Working the FAB grind can sometimes take it’s toll on a girl’s complexion – what with late nights scouring the magazines and internet for the hottest topics to write about (FYI, I love my job) – so sometimes, a little help is needed.

Touche Éclat is a little gold pen of miracles – their website states you can “catch 8 hours of sleep with the click of a pen” and believe me, they kid you not. The award-winning complexion highlighter promises to fade away dark circles and fine lines, with its radiance-boosting Luminocaptide Complex. Skin appears illuminated creating a rested and refreshed look.

Often being the bearer of panda eyes in the morning (hot), I decided to try out YSL when my Mum bought it for the first time. The blemish cover liquid comes in a 2.5ml shiny (I told you I was a magpie!) pen-like tube, and releases the concealer when the bottom of the pen is clicked. The concealer then gets deposited onto a soft brush ready to apply to the face.  I find that you only really need one-two clicks to brighten up the under-eye area and that the concealer is extremely effective. So effective in fact, that I have received the ultimate compliment of: “your skin looks flawless!” whilst wearing it. What more could a girl wish for than a beautifully flawless complexion?

The only drawback to the product is that you will be required to pay £24.50 for the privilege of Touche Éclat – more expensive than my MAC Studio Fix foundation – and at 2.5ml, you need to use it sparingly to ensure it lasts.

Overall though, I love this product and would recommend it for those days when you just need a lil’ helping hand.
