Benefits

The original and iconic face highlighter that instantly gives you 8 hours of beauty sleep in a click.

Type

Highlighter

What it is

Like a magic wand, the Touche Éclat pen instantly brightens, smooths, and perfects your complexion with a natural, luminous finish. Highlight your best features without any of the shimmer or glitter.

What it does

The light-infused pigments in Touche Éclat blend seamlessly for a healthy, natural glow. It’s your skin but better! Never cakey or overdone.
- Brighten the complexion to fight dullness, fatigue, and bring light to the face.
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles and lift your features with no risk of caking or creasing.
- Perfect your makeup, give your lips a natural plump, and erase any traces of mascara flakes, eyeshadow fallout, or smudged lipstick.

Coverage: Sheer to Medium and Buildable
Skin Type: For all Skin Types (Sensitive, Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily)
Finish: Luminous and Natural

It contains good-for-you ingredients that boost skin’s natural luminosity:
- Hyaluronic acid to increase hydration and plump skin
- Vitamin E antioxidant care to fight visible signs of fatigue

Apply on bare skin or over makeup with just one click and blend with fingertips, brush, or sponge.
To brighten, use the pen down the bridge of the nose, the brow bones, above the brow, and on the tops of the cheeks. Pro tip: for a brighter illumination try using a shade lighter.
To smooth, apply to the smile lines, on the forehead, and on the crow’s feet. Pro tip: use a shade close to your skintone.
To perfect and cleanup mistakes, define edges around the mouth and eyes.
To brighten dark circles, start with your full coverage concealer, then use Touche Eclat on the inner corner of the eye and in the shadows underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a highlighter for brown skin... I love the Touch Eclat #6 (Luminous Amber) so much I purchased two. I use this as an all over just to deal with some redness I have in spots...that occurs for no reason and not always in the same place (LOL); or as a way to deal with the discoloration around my eyes- which is darker than the rest of my complexion. I've tried other popular brands but the reason I LOVE this is the way it matches my skin tone once blended. It is very challenging to find products to match black skin tones. I have found only one other (L.A. colors concealer in Dark) but they no longer make it. Usually I have to custom mix to get the right match and even that can be sketchy :) Since I don't have pics- think O. Winfrey, Gabrielle Union, Angela Bassett- skin tones (when not overlit in their photos). I hopt YSL will make a light coverage foundation of the same color- it's so important however to keep the formulation used in the Touche Eclat b/c often times a new product introduction goes awry by loosing what makes the original so amazing. In this case, the creaminess, blendability, buildability, and moderate coverage for a light feeling on the face. Also- my face is terribly sensitive- I can't even use some so-called organic products because they irritate. I've never had any issues with this product- which makes me very merry! I'll probably subscribe....Love TE #6- Thanks YSL!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not suited for my purpose I had skin cancer removed on my nose with the MOH's procedure. A friend highly recommended this product to me, promising it would cover my healed wound. But it didn't. I had to return the product since it didn't do what I had expected. This doesn't mean it's not a good product, it was simply not suited for my need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always with me. Touché Eclat is in my small makeup kit. Always. Brushes on so smoothly, a couple of pats, and it's blended. Magic. Never stop making this product. Eyeliner, mascara, Touché Eclat, lip gloss. Done. Thank you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me. I bought Touche Eclat not long after it first came out (17 years ago, maybe?), mainly due to all the hype. Unless it has changed radically since then, unfortunately, this type of liquid concealer does nothing for me. I know some people rave about them, but I can only work with creamy, moisturising, stick concealers, personally. To me, liquid concealers feel drying and look like a water-based paint on the skin and I find them more or less impossible to blend properly. Even if you do manage to spread and blend them fairly evenly, you generally end up with tiny bits of concealer sitting on top of your skin. Perhaps they work on oily skin, I don't know? But on fairly fine textured, sensitive, slightly dry/combination skin, like mine, forget it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pump Issue I have been a Touche Eclat user for years now but managed to order a faulty one. Instead of supplying the brush with concealer when I click the top, nothing happens but when the cap is replaced it decides to fill the lid making it impossible to use effectively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST HAVE - best highlighter I've used Best highlight product I've ever tried!!! and lasts me months and months. I