YSL’s magic wand

YSL's magic wandDid you know a Touche Éclat pen is sold every 10 seconds globally? The golden pen is somewhat of a magic wand, garnering cult status amongst beauty products – it captures the light, banishing signs of fatigue and fading out imperfections.

YSL’s Touche Éclat has been brightening up the lives of women all over the world for the past 20 years. And to celebrate YSL has launched a limited edition Touche Éclat, which is draped in the light of delicately hammered gold.

‘I love gold, a magical colour for a woman’s reflection, the colour of the sun.’
– Yves Saint Laurent

With just one click, this moisturising and ultra-fluid emulsion eliminates shadows from the side of the nose, the corners of the mouth, the hollow of the chin and expression lines. It embellishes the eye area, making you look rested and bright-eyed. The very handy format means you can pop it into any size handbag. And it’s suitable for all skin types and tested under dermatological control.

According to Lloyd Simmonds, creative director for make-up at YSL, Touche Éclat’s biggest strength is that it doesn’t cover, it illuminates.

‘Dark areas give way to radiance,’ he says. ‘The light is never "applied", it springs from inside. It’s a genuine glow.’

Touche Éclat’s golden numbers

10 – How many seconds it takes for one pen to be sold somewhere in the world
12 – The number of shades available in 2012
20 – The total weight in grams of a Touche Éclat pen
200 – The average number of clicks in one Touche Éclat

What we say:
When I heard that one pen is sold every 10 seconds globally, I knew this had to be a fantastic product. And it is! With one click of the pen the fluid emulsion glided onto my skin and dissolved as I tapped it in with my fingers. My dark circles vanished and my eyes instantly looked illuminated. It’s my new best friend!

Available in a selection of shades at YSL counters in fine stores and retails for R445.
