Has anybody discovered a reasonable and comparable touche eclat alternative? I'm olive skinned so it can't be too white/pink.

TIA! smilesmile

approx £18

PS - if ever I've tried stuff like the L'oreal etc equivalent colour and finish is ALL WRONG.

Foundation preference seems to be very individual... I'm never sure if the expensive ones are always worth paying for?

MissDD1971 Thu 26-Sep-13 12:55:23

Lazysuzanne - the air brush is more a concealer. in fact that's what it is, it's light reflective and not a foundation.

FWIW - some cheaper foundations are good - Maybelline etc - but they keep changing packaging.

it depends what you want and if you have the money to pay more then why not? technology of more expensive brands often does filter down to cheaper ones though and Chanel etc I think owns Bourjois etc.

sorry - yes the air brush IS a concealer as is the Touche Eclat.

more for use under eyes than anywhere else as light reflective.

personally since using them I wouldn't use anything else - for a light reflecting concealer for eye area.

ooh thanks for the Clinique tip! Agree it's worth investing in quality

Not used it myself but ave been told the aldi version is very very good ....

I love the Clinique one too, but I haven't used Touche Eclat before so I can't compare it to that.

Clarins do one. It's just as good. Bit cheaper. Three colours. I think.

Collection 2000, £5 ish. It's absolutely fantastic (and I've spent £££ in the Past on YSL!)

I used touché éclat for years but I'm an Aldi's own convert. It's just as good and around £4. Seriously!

Space NK have one by Terry - v good

BlondieBear Thu 26-Sep-13 19:13:23

I agree the collection one is really good, so cheap and lasts for ages.

HandMini Thu 26-Sep-13 19:19:59

I've used the By Terry one from Space NK and it is v good, but similar price to Touche Éclat.

Just bought the Collection one and it's good. Goes a long way so apply sparingly.

chummymummy7 Thu 26-Sep-13 21:01:48

What is the Collection one called please?

SundaySimmons Fri 27-Sep-13 08:36:54

Having Wasted hundreds of pounds on regularly buying touché éclat I found the collection 2000 one to be much, much better.

Oh my! Apologies for misspelling your name chummymummy. I turned you into a pornstar for a moment! sad

I've used the L'Oreal one for years and couldn't be without it (I'm fair but have slightly yellow-toned skin...which is not as weird as it sounds!)

I think it's called Radiant Touch. I do NOT rate the No7 one, btw.

MissDD1971 Fri 27-Sep-13 09:43:02

I think I want to try the Aldi one now! grin

i've got the Aldi Lacura one, its fine.

chummymummy7 Fri 27-Sep-13 09:53:30

Thanks for the link Sundaysimmons...and the porn star moment!

PrivateBenjamin Fri 27-Sep-13 22:50:04

I've used some really expensive make up and Aldi is as good as any of them. I was a snob. It's so good. Give it a go, you have nothing to lose!
