Sneak a peek: YSL’s Touche Eclat launching SIX shades

And not a minute to soon…

 

For years YSL’s iconic Touche Eclat has been the go-to concealer for millions of women around the World – one pen is sold every 10 seconds! But with the market flooded with great and cheaper alternatives (Clinique’s Airbrush Concealer and L’Oreal Touche Magique being my current favourites) I wondered when YSL was going to step up its game… Cue 6 fab new shades

Let’s face it, Touche is a wonder product, as a highlighter it’s still unrivalled, but that pale pinky shade isn’t for everyone. Finally YSL have taken note and responded to the UK market’s ever darkening perma tans.  

With six new shades, there should be a touch for everyone.

The new shades hit Selfridges on 19 May 2011 before going nationwide on 7 July RRP£24.50.

Review: VICHY DERMABLEND Ultra-Corrective Make up Stick

Perfect concealer, how I covert thee! I’ve searched high and low for my perfect match, and blown some cash along the way. Lancome, Laura Mercier, Benefit, Clinique… none of you have been quite right. After recently suffering a flury of spots, the search became a mission impossible, that was until I heard about Vichy Dermablend.

Dermablend is the market leader in corrective make up. It covers all complexion imperfections even severe ones including acne, vitiligo, sunspots, age related spots, and angioma, can even be used to temporarily cover tattoos. Sounds a bit severe, I know. All I’m looking for is a good spot covering concealer, well its marriage with skincare supremo Vichy has made dermablend much more accessible, and with this new make up stick, that’s exactly what you get.

Nude 14

This multi use product can be used as a foundation to cover large areas or more localised as a spot concealer. Enriched with an oil that dissolves on contact with the skin’s heat and a texture that is creamy yet non-greasy or sticky, thick, but not cakey. It can cover the nastiest of spots and lasts all day. The stick’s handy for popping in your bag, but you rarely need to top it up. For best result apply using finger tips, warm between the fingers then dab on spots.

Available online and in Boots stores £18. I’d advise popping in boots and asking for a sample, it’s always better to try before you buy.
