It’s one of the best selling makeup products in the world and a favourite with millions of women in the UK alone. YSL’s cult classic Touche Eclat is a literally translated as ‘radiant touch’, tasked with adding a touch of light to the skin to lift dull tones. Although it’s commonly misunderstood and used as a concealer, it’s actually a highlighting pen which can be used on the brow bone and cheek area to help sculpt the face. (Have a watch of my video where I explain how you should really be using it.) YSL now have a number of different shades to ensure every complexion can find their perfect match, but for the first time they’re adding a new twist on the product in the form of this beautiful Or Rose variant. Housed in a metallic rose gold pack, the colour is subtly different to the original and contains no peachy undertones; the result is a lot creamier and pinkier, making it great as a delicate highlighter that blends into the skin perfectly.
If you’re a fan of the original then you’re bound to love this variant, although the shade is unfortunately only really suitable for paler caucasian skin tones – it’s very light, even when blended. You can add it specifically to the top of the cheeks, brow bone and to sculpt the cheekbones (handy instructions are included,) but this is definitely not an under-eye product. Although you can get many other highlighting pens at much more affordable price points, there’s no denying that there’s something a little special about Touche Eclat. At £25.00 this is definitely a little indulgence, but as I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a limited edition product it may well be worth stocking up when it drops exclusively into Boots stores this summer. What do you think of this YSL reinvention?
The Rose Or shade of YSL’s Touche Eclat is available exclusivity from Boots priced £25.00.