use it on my brow arch,middle of forehead,under eye,cheek bone,lips and sometimes on my collar bone. I stoke/dab the product on then pat in product until blended NEVER wipe product as would remove product not cover your skin. This is NOT a product I use to cover spots as would illuminate them even more but, is one I use for a glow, highlight and cover dark circles. Also I love the packaging and the fact has so many shades in the range. I have fair neutral skin tone, Brown hair and blue eyes so for me I think shade 2 is perfect for me as gives me right amount of lightness to highlight, which I use in day for fresh awake look or night when I contour and highlight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Smooth Finish I am very pale and have some freckles. I don't like wearing a heavy base and use this to help hilight my face some. It also works nicely to dull out some of the darker freckles. I love how smooth a finish it leaves, as if it isn't even there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is the best product I have ever used for my horrible under eye circles. it covers them perfectly and brightens the under eye area. I have tired different type of mac concealers but nothing have worked best for me than touché éclat. I just love it and would recommend it to anyone who is having extremely bad under eye circles.
Date published: 2013-06-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous...however I used touché éclat for years as soon as I discovered it. However, the formulation must have changed about 5 or so years ago because I developed an allergic reaction to it. I tried to use it again recently and again, the skin under my eyes developed a red rash. It is the best concealer I've ever used but I can't use it any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Aren't Kidding! They aren’t kidding when they say it’s like 8 hours of sleep in the click of a pen! I thought I had coined the phrase myself but found I was tardy to the stupendous job this product really does. I’ve been using it for about 2-3 years now… as soon as it came out. It’s truly amazing and does exactly what it says it will do. I’m a man and I use this product to completely banish the dark circles I have had under my eyes ever since I can remember. It erases the dark circles and brightens your whole face as it works under your eyes. I understand there are many uses of this product as a “highlighter” but I can only speak to the terrific job it does under my eyes. You’ll look bright, well rested and ready to tackle the day with what looks like a full and good night’s sleep – even when you only caught a few hours on the plane on the way home from business. The bottom line is… it works, it does what it says it will do and it does it darn good! You won’t be disappointed with Touche Eclat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Concealer & Highlighter I've heard and read lots of positive reviews on magazines and decided to give it a try. Fall in love with it. Use it under eyes to cover up dark circle and on T-zone to create a luminous look. Silky texture makes it really easy to blend! It doesn't dry out your skin like most concealers do. 14 different shades available so you can easily find the perfect one for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect !!! I don't know why it has taken me this long to try this concealer? I am so glad I finally did, because this truly is the holy grail of all concealers. Not only does it give you an instant, luminous "wide awake" appearance when you're trying to conceal dark circles, but this gem does not settle into fine lines/creases. A little goes a VERY long way, so please don't let the cost dissuade you from trying this concealer. It also layers beautifully for a more full coverage effect, yet maintaining a "natural" appearance that we're all trying to achieve. I ordered this product in the color #8; FINALLY a company that TRULY makes a product with yelllow-undertones that does not at all appear too yellow or peachy or orange-y in color. I cannot rave enough about this concealer. It now makes me want to try out other YSL products

Asked by: MalvikaG
The best best way to determine your accurate shade for Touche Eclat, will depend on if you plan to use the Touche Eclat over or under your foundation. If you plan to use it under your foundation I would suggest selecting a shade lighter than your foundation. If you are planning to use the Touche Eclat on top of your foundation then choose a shade that is closest to your foundation. Happy Shopping...

Yes! Absolutely. I have a scar under my left eye, when I broke my eye socket and sliced open the area just below my lower eye lid. The scar is about 2 inches long and I had 15 stitches. I have used Touche Eclat to cover my scar for the past year. When I tell people that I have a scar there, people tell me that they don't see anything. I always tell them that it is as a result of great makeup! I am so grateful to Yves St. Laurent for this product. It really has been a life saver for me. I also use it to cover other small blemishes that appear every now and then. It does not cake on and provides seamless coverage. I hope this answers your question.
