Once women hit a certain age - I'm thinking 40s and on - the choices are either drastic and plastic or nourishing and gentle. I opt for the latter. If you'd like to as well, find your personal most wonderful skincare products, apply the less is more art of make-up, light up your face with a huge smile and - dah dah - Radiant Touch! I have yellow undertones and use No 2. I use it mainly in the crease at the sides of my nose, on the nose/mouth crease line and in the dip between lower lip and chin. If I need a real ego boost I will sometimes use it under the browbone and around the sides of my eyes, to make me look particularly fresh and well rested. It's very fluid, blends wonderfully and is detectable only in that it makes you look more radiant ... as the name promises.Update: I finally know what everyone means about the nasty smell. I've bought three of these. Two were fine but my latest developed the manky smell, which apparently is caused by oils in the skin. I cleaned the brush with alcohol and there's been no repetition of the problem. Not a nice experience but easily overcome and it won't stop me from repurchasing. continued >>

I love this product, but feel it's my money-conscious duty to take away one lippy for the exhorbinant cost. That said - i plunked down my $35 and would probably do it again because there just isn't anything else on the market like this stuff.

I use BB concealer pot in sand and follow with Chanel Teint Fluide Universel foundation in nude and use the eclat last as a highlighter over the dark cicles that can still sometimes show through the first two steps. Something about the pinkyness to it (i use #1) that really makes my eyes "pop" and look more awake and alert.

YSL has produced a winner in my book.

Ok, this may be long! I had read about this, but as one who doesn't have lots of dark circle or bags under my eyes, but do have fine lines, I've basically decided concealers bring more attention than they "conceal," at least on me and especially around my eyes. Whle my skin is far from perfect, I go for very natural, light makeup (usually LM tinted moisturizer and small amount of bronzer/blush),so I do live with my imperfections! However my sister has major dark circles and I am always on the lookout for a good product for her. Well, I was having an "eye" makeover at Bobbi Browns at Saks and lucked upon a terrific MUA, who, after absolutely opening up my eyes with a thorough eyebrow shaping (NO ONE has ever offered to do that for me--what a difference), I'd probabably have bought just anything from her! LOL

But, she took a look at my fair-light medium skin, golden blonde hair, green eyes and 40 yo fine lines and told me there was a product meant just for fair European origin gals like myself. She tried Touche eclat in the lightest #1 as a concealer and in the inner corner of my eyes-- just to cover the slight bluish tones that come with the thinner skin we fair gals have and around the corner of my nose. WOW, what a difference. I didn't look tired anymore. Just bright and attentive. It even covered the small broken capillaries I have near one nostril better than any of the green tints, or the two step concealers I'd painstakinging trying to apply from LM.

Now, I think she applied it a bit heavier than I would and that could explain why some reviewers note caking later on. When I've applied it with a light touch just after a good eye cream, I don't get that at all. I'm truly amazed and glad that she pointed this product out. While I will buy quality products (from Laura Mercier, BB, TM)mostly, I haven't ventured into the pricey French brands much more than Guerlain meteorites and YSL was just not one I would have gone to on my own...

If you have major major dark circles to cover, I would guess you would need a concealer first, but this product over it might be just the ticket! I'm really amazed at the difference it has made. Whle I like to put on makeup quickly, I'lll definitely take time for this step and thanks to MUAers like dlove for letting me know that this product is really better than the vaunted cle de Peau. I had been on a major search for that concealer primarily on behalf of my sister, which is not available in Denver.

One last thing. I don't know about the mold issue/odor and may not have a problem in semi-arid Colorado. However, I have taken to cleaning the brush tip every few days with TM brush spray brush cleaner, which quickly dries after a spritz and tissue blot. This might be a good idea to consider.

I have the classic Catch 22 of eye problems. I have undereye circles from heck. Not just under my eyes but in the inner eye area. I always feel like I look like I've been punched. On top of this, I am about to turn 30 so the first little lines are showing up and every concealor thus far either a.covers circles decently but cakes and dries in the lines or b. doesnt cake but doesn't do anything to cover the circles.
What's a girl to d? So finally i gave this highlighter a try and I must say I am very pleased with it. It does cover up the circle-but not completely-maybe they are just too dark. And as a bonus-no caking!

I bought this product at duty free in Korea, so I didn't pay the full price. Purchased it because of the hype in the pink tint and tint #2. Its light and covers. I don't get milia which was a problem with paula dorf concealer. Its a convenient package too. I would pay the price for the item again especially in the pink tint. Just because I am sick of MILIA!

The only product that I would actually take into the desert. Sinks right into the skin and you barely have to blend. Provides me every day with what is most likely a false sense of security about my chronic eye bags, but I feel better.

I just love this product, I can't live without it, perfect for covering undereye darkness. I also use it around my nose to hide all those imperfections. Pricey but the gold pen looks fab in any makeup collection.

Giving this a middling rating because although I used this for a year and was delighted with it I've since developed a nasty allergic reaction to it. So just be warned if you do have sensitive skin that you might react...

good product but personally have got a better concealer from Tesco!
a good buy for the inner corners of the eyes and for any shadow around nose. it illuminates spots though!

I have the #3 shade (theres no #2 btw!!), and it suits my MMM/DDD Olive complexion great!! I combine with BB Creamy Concealer Kit and my under eye circles disappear 90%!! If you have darker/yellow toned skin, go for the #3 shade. Only gripe is that in UK, #3 is only available in London!! xxx
