Your bank balance will thank you.

Last Updated on May 26, 2023

I’ve found so many great dupes for YSL’s Touche Eclat, so if you’re looking to save some pennies, consider making one of these your next make up purchase.

Make up and beauty products like YSL’s Touche Eclat rarely come up. The iconic highlighter has a cult following, including A-listers like Zoe Kravitz, Victoria Beckham and even Meghan Markle.

In a recent interview with Vogue, the international makeup artist for Yves Saint Laurent Lloyd Simmonds shared details about the exciting challenge of creating the next iconic product to follow in the footsteps of Touche Éclat.

“The thing is, there are so many competitors now – it’s hard to keep up when companies like MAC have such vast ranges” he said. “To find a new, iconic product – like Touche Eclat – there will need to be new scientific discoveries. 

“Blue is always blue, it’s how it’s delivered. I think new textures are the way forward, and that’s what I’m focusing on at YSL.”

There’s no denying that YSL’s product is at the top of its game, but if you’re not willing to splash out almost £30 on it, there are plenty of cheaper alternatives you can try out first.

From L’Oreal to ALDI, here are the best of the bunch. And if you like these, check out our edits of dupes for Glossier, Dior, Charlotte Tilbury and Benefit next.
