Touche Éclat


Since I was little I have always had really dark circles under my eyes. I always thought I was doomed, maybe I just have unfortunately inherited them from my mum. (thanks mum) 
Its not something that is just going to disappear so over the years I have been desperately trying to find the perfect cover up. I'll be honest I have found some products that have been utterly amazing, perhaps I will do a post on that aswell. For now though I have found a product I have already fallen in love with and I have only been using it for a couple of weeks. 


This is the Touche Éclat by Yves Saint Laurent, I will be the first too admit that its not the cheapest of products at £25 but let me tell you it is literally amazing. I moan to people so often about the dark circles under my eyes and alot of people have come back to suggest this product by YSL so I thought maybe I should give it a go. OHH I'm in love!!



As you can see from the photo above it is a relatively thick texture but it blends so well, that it definitely doesn't look heavy around the eye area at all. It also acts as a highlighter so it gives a little bit of a glow, and all in all makes you look really radiant. (Please ignore the fact my hand looks super red, i'd just come in from the cold weather)


I picked up Touche Éclat in number 2, I was opting between 1 and 2. Number 1 is much more of a peachy colour and I was informed by the lady on the counter that it is much more highlighting than the other numbers, so she suggested being able to use it on your cheek bones, nose line, and cupids bow. However ideally for me, I didn't really want the product for this, I just wanted it to give a very good coverage, without looking like im wearing half a pot of concealer under my eyes. 
I'm so happy with the outcome, it definitely exceeds what I expected it to do, especially after trying out SO many different concealers. I know its a little pricy for a concealer, but I honestly do not regret paying the price for it at all. 

Have you used Touche Éclat, if so how did you find it?

  14. I'm so curious about this! I've also got really dark circles and I hate them, not even my MAC studio fix covers them properly :( Will definitely give this a go (after I save up a bit!)
