Alternative to Touche Eclat?

Had a nasty reaction to this, with red, dry and scaly skin under the eyes.

What else can I use to disguise those bags?

Someone mentioned on here a few days ago a 2 stage product you can get from Boots "Dr something or other". I will do a search.

I have been really pleasantly surprised by Collection 2000 'Illuminating Touch - Light diffusing concealer'.

It's really cheap so if your a brands kind of gal you might be a bit dubious, but I think it's really very good.

Either this or this

MrsTiddles Sun 20-Jul-08 21:02:36

if you had a reaction to touche eclat I would try clinique or almay as a gentle alternative first.

Benefit Erase Paste - tis fab. But don't fanny about with brushes, just dab on with ring finger & blend.

Wordsmith Mon 21-Jul-08 13:11:39

I always used Body Shop Lightening touch

JRocks Mon 21-Jul-08 13:14:39

Erase paste here too.. or boi-ing

I had a reaction to Touch Eclat too, and I'm not allergic to anything, I don't have sensitive skin at all.

cyanarasamba Mon 21-Jul-08 13:17:43

Yes I'm not ususally the sensitive sort either - how strange.

Was made worse for a while as I was adding more Touche Eclat to try to cover up the rash!

Backgammon Mon 21-Jul-08 13:19:58

Another vote here for clinique airbrush.

I had exactly the same response to Touche Eclat. I have v dry skin, and I think it just dried me out rather than being an allergic reaction.

I was recommended (by a v good make-up artist!) Estee Lauder Creme Concealer, and it's great, like a v thick tinted moisturiser - and it works fine on its own without foundation.

I buy Tesco under eye concealer in emergencies (ie if I run out of Touche Eclat and the dept stores are closed or am skint!) and it is really good. The only reason I don't buy it all the time is it actually works out more expensive than Touche Eclat as it lasts about two weeks with regular use whereas my touche eclat last three months!

Do aldi still do make up?? I'm looking for an alternative to you he eclat

Bombardier25966 Sat 07-Oct-17 23:52:15

This is an old thread!

Yes, Aldi still do the concealer. Just checked their website and it's in stock from tomorrow!

DammitAllNamesAreTaken Sun 08-Oct-17 01:25:09

The Kiko one is good but the brush is a little stiffer but gives better coverage.
I also like the L'Oréal lumi one.
