Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Touch
Advantages: Excellent product and does what it says
After buying many products similar to this I have finally found one that works! I have quite dark circles around my eyes and pigmentation around my upper lip area. When the Yves Saint Laurent representative tried this product on me in the shops, it simply transformed my face. I was not expecting such excellent results, the dark circles under my eyes were not visible and my pigmentation was as if it didn't exist! This can be used as a highlighter or a concealer on any part of your face. This product first only came in a few shades but now it available in many many shades to suit all skin tones! I often find that when buying a concealer there is a need to wear foundation on top, but this product blends into your skin so well that there is no need to wear foundation to cover anything up. After buying different concealers, from all brands such as Rimmel, Maxfactor, MAC, Dior, Bobbi Brown, I honestly feel that this one is the best I have ever used! It has a very light texture and does not look obvious or heavy on your skin at all, it looks more natural! The only thing I found was that the Yves Saint Laurent representative put on this product a lot better than I did. It has a brush at the end of it but the Yves Saint Laurent representative applied the highlighter and concealer with her finger tips. I personally find it easier to spread the product around my eye area (covering my eye lid as well) with the brush then try to blend it into my skin using my fingertips. It is a bit pricey if you don't usually spend a lot on make up but I would really recommend buying this! It also lasts a long time and looks very stylish in your make up bag! You don't have to worry about it leaking or breaking and smashing in your make up bag as to activate the product you need to click the bottom, like a pen. You really will not be disappointed with this product as I have now been converted. When you go to the Yves Saint Laurent representative they may try to sell you an moisturising cream before hand (they did this with me) and it was said that this cream will make your skin tone look more lighter and radiant. However, I personally found that the moisturiser acted like any other moisturiser I have used that naturally makes your skin look radiant and lighter. Therefore, I would recommend that you use a good moisturiser before using this product and allow your skin about half an hour to soak up the moisturiser before applying any other products on it. Another tip I found useful is to apply a good primer to the areas where you will be using this product as then I found the concealer and highlighter stays on your face for longer giving you better results!!
Summary: an excellent concealer and highlighter all in one
