If there’s one thing that should be in every makeup bag, regardless of age or skin type, then without a doubt it’s YSL’s iconic Touche Eclat. So much more than just a ‘concealer’, the little golden pen can be used to highlight dull areas and reflect the light where we need it most. It can be used under the brow arch to excentuate the curve, around the nose to blend away those imperfections that often appear in skin tone, as well as under the chin to blend foundation into the rest of the body and remove any unsightly ‘tide’ marks. However, its main role is to lift the under eye area and make us look like we’ve had a full eight hours sleep when we only got in from the Christmas party at 3am. This year the Touche Eclat has had a little makeover; the limited edition ‘collector’ design is only available this Christmas and is sure to be a sell out.
Inspired by the crystal bead-covered Haute Couture ‘Edition Soir’
evening gown designed by Mr. Yves Saint Laurent himself in the 1960s,
the already iconic Touche Éclat Collector 2013 is delicately engraved
and embossed with a sparkling shower of light – like an exquisitely
embroidered dress. YSL say: “A pure jewel, this irresistibly alluring goldsmithing
masterpiece celebrates the worship of light and the art of illuminating
every woman’s complexion by Yves Saint Laurent.” It reminds me of twinkling fairy lights on the tree, sparkles on festive dresses and glitter balls on the dancefloor: everything the party season is all about. I adore the Touche Eclat and believe no other copycat product even comes close. Although these are somewhat of an investment at £25.00 each, you can use the product incredibly sparingly and still achieve fabulous results. Why not ask Santa for something golden this December? It even comes in the most extravagant box ever.
Available at YSL counters and online priced £25.00.
