Perfecting imperfections: Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher

Although I’ve tried so many concealers through the year, a notable one that will always stand out to me is YSL’s Touche Eclat.

Okay, so technically Touche Eclat isn’t a concealer, but a face highlighter, but I’ve always used it to brighten and conceal my under eye area.  I actually haven’t purchased this product in years (probably since I first started blogging), but it’s forever one of those iconic cult beauty products that has stood out to me as being a phenomenal product.

Anyways, the thing that makes Touche Eclat stand out is definitely the packaging of the product. The item is applied through a pen that you twist at the bottom to dispense the product through the brush tip.  There are many other concealers and highlighters that have also used this packaging, including Charlotte Tilbury’s The Retoucher.

I’ve been using Charlotte Tilbury’s other concealer for a while now, the Magic Away Concealer, which also features a similar packaging, although instead of a brush at the tip it’s a cushion applicator.  The Retoucher (C$48), available in seven shades, this concealer is designed to cover up any flaws or imperfections in the under-eye area, as well as colour correct.

The formula is very hydrating and is designed to plump up the skin while keeping it moisturized.  It also includes black tea derivatives, which is rich in vitamins, to help fill in any grooves and smooth out the surface.  It also has special elastomer pearls which help to create smooth and flawless skin.

If you’re looking to invest in one of Charlotte Tilbury’s concealers, the main differences between this one and the Magic Away Concealer is this one is a little lighter and is more designed to colour collect and create a flawless complexion. If you have dark circles and major flaws that you want to cover up, then I would go for the Magic Away concealer instead. I have pretty good skin with no major concerns, so I find that The Retoucher is perfect for me since it brightens up the area, colour corrects, and hydrates the under-eye area,

I like this concealer since it’s an easy-to-wear formula and is perfect for my skin and the needs I have. As you can tell in the swatches, there isn’t much of a difference between the left (before) and the right (after). This concealer is also great to toss in your bag and have on hand for touch ups as well (hence the name).

Have you tried any of Charlotte Tilbury’s concealers?
