When YSL went on 40% sale at counters in Malaysia, I took the opportunity to pick up the iconic YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch highlighter pen. Its touted as an liquid highlighter with illuminating qualities so it conceals slightly and highlights at one go.
For many, the YSL Touche Eclat highlighter pen is a magic wand that erases imperfections at a touch. For me, I’m wondering what the hype is about.
Yes, its a dinky little tool with brush tip applicator that you can tote around on the go. Good for travel but otherwise nothing too special for me. Also, many fail to mention that its not a twist type clicky pen mechanism. Oh no! YSL, being luxury opts for a push-button clicky system like that of a ball point pen. See that black button at the back of the pen? That’s where you press down.
Now I’d like you to imagine this. You have just slathered on your moisturizer and sunscreen in the morning and then you reach for your YSL Touche Eclat highlighter pen. You click it as you would a ball pen, but that high gloss gold surface slips over and over due to the lotions from your hands. Its frustrating and I dislike it. Also, did I mention the gold body attracts fingerprints better than any fingerprinting tape the CSI use?
