I wanted a concealer for my dark circles under my eyes, and this did not do it for me. The colour made me look too white under my eyes and did not really blend in to my skin in a natural way. It also feels a bit too dry, and after a long day I could see that it had settled in the fine lines under the eyes. I will not repurchase.

I love this concealer! It's the best one I've tried by a clear mile. It covers up my dark circles really well and stays in place all day. For the quality of this concealer it's a pretty good price too. I've tried other concealers but I think I will always stick with this one now. I definitely recommend it.

I'm glad that I follow up the reviews on MUA and bought this high lighter pen.
I've never bought a high lighter pen in my life because I never thought I would ever need it. I had no dark circles or any thing needs to be covered in my early 20s, when I tried on my friend's famous YSL Touche Eclat, it actually created fine lines on my under eye area and looked cakey on me which is not impressive. Nowadays in my late 20s, years of bad living habits (sleeping late, smoking, don't drink enough water, ...) finally makes me pay back. I have very visible dark circles, under eye bags, fine lines.... :((( even after I quit smoking and started living healthy, these signs of aging just won't go (seriously people, start taking care of yourself before it's too late).
Back to the product, it is cheap ($10 CAD in Walmart), so as packaging... which I don't mind at this stage, I may buy the HE one if I become queen of the highlighters one day. The product is great, I got the Rose Porcelain and the shade hides my dark circles very well. You really just need a little bit of product to cover the shadow. It is quite pigmented, a little product can cover a large area, so be careful to use. Too much product can create unnatural and cakey looking. I wouldn't say it's moisturizing, but maybe because of my skin is extremely dry itself. It does contain paraben but so as all those popular HE ones (some of them even contain more dangerous chemicals, so do your research before you spend a lot of money on some thing can potentially harm you). Unfortunately there hasn't been top-rated highlighters that are harsh chemical free, so personally, I will limit my use of the product.
Overall, a great product that does its job well. However I still think we should focus more on taking care of ourselves rather than hiding as many things on our face as possible.
Update: They have changed the packaging for Touche Magique. Now it's in a thicker pen, and the brush is much softer. Also the twist thing works better and the packaging doesn't look cheap like the old one. I was able to exchange mine to the new packaging in a darker shade (rose beige). I also love the rose beige on me better. It's more natural on my skin (rose porcelain was a bit too white for me) and completely covers my dark circles. Just keep it in mind, if you gonna buy this product make sure you pick up the one in the new packaging.

love this concealer. I bought it in the shade ivory beige W1-2. It has a tad yellow undertone to it but covers dark spots beautifuly. I love the application stick. You click the bottom to squeeze the product out. on a brush applicator works like a charm awesome! I have super fair skin and this works great just dont over applicate.. or it'll look yellowy.

Awesome product! I used it to hide my dark circles and it worked wonders. The coverage is good & the consistency is quite thick but super blendable. Definitely will buy this once i found it again

I find that this product covers up pretty much anything! I have very red scars on my face and it covers them amazingly, with a touch of powder on top! However as I do have very pale skin, I find the colour that I use slightly yellow-ish, I definately need a white concealer :( I have used many concealers in the past to try to cover up my scars and any breakouts that I get and nothing has worked as good as this product. A very good point about this concealer is that it lasts all day without needing a touch up. I have been using this product for over a year now and I dont think I could use any other concealer! Would definately recommend!

* Decent coverage
* Blends nicely (I use my fingers)
* Looks natural
* Affordable - although there's not much product in at all
* A little goes long way
* Minimal creasing throughout the day
* Color range is limited
* I'm not too fond of the packaging, takes some practice to figure out how much to twist
Overall I'm quite pleased with Touche Magique and would recommend

This is a really nice illuminating concealer for it's price. Due to genetics and bad sleep habits I have quite dark circles around my eyes. I currently use this product in combination with my MAC correcting concealer - first I blot the MAC all over the under eye circles then I lightly blot this product in certain area over the top to add a little bit of illumination. It definitely works a treat and helps me look so much more refreshed! I have to be careful not to overdo the coverage though, otherwise the creaminess of the concealers end up highlighting my fine lines... which is not ideal! A little bit is all you need.

i love this product! It's super light and pigmented and easy to blend. After a long day it still looks just as if i just put it on! i use it under eyes, on darker areas of my face, (like corners of nose and mouth), highlight and conceal scars on my face. I like how the product comes out of a twisty pen.

This is a very decent highlighter for the price you are paying- it looks natural, doesn't cake, blends well, looks like skin, and really gets you that post sex/VS Angel/Beachy glow.
Apply it down the high points of your nose, on your brow bone, on your cupids bow, on your dark eye circles and DRAG IT DOWN AND OUT till it reaches the sides of your nose so that you almost draw 2 triangles. Then put some on your cheekbone and blend it out to your temples so that it looks like a C.
The difference this product makes is really quite stark, and very comparable to the Touche Eclat although creamier. It also isn't the kind of product that gives you the HELLO LOOK AT ME I AM SPARKLING finish, the finish is very natural with just the right amount of sheen needed.

