Concealing Under Eye Circles and Bags
With all the holiday parties we’re going to be attending this season, we’re going to have to fake looking like we got hours of sleep. If I don’t get at least 8 hours of sleep a night, it looks like I’ve been up for days. The Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ÉCLAT Radiant Touch is a magic wand that gives your skin an instant pick-me up, as if you’ve slept for hours. With a few stokes of this illumination pen, you’re complexion will immediately look well rested, rejuvenated, radiant and ready to take on the day. It will help bring light to the skin and erase any signs of fatigue instantly.
Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ÉCLAT Radiant Touch is a brush-on highlighter that is ingeniously packaged in a click pen-style component that features a built-in synthetic brush for easy application. Simply click the one end of the pen to get the product to come to the top of the brush tip. The first time around, you’ll have to do several clicks to get the product to the top, but after a few uses, one or two clicks is often enough. It has a creamy and smooth texture that goes on fairly sheer. It doesn’t settle into fine lines, doesn’t crease and doesn’t fade for a solid 12 hours.
When Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ÉCLAT Radiant Touch is applied under the eyes, it will help to eliminate shadows and dark circles, by adding light and creating an instant lift to the under eye area. If used between the eyebrows and along the side of the nose, it will give the illusion of wider, more awake looking eyes. Finally, when used in the hollow of the chin and around the contour of the lips, it will create fuller, kissable, poutier looking lips.
Since I don’t really have dark under eye circles, this Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE ÉCLAT Radiant Touch does an excellent job at disguising my bags, if I haven’t had enough sleep the night before. It also does a wonderful job at brightening up my under eyes and brings more light in. Although it doesn’t actually conceal blemishes, its lightweight formula can be layered over your regular concealer to add a subtle radiance to the darker areas on the face. Since this is designed to brighten the complexion, don’t expect to match this to your regular foundation, try to get one shade lighter than your skin tone for best results. I love that no matter how much product I apply, it doesn’t sink into fine lines, accentuate my enlarged pores or crease throughout the day. I’ve also been using it daily to brighten up the inner corners of my eyes, instead of a shadow. It really is an excellent highlighter. It comes in 12 different flattering shades for light to deep skin tones and retails for $50.
