Bought this for the second time and i still love it. It works easy, makes my undereye area lighter.. like magic. Love it. This is definately my HG.
i have the ysl touche eclat in #2 an #8. #2 is a bit light for my nc25/30 complexion but works very well for my slight undereye circles. #8 is more yellowy/gold and i find works better for my complexion. but the product itself is very nice and very useful for touchups and highlighting. the price point is evidently a big issue but ive had my #8 for over 6 months and product still pours out when i click it! And i use it at least 4x a week. will be purchasing again :)
This pen is one of my holy grail products, as it is for many others. People need to understand that the Touche Eclat isn't really concealer, it is a brightener. It works wonders for what it is meant for, which is to brighten up under the eyes, plump them up a bit to take away the look of fatigue as well as give the area some shimmer to create a light refracting effect, blurring the area. It is also a wonderful highlight on the cheekbones, and it creates a wonderful base on the lid before eye makeup. I will always repurchase the product for as long as I live. It is AMAZING
I am absolutely in love with Touche Eclat. I have some discoloration around the corners of my eyes, close to my nose and I have never been able to cover it completely with foundation or concealer. This makeup brightens up my skin and is light reflective, but not glittery or shimmery. I usually apply it over my foundation and set it with powder if I want to avoid a dewy look. If that is my goal, I apply it after my foundation and powder. I usually wear it around my eyes, cheekbones and around my nose (I also have some discoloration there). It provides such a natural glow, I just hope the product lasts long (first time buying).
I like this, it does a lovely job at lightly concealing by reflecting light... but... in Australia this costs over $74 and it just isn't worth the money. I'd buy it again, because I do like it... but just not as a 'staple product'... only when i'm in the mood for a luxury item!
It does last a while despite only being a couple of mils of product.
Another overly hyped product that I fell for and it ended being crap. It's just foundation in a tube??! I totally agree with the reviewer who said about the tube getting finger marks all over it, it really does and it looks awful. The lightest one was the only one which would work for me and it is far too pink. It looked unnatural under the eye and wasn't light enough to highlight. It doesn't last long, is overly expensive and I definitely wouldn't purchase again.
Pretty happy with this although I've only used it three times so I'm still learning the best techniques and places to put it.
It's a nice formula and the pinky colour (I've got No.1) really does help to light up my face and cover my dark areas. Genetically, I have quite bad eye bags (thanks Dad!) so I put on some concealer, then my foundation and then use this over the top to really brighten my face. It blends into my foundation perfectly.
I have been using this for a few years now. A makeup artist told me about it when I was at a photo shoot. I love how it makes me look bright-eyed! Especially in photos and late at night. I apply it on my brow bone and in the corners of my eyes to lighten the shadows. I use under my eyes in place on concealer for moderate dark circles and just above my slight bags. It doesn't settle in the fine lines like most concealers do. This is a "highlighter" so be sure to apply it correctly so that you don't highlight your flaws! I put a little around my lips and on the middle part of my upper lip (bow) to make my lips look fuller. At night I put a tad on my cheek bones to catch the light. Can't live without it!
This is one of the rare highly-touted products that actually lives up to its billing. I've been using this for about 15 years (God, I'm old!) I discovered this in college and though it cost me an arm and a leg back then (and is still expensive today), I clung to every drop of it.
Back then, it was only available in shade No. 1 but it worked well for me and all my other friends that had different skin tones. Somehow, that light pink color worked for all of us. I use it exclusively as an under eye concealer and it always made me look fresher and more wide-awake than I actually was. Touche Eclat was superb when I worked 18-hour days rushing to meet deadlines, traveled constantly to different climates, and perked my eyes and face up for dreary morning meetings. There doesn't seem to be very much product in that pen, and I would have to replace it quite quickly. But it seems like money well spent when it performed the kind of miracles it has for me.
In the past few years, I've strayed and tried other concealers out of curiosity or boredom but I always come back to this. This is one faithful that always worked and now that it comes in so many other colors, makes it even better. Of course, I wish it was cheaper but I guess quality costs.
I have this in #7. I used to use concealer under my eyes until I saw how t
It show up yellow in pictures. The Touche Éclat is more natural and subtler. So, while it doesn't necessarily conceal in the traditional sense, it makes me look more awake naturally. You can still see a bit of a shadow, but it's not as obvious.
If you are looking for something more heavy duty, I'd go with a concealer.
I've already ordered my second one :-).
