Touche Eclat is beautifully packaged and fun to use, but very pricey, the most expensive of them all. It really does give you a glow when you use it, and sometimes you don't need to wear foundation or concealer (although for very dark areas such as under eyes, maybe foundation is needed, as its not strong enough on its own there).
I agree that it starts to mould as well, I have to clean it often. I haven't tried any alternatives, maybe they've developed a cheaper version that's just as effective. But this is a very good product.

this is a great product. i was shown to use it around the eyes (to get rid of the bags) and under the brows for highlights. the ma also told me that it's great for highlighting the mouth so that your pout looks better. this shade totally suits my fair asian skin tone.
i'm not a big makeup person (we're talking only lipstick as an everyday application) but after i saw how this brightened my face i just had to buy it. great for those important dates or occasions where you have to look your best (or at least awake!)

I love this product and use it daily. It erases most of the signs of aging on my face. I use it at the corners of my deepset eyes to highlight, along the sides of my nose (over Laura Mercier concealer) to bring that into the light, and at the corners of my mouth and it completely erases the downward line that is developing there. It's lightweight and looks completely natural. It's easy to blend so I'm not sure if color is that important. I think I have the lightest one, it doesn't say on the tube. It's a fabulous product.

Holy Grail product for me. This doesn't give much coverage, but I've found my undereye circles have improved in the last few years, so I can wear just this alone to brighten and diffuse skin. When I haven't had much sleep and my circles are darker, I use this on top of regular concealer and it works fabulously!
Shade #2 is a great, pale yellow-based shade that is a perfect match for me (FFF). I use it under eyes, on lids, sides and along bridge of nose, and the bow of my lips. Has a diffusing effect and makes skin look flawless!
I must comment on the packaging as well: it's packaged in a sleek, elegant gold pen, with a click applicator.
My only rant: this has a tendency to develop mould, so you have to be very careful to sanatize after every use.
Other than that, everyone should own one! :)
I bought this for 17.50 pounds in London.

This is one of my HG products. I also have #1, but #2 is a better match for my Asian NC40 skin (yellow/orange undertones). I use #1 in the winter when I am less tan and look better in pinky tones. The touche eclat is a brilliant product (I think there are some knockoffs out there now, but I haven't tried any of them). Such beautiful packaging--a gold pen with a clicker on the end. I find that 2 clicks is all I need. I like to brush it underneath my eyes and in the inner corners of my eyes & then I blend with a sponge. If you really want to brighten your face, put some above your brows and blend in as well. You can also put it in your laugh lines and the grooves next to your nose.
I think this is a great highlighter & undereye brightener, tho not the best concealer IMO as the coverage is pretty sheer.

This is my one and only holy grail. I have been through alot of struggle and heartache (swapping issues) to try to get this from Asia --- it's finally freely available in the US!! Hallelujah! It matches my skin tone perfectly (MAC NC25) - covers my circles, and just brightens my face - can't live without this! It retails for $35...and is worth every penny.

This is lovely stuff. I am not a big makeup girl, but I can dab a little of this on the shadowed parts of my face and a little more on the parts I want to highlight even more - cheekbones, etc - and it just brightens up my whole aspect without giving me that shellacked feeling. I look like I just slept 12 hours! Okay my husband can't tell that I've done anything, but I can. It's subtle but there. I am probably going to give the Revlon alternative a try because this is so frigging expensive, but I love it anyway.

I have the #2 in this as well (you can get it at nordstrom.com). The yellow undertone is perfect for my ivory complexion.
The pen is gorgeous, and I do enjoy using the product. However, I break out in little whiteheads if I use this product during the day, so I have to use it only in the morning over my other makeup. I think when this one runs out, I'll try the Revlon skinlights pen, but if that doesn't work out, I'll probably buy this again.

Agree this is the one to get if you have yellowness in your skin. #1 is for fair ladies with pink undertones, and #3 is a lot darker than both #1 and #2 and a lot more orangy. I am FFF-MMM (Stila C or D), and this one works for me, although a tiny bit pale. I mainly use it under my eyes to lighten my dark circles, and am very impressed since only a sheer amount is needed. Unlike concealors that would require a thicker application. I dab this around the eye, and then blend with my finger. Very easy to apply, and looks very smooth. I have had absolutely no irritations either. Highly recommended.
