This Is, Hands Down, the Hardest-Working Concealer I Have Ever Tried
What's more satisfying than the click of an Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat concealer? How that one short sound signifies the basis of my completely blurred-out complexion.
Earlier this year, the luxury beauty brand released its Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat High Cover Radiant Concealer ($70) — a more opaque version of the original highlighting concealer. The brand promised that the next-gen version of the pen had the ability to cover and brighten up hyperpigmented areas (even ones that have bluish undertones). Having used the OG makeup favourite, I jumped at the opportunity to test drive it.
The first time I tried out High Cover, which has the same click-pen packageing as the original, I knew that one press of the button was all I'd need to cover the surface area beneath one eye. What I hadn't expected was that the first layer I had laid down was enough to completely hide the blue-toned under-eyes, as well as blur out the redness around my nostrils.
What surprised me even more was how easy it was to use on the go. Now, I take this pen with me everywhere I go — often using it in the back of Ubers. I typically sweep on the liquid with its brush tip and tap it out with my fingertips (after sanitizing my hands, of course).
There was nothing wrong with the Touche Éclat Radiant Touch — I adored its lightweight wear and highlighting effect. I can say the same in regard to my relationship with this concealer — we just clicked.
