Does anyone else NOT get "touche Eclat" by YSL???

Here's the rub.....I have always had one of these in my make up bag (at least for the past 10 years) but the other day whilst putting it on I thought to myself "why am I bothering" it really makesa blind bit of difference to my shadows under my eyes.....I don't think I have ever thought "wow" when putting this on, and have obviously been sucked in, duped, conned, stupid when reading about how this is a "must have product" "Iconic beauty product" blah blah....

Therfore, can anyone recommend a great under eye concealer that actually works? Or is it just me??!!

No, you're right, it isn't any good for under eye concealing and it makes me cross that it is marketed as such.

I use it, not on my monumental eye shadows but on the outer corner of my eyes, shadows around nostrils, number 11's in betwen my eyebrows (I sound like quite the catch, don't I?)

It doesn't have enough pigment to cover shadows ,as you have discovered!
I think prescriptives concealers are great. loads of clours, great coversge and last for ages.

I love Touche for other reasons, not its concealing.

Get thee to Benefit & try the Erase Paste - 'tis great.

Bobbi Brown Eye Brightener is so much better than TE. It comes in a range of colours so you get a good match and really makes a difference to under eye shadows. Mine are often dark purple, and with this I can leave the house without frightening small children!

thank you ladies!!! So maidamess, do you use TE more for highlighting?! Love the thought of calling my wrinkles between eyes number 11's - really made me chuckle!!!

I use Maybeline mousse concealer, it's very thick and gives excellent coverage. I used to use touche eclat but it's not really very good, is it?

Never use concealor at all Looks like a panda when I see it.

I've never bought it but don't really have darkness under my eyes anyway.

Good to hear it's not all it's cracked up to be because I was thinking I should have one (just because everyone raves!).

I completely agree, OP - I think touche Eclat is rubbish, truly as someone who has always had the problem of dark circles (since a child...)

By the way, the best thing that works for me is using an eye cream with antioxidant in, getting enough sleep and drinking a lot of water.

I use erase paste as already mentioned. Though not on a hot day as it melts (not a good look)

You are all completely mad.

"And on the 7th Day God rested...

but while he was resting he noticed that poor old Eve was looking rather knackered, poor thing, so he made YSL Touche Eclat. He saw that it was good and then he put his feet up"

It says so in my bible.

Yes I use it to brighten the shadowy bits on my face. Actually the way I look most mornings I should just trowel it on. But I find it useful just to perk up my make up if I'm going out.

I have a little Benefit Realness of Concealness pack I keep in my bag, and I love Boiing (shade 2) for my dark circles - it's the best I've found for my skin when I'm wearing tinted moisturiser.

The boots one is much better imo, although I have never used a better mascara than the YSL one. It is fab.

maidamess Mon 28-Jul-08 10:39:54

Yes I think the no 7 one has more coverage. Still not enough for my purples though....

ranting Mon 28-Jul-08 10:43:37

You really shouldn't of said that, my mental image of you as a glamour puss has dissolved and I now imagine that you look like duputy dog Mwink

JRocks Mon 28-Jul-08 10:53:46

I prefer erase paste or Boiing too, anything else isn't really beefy enough for the job grin

GrapeJelly Mon 28-Jul-08 15:13:29

Shows what good/expensive marketing campaigns can do....Tesco also do a very good concealer

WinkyWinkola Mon 28-Jul-08 15:15:25

And that 8 hour cream. It's just slimy gunk to me. I don't like it at all. I just come out in the biggest plooks after using it. May as well have smeared goose fat on my face.

GrapeJelly Mon 28-Jul-08 15:16:58

Yep, WW. It's just smelly expensive vaseline.

girlsallaround Mon 28-Jul-08 15:19:53

i have found all the YSL makeup products a load of junk

cheesesarnie Mon 28-Jul-08 15:20:05

PinkPussyCat Mon 28-Jul-08 15:24:41
