Review - YSL Touche Eclat + dupe!


I went to Turkey a couple of weeks ago, which meant one thing, flying from an airport i.e duttyyfreeeeee shooppiiinnggg!! I decided to lose my YSL virginity and pick up a lipstick(review coming soon) and the famous touche eclat because duty free = guilt free because make up is cheaper so technically I'm saving money by buying products(that I don't actually need), right!? 

First of all, the packaging is insanely beautiful, like I've never felt so good putting a product on as I did with this; it's just so glamorous and shiny(!) and..gold! The tip applicator is very soft, although I was expecting that with the £20 price tag, and using the button pump to get the actual product out, applies the concealer smoothly and evenly under the eyes.

I feel like I was expecting too much from this product, as if it was suddenly going to transform me into Kim Kardashian or Miranda Kerr so even though actually when I first applied it, I felt slightly 'meh' about it, after a few more tries, I have realised that it does do a great job with its actual downfall being that its just so hyped up! 

I got mine in the shade '2 Luminous Ivory' and with the Bobbi Brown corrector underneath, it provides a good coverage on my nasty dark under eye circles, without looking cakey or creasing - something I've had great difficulty finding with the corrector - whilst highlighting my under eye area to give my face an 'ommph' as well as making me look like I'm a lot more awake than I actually am!

 I do love this concealer/highlighter/corrector alot and I know I will be gutted when it runs out however will I repurchase? Probably not. For the retail price of £25, it's just so much money, especially on my student budget(thats more than 1/4 of my weekly allowance!!) and I think the drugstore are doing such a good job of making some great dupes of it, especially the Collection 2000 one which I have used up and just adore, with it only being 1/10 of the price!

Have you tried this product? What did you think?

Thanks for reading!

  1. I agree that it's so expensive, I must give the collection one a go, if it's a good dupe!
