Brightening Concealers- YSL Touche Eclat vs Collection 2000 Illuminationg Touch

The iconic Yves Saint Laurent Touch Éclat has been around for years and is one of beauty's best loved products. However, I know this might be controversial, but I am really not a massive fan. I have been using Collection 2000's Illuminating Touch light diffusing concealer for as long as I can remember, from buying it as a teenager, and it has always been one of my favourite products. So when I thought it was time to indulge myself, I decided to try the Touche Éclat as I had heard rave reviews about this iconic product. However, I must admit, I was terribly disappointed considering the price tag. Now don't get me wrong, it is still a lovely product but I think there are a lot better illuminating concealers on the market for a fraction of the price! At just £4 something, the Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch concealer is still my firm favourite! I find it is a much better shade for me, gives better coverage and lasts all day. Whereas, although without doubt, much nicer packaging and looking fab in your make up bag, the Touche Éclat just doesn't match up. I know different products work for different people but I just wanted to share my thoughts which just goes to show, a high price doesn't always mean a better product!

Have you tried either of these products? What do you think?
