Like other reviewers, I developed an allergic reaction to Touche Eclat after having used it for several years. I found the best way to deal with the allergy was to stop using the product, and to apply cooked oatmeal porridge (made with water only, not milk, and no salt) to the affected eyelids. Do this at least twice a day, allowing the porridge to sit on the skin for several minutes each time. Rinse it off with warm water and then apply moisturiser (my favourite is Diprobase, which you can buy… Read Full Review

I've used YSL touche eclat for several years and have never had any problems with it. Actually, the only one is that it runs out too fast! It really covers up dark circles and blemishes and although is a little on the pricey side, i think it's well worth it… Read Full Review

I tried touché éclat after seeing lively effects on a friend who used it. I really liked the effect when I used it first off but after a couple of days I developed thickened, dry, red skin under my eyes. I stopped using it immediately and had to apply plenty moisturiser over the next couple of weeks until my skin healed. Then a few weeks later I bumped into a woman who worked in the same hospital as me and she had a terrible rash under both eyes. She told me it was as a result of using… Read Full Review

I was bought Touche Eclat for my birthday just before Christmas. It was easy to use and covered where I needed it. I went up to Edinburgh for my birthday and, what I though was because of the cold weather, my eyes became really watery and sore. They were red underneath and so I was using more Touche Eclat to cover it up. Three months down the line and my eyes are even worse, all flaky dry skin and soreness. They water so much that I can't even keep the redness covered up now because it just… Read Full Review

Yves St Laurent Touche Eclat is a great little product. My make-up essential is always concealer before anything else after years of sun damage to my eyes from wearing thick, large glasses that created permanant dark circles that cover alot of my upper face.
I have an awful feeling that some of the bad reviews that claim it doesn't work as it is marketed are mainly down to poor or mis-application of the product. The concealer itself cleverly works to match your skin hue (which is why I think… Read Full Review

Never had allergies before until using this product. I now have very red swollen eyes with scaly skin. Always used No7 before this and will be going back to it once my eyes are better. Only wish I had read the reviews before using it, as this is the second time I used it not realising that it was this that was causing the soreness so kept reapplying. Very disappointed as an expensive brand… Read Full Review

I have been using Touche Eclat for several years but last autumn when I developed a dry, scaly patch under one of my eyes, and noticed some swelling, I switched to a different concealer from Mac. I was never certain it was Touche Eclat responsible, however, last week I did use it again and after one day I had the same reaction and this time round under both eyes! It has been five days now and it is only just beginning to go away. I would advise anyone using this for the first time to be… Read Full Review

I have never had any allergies and suddenly have developed horrific dry, red, scaly patches under my eyes, exactly where I had applied the touche eclat. Have been using the Dior version previously but swapped when it ran out. Still haven't cleared the rash, just hope it goes away soon. Glad I found others have been experiencing the same problems… Read Full Review

Having used this product occasionally for around 18 months, I suddenly developed an acute allergic reaction to it. It took a while to identify the cause, but the location of the rash is precisely where i put the touche eclat brush. The results are very red, uncomfortable, itchy and ugly and it's making me feel rubbish! I wouldnt recommend this product to anyone, because of the risk they may have the same reaction. I've never had an alergic reaction like this before. I had assumed that YSL stuff… Read Full Review

Had horrible allergic reaction to this while on my honeymoon - not best timing! I had been using it for a couple of weeks but suddenly became sensitized to it. Made under my eyes really puffy and wrinkled looking so, of course, I put on more without realising it was root of problem. Developed horrible, scaly eczema the next day which took over a month to go away once I stopped using the product. Got in touch with their customer services but didn't get a reply… Read Full Review

YSL Touche Eclat gave me the worst skin reaction I have ever had. My eyes swelled, my skin became red and scaly and itchy and it took more than a week to get it back to normal. It is very scary when this happens.
I would not recommend anyone try this stuff as it appears to happen to people who have used it successfully before as well as people trying for the first time. I am not usually prone to allergies so it took me a while to figure out what it was- I even (stupid me) put more on when the… Read Full Review

I have used this concealer/highlighter under my eyes for a few years now and cant imagine using anything else as it covers my dark circles, ok they don't dissapear completely but it does make them look sooo much better. I have very sensitive eyes and have reacted very badly to other creams and concealers but never to this!… Read Full Review

Yves St Laurent gave me red scaly patches under the eyes make me look 20 years older and has made me considerably depressed and withdrawn from socialising. Even to not wanting to leave the house. Will never use again and would consider legal action… Read Full Review

I developed exactly the same problem as the previous reviewer - very sore red ezcema under my eyes. I've never suffered with this before. As a concealer I wasn't impressed - it's very thin. L'oreal's touch maqic is tonnes better and half the price… Read Full Review

Didn't know how to take this product!
It Highlights the eye area (BONUS!!) but doesn't do the best job at actually concealing.
I tried applying this over and under my foundation to see which worked best with this product and for my face. Neither way did the Touch Eclat highlighter cover my dark bags under my eyes.
Instead I tried first applying my MAC Select Cover Up concealer (which has always worked wonders in covering the black circles, but not so great on highlighting the area).
It… Read Full Review

The product I like the least from YSL. Lasts long, confortable, easy to use, does not harm your skin, but, does not offer full coverage. Very sheer. Better for women who look for something to illuminate their undereye and who don't have dark circles… Read Full Review

This concealer is the best one I used so far, because not only it covers dark circles, also brightens your face, making you look fresh all day. It's worth every penny!… Read Full Review
