Touche Éclat by Yves Saint Laurent.


Okay I know am so late on this bandwagon but I have jumped on it with full force and seen the errors of my ways! Why did no one tell me I was missing out? When I was carrying out my rather extensive spring haul I picked up Touche Éclat in 2 colours, Luminous Radiance and Luminous Silk. Admittedly a bit extravagant but because I’d never had one I was unsure of the colours and couldn’t decide!

I was delighted when I opened up my parcel and saw the gorgeous gold packaging I have seen everywhere! I couldn’t wait to try them out so I quickly popped them on. Luminous Radiance is a pink-toned colour, whilst Luminous Silk is a much more neutral shade.
I must admit on first glance of Luminous Radiance my heart dropped, as I never use rosy tones under my eyes. But I put the doubt behind me and popped it on. Although it did brighten up the area it was a tad too pink for my personal preference.  I do however absolutely love this product on top of the cheekbones! The pink tones are gorgeous here as they give a rosy sheen and highlight all at once. Perfect for those days when you just fancy a subtle glow.

I was relieved to find that Luminous Silk is a perfect match for my skin, a cool ivory shade that blends beautifully. This shade definitely brightens me up more than Luminous Radiance so I tend to use this under the eyes, down the bridge of the nose and on the corners of my mouth to take away any shred of tiredness that may be lurking. It’s also fab at making your eyes appear bigger by applying some in the inner corners. This shade is gorgeous on top of the cheekbones as it’s an amazing highlighter without looking too shiny. My only criticism is that I wouldn’t use this as a stand-alone concealer. It’s quite sheer so I find myself popping some of my usual concealer on my under-eye/nose area before applying the Touche Éclat.

All in all, this product is amazing and I have no idea why it took me so long to get it! I’m really happy I got 2 colours if I’m honest as I use them for different areas of the face. I already know I will be repurchasing these shades when they run out. What shade do you use? Or are you (like I was) a Touche Éclat virgin? xo
