Touche Eclat Turns 21

Touche Eclat Turns 21

Those of us who remember the arrival of this genius product will be certainly showing their age this month (who me?) as YSL’s iconic highlighter pen turns 21. Revered at its launch for its unique delivery system (just click and conceal – how novel!), and also lauded for its pale pink shade that perfectly brightens dark tones around the eyes as well as adding unparalled radiance, it still reigns supreme to this day. Of course, many other brands have taken influence from YSL to create their own versions, but the many fans of Touche Eclat stay loyal – particularly now since they extended the shade range thus catering for all skin tones.

So Happy Birthday to you, dear Touche Eclat!
