I always hate to be a downer, but I have to tell you I waisted my money on the hype on this one. $35 and nothing too write home about. It tended to crease on me, and I don't have oily skin, so I wondered why... Anyway, I kept on trying to play with it, unlock the secret ect... but never did. Now it's all alone in the corner of my makeup bag, probably crying because nobody ever loved it... boo hoo...FOR ME. waisted money...

I love this product! I wanted to try it before, but it's too expensive to just "try" imo, then I won it in a contest from a Dutch magazine. Just when I tought I wouldn't get it anymore from the magazine, I did get it and I had already bought the lightening touch from TBS. The woman from TBS said: this is just as good as YSL! NOT!!!! My undereye circles are gone when I use this and it looks really natural, just like I don't have circles under my eyes! Even my bf commented on how pretty it looks and that I looked really "pulled together". I will buy this product again when I use it up. I agree that it's very expensive, but it's worth it imo.

It is really nice and great packaging. Very easy to use. It works, brightens your dark circles and non drying. However, it has mineral oil and seriously for the price you pay, I expect a better quality products rather than paying for the name. I do not wish to make my under eyes worse by using this product.

Love love this! The best concealer for me.
Im on my 2nd.My shade is #2.I will never be without this product.
Its the only concealer that stays put & didnt accentuate my fine lines.My eyes are brighter & never dull.
Other concealers i tried L'occitane magic eye balm,Cinema secrets,Dior lifting concealer,Mac Select,L'oreal touche magique,Body shop stick concealer.
YSL touche eclat is the best!

I apply it after my foundation and the difference is very noticable. My face just looks more even, instead of looking like I haven't slept in a month.
It's no miracle formula, it won't hide your dark circles completely (as it's not really a concealer) but I think that's a good thing, it looks very natural.

Hands down this is one of the best remedies to under eye woes. I constantly have dark circles and puffiness (especially after a night out) and this product truly helps camouflage them.

I have and will buy again.

I have been using this product on and off since it's introduction many years ago. Unfortunately, many people think it's a concealer. Well, it's not. It's a highlighter that is designed to brighten up the areas of the face that thend to be dark or have shadows. This product is best used OVER your makeup to add extra light to specific areas and to refresh those areas later in the day when you start to look a bit tired. This product has no coverage, it works by light reflectors which will give the appearance of slight coverage. If you want to really cover darkness or spots, use a traditional concealer. The one thing that bothers me about this product is that every so often I find that the brush starts to smell really bad soon after I use it a few times. I have washed the brush out, but I'm afraid water will get into the pen and ruin the formula. I don't know why this happens, but it's something that's only been happening recently. It never happened years ago, so I wonder if there has been a slight change in the formula.

I bought this on my sister in law's recommendation when I was on holiday - not sure if I could justify the price when it wasn't duty free though!
I don't actually find it that good for under eyes, I prefer MAC select cover up. But I do actually find this great for evening out pimple scars and highlighting around my nose and chin to even out my skin tone. I don't like to wear full foundation and this does enough for me.

[Rated 5 under both price & packaging and would buy this product again].


I decided to go for this going by all of the positive reviews on here; for something that cost 22 I didn't want to make a mistake. Most people have referred to this as more of a highlighter than a concealer, (for the record - I'm still not even sure if Yves Saint Laurent inteded on this being either; perhaps both? It works amazingly as a concealer for me, but it was no highlighter. I followed the "instructions" on the little leaflet inside, and used it on my cupid bow as a highlighter, and - although it didn't look bad at all - it was no match for any proper highlighter. My skin looks more perfect after using this, but not highlighted.

It conceals even the ghastly dark circles under my eyes perfectly, but (as I expected really), I have to apply it a few times during the day to keep it up, but that doesn't really bother me. Now I always use this over my foundation and for "touch ups". My foundation is L'Oreals Infallibe (in porcelain).

It is very expensive, but I can see myself re-purchasing.


[EDIT 06 Aug 07]: Akk... within around a fortnight, it was all used up. I shouldn't be surprised - you only get a miniscule amount of product in these tubes anyhow. In the end, I used this simply as a brush to use with my foundation, which did give almost identical results to this concealer / highlighter / whatever-it-is. This was too thick to use as a highlighter, but it did work well as a concealer, yet - with it's ridiculous price-tag, finicky pen which can get stuck, and the tiny amount you get for what you pay - it's just not worth it when a drug-store foundation (shockingly at HALF the price of this) can do just as well, and you get 50 times more product. I'd have to be either have money to burn, or be pretty stupid to repurchase this again; but I will still give it 2 lippies because it isn't the worst of the worst despite how crazy it is - because what IS there does conceal pretty well, but the price is crazy for how little there is. I will stick very happily with my L'Oreal. :)

My sister gave this to me because she didn't think it was doing anything for her. Well of course i wasn't gonna argue. These are very expensive at 18 a pop and I prefer it to my clinique airbrush concealer which can get a bit cakey, I think i'll try elizabeth arden after i've finished this stuff and keep the airbrush as a backup or in my bag.

It's very good and is NOT a concealer which some of the smarter people have worked out already. This goes on after my concealer as a finishing touch, it is meant to deflect from the appearance of dark shadows and dark lines.... It works quite well and I am really happy to use this as a staple. It doesn't work miracles, it won't airbrush you like models in magazines but it works well enough for what it is. One lippy off for price because 18 is the same price as a decent foudation and this is really an optional extra that "perfects".... not something that can do a fat lot on its own.

It's a good product, worth trying but not compulsary.
