Hi everyone!!!

I've decided to do a "competition" between products that belong to the same make-up category, today the lucky chosen category is: under eye concealers/highlighters!!
I must confess I'm addicted to them, I don't ever leave the house without popping some on, it gives an instant lift to the whole face, looking less tired and immediately fresher, but enough with the blabber...


I must say this product has a lovely texture, but not quite the right coverage for my taste. Even though the colour range isn't quite wide I wasn't really impressed, the shades are either too light or too dark or too peachy for my skin tone, I purchased shade number 2 luminous ivory, that really matches me only on days when I'm particularly pale. 

I would not like to say bad things about this product because I so love the packaging and the texture, but it didn’t last very long on my skin (I have oily to combination skin), I had to reapply it after every 4 hours or so. I like the fact that you get quite a bit of product in the pen, I’ve been using it daily for the last 3 months (yes I’m particularly pale thanks to my acne medications that don’t allow me to go in the sun ! ) and it's still going strong, so I big thumb up for that!


I love this little miracle-maker!! Even if it only comes in three shades I’m a perfect match with the n.20, the texture is slightly thicker than the YSL one, so it has a bit more coverage  (amazing!!) and is still very easy to blend and pat into the skin. It lasts all day and I don’t need to reapply it! The only down side is that it finishes really quickly, I have to repurchase every 5/6 weeks.

I tested them both on bare skin because I rarely wear foundation so, that said… my pick is CHANEL ÉCLAT LUMIÈRE with a because it has a bit more coverage and matches my skintone better, while YSL TOUCHE ECLAT comes in second maily for the colour range and secondly because I feel like this is more on the "illuminating" side and less on the correcting/concealing side, but I think it would work wonders if you use a corrector like the Bobbi Brown one underneath.

I hope this was helpful!!
