I love using makeup which makes my skin look healthy and glowing and one product I always have in my makeup bag is an illuminating concealer. I have terribly dark under eye circles which I like to cover up and I also like to highlight my cheekbones and bridge of my nose so I like to have a liquid highlighter to do this & have tried quite a few over the years. Most brands have their version of the YSL Touche Clat & I have been using the Yves Rocher take on it.
The Yves Rocher Radiant Youth Corrector Pen* comes in three shades, I have the shade 1 which is a peachy pink colour and this works well to brighten and diffuse the darkness under my eyes. It is by no means a full coverage concealer and when my eyes look particularly dark I like to use my Bobbi Brown corrector as an extra step and use this on top for a little extra coverage.
This has a lovely light creamy formula and is very easy to blend, I apply it using the brush and I like to pat it in using my finger this seems to work well. Once blended your under eye looks smooth and bright. I like that the product is light and doesn’t sink in to my fine lines and lasts well throughout the day. I would say that when I wear it during very warm days I have had to reapply it but thats quite normal and my skin is quite oily and makeup tends to slip off in the heat.
This is also nice to use on the redness around my nose and I like to take it down my nose as the light reflects off & keeps me looking refreshed, it sits well on my skin. So if your skin needs a little help to look refreshed and healthy this offering from Yves Rocher is up to that job. The luxurious gold pen style packaging looks luxurious and the brush applicator is very soft too. To get the product out you just twist the base & one twist dispenses the right amount of product for one eye. Its become a staple in my makeup bag and I’m not one for carrying makeup with me in my handbag (other than lipstick) but I have been throwing this in too & I like to reapply it when I’m looking tired. Its so easy to reapply on the go.
Let me know what you use for that little radiance boost.
