Review: Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Neutralizers


Sephora’s recent Beauty Insider sale was the perfect excuse to test out the new trend of colour correctors, and of course when it came to picking out a couple to try YSL’s Touche Eclat Neutralizers were the obvious choice.

I picked up two shades of YSL’s Touche Eclat’s Neutralizers – Violet and Green. The Violet shade is meant to correct yellow, dull skin for a healthy-looking glow. This isn’t a tone I would usually think to pick up, but swatched on my hand, I was impressed with how brightening it looked.

I do, however, suffer from a lot of redness, especially around my nose, so I knew that I wanted to pick up a green shade.


Overall, I’m not sure I see much of a difference when it comes to the purple tone. The green colour, however, is amazing! I like to put this all around my nose and on my chin, underneath my foundation. I’ve tried blending this in with my Beauty Blender and a foundation brush, but I think my favourite way to use this is with my fingers.

The only downside to this corrector is it’s longevity. Now, I haven’t tested a lot of correctors, so I’m not sure if this is typical, but I find that after a few hours, I’m back to my regular red self. And reapplying is not really an option, unless you want to re-apply all of your foundation.

Overall, I would rate this product a B, but this experience has definitely got me interested in trying out other colour correctors from different brands. Do you have any recommendations? Let me know!
