Hello! Finally I am able to write my review on YSL Touche Éclat! This product was bought together last few weeks together with YSL Le Vernis in #6 Rouge Dada and YSL Rouge Volupte in #1 Nude Beige. You can take a look at my haul here.
I’m sure most of you are familiar with YSL Touche Éclat. Many people has been talking about this product. Most people that I know are raving about this so when YSL beauty opened their boutique in ION Orchard, I immediately decided to get this one.
I am lucky that I’m still able to get this limited edition Touche Éclat packaging. It looks much better in my opinion. It less prone to finger prints compared to the usual Touche Éclat packaging. The idea of pressing pen (I dunno whether this phrase is correct :p LOL) in the packaging is clever. I just love the moment when I press the button and apply the concealer to my under eye circle.
What I like about this corrector is the texture. It’s so soft that it blends very well with my sun screen. I blend this using my Sephora concealer brush.
I bought this primarily to use it as a highlighter. Initially I hoped it could also be used as a concealer. I picked number 1 because the SA advised me to get the lightest color (I am a MAC NC15-20) if I want to use this as a highlighter. After few times using Touche Éclat, I found out that this is not suitable to be used as a concealer. It’s way to light and the texture is not covering enough. Thankfully touche éclat works well as a highlighter. Surely after applying this and my loose powder, I can see some radiant on the part of my face which I applied this on. Other than using this as a highlighter, I also use this as my corrector. Sometimes when my eyeliner starts to smudge, I would add this to touch up. I must admit that I think YSL Touche Éclat works best as a corrector for me.
As you can see in the picture below, the color looks lighter than my skintone. Thus I think it works much better as a highlighter or a corrector rather than a concealer.
Packaging wise, I think YSL Touche Éclat (limited edition) looks very nice and classy. Although I am a bit disappointed that this doesn’t work well as a concealer, I am still glad that this works very well as a highlighter and corrector.
Have you tried YSL Touche Éclat before? Do you think touche éclat works better as a highlighter or a concealer? Tell me what you think
