YSL’s Touche Eclat has a cult like status incomparable to any other highlighter. Adored by makeup artists, celebrated by models, snapped up by beauty addicts and written about by beauty editors, it’s no surprise that they sell millions of units every year. Launched just in time for Spring, this unique collector’s edition adds a dash of ‘wild’ to the original – with a black and gold motif delicately engraved onto the pen’s golden surface. Available for a limited time only, the design is inspired by the famous leopard print motif cherished by the house of Saint Laurent. It’s subtle enough to be elegant, yet edgy enough to warrant an impulse purchase.
I love how YSL are pushing their own boundaries and launching products for their fans and new customers alike. You can use this product in so many ways, but the majority of people use it as a concealer and wonder why it doesn’t work for them. There’s a really handy guide on the YSL website (which outlines how it can be used to refreshen the eyes, sculpt the face and conceal signs of fatigue,) but suffice to say this is not a concealer in the traditional sense.
It can be used sparingly on the under-eye area to highlight dark patches, around the nose and chin to reflect the light away from blemishes, as well as on the brow line to create a more defined brow arch. If used correctly, this will become one of the must-haves in your makeup collection and a product that’s re-purchased for years to come. Especially if you start with a super wild leopard print version of the golden classic.
