OMG! YSL Touche Eclat now in 7 shades!
Major news on the beauty circuit: YSL’s Touche Eclat is now available in seven shades. Having only been available in shades 1, 2 and 3 until now, the additional four shades will be available exclusively at Selfridges from May 19th. You can read more about this wondrous development on Musings of a Makeup Artist and British Beauty Blogger but suffice to say, this is pretty exciting news.
Coincidentally, I’m down to my last click of Touche Eclat (shade no 3) – my only criticism of this product is you never know it’s going to run out – but I can’t eke out what’s on the brush for another 4 weeks. Good job then that Ellis Faas has been in touch this week to offer a trial of their concealer. Like Touche Eclat, it comes in a brush/pen applicator and is available in eight shades. Mine should be here any day so I’ll report back on my findings…
What do you think of Touche Eclat? Do you find the existing three shades limiting or have you found an equally good product from another (cheaper?) brand?

Do you use it as an undereye concealer? I know a lot of people do but when I went to the Selfridges counter the assistant told me it was a highlighter and refused to show me its effects under the eyes??

Good question Mandy. I use mine under eyes but would love to know how to use as a highlighter (never understand where to put a highlighter). Have put your question to Kenneth Soh over on Musings of a Makeup Artist. Do check out his blog if you don’t already know it. He answers all his comments!

This is a lifesaver, I know loads of people that use it. It is definitely one to have on standby in your make up bag!!

I have yet to try Touche Eclat, but I love Ellis Faas concealer. It’s fabulous stuff.

I remember having tried this, I was at a YSL counter looking for some nail polish and ended up being convinced to give it ago-the people behind the counters are pretty persistent! I liked the finishing result but I found that it kind of dried out the area under my skin :/

Hi Lola, I think Kenneth mentions that they have reformulated it as well so might be less drying now…

A while ago, I switched to Light Expert By Terry– apparently the lady who invented Touche Eclat while working for YSL.
Apart from the fact that Sephora seems to have discontinued it, there is nothing bad I can say about this product. In fact it’s bloody wonderful. Since I started using it, I have literally lost count of the amount of times that people have told me how well I’m looking. This has never happened to me before!
