OMG - the new Touche Éclat is an actual concealer

The original YSL Touche Éclat is a makeup wonder, but it's not actually a concealer. The new Touche Éclat High Cover Radiance Concealer is. Yes.

You'll always remember your first Touche Éclat. The packaging was gorgeous, the product was brilliant - it definitely lived up to the hype. There was one thing about it, though, that was always a subject of irk for some people. Despite so many people using it to camouflage, it was never intended to be a concealer. It's a highlighter pen, the best in its class. But that's the thing, it's meant for adding luminosity, not for covering dark circles.

Read about the five things you never knew about YSL Touche Éclat.

This is what it's supposed to do.


It's as iconic a beauty product as MAC's Ruby Woo, but if it's concealing you're after, it ain't the product for the job. However, the new Touche Éclat High Cover Radiance Concealer may well be.

Here are the undereye concealers that really do their job

It's the same idea as the original, a click-pen with a brush. You apply it in the exact same way, but to cover your dark circles or blemishes. Use the original Touche Éclat over the High Cover to highlight - but only the eye area and other high planes, not that spot!


According to Elle, it's hitting YSL counters in the UK on February 13th. We're not sure about it's Irish release, but we're sure they won't leave us out.

Are you a fan of the original Touche Éclat? Are you as excited as the new concealing version as we are (i.e extremely)?
