A Classic Upgraded: Touche Eclat High Cover

It’s your favourite highlighterconcealer, but better.

Portrait of Tammy Strobel

YSL Beaute’s Touche Eclat Radiant Touch changed the way women used makeup when it launched in 1992. The highlighting concealer, a sheer, gently illuminating product that brightened skin and added a glow, gave us the original nomakeup makeup look.

The French girls loved it. But everyone else – who didn’t have perfect French-girl skin that needed only light concealing action – wanted higher coverage for blemishes and dark circles.

Enter this new chapter for the well-loved beauty classic: Touche Eclat High Cover. As the name promises, the concealer delivers enough coverage to take on dull, unevenlytoned skin – under the eyes, on eyelids, and over scars. It comes in 16 shades (five more than Radiant Touch), in colour-correcting tones that neutralise blue, violet and red undertones.

Everything else we love about the OG stays. High Cover sets to the same luminescent finish, using soft-focus fi llers and light-refl ecting pigments to give skin a glow-kissed look. The texture is still as lightweight, blendable and creamy. Even the iconic click-click pen design stays (in gold, too). It costs $62. – CT
