When it comes to Hollywood beauty favorites, there are a few products celebs flock to: La Mer’s anti-aging moisturizer, ReFa’s platinum microcurrent face roller, and the L’Oréal Paris Root Cover Up, to name a few. But it seems like none have been name-dropped quite as much as YSL’s Touche Éclat Brightening Pen.
Everyone from Meghan Markle to Victoria Beckham to Zoë Kravitz have said that the highlighting concealer is an essential in their beauty routines. So it should be no shock that Kaia Gerber recently professed her love for the product as well. In an interview with Elle UK, the model and YSL ambassador called the pen her “all-time favorite beauty product.” That’s a pretty serious claim, if you ask me.
She says the brightening pen is so light that, once applied, it doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing makeup. “Even on the days when I'm not wearing makeup I'll still put that under my eyes and it’ll make me feel like a human again.”
The dark-spot corrector can be applied to any problem area by simply clicking the pen and brushing the product directly onto your skin. Its long-lasting formula is filled with skincare goodies like hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and Moroccan calendula extract that work together to immediately brighten and even out the skin’s appearance. Meghan Markle said the product blends so well that even after a 17-hour workday when you have nothing else on, “you will still look relatively alive.” Looking relatively alive is certainly a goal whilst in quarantine, and if there’s anyone out there that we trust, it’s Meghan (and Kaia and Victoria and Zoë).
While it’s a luxury beauty product, the cost is comparable to other popular concealers. The illuminating pen retails for $35, and you can shop it in 14 different shades below.
