of my nose, forehead and chin, but I also love it for sharpening around my eyebrows and lips. Just SO beautiful.
Packaging is gold and gorgeous, although the click pen is undeniably a bit annoying as you lose a little bit of product, and you can't tell how much you have left.
Highly pigmented, easily blended, just gorgeous. Is it expensive? Yeah a bit. Is it worth the money? Absolutely. Would I re-purchase? Until they stop making it!
