I use this as concealer mainly because my dark circles aren't actually all that bad but the lines underneath my eyes are. I've tried a couple of other concealers and when I finally gave into fact, I bought this. It's so wonderful. It feels great and has not caked into any of my wrinkles but gives slight coverage, which is really all I need. It's easy to apply, easy to blend and I just come out looking great! I took off a lippie for a couple of reasons, one being the super high price. Does it really need to come out to 40$?! Second is for some reason, I look incredibly strange when I put on any type of cheek color. It's like a completely different color, as if I had a goggles tan. If anybody knows how to fix this let me know! Otherwise a great product, but because of the price I might not repurchase unless all else does not work.
I don't like this correcter, it does nothing! You dab it on ur eyes and it dabs right off on your fingers. It didn't help with my dark circles at all. My friend had a make up artist put some on her and the make artist said to my friend, "See the difference!?". We both laughed as there was no difference to the other eye the make up artist hadn't touched! I thought I would give it a chance and bought some due to the claims it had but I wouldn't buy again, I gave it away to my mom. Grrrrrrr what rubbish! :(
I've been using this for 5 years, & wouldn't be without it. This adds beautiful light to areas & also serves as a slight concealer. I absolutely LOVE how easy this is to blend- it never cakes or interferes with any of my other makeup. It has a luxuriously creamy & light texture that glides on easily. I have combo/oily, sensitive skin, & this has never caused any irritation or breakouts. It never accentuates any "flakies" & is not drying at all. You can reapply it during the day without it caking at all (it NEVER cakes on me- yay!) One tube lasts me for several months, so the price isn't as bad as it seems. 5 Stars all the way for this product! ** Remember people, this is not meant to be a concealer...it is a highlighting product.
This is definitely the Creme De La Creme of skin highlighters! YSL has never ceased to amaze me, and I'm totally loving this stuff. For $75 Aussie dollars..well let's just say my wallet had a heart attack. But sure enough I look radiant, as promised, when I apply it. I'm a huge believer that a good concealer can do wonders for anyone and a few dabs of this under my eyes and around my nose and I'm good to go!
The colours blend beautifically but don't try and get full facial coverage! It just doesn't work! I watched in horror as my best friend tried to smear some over her forehead to cover acne..not a good move!
So elegantly packaged, you'll be getting bribes from other people to let them use it! Seriously. Kiss of approval. A luxury item though..but if you've got the cash, why not?
I really like this as an overall highlighter, but I felt it was not a great as its reputation has made it out to be. Though I would definitely buy it again, the price is a little steep.
This is a great subtle hightlighter. I does not look cakey or makeupy at all. I dab a few dots under my eyes and around my cheekbones and blend it with a foundation brush. It blends seamlessly and effortlessly. I like the more liquidy texture of this product compared to many other concealers. While it is not marketed as a concealer it does work to conceal along with highlighting. The gold pen-like packaging is gorgeous and convenient. I just wish there was some way to tell when the product is about to run out. I gave this four lippies instead of five because of the high price and because I cannot tell when I need to repurchase.
PERFORMANCE: Really covers my dark circles with only a bit of product.
CO$T: expensive like all YSL.
PACKAGE: works fine for me, pretty.
PROBLEMS: drying and I have oily skin and wear eye cream under it.
COLOR: I am light-med olive toned and I use the lightest for undereye circles.
UPDATE: I decided that it made my eyes so dry that they looked terrible. Nothing really does that to me, but this product did. I had to return it, bummer becasue the color coverage was great.
This is crap as a concealer, but then again it's not meant to be. The best way I find is to click a few blobs in with my moisturiser and all over my face. It gives a luminous finish and on a good skin day I don't need much else. I have to say it is the best highlighter - still. It beats the crap out of all the other imposters (guerlain, dior etc)
Can't live without.
Another product that I stock-pile and keep at least 2-3 on hand at any given time. I use a primer first, then lightly tap this under my eyes, on the sides of my mouth (where the smile makes it appear shaded), and on my cheekbones. Then, lightly tap into skin to lightly blend/overall lighten the shadowy appearance. I have very dark under eye circles, so I follow with foundation and then can lightly tap concealer under eyes as necessary. (Some days less than others). I can absolutely see a difference on the days I have skipped.
For lighter makeup days (weekends) I can just do the primer and the touche eclat and see a nice brightening effect without feeling or looking heavy.
Wonderful product. I bave been using since before YSL came out with 3 shades.
I think this is a very over rated product because it does nothing. Will not cover dark circle and it emphasize your fine lines. Way too expensive and doesn't work. Never will I buy this again.
