YSL Touche Eclat Concealer vs MAC Prep & Prime

These two products have been raved about so much and from face value they seem so similar. So I wanted to write a post comparing the two to see if I have a preference and which one I would repurchase.

First thing I want to mention is the amount of product that you get. In the YSL Touché Éclat Highlighter you only get 2.5ml, which is a tiny amount. In the MAC Prep & Prime you get 3.6ml. I know it isn’t a lot more but it is a lot in comparison to the 2.5 you get with the YSL.

Another difference is how the product is dispensed. With the YSL you press the button on the end. When in a makeup bag, this can be a little messy and when I have travelled with this it has clicked it and wasted product. The MAC Prep and Prime you twist and then it is pushed up. With the YSL you can’t control how much comes up through one pump, and you can with the MAC.

Then onto consistency… the YSL Touché Éclat has a really thin consistency. It wasn’t enough to cover the darkness under my eyes, and I don’t have much darkness. But it is a nice highlighter because it reflects the light and it is sheer. The MAC is a much thicker consistency, and covers my darkness really well. I would only use this under my eyes as a concealer rather than a highlighter.

With regards of packaging I think the YSL is a winner. It is nice gold packaging and really sleek, it just feels like a more expensive product when you are holding it. The MAC Prep & Prime is just the standard black packaging; it is nice but not anything in comparison to the Touché Éclat.

Last up is price. The YSL Touch Éclat here in the UK is approx. £25, not bad for the quality of the product but for the quantity it is quite poor for only 2.5ml. The MAC Prep & Prime is £19 on the MAC website, reasonable I think for the quality and quantity that you receive.

Overall… As stunning as the YSL Touché Éclat is I cannot personally see myself repurchasing it because I found the MAC to do the same job but you receive more product and it is cheaper. Also, the MAC offers more coverage which is something that I need.

I would love to hear from you so please leave any comments below and I will get back to you. Also I will leave a link down below to where you can find these two items...
