A couple of weeks ago, on the truly fabulous TV show ‘How to Look Good Naked’ (we love you Gok!), the army of naked testers did tested under eye concealers and highlighters. Each week they do these trials and pick which product is best. On this under-eye installment, one such highlighter was YSL Touche Eclat (£22.50).
“Touche Eclat will win” I proudly announced with a knowing smile, “I would bet a million quid that it’ll destroy the other options”.
For anyone who has tried Touche Eclat you will, most likely, understand my smugness. The golden tube is a mircale in pen-form. It highlights the bits you want to pronounce, such as brow bones and the cupid’s bow, and masks the bits you’d rather hide, such us dark circles.
To really do the job on dark circles don’t apply the pinkish yellow cream in the hollows themselves. Instead, pat the highlighter just under them, almost onto the cheek. This means that light will bounce off this area and do wonders for dark or bluish sockets!
Of course, I was right (gloat), YSL was top of the charts. So if you’re wondering whether you should treat yourself, the answer is yes. It’s the only beauty product I repeatedly buy without hesitation. Once you’ve got it in your make-up bag you’ll be wondering how you ever lived without it.
