"Touche Eclat" is French for "touch of light, " which is exactly what this product provides. Touche Eclat, by Yves St. Laurent, is the perfect product for brightening up the skin around your eyes, to make you look more rested, and to highlight where you want to. It comes in four shades, from Luminous Radiance to Luminous Toffee, and one will be perfect for any skin tone. It is great for any skin type, whether it's oily, dry, or sensitive.

A built-in brush fills with the light-weight product when you click on the black button on the bottom. One click is enough for your whole face (if it's not, you're using too much); when you first start using it, you will need to click several times to get the product up into the brush, but after that, one click will do. This is not a concealer; it is a lightener and brightener.

Used around the eyes, especially below the eyes and at the inner corner just above the eyes, Touche Eclat will help you look more awake, and make your eyes look just slightly farther apart. Don't use it right under the lower lash line, though, as it may migrate into the eyes. You can use it on the sides of the nose, the hollow of the chin, or around the contour of the lips (where it helps keep lipstick from feathering). Apply it with the built-in brush, then blend into skin with a clean brush or a clean finger. It can be used under make-up, or over make-up for an anytime touch-up.

Touche Eclat has been given numerous make-up awards, from Glamour, Vogue, and In-Style magazine readers, and from make-up artists. I'd have given it a full-on 5, except that the price, $39.50, puts it out of reach of many women. If you can save up for it, it's worth the price, but it is definitely a special gift to yourself.
