    Default How to pick the right color of touche eclat ?

    I would love to try this but from what I can tell there are three colors and no store near me to go see in person. Anyone know what the colors are like?

    I am pale but I do have olive skin.

    I think one of them is pink, yellow and neutral based.

    I'd try the yellow one, that's usually the color to use for olive skins and just for concealers in general.

    sounds logical - you wouldn't happen to know the name of the yellow based one?



    hmmm I'm going to try the #1 color looks the most like what you've described. Thanks!

    Wish me luck

    For the first time in my life, I noticed this stuff mentioned in another thread last night. What's the deal on it? Is it wonderful or something?

    I bought the #1 color and it's waaaaaaaay too pink for my skin.
    I am totally dissapointed.

    You need the yellow. I am pale, but have olive undertones in my skin and the yellow works on me. Remember, Touche Eclat isn't a concealer, it's actually a reflector. It will reflect light on your dark areas, which acts to minimize shadows, blemishes, etc.

    OK, I have no idea what Touche Eclat is. Based on the context of the above posts I am thinking it is something like Benefit Eye Bright. I bought some of that because Carmindy on What Not To Wear uses it all the time on dark circles, but I can't figure out how to use it properly. I put it over mine and blend and it looks like I have white under my eyes.
