The Body Shop Lightening Touch vs. YSL Touché Eclat Undereye Concealer and Brightening Pen
Ingredient List Comparison: Both contain silicones, PEGs, and oil. The YSL has a much simpler ingredient list.
Main Difference: The Body Shop "Medium" shade came out a really weird freakish orange. So it's hard to test, as I have no idea whose coloring this could match (an oompa loompa's?) The YSL shade tested was "Luminous Vanilla," a much more natural shade which I judged via the computer screen as being for a medium skin tone, but is actually for a fair skin tone. The YSL comes in 12 shades, whereas the Body Shop only comes in 3.
Both applicators have a tendency to squirt out too much product. Both seem very similar in texture — a foundation-like consistency that doesn't really do much concealing. In fact, I've owned the YSL for years and I only reach for it when I want to psychologically fool myself that I can achieve perfect skin with my makeup. But honestly, it doesn't make much of a difference.
Verdict: Neither. This is a pointless, overhyped product that doesn't do much for undereye circles. The brightening effect is very subtle. As far as color-matching goes though, the Body Shop seems pretty off.
