Well I've tried it and prefer Dior Skinflash, I love it because it makes my dark circles disappear, it makes me feel glam and confident, it hides my nose to lip lines and if I put a ring of it around my mouth it makes it look pouty. I love the consistency it's like a gel cream with doesn't dry out and go cakey. But please remember it will highlight protruding areas, i.e. Protruding bags, spots etc...It is a highlighter not a concealer! I wouldn't be without my Skinflash, repurchased twice.
I bought it thinking it was some sort of magic concealer and then never used it when I discovered it does feck all to undereye circles. Still have it 10 years later probably time to chuck but it annoys me that I spent so much and got so little
I used it years ago as a concealer (pretty much when it first came out so not many alternatives). It was probably best of a bad bunch then, but it gave me hideously sore and watery eyes and still does if I try it again now.
I recently bought the Becca undereye illuminator after a recommendation on here, and it's brilliant. Game-changing product. I have genetic dark circles that are always there but turn into horrible bruise-like rings if I am stressed, tired or eating badly.
I used to use Touche Eclat when I was younger, and it worked well for me then, when I was less knackered and generally better-looking!
Vintage I personally love Skinflash but don't blast me if you hate it! 😂 For me it's the consistency that I like, like a cream/gel. Personally it helps my wrinkles to look less prominent and helps with the downwards look of my lips at the sides. I just love it but you might not!
The By Terry version is better. As I understand it, Terry is responsible for the original YSL formulation. By Terry is her own brand and her version is far better. However, neither is a concealer, more 'soft focus' highlighters...
