I have realised that it is this that's drying out the skin under my eyes, as it was much better when I had a week without makeup. Thing is, I do need something! Can't be too pricey either, cos we is a bit skint, innit.
Can I just ask how old your tube of Touche Eclat is? After a while they do tend to grow bugs which can give you an eczema-type irritation, so if you've had it a while it may be that, not the formulation itself iyswim.
But another alternative is Boots No7, which is just as good, and not pricey.
Yes, just check and they say it is a highlighter pen. This is the bumff off the Boots webpage for it:

Benefit's Erase Paste is really good for dark circles/brightness under the eyes, it comes in 3 shades but it isn't light reflecting, they also used to do a Hollywood Glow thing that was like Touche Eclat oh and Mac's strobe cream is like touche eclat but for the whole face. These products restricted for winter wear as we live in Dubai where it would just melt most of the time!
