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.

It contains good-for-you ingredients that boost skin’s natural luminosity:

- 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 The perfect shade I have tried different brands of concealers in the past, not really satisfied with the color. But when I came across this brand and shade, I no longer had look any further.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my favorite products!! I have used this product for a long time. We don’t have a store that sells it in my town and I stopped ordering for awhile. When I got my new Touché Eclat and used it....I thought immediately that I wouldn’t be without it again. It highlights and brightens like nothing I’ve ever used. The lines are softened, undereyes brightened, etc. I also love the application delivery!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A go-to in my beauty bag I have used Touche Eclat #1 for many, many years and it is my go-to daily product. It sets the lid as an eye primer, brightens the under-eye area, & works as a highlighter on bridge of nose. Over the years, I have included other shades of the Touche Eclat for multi-purpose use. Never disappointed in this little beauty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always the best! I used to use this and stopped for awhile. Went right back as it is the best cover up I have EVER used! It goes on so smoothly and covers my under eye circles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Highlighting & Brightening Pen I’ve Ever Used I have been using Touche Eclat highlighting pen since 2007 and it is my one go-to product for brightening tired eyes and highlighting my face. It’s not cakey, doesn’t settle into wrinkles or pores, and even looks great ten hours after application! I am 42 and have dry skin, and occasionally try other highlighters/concealers...but ALWAYS come back to this one!!!

Questions & Answers

I want to try the Touché Eclat Highlighter.  I use #2 Nude Beige, in the Anti-cernes multi-action concealer and it's the perfect shade for me.  What color should I get in the Highlighter?

Asked by: MJ55
I use medium with yellow undertones face makeup, its usually the lighter medium shades. When I started using Touche Eclat highlighter, I was told to use #2 luminous ivory. I thought it might be to light but it is perfect. Blends well and looks good. So I would recommend it. I use just alittle under my eyes and around the fine lights around my mouth.

My skin has a cool/pink undertone. In the winter I use the no.1, and it works great. But in the summer when I get tanned no.1 is too light. Which shade for a medium/tanned complexion with cool/pink undertones?

Asked by: Massalina
I use it as an enhancer under my eyes and around my lips. I use #2 all year around as I too ave a medium tan skin and in addition to the Summer months I spend the months of March and 1/2 mo. in October and 1/2 mo in Nov. each year on the beaches of FL. Thereford in Dec. Jan. & Feb. months I use a face self tanning cream so my skin tone stays pretty much the same all year arouund. Not sure this is much help but I am pleaed using #2 all year around.

I have shade No3. Of this product and I have an uneven skin tone and pimple marks. So please guide me to right  step to use this awsome product . After applying mouistriser or after foundation ??

Asked by: Neha
I use it after my moisturizer and before I put on my foundation. Once I have used a bronzer and blush I may touch up a blemish with Touche Éclat if it is still visible.

what was the touche eclat radiant touch original color, when you only offered one shade?

Asked by: debbie
I think it was very pale, like off white. That's why I choose it in the beginning.

I am blonde, blue eyed and have a pink/rose tint in my cheeks. I can be fair in the winter and tan in the summer but that "rosy" look is always there. What shade is best for me? And would I need different ones for when I'm tan and when I'm not?
Asked by: CynthiaM
I am dark haired but fair with a rosy tint as well and fine #2 to be perfect when you are not tanned. I feel you would need to go a tint darker if you tan deeply or else it will be too apparent you are wearing concealer. Just my opinion hope it helps.

Hi, for which skin tone is dedicate Touche Eclat radiant touch No. 2? I don´t see N.2 in "Find your perfect shade". I guess I´m light neutral skin tone. And on my cheeks I can find some pink undertone. I want to wear it without makeup, too ( in summer )... so little afraid that No.1 will be too peachy for me. Or maybe No 2.5 ? :))

#2 It is for a lighter base complection or fair with a slight rosy look I think #1 would be more for an ivory complection very light so gauge from there. Ps #2 has always worked well for me and I avoid sun like the plague.

You can use it either way. I usually apply it over makeup so that it remains in place.
