Touche Eclat –  We love it!

This wonder product is extremely light and soft to wear, and adds superb radiance and light to the skin.
Yves Saint Laurent describes it as a micronized powder combined with crystalline and lamellar structured pigments. The crystalline structure makes the pigments react to light the way a prism does. Hence, luminous luscious skin!

Perfect for touch ups during the day, as the microscopic size ensures an even firm film on the skin, and it blends expertly with foundation or powder.

It comes in 3 shades.
1.    Luminous radiance no.# 1 for fair skin
2.    Luminous radiance no.# 2 for medium skin
3.    Light peach no.# 3 for darker or tanned skin
4.    Luminous caramel no.# 4 for ethnic skin
A colour for everyone!
If you have never heard of this product before ladies, please go check it out! As make-up artists we love this product, it hides a multitudeof sins and is worth every cent! Mwah!

YSL -Touché Éclat

So if your make-up drawer caught fire and you had time to remove just one item.....what would you choose ? No question about it for me, my Touché Éclat would be it ! Just cannot live without that little miracle stick. Blends into the skin like magic and makes 'tired eyes' look like they have had a decent nights sleep. It's amazing to use every day but if you do long haul flights this is the only make-up you need (besides the lipstick + eye pencil) to disembark looking like you have just skipped out of the First Class cabin. It really is first class....I advise you to give it a try.

My sister picked this up for me while she was overseas, not even knowing what she was buying! She really didn't understand why I was shouting like a four year old when I opened it up :)
She got it for me in Caramel #4 which is their darkest shade but works really well with my NC 44 skin tone. The packing itself is beautiful. A gold pen like container with a cap. Theres a little "button" at the bottom that you press to allow product to be pushed up into a built in brush. You use this brush to apply the concealer.
The concealer works like a dream. I use it under my eyes and you cannot even tell i hadn't slept the night before (student life hey). I also use it on spots that pop up sporadically and it works beautifully on those too. This concealer has lasted me ages and it is definitely one of my favorites.
Some advice though... clean the brush often. After a while, the pen started smelling finny and I thought the product had gone off. But no, it was the brush that has started to smell funny because of the left over product.
It is really pricey but definitely worth it

I love this product!! I have recently starting using this 'magic stick' and i am in love. its very pricey but its worth it. I use it around the corners of my nose, on the bridge of my nose and under my eyes. it makes my complexion look brighter. I am sure there are more ways to use it but so far this is what works for me.

The products is lightweight, has good 'illuminating/highlighting' properties and covers well, even though its not a concealer. I would re-purchase this anytime. I have also done a review of this on my blog cos I couldn't resist sharing my experience!

This is my all time favourite under-eye concealer! Whenever I am lucky enough to be going through duty free I try snap one up (not always easy as they're often sold out!).

This is the only concealer that I have ever used under my eyes that does not settle into creases and fine lines. Your eyes instantly look brighter and skin looks flawless.

The pen method makes application so easy and a little bit of product goes a really long way.

It's fairly pricey but mine lasts me ages and it's worth every cent! I have been recommending it to all my friends for years.

I bought this during my Dragon Air flight, between Beijing to Hong Kong. It was much cheaper than what I would have paid here (I think R280) and they had the perfect shade suited for Asian skin tones. I was so excited to get my hands on this baby because I heard so many great reviews on this, and I've developed some undereye circles during the previous year.

What I like about this product is the packaging. The gold pen packaging is sooo glamorous! All you do is press the button on top to click the product out. Usually 2-3 clicks is sufficient to get enough product for both the under eye areas. The brush is super soft and distributes the product well. I usually rub the brush on an alcohol swab every 2 weeks (Depending on how often I use this product) just to give it a clean.

I know most girls use this as an undereye concealer, but this product also works well as a highlighter or a base before applying eyeshadows. As a concealer, I think it works great because it brightens the undereye area without making the area look cakey or fine lines more visible. I usually use this product under my foundation for a day time look, and over my foundation at night when I want my under eye area to be even brighter.

I also use this sometimes on my cheek bones to give that very subtle highlight, along the bridge of my nose and a bit on top of the cupid's bow. This is great if you want a subtle highlight that does not contain any glitters/shimmers whatsoever.

This product is quite pricey, even though I got it a bit cheaper so I try to use it on special occasions only. But you only need a small amount of the product everytime you do your makeup. In my opinion, because of the price and how luxurious this product is, I would say it is more of a "lust-have" than a "must-have".

Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat

Gives great coverage for my dark circles under my eyes.

Love the pen method of application. Makes application so much more practical and quicker.

I like to put some on my eyelid before applying eyeshadow, it makes my eye makeup last longer and shine/oil free.
