Spring 2017 – YSL Touche Eclat Le Cushion

Ever building on the Touche Eclat empire, YSL will be launching the coveted glow-getting formula in a new format for Spring 2017.  Yep, you guessed it…a cushion.  LE Cushion, to be exact. 😉 The product will be offered in 7 shades designed to enhance radiance with natural coverage.

In addition to that exciting news, the Company is also brining in three Touch Eclat Glow Shots, a highlighter boasting the hefty promise of a 10-hour strobe effect AND ultra hydration, via hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and Ruscus.  Glow Shots will come in 3 shades:

  • No.1 Daylight – Create a reflective, mirror effect (light skin tones)
  • No.2 Sunrise – Create a rosy glow (light skin tones)
  • No.3 Sunset –  Create a healthy glow (medium to dark skin tones)

And…one more dashing add…the YSL Touche Eclat White, Limited Edition.  I’m already chomping at the bit for this one because a “porcelain effect” is like music to my goth-y ears… It can be used for adding a beautiful sheen, or for more extreme strobe and contour effects.

The chrome is the stand out here, contrasting with the other solids (colors which don’t truly beg to be stared at.  Blue and green aren’t at all humdrum, to be sure, with their rich and unconventional flare…but chrome seems to illicit a double-take more often.)

Chromes are not always so easy, I’ve found…failing to nail the “mirrored” look most of the time.  Glossy topcoats help, but it’s got to be a good formula…and don’t be disappointed if you can’t quite recite “Mirror, Mirror, on the wall…”

Imabeautygeek shares some swatches and insights of her own, so definitely check it out!  I haven’t tried this myself but by the looks of it, it falls a little shy of the mark…  

Then again, I think I’m inevitably disappointed with chromes because they aren’t as reflective as my mind *thinks* they should be.  I suppose, in this case, if I want to channel my inner Robocop, I better stick to – no pun intended – falsies, or stickers!
