I'm intrigued by the mixed reviews here. I bought this about a year ago based on the review boards and it quickly became a "must have" in my routine. It's definitely *not* a concealer (as in, opaque coverage), which probably accounts for some of the reviews: rather, it's a lightweight, sheer, light-reflecting fluid. No glitter whatsoever that I can see, just light reflecting. Has almost no visible texture on the skin. So how does that help? If you blend some into dark areas of your face (under your eyes, the fold of your nose, laugh lines, etc.) it markedly lightens them without visible coverage like concealer. Everything just seems brighter and the folds look less deep. Extra-opaque concealers still weren't completely covering my under eye circles-- and they were starting to look cakey on my 40+ skin -- but I've found that a dab of TE first with a very light pat of concealer on top gives bright, total coverage without any visible makeup texture. It got kudos from me right away for it's blendability: it has just enough slip to blend easily, but no greasiness whatsoever to irritate my extremely oily, acne prone skin. If you have great skin, you should skip this product entirely. If you have flaws you'd like lightened, though, this could be helpful for you. Thankfully it's never gone bad for me: I wash the brush head periodically just in case, though. Simple soap, rinse under the tap and leave it upright to dry overnight. Doesn't leak into the product at all. Number 2 has enough yellow tones for my light olive complextion. Two thumbs up!
Bought this in Tokyo (Duty free!) for my dark circles and WOW! This is THE only concealer that works well for my circles. Even better than MUFE's Lift concealer. This color is perfect for my NC30 skintone. My new favorite concealer for eyes.
I've jsut used it for the first time and I've got to agree with some members here, I'm not impressed with it especially with all the hype about it. Doesn't conceal dark circles or anything at all, makes the puffiness even more puffy and it is slightly oily.
It does go on quite smoothly and adds a bit of a glow to the skin but nothing special for that amount of money.
I'll only be re-purchasing it unless I found somewhere REALLY cheap or at a duty-free
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! It great for highlighting and brightening my skin. I use Guerlain concealer, TE No2 and blush and I'm out the door. My skin looks great and it really makes my blush color pop more. Only drawback - its a bit pricey. But, It's definitely a repurchase. I stopped using my Dior radiance pen because I love TE so much!
Smooth, easy to blend formula, but shade #2 shows up ashy on my NC30 skin (undereyes), which actually highlights a flaw i'm trying to make less obvious. this is probably better suited as a highlighter for my complexion and not a concealer, but since i'd prefer a concealer and don't really need a highlighter, Touche Eclat is not very useful to me.
This is definitely part of the "Must Have Collection" GREAT product. Now, with that being said, I don't have dark circles or puffiness under my eyes. I use this product for more of a highlighting tool. It's perfect for a flawless look. I do not agree with the "reverse raccoon eyes" comment at all. Yes, it's a little pricey but well worth it. It will forever be a staple product for me.
I know that this is sacrilige but I think all 'light reflecting/highlighters' should be banned from under they eyes. As already pointed out in some reviews this just 'highlights' any fine lines and, it's sold as a conclealer/highlighter (surely a contradiction?), but it does NOTHING to cover dark shadow. You look like a reverse panda and I also agree with the reviews that said this smells awful, plus you can't clean the brush!
This is the most overrated underperforming product I've ever experienced.
great texture, does not actually cover the dark circles but makes it not so black......gives the face some radiance. the brush makes it easy to apply. would consider buying if feeling rich, as it cost sgd 52.
Good points: Good colour, decent coverage, easy to use, no spillage in my bag (v. important) and fuss free.
Bad Points: £22 for a concealer! ouch! Also the brush starts to smell funky after a while- not good. Colour not as good a match as Prescriptives concealor wand. Will purchase if I find it in duty free tho
I can't stand thick concealers, and even the wand-type ones with the sponge tip can be a little too thick for me. This is beautiful stuff. Very light and fluid, but actually provides the coverage I need! Very natural looking, too--you really can't see that I'm wearing concealer, like you can with other concealers I've used. I bought it primarly for the darkness under my eyes, but also use it to cover the redness on the sides of my nose, and other compexion nasties. Stays put, doesn't settle into lines, and goes on like the fluid it is. I brush it on and smooth it in with my ring finger. Can't complain at all about this product since it delivers, but dang, it should be a little less pricey! Interesting comments about the product going rancid after a while. I do note that the instructions say that you should wipe off the brush every week with isopropyl alcohol--perhaps doing a little preventative maintenaince along these lines would help keep the product fresh.
