I’m chalking up my spur-of-the-moment decision to get $40 YSL Touche Eclat to temporary insanity.
I know a lot of women swear by the stuff — a versatile liquid face product (available in four shades) designed to work as a concealer, highlighter, eyeshadow base and even a lip primer — but when I tried it for the first time years ago, I wasn’t wowed.
“I’m older and wiser now,” I thought. “Maybe I should give it another try.”
Like Mulder from the X-Files, I REALLY wanted to believe. The product’s so popular that the company says they sell one every 20 seconds worldwide!

YSL Touche Eclat: Reloaded
Two swipes beneath my eyes and a few blending strokes later, and my under-eye area looked no less frightening than it did before Touche touched me.
I bought it primarily to conceal my dark circles, and in that regard I’m sorry to say Touche Eclat just doesn’t work for me at all. I’m so disappointed, in fact, that I can’t bring myself to try the product in other ways. This guy’s going back to Sephora soon… Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: C-
I would have given it an even lower grade, but I haven’t fairly used the product in ways other than as a concealer. What’s been your experience with YSL Touche Eclat? Does it work well for you, and how do you use it (as a concealer, highlighter, eyeshadow base and/or lip primer)? HELP!
