YSL Beaute’s Touche Eclat click-pen highlighter was the first of its kind when it was introduced in 1991. This month, it has a spin-off: Touche Eclat White. Here’s the low-down on each of the two.
The original highlighter/concealer, Touche Eclat ($62, in eight shades), was designed to impart radiance to skin. Where to use it: the inner eye corner to brighten, on the nose bridge to make it look higher, under the brow bones to frame the face, at the top of the cheeks to bring out your cheekbones, and on the upper lip line to make it pop. But as a concealer, it hides only the mildest redness.
Touche Eclat White ($62) is a one-shade highlighter for all skin tones. Use it anywhere you want natural radiance – under the eyes, along the cheekbones – before you apply foundation, says makeup artist Larry Yeo. “It leaves a whitish veil on the skin that transforms into natural radiance under base makeup.” Other uses: Just a little on the inner eye corners works like shimmer eyeshadow to make eyes look less tired. And for special occasions, apply after foundation for more glow.
