Having used numerous mascaras from the YVES Saint Laurent collection in various different shades from the highly popular black to burgundy, I just knew this set was for me!! I love how these sets include everything you need from eye skin care to cosmetics. The Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat No.1 Superb Eyes Setmakes the perfect gift for someone special, or as a little treat for yourself 🙂
This set comes beautifully packed with each product stored in a black moulded case to keep the products perfectly displayed if you decide to keep them in the kit, but I removed everything straight away and popped everything into my Ted Baker Make-Up Bag, as I find this much easier to find everything in the morning, especially if you’re in a hurry!!
Being familiar with the YVES Saint Laurent mascara collection, I was eager to try a few other products from the makeup line, including the eyeliners and most popular of all the Touche Eclat Luminous Radiance!! You even receive a mini version of the water proof eye pencil in Black Ink.
Long Lasting Waterproof Eye Pencil in Black Ink – Lasts for 16 hours once applied and comes in a gorgeously creamy consistency that’s easy to apply to the waterline and the eyelids, making this a great choice for smokey eyes or if you prefer thicker eyeliner below the lids for a more dramatic effect. I find this really easy to apply and the colour is very pigmented and rich, making your eyes really pop, once applied to the water line of your eyes. Another great thing about this eyeliner is the fact it comes in a waterproof formula, making it last even longer during warm summer days, swimming or if you’re hitting the beach!!
Volume Effect Faux Cils in High-Density Black Mascara – This has been an award winner and rightly so! I have been using this constantly and can’t seem to put it down as it gives such beautiful volume and really curls the lashes nicely with great hold that lasts all day!! This mascara comes with a unique coating of pro-vitamin B5 and Aloe Vera to really fix those curves in place, and give incredible lift/volume. I find this lasts the whole day without losing shape or volume, making it great for summer especially when the warmer weather kicks in. The formula is very pigmented and the right consistency, making it not dry or greasy once applied to the lashes!!
Touch Eclat in No.1 Luminous Radiance – This has to be the best highlighter I have tried especially for under eyes!! I love how this instantly banishes tiredness and you can apply it in lots of different ways by using it as a highlighter, concealer and illuminator. After applying this I instantly notice the huge benefits it gives and the creamy formula conceals really well, either by using the applicator brush or gently blending the product in with your finger tips. This must have product helps fight signs of fatigue, fine lines, dark circles and leaves your skin looking luminous and glowing. I find the price for this highlighter very reasonable considering the results I have had and it really does give a healthy glow to the skin and conceals problem areas perfectly especially the under eye area 🙂 I will be looking to get this a shade lighter next time in No.2, but shade No.1 is the perfect match for my pale complexion and normal skin tones.
Forever Youth Liberator Eye Serum – You will not get instant results with this product but over time you should begin to notice a huge difference 🙂 I have been using this on and off and notice how awake it makes my eyes look and I also love the light texture and find it very cooling when applied to the under eye area. Over time I think this will work wonders and should start to prolong wrinkles and improve the surface of the skin as the under eye area can be very delicate, and begins to age more easily. I really want to get the full version of this so I can get a good idea of how well it works over time, as the mini tube you receive in this kit comes with a very small amount.
Top Secrets Eye Make-Up Remover – This instantly melts away makeup even waterproof eyeliners/mascaras, and I am really pleased with the results and currently contemplating buying the full version. The price can be off putting, but for the results, I am sure I can justify this spend as more of an investment remover as it does come in handy and more of an essential, especially if you wear mascara or eye liner daily!! Another thing I never realised when using this mascara is that it contains natural ingredients from Chamomile to Pro-Vitamin B5 and these basically help to strengthen the lashes and sooth, making this even more appealing, especially for those with more sensitive eyes.
