Beauty Confidential: YSL Touche Eclat

House of Fraser: YSL Touche Eclat
The YSL Touche Eclat is such a cult product that I've wanted to try for so long, I'm sure I have the YSL Touch Eclat in the shade 2 but I have no idea as the number is so faded on mine. I think a lot of beauty obsessives (such as myself) have tried it at some point although I think there is a little confusion about what it is and how to use it. 

I have the *YSL Touch Eclat Radiant Touch (£25, in shade 1) which is a peachy pink highlighter and complexion brightener; I do think that some may mistake it for a concealer in which case the product will disappoint. Shade 1 is a perfect shade for me as the peachy pink, almost salmon tones help correct and brighten my dark circles which are very dark, thanks mum. 

I use it under my eyes in a inverted triangle shape after my concealer as well as along my brow bone, cupids bow and the top of the cheekbones to add a natural, luminous brightness to the complexion. The highlighter/brightener blends out like a dream, it takes no time at all and it doesn't look heavy, caky or glittery on the skin. The YSL Touche Eclat is the perfect product for the new highlighting and sculpting technique of strobing where light and brightness is added to the complexion instead of adding shadow and contour. 

House of Fraser have a fantastic offer on now until the 22th September (so you will have to be quick!). The Beauty Confidential offer is back so you can get £10 off one of your favourite beauty products, if you buy one of the House of Fraser picks too. There are so many products that are part of this great offer including the new and much coveted Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette, Benefit Roller Lash Mascara (which is a fave of mine) and the Bobbi Brown Skin Serum Foundation which I definitely want to try as well as many more new and tried and trusted products! 

Have you tried the YSL Touch Eclat? Will you be taking advantage of this great offer at House of Fraser?

  1. I have actually never tried this. But it is one of those cult products, but one I've never been that interested in. HOF always have a good deal on! Will have to check it out.

  4. Fab post hun, I actually saw this in TK Maxx yesterday but the shade was too dark :( This sounds amazing and I love that it is a multiuser product that it highlights and brightens :) I know my mom uses this as a concealer but will not listen to me when I tell her it’s not a concealer haha. I will be having a look at this offer though in House of Fraser :)

  5. I've used this before and I don't know whether it was just mine, but I was so disappointed in the product because of its really strong odour of wet dog! Defo something you dont want lingering on your face..

  7. This is a cult product I'm dying to get my hands on as I loved the Maybelline Lumi Touch highlighting concealer, I ran out of it so quickly because I used it so much!

  12. I was eyeing this up today in Debenhams! I'm so unsure as to whether I should purchase it. My Urban Decay Naked weightless concealer does a pretty good job at brightening, and I use pressed highlighters to get my glow on xx

  17. Seeing this post has just reminded me that my Touche Eclat is sitting in the bottom of the drawer somewhere - haven't used it in ages! I do really like it though for highlighting under the eye area :) x
