A touch of light

YSL’s cult product Touche Eclat has been a staple of makeup bags across the land for years. However, the limit of one shade being available in the UK has caused no end of problems for those of us with a slightly paler or darker skin tone than the average. For a while now people have been telling me about these secret shades they’ve found at airports and across the pond in the USA, but until now it’s always been a mysterious legend to me. I don’t believe things until I see it with my own eyes…

I’m happy to let you know that YSL have now launched a whole six shades of Touche Eclat exclusively with Selfridges, so we can all get our perfect match and a little touch of light. In addition to the current shade, they also have 1.5, 2, 3, 5 and 6 which gives the perfect spectrum of hues suitable for all. (I have no idea what happened to 4 – I’m guessing Beyonce stole it for her album name.) It’s fantastic to see a brand like this embracing the need of cosmetics for all, especially as the Touche Eclat is such an iconic product. I could totally wear all of the shades except 5 and 6, depending on the time of year and how dark my bags are! As always, the formula is light and creamy and amazing at lightening dark patches. Get some now!
