Firstly, I must say a huge thank you Kayleigh, for asking me to guest post on your blog whilst you are away on holiday. I've said it before and I'll say it again, yours is one of my absolutefavourite blogs to read and since the moment I found it, I've been addicted. So, I’ll admit, I did have a little 'fan girl' moment when you asked me if I'd like to appear on Couture Girl :)
Anyhoo, I'll get on with my post now shall I?! I know SO many people have blogged about this product and it's pretty old news, but I've rekindled my love for it this summer, and it's definitely a staple in my make up bag now. I've had a very exhausting few weeks for one reason or another, late meetings at work, early flights, jet lag, early mornings getting up for the gym. You girls know how it is, right? Touche Eclat by YSL has totally saved my life. Or should I say, it's saved my face?!
If I had to pick a May and June 'favourite' this little beauty would be it! It is described as a 'complexion highlighter', and I would say that's pretty accurate. It really illuminates the areas it is applied to.
Now, I've mainly been using this under my eyes, after I’ve applied my foundation. I find it really makes me look fresh and awake, like I've had a really good nights sleep. Sometimes I'll use it as a highlighter too and just pop a little down the centre of my nose or on my cheekbones.
I've been reaching for this when all else has failed and I just need to make that last desperate attempt to make myself look awake. It manages to do this job every time, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone feeling run down, ill or if you just need a little brightening up. It helps give my face that glowy look.
I love the applicator; it has a little brush on it so no need to use your own brush. To load the product on the brush you simply click the end, (kind of like a biro pen). The formula is so light and creamy, it sinks into skin quickly. As far as longevity goes, I've always been really impressed with this. And, as with all YSL products, I can't fault the packaging at all. It's beautiful, gold, sleek and classic. It makes you feel a little bit fancy whipping this out of your handbag. What’s not to love?
I love the Touche Eclat so much I'm thinking of getting my mitts on the Touche Eclat foundation too, I've heard good things about it.
Have you ever used Touche Eclat before? What are your little life saving products?
Thanks for reading girls :)
