YSL Touche Eclat Wild

YSL’s Touche Eclat has been something of a makeup bag staple since I was about 15. Yes, now I know I didn’t have dark circles or need illumination, but there was something about the clicky gold pen that I just had  to have!

Now, for Spring and Summer, YSL have launched a special collectors edition of the iconic concealer complete with special leopard packaging. The outer case is a printed tube which covers the regular golden box, but it’s when you get inside that it really gets exciting!

The tube is completely covered in a leopard print pattern, and it’s almost 3D since it’s etched into the tube. This means, if like me, it takes an age to get through one of these tubes, the fun print won’t get rubbed off or start to look tacky and messy.

Everything else about the product is classic Touche Eclat. Unfortunately, the Wild edition only comes in a single shade (shade 1) which means it’s fine for light-skinned girls like me, but anything darker than mid-toned skin wil have trouble try to use it, which is such a shame! Shade 1 is a light, pink concealer which is great for covering dark circles and eye bags, not to mention adding a little light to your cupid’s bow or detracting from marionette lines. Since I only use this sparingly (when I’m going somewhere nice, or I am feeling not-quite-tip-top) a regular tube normally lasts about 6 months for me. Because of this I bought 2, so I’m stocked up until the next edition is brought out!

The concealer costs £25 and is available at Debenhams
