Meghan, Rosie and Zoë All Swear By This Cult Concealer
Once in a while, there comes along a beauty product that shakes up the industry and completely changes the game when it comes to product formulation. One such shining beacon first launched way back in 1992 and came in the form of a now iconic golden pen. Inside, it held a first-of-its-kind formula—a skin illuminator and highlighter that was used to add light and radiance to skin at a time when matte complexions were all the rage.
Of course, the product that I’m talking about is the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Illuminating Pen (£27). A hybrid between a highlighter and concealer, this click-pen product boasts a multitude of uses. Apply it beneath eyes to brighten dark circles, on tops of cheekbones for a subtle highlight, around the nose to diffuse redness or wherever you want skin to generally look a little more radiant.
And you don’t have to take my word for it. With legions of devotees, a loyal celeb following and an incredible six pens sold every minute around the world, its popularity looks set to stick around for another 29 years at least.
“I use it where it is needed and when it is needed,” explained Tom Pecheux, Global Beauty Director for YSL Beauté. “It is not designed to answer every makeup need, but for when the skin is a little sad and grey or you need a good highlighter with a little camouflage, it is perfect. It is a very gentle way to highlight.”
It turns out, the A-list very much agree with Pecheux, with pretty much every celeb wholeheartedly declaring their allegiance to Touche Éclat at one point or another.
