Some beauty products are so iconic that they are just permanently scorched on to our brains, as we all know what they are without even realising it. TOUCHE ECLAT; we all know what that is don’t we? Click, click, the magic highlighting pen. I remember buying one years ago on a student budget and being incredible economical with it because it was out of my price range really, but I had to try it. Back then there was only one shade, a light rosy pink, and now there are TEN SHADES! TEN! For every skin tone.
Back then I used this as a concealer – all under the eyes – oh, racoon eyes. Now we know better; this product is a highlighter, a multi-tasker, it should be used sparingly. I have been getting reacquainted to mine, and I have been using it lightly around the eye area, in the smile lines, and at the corners of my lips.
For those die hard fans, YSL offer collectors edition special packaging releases and this year it is the Wild Edition; a feisty leopard print; black on gold. It costs the same as a regular plain pen, and just makes your make up bag look more fun.
This special design pen comes in one shade only; Rose Radiance, a pale soft pink. The pink works as a general highlighting shade, and it has a sheer finish without sparkles.
I haven’t used this pen in quite a few years but I have been touting this pen around with me as a perk-me-up. God knows my tired face can do with the little instant flashes of light.
This pen is exclusive to Selfridges until the 1st of April, when it is out nationwide. It costs £25.
