Have I mentioned how much I love receiving free makeup in the mail? Perks of blogging, I tell ya. Before I get started on the review I should mention that if you want to receive free voxboxes in the mail, all you have to do is sign up through Influenster and connect your Facebook account.
Recently I got another YSL voxbox in the mail which contains the new Touche Eclat Neutralizer in Violet. Depending on what results you got from the survey, influencers either received the orange, green, or violet. The Touche Eclat Neutralizers are color correctors which are supposed to improve your complexion by getting rid of redness, discoloration, and brighten your skin. Honestly, the timing couldn't have been better since it's a new semester and I'm still adjusting to a new sleep schedule (ya know sleeping at normal hours instead of being up until 3am watching Netflix haha) and have dark circles under my eyes to prove it.
The Violet one that I received acts as a brightener for dull, yellow skin (or as I like to call it winter skin) and can be used all over the face. I decided to test it out under my eyes and used my everyday concealer as well to see if it would make a difference together or if I should just stick to only using concealer.
Here's the before:
The first thing that I loved about this product is the application stick which makes it easy to apply and the brush feels soft on your skin so it's not pulling delicate areas such as around your eyes.
Here's the after with concealer on top:
I noticed a huge difference when it comes to brightness and it even seemed to make my skin look matte which I didn't even know that I had a problem with before! It seems that my eyes get a little oily throughout the day. I also love how it's great for layering and doesn't feel heavy so you can use it all over.
Overall, I'm highly impressed with this brand, again and have been reaching for it every morning ever since I received it. It's one of those go-to products that's perfect for the winter since it helps you to look wide awake and less like a zombie (or is that just me?). Plus the packaging is so pretty! Yes I'm one of those people that gets suckered into buying stuff because they look pretty haha. But seriously, it's worth a try and YSL has so many great products that are worth investing in and this is one of them.
Thanks for reading,
