Touche Eclat by YSL & male politicians!
I've read an article in the Guardian that TOUCH ECLAT by YSL is being used by politics MEN in the UK & Europe.



Tony Blair & Michael Portillo who was confiding about the miracle powers of Yves St Laurent’s Touche Eclat, the shiny pearly stuff that magics away those tiresome under eye bags.

That made me cursious about trying touch eclat.

& I remeber that thred about the must have cosmitcs item & Touch Eclat was so popular, So those the fan of TOUCH ECLAT please tell me

how does it feel on the skin? & what does it do exactly?
& how do use it?
I heared it can be used on a bare a skin by itself to give the instant radiance??!!


thanks

if T.E. to be used by itself , does anyone can tell that I am using make up on my face?

Is it shiny or matt?

I remember that Al Gore paid $700 for a make-up artist to ladle on powder to "kill the shine" for a TV debate in the U.S. presidential election.

so does it need powder? which I doon't wana to.

It's Matte. I love it, personally - I just use it when I have little spots of redness for whatever reason.

I use it now and then to cover red spots, bad eyes, etc. It really is a great product.

i just got this..
this is what i was told...
apparently it comes in 3 shades...
1,2,3

1 is good for most people-pink undertones
2 is specifically for asian skin-yellow undertones
3 is for darker skin-brown?...

i got 1 & 2...thought i don't really know what i am going to do with 2?...
but i have mediteranean skin so i wasn't sure which would be best...

does anyone have anymore info in terms of best ways to use it...
i just used it under my eyes...
and i have to say it smelled really great and felt very light and luxurious at the same time...

...

It looks great to use around the lips if you are using lipstick or gloss after, because it illuminates whatīs inside (in this case, the lips colour).

You can also use a tiny bit aroung the nose to stop the redness.

Are there only three shades? Foundations normally have more than 10 colour options, so will the colour match be a problem?

not really because itīs not a concealer, in reality itīs an iluminator, that is mostly worn as a concealer, because it catches the light and hydes dark spots such as undereye circles etc...

But you have to be a bit careful if you are beeing photographed with it, because the flashes reflect the light and you end up looking like a panda

I see, thanks for the tip! and I had foolishly thought all this time that it was just like a concealer pen, but packed with lots of reflective particles, but I stand corrected...I'm just going to stick with a good ol' concealer to cover up my spots now...