I've got to say this product saved my life. I was quite flexible with concealers until i started swimming. My oily skin turned dry and flaky, especially the under eyes area. Been using double wear concealer before, but the product couldn't please my skin anymore. Tried lancome concealer, which is not much better than the double wear one. I thought it's hopeless, because both lancome and double wear concealers are very highly rated. Try l'oreal this time not expecting too much. I've prepared to waste my money. But it turn out that this is the one. The concealer doesn't emphasize my fine line, stays for at least 8, 9 hours and most importantly,works perfectly on my badly dehydrated under eyes area. What else can I say? Oh and it's super cheap! Can not believe it!

I initially really liked this concealer. I got the light rose shade, which was a great match to my very fair, pink undertone skin. It has good coverage, and I bought it to use under my eyes. It also worked fairly well on blemishes. After using it for awhile I am a disappointed. First of all, I am not a fan of the brush applicator. I understand it is attempting to dupe another brush product, but I find the brush unsanitary. The worst part is I have found the formula to be extremely drying. I am 21, and have hardly any fine lines under my eyes, but after using this for two weeks I seem to have drier skin under my eyes. I also used it on a pimple on my cheek, and after a couple days the area is extremely dry. I have combo skin, but this left my oily area flaky. I had to go buy a moisturizer just to try and get rid of the scaly patch. So if you tend to have dry skin, I would avoid this product. I would not buy again, as it is not appropriate for my skin type.

this was the first concealer I got,
the coverage was nice, and it hid my under-eye circles
and then about 3 uses later, no product was coming out, I was twisting and twisting for about 30 minutes.
I didnt even use that much in the 3 times I used it...
Im not sure whether or not the twisty thing is broken or what?

I bought it to use as a foundation touch up kind of thing, but it was far too orange. It ended up being really great as an undereye concealer (which is what it's marketed as, anyway). It has just enough coverage, it's not cakey at all - which really surprised me! - and even though i normally hate the click pen-brush type packaging, this one works fairly well (after the initial few uses, one click brings up a decent amount of product, i use one click about every two days), and I'm actually very glad they went with this instead of a pot/wand/tube, because it deposits just the right amount of product, exactly where I want it to go. I apply it right at the line where my dark circle starts, wait a few minutes for it to set, and just blend the edge.
It does a surprisingly great job at brightening. I used to think BB corrector in Peach was amazing, and it does correct my circles, but it leaves my skin looking very sallow. This is amazing. HG status.

Update: I have realized that I actually don't like it that much... It looks so unatural and almost too perfect, like i have edited my face with photoshop. I want my concealers to be more transparent, but being able to brighten things up. This concealer also made my eyes look smaller because it covers my natural shadows. I still think that this product can work wonder to people with pretty dark eye area, it really covers everything.

Great product - like everyone has said. I use this in conjunction with L'oreal's True Match concealer as I like extra coverage.

HOLY GRAIL CONCEALER RIGHT HERE. This concealer is AMAZING. It's meant for undereye circles but I use it as a blemish concealer as well just in a few problem areas. It has very high coverage but isn't as thick as you would expect a concealer with such coverage to be. It hides ALL darkness under my eyes and basically erases my blemishes. The colour is a perfect to my skin tone unlike the Covergirl Tru Conceal (which is a terrible concealer by the way). The packaging has a twisty bottom which pushes the product up onto the brush. I dab that onto my skin and blend with my fingers. It blends like a dream. Also, I can't forget to mention that this product lasts all day. ALL DAY. Ill put it on in the morning and by night after a 12- 16 hour day it all comes off on my cleansing cloth. The only downfall to this product is that it's definitely on the pricey side and it definitely isn't matte. It's not shiny, but pretty sparkly - but that helps to brighten. Just don't use this as a concealer for your whole face. Your nose and forehead and undereye area (obviously) would be okay but unless you want very sparkly cheeks stick to those areas.I got this at my local drugstore for $14.00, however I believe its worth the money. This is the best concealer you'll ever use!

This is my HG! I have used this for 1.5 years and bought this concealer 3-4 times. Definitely highly recommended.
The concealer is easy to use, I just dab the concealer on my acne and blemishes and blend away using my pinky finger. It generally lasts for 6+ months (3 clicks each time, 4 clicks when it's nearing the end). I use this all year round, it is not too heavy or oily to use during the summer months and lasts all day. I have extremely sensitive skin, that is dry and oil in various places (especially in the T-zone area), and I am happy to report that I have never broken out while using this concealer.
This concealer comes in a variety of colours (I believe 6-8 options), and is relatively inexpensive. At Wal-Mart Canada it's around $10+, at SDM it's around $13.99 (when it's not on sale).

I love this to brighten my under eyes! It doesn't crease on my under eyes! I have dry skin and It doesn't leave my skin dry and patchy like the Rimmel Match Perfection did. If you like warm (yellow) undertones this is the perfect under eye concealer. It's one fault is it's kind of thick. Luckily it blends like a dream.

great color match for my skin. LOVE LOVE the packaging. it's so easy to use! no mess at all. just twist the pen and dab it over problem areas.
the only thing I can complain about this is that I find that it has too much of a shine - but apparently some people here use that as a highlighter. not me though, but then I can just put some powder on top :)
can see myself repurchasing this for a long time to come :D
