YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT - NEW SHADES

YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT - NEW SHADES


In Brussels airport earlier this Summer I stumbled across the new and old shades of the iconic Touche Éclat Highlighting Radiance Pen from YSL. Finally a colour for all of us!

When Touche Éclat was created in 1992 by Terry de Gunzburg, the light-reflecting concealer became an overnight sensation. With one item sold every 10 seconds it is number one in sales at YSL, and was for nearly 20 years only available in a couple of colours. 2011 has changed things around and made the concealer, corrector and highlighter-in-one accessible to every skin tone, including dark and Asian.

 

THE COLOURS (listed from left to right):

YSL TOUCHE ECLAT COLOURS

#1 Luminous Radiance

#1,5 Luminous Silk 

#2 Luminous Ivory

#3 Light Peach

#4 Luminous Toffee 

#5 Luminous Honey 

#6 Luminous Amber 

#8 Radiant Silk (apparently only available in the US... and Brussels Airport!) 

Colour #7, Luminous Mocha, is specially designed for the UK market. It is quite dark, slightly reminiscent of #4 Luminous Toffee, and was not to find in Brussels Airport.

 

HOW TO USE:

YSL TOUCHE ECLAT

YSL calls Touche Éclat '8 Hours of sleep in the click of a pen' because it can banish shadows and signs of fatigue. Use darker colours to shade and shape your face, and the lighter ones to highlight. A light touch on the lips in a matching colour to your skin makes the pout perfectly nude. But be careful you don't apply too much - if you are suffering from strong discolouration, use a more pigmented concealer to cover up, then press on a touch of Touche Éclat on top to get the radiant glow and less visible puffiness.

Colour #1,5 will launch in Oslo on 24 August. The UK has got 7 of the 8 colours, only missing #8.
