If someone came up to me and asked me “Have you tried the Touche Eclat Maam” ? I would say “That sounds lovely, can you serve it with a cup of hazelnut flavoured coffee” . It honestly sounds like a French pastry to me, or maybe its just my hunger pangs that are driving me crazy. But one look at the sleek gold packaging of the YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch Concealer,  and it almost seems like a shiny gold wand right out of Harry potter. Obviously, we muggle folks cannot just magically make our dark circles disappear, hence we need it more!!

YSL Touche Eclat

My view

I have to admit there is something very addictive about cool , golden metal in your hands early morning! Specially when it comes with concealing properties, its easy to fall into that trap of whipping out your golden magic wand in front of everyone to make them envious!! Anyhow, the YSL Touche Eclat delivers on a lot of fronts as a concealer- it really depends on what you are looking for.

If you are someone with horrible dark circle, im talking the kinds which will put panda’s to shame, then this is probably not the best concealer for you. The YSL Touche Eclat definitely conceals and then some, but for heavy duty nights of studying  talking to significant other on phone till 5 am (do people do that??)  or partying till dawn , this will not erase  all of those deep purple circles the morning the after. If you are a normal human being however, and have light – medium dark circles and are looking for a solid concealer to wipe up all  those traces away then this one is definitely for you!

What makes the YSL touche Eclat stand out really is that besides its concealing properties, it has this amazing ability to make your under eye look brighter – instantly waking you  up. Its like your morning cup of coffee- except this one wont get you fat! It also has the perfect consistency as a concealer- its light and creamy and is a total breeze to apply. Click Click.  Blend Blend. Conceal Conceal! You are done! It lasts the whole day and doesnt budge , ensuring that you dont transform back into the Panda you woke up as ! Its become a staple in my makeup routine ever since i got my hands on it, but i switch to my other concealers when i need more coverage.

Overall Verdict : A

Product: 4/5 , Coverage: 3.5/5, Longevity:5/5, Texture:5/5, Packaging & Value : 3.5/5

Price: Rs 2186/- Approx (It was gifted)

Recommendation: Its one of those magic wands that isntantly brightens your eyes and makes you look all wide awake ! It does not have very heavy coverage, so if you have a major dark circle problem then this is not for those days. Its a question really of whether you think spending this much is worth a light weight concealer that has amazing highlighting properties for your under eye area . I would repurchase it !
