YSL Touche Éclat has been around in the beauty industry forever, well known as the iconic highlighting pen. A beauty bag must-have, Touche Éclat conceals dark circles whilst adding a subtile radiance to your skin. This unique collector’s edition was inspired by the famous leopard print motif, cherished by the house of Saint Laurent. This adds a dash of “wild” to the original golden surface.
YSL’s Touche Éclat highlighting pen can be used just about anywhere, under the eyes to conceal dark circles and add radiance, around the nose and inner corner of the eyes to brighten up the eye area. It can also be used to highlight the brow bone and cupid’s bow for a fuller pout. Down the bridge of the nose and cheek bones to contour.
It has a really easy to blend formula, which adds a subtile, seamless finish. I have the classic shade number 1, this adds a subtile radiance with peachy undertones. To help create a seamless finish I lightly pat in the light enhancing formula with my finger. I apply Touche Éclat after my base, which at the moment I am testing out YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat foundation, £30.50, which has the same light enhancing formula, so far I am really impressed with the foundation and it works really well with Touche Éclat for added radiance.
I brought my Touche Éclat from Selfridges in London and the YSL beauty advisor who served me called Mark was so lovely, I couldn’t do this post without giving him a quick mention. He advised me on how to use Touche Éclat properly, he also gave me a YSL makeover, with Le Teint Touche Éclat foundation, Touche Éclat highlighting pen, Baby Doll mascara and their new Baby Doll kiss and blush. It was perfect for my meal at Bluebird in Chelsea that night.
Are you a fan of the original Touche Éclat? Will you be going out to get the Wild edition?
