Which touch éclat shade?

I've got a JL voucher for Christmas and thought I'd give the YSL touch eclat highlighter a whirl - but can't get out over the next few weeks to anywhere with a beauty counter to test them out.

I looked online and there seem to be several different shades! I'm a pretty pale strawberry blonde/redhead. Can anyone advise on which shade would be best? If it's too much of a gamble I'll wait until I can test them but it would be nice to get rid of my eye bags/shadows before then! grin

I'm the same colouring as you and use shade 2 for my horrible eye bags!

Shade 2 is the popular one.

I've used both, I do t think there's much in it once it's on!

Op I preferred the Dior Skinflash. It's a lot better imo. I wear 002 candle light I think the shade name is. My friend wears it too she's blonde with a purple undertone, I'm dark brunette with red undertones. We are both very pale. We both use 002.

Thank you - I was leaning towards no 2 so will give it a whirl. Hoping for a miracle to hide newborn and toddler induced eye bags!

Can I just say, it is a light reflective highlighter, so it is good for dark circles but anything protruding it with highlight. It is not a concealer as such, so spots and puffiness will only be highlighted. I use mine under my eyes as I have dark circles and lines, my eyes do not have puffy bags. I also use mine around my nose and the lines from nose to lip.
