By Terry Touche Veloutee Highlighting Concealer

In the world of modern day make up, Terry De Gunzburg has a lot to be thanked for - after all, we're sure most of you swear by her most iconic cosmetic creation: the international best selling Touche Eclat. Taking over 3 years to gain approval from the team at YSL, De Gunzburg's idea was repeatedly branded "crazy" due to the product's consistency fitting neither that of a concealer or foundation. It was only when she was finally promoted to International Marketing Director that she was able to back the scheme and present the world with make up via a click pen - a concept that had yet to be done. Given no advertising budget, De Gunzburg took it upon herself to travel the globe showing beauty journalists her groundbreaking creation. And as our make up bags now know, the rest is history...

It's because of this astonishing story that we can say - hand on heart - that De Gunzburg's very own take on her 1992 wonder product is even better than the original. Using soft focus pigments, Touche Veloutee is a nourishing botanical affair that both plumps and lifts the under eye. It's light reflecting particles create true radiance and allow even the most sleepy of complexions to be soothed and awakened. Suitable for use on all areas of the face, we swear by this product for instant, flawless pick-me-ups.

Containing a massive 6.5ml of product (Touche Eclat holds 2.5ml for an rrp of £24), this sleek silver pen will literally last you months of daily use. Fitted with a sturdy attached brush, it's large size allows the entire under eye to be concealed with just one swish, making application both simple and speedy. Available in 3 shades (Porcelain, Cream & Beige), the texture is luxuriously creamy, smooth when dried, and completely seamless to blend.

Since the age of 14 we've sworn by Touche Eclat, yet since this came into our lives that seductive golden pen hasn't tempted us once. Offering superb coverage, unbeatable radiance and a delicious scent - Ms De Gunzburg is certainly a miracle worker when it comes to the under eyes. If you love your YSL pen then definitely check this out. After all, who can rival it better than the woman who created it?

By Terry Touche Veloutee is available from selected retailers worldwide and for £29.

how bad are your dark circles? mine's pretty bad and i've been looking for a good concealer (mac studio finish doesn't do it for me). i've been intrigued with the touche eclat, do you prefer that over the touche veloutee?

@Dani Touche Eclat and Touche Veloutee are more highlighting concealers than coverage concealers. If you have quite heavy dark circles the best product we've found is Bobbi Brown's creamy concealer (£16.50). However, if you have extremely pigmented under eyes and want even more coverage, then get a Bobbi Brown Corrector (£16.50) to sit underneath the concealer. Twinned together they really do block out practically all under eye darkness. We've gone through 3 of each in the last few years! If there's a BB stand near you then definitely check them out.

This looks lovely, have always avoided under eye stuff on the basis that if it is even slightly dry it is going to highlight the general crepey'ness (is that a word) of my under eye area but this looks worth a try. Would love to see a photo of one eye with and one without as a comparison, if poss!

If I used another concealer under the Touche Veloutee for extra coverage, do you think that the first concealer would be rubbed away? I was wondering this because the concealer I use doesn't really set, and do you think that that would look cakey?

@Samantha: If you apply the Touche Veloutee using a patting motion as oppose to a rubbing motion, then your initial concealer should stay put. We've never experienced a caking effect with this product when layered over other creamy concealers.
