YSL Touche Eclat

Saturday, February 22, 2014
This little gem has been the beauty blogger's "holy grail" item for what seems like forever now, so I figured that it's only right for me to give it a whirl and a good review. I picked this up way back in my Birthday Haul and although it's so expensive, I'm left debating whether it's worth the hefty price tag.

For me, it's not worth the money and I don't really understand the hype surrounding this product. I don't particularly enjoy using it and for me, it's nothing special. If somethings in my makeup collection then I'll use it, but it's sure that I'm not 100% over-awed by it. I'm hoping I'll grow to love it, because £25 is not something I'd like to give away for something that I don't enjoy using!

Yes, the packaging is to die for and feels so luxurious but I feel like it doesn't do more than just add a bit of colour. Maybe I've been wrongly colour matched as I cannot see a difference unless I'm having a really bad skin day. I have no faults with the formula of this highlighter pen and I'm a sucker for the little clicky thing (so technical) that pushes the product into the bristles. Overall, not impressed and if you're left feeling a little disheartened by this review, check out the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer. Same thing, different brand and cheaper price tag!



  1. i think it's good to have honest reviews like this, they hype doesn't always work for everyone and it helps make a fair judgement. I hope you find a way to use it to justify the price

  2. Honestly sometimes things get so hyped that I feel like they don't get any bad reviews even when they need 'em - good to hear your perspective

  3. What a shame that it's not working for you, but sometimes it's just like that regardless of how popular a product is. It's the same for me and Maybelline's Baby Lips and Escentric Molescules 01 :o) Xx

  4. I too think this is probably another hyped up product. Because it was the first of its kind, I think originally, when launched, it was a fantastic product but now there are so many cheaper dupes which are just as good.

  5. i think apt of people had trouble with this product and from what i can gather it was either a love or hate product

  6. It's too bad this didn't work out for you. Yesterday I did a post on disappointing products, actually, and there was a little vent on how hyped up products aren't always good! I definitely want to try the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer though. As beautiful as this YSL one is, the L'Oreal one is much more reasonably priced.
