Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat White: Review and Swatches
When it comes to liquid highlighters, the YSL Touche Eclat reigns supreme and recently, Yves Saint Laurent has released a completely white version of this holy grail product. Aptly named the Touche Eclat White ($50 CAD), the shimmer-free highlighter promises a high impact strobing effect. Curious? Confused? Want to learn more? Read on to see some swatches and read my review......

Packaging:
The Touche Eclat White comes in the classic Touche Eclat tube finished with a shiny silvery-white coating. The applicator is a small synthetic brush and to dispense the product, simply click the button on the bottom of the pen.

Formulation:
As its name suggests, Touch Eclat White is a completely white shimmer-free highlighting liquid. Formulation-wise, this is exactly the same as the other Touche Eclat shades. The texture is thin, creamy, and easy-to-blend. When I first swatched the product on the back of my hand, I was shocked by how crazy bright and white the color is. As I tried to blend it, I also thought that the formulation seemed a bit patchy. However, the performance is much better on the face.

My skin tone is around NC20 and as a brow bone highlight, the Touche Eclat White brings so much highlight and dimensions! The product is paper white but when applied and blended thoroughly on the right areas of the face (ex. brow bone, top of the cheeks, middle of the nose), it provides a potent yet natural highlight that's completely matte. The pigmentation is fairly sheer so you won't have to worry about ending up with patchy white spots. With that said, this particular shade is really made for the lighter skin tones. If you are anything darker than medium, I would recommend sticking to the other shades in the range to avoid ending up with a highlight that's way too bright for your natural skin tone. All in all, this is a great alternative to the original Touche Eclat if you have a paler skin tone and are looking for that extra pop of brightening effect!

Availability:
YSL is available online and in stores at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, and Holt Renfrew.
