I have never really bothered with YSL beauty products because they are so expensive. I have really bad under eye circles and wanted something to just give me an edge. It was between the MAC highlighter pen and the touche eclat. With the reviews I read and the shades available I went with the touce eclat.
Packaging- I love the gold packaging of the touche eclat, sometimes gold can look tacky, but with this. The packaging is perfect for the product, although I do have to click it a couple of times to get product out and also I think I may of broken mine some how! In any case, YSL packaging tend to me more attractive me.
Wear/Look- I put my foundation on, then go to work on my eyes with this, sometimes if I feel my eyes are really bad, I use MAC pro longwear concealer. I use a thin small brush and draw a triangle under my eye but not directly under, more or less around my dark circles, then I blend it upwards. This ensures that my eyes circles will stay covered, and it will stay put. Of course the concealer doesn't conceal it all as they are really dark so I then use the touche eclat and do the same thing, and i also apply on the cheek bones and then blend it, this draws light to the area, making your eyes look brighter. I also apply the touche eclat too...
- The inner corners of my eyes
- The outer corner of my eyes
- Sometimes below my eyebrow
- Down the middle of my nose
- On my chin
- On my forehead in the middle (like highlighting and contouring)
- To my smile lines
- Cupid bow (the middle of your lips on the top)
I then make sure that I blend it out. You don't need to click for every where you put it. Just click when you need too.
The Touche Eclat and the MAC pro longwear concealer are my dream team for combating under eye circles. The touche eclat does exactly what it says and I love it, I am so happy that I decided to go with this over the mac highlighter pen. This is one of my HG products as is the YSL Luxurious Mascara. For me YSL has had hit the nail on the head. I may try there foundation!
Price- £25 hella expensive, but who cares. If a product works then I am more than happy to pay that.
Overall- I really want to see how long this lasts, that will be a huge factor in whether I will repurchase or not but I more than likley will repurchase!
