As a daily user of the Touche Éclat pen, I had crazy high expectations for the new Touche Éclat foundation. They were all met, and then some.
I have super freckle face (not quite Lindsay Lohan, but not far off. Okay, maybe more Julianne Moore, which is much, much better), so a foundation that’s too cakey does weird things to my skin tone: it ends up with an unsightly grey undertone. So I always look for sheer foundations that let the freckles “breathe.” Touche Éclat is light and sheer, but has buildable coverage, in case you need a little more for certain occasions.
Most illuminating foundations have some kind of a pearly finish (in some cases, actual pearls), but Touche Éclat opted for golden pigments that reflect light and define your facial contours (you’ll still need your pen to highlight). With 22 shades, it was easy finding the right one, which hasn’t always been easy for me (with freckles). Bonus: even though it doesn’t say so on the package, Le Teint Touche Éclat is powered with SPF 19, which is all really one needs in winter time.
P.S. Did you know that one Touche Éclat pen is sold every 10 seconds?
