Review : YSL Touche Eclat

Review : YSL Touche Eclat

I was super excited to receive the YSL Touche Eclat as everything about it screams luxury.

Despite common misconceptions this is a highlighter and not a concealer. You would use this to highlight and brighten areas rather than to conceal them. If you apply this directly to problem areas it can draw attention to them.

The pen has a little click-y button at the bottom which pushes the product up to the brush.

I received Shade no.1 which has pink undertones, this is perfect for my porcelain skin.

Touche Eclat can be used for in the following ways :

  • Underneath dark areas that you wish to minimise
  • The inner & outer corners of eyes to brighten and widen
  • Around the lips so that they appear larger
  • Underneath creases
  • On the brow & cheek bones to add structure
  • On top of concealer for a more natural finish

This versatile product has become a firm favourite of mine as it really does work in many ways. I love to use Touche Eclat when I’m on a night out and know that there will be plenty of photos, it also comes in very handy to hide the appearance of a hangover!

YSL Touche Eclat is available in four different shades and is priced at £17.95 for 2.5ml of product. It is available to buy from Cheap Smells, postage to the UK is free and the product will normally be dispatched within one working day.

Have you tried YSL Touche Eclat? What is your ‘go to’ highlighter?

    I've been dying to try this out, but too scared in case it isn't as good as I hoped it would be. I'm extremely tempted to give it a go. x

    I was unsure if this was worth the hype but I think I may have to try it soon 🙂 A lady at the counter put one on my that was WAY to light and looked awful.

    This is on my beauty wish list, something I am itching to both own & try as I have heard lots of good things about it & love how luxurious it is.

    Happy Hump Day. x

    I've alway been intriduged by this and like you said everything about it screams luxury. I did actually think it was a concealer. Dunno if I could justify the price though. Great review xx

    It is a lot of money to spend on something that you may not like, I personally love mine x

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll have to try that one out x

  19. January 12, 2012 / 8:03 pm

    It is very expensive, to be honest I probably wouldn't have bought it unless it was highly recommended to me because of the price tag. Now I've tried it I'm so glad I was lucky enough to be sent it x

    It is a great price, a lot cheaper than most places! Cheap Smells are great for selling things like this a lot cheaper than RRP x
