The Touche Éclat Glow Shots from YSL

Many beauty fans will not need an introduction to YSL’s Touche Éclat – the famous concealer/highlighter hybrid, which has had pride of place on dressing tables for longer than I can remember.  Over the last couple of years the Touche Éclat range has grown to encompass lots of new products and I’m here to show you one today. YSL have taken inspiration from the light-giving powers of Touche Éclat to create the Touche Éclat Glow Shots*.

The Touche Éclat Glow Shots is YSL’s first liquid light concentrate, which they describe to be the ultimate in highlighting power. It’s an incredibly advanced highlighter, which features a workable, buildable formula. It brings an undeniable dewy radiance to the face, offering expert strobing at your fingertips. YSL describe the highlighter as having a ‘tri-active formula’ thanks to the hydrating texture, anti-fatigue complex and ultra-fine micro pearls. When you apply the Touche Éclat Glow Shots to the skin, they work to plump the skin with moisture, which helps to enhance the light reflection. They also work to banish dullness and hide shades that are present on tired skin. The blend of ultra fine micro pearls boost the glow to the limit, giving a burst of iridescence to the skin. 

YSL suggest three different ways to use the Glow Shots, which they describe as: Naked Shot, Mixed Shot and Top Shot. Naked Shot is applying the highlighter all over the face with your fingers or a brush, for a burst of radiance all over the skin. Mixed Shot is the notion of mixing the highlighter with your foundation or moisturiser. Top Shot is more traditional method of applying after foundation – blend it into your cheekbone, brow bone, cupids bow and the bridge of the nose.

The Touche Éclat Glow Shots are available in three shades, which have been designed to perfectly match different skintones. ‘Daylight’ is the shade I have here which is just perfect for skin like mine, which is light and fair. They also have ‘Sunrise’ for light-medium skintones and ‘Sunset’ for medium-dark skintones. You can see by my swatch of Daylight, that is just the perfect wash of light, it’s perfect for giving the skin a more awake feel and looks beautiful on the skin. The Touche Éclat Glow Shots are quite pricey, retailing at £22.50 each – however what I can say is that a little bit goes a long way, so I think they are totally worth it!
