Empties #15: YSL Touche Eclat #3, Wet N Wild Bronzer in Ticket To Brazil, Collection Extreme Mascara in Black

I'm slowly working my way through all my empties, so sorry (not sorry) if all these posts are getting boring!


YSL Touche Eclat in #3


Touche Eclat isn't new in the beauty world - it's one of the most famed and hyped highlighter pens since sliced bread. I'm pretty sure this was one of the first 'clickable pen' products that came out! I remember back in the day when my mum used it there was only one shade and now they've branched out to 4 or 5 (??? correct me if I'm wrong!) I decided to treat myself and see what all the hype was about. This product shouldn't be confused as a concealer - it's a highlighter pen. I personally used this as a highlighter for under my eyes, my nose and tip of my chin. It's a really nice product with light coverage and the handy pen applicator makes everything effortless. There's lots of little bristles in the brush so it doesn't feel horrible and gammy when you've been using the product for a while. Overall, I think this product isn't worth the hype - yeah it's nice but I wouldn't shell out the £20+ for this when I feel there are similar products out there for half the price.
I would give this a 3/5

Wet N Wild Bronzer in Ticket To Brazil

Wet N Wild are US high street/ drug store brand that offer some really good low budget products. I picked up this giant bronzer at a US army base (my mum has friends who live on the base and we're lucky enough to visit sometimes!) This bronzer is not only huge for the small price (around $5 from what I recall!) but a really lovely product. It's a light coverage shimmery bronzer without being super glittery or over pigmented. Shade wise, it gives me a really nice wash of bronze colour to light up my skin tone a little and make me look a little less dull. It also helps if I've been a numpty and bought a foundation which might be a little too pale for as this evens out my complexion.
I would give this bronzer a 4/5

Collection Extreme Mascara in Black


As you all probably know I'm a big fan of Collection's mascaras. They're cheap and cheerful and really good products! This particular mascara comes in lots of bright shades which I love! I opted for a black one as I wanted to see if I liked it on my lashes. The brush looked a little stiff and chubby but it does a really good job of fanning out my lashes and adding lots of volume. It's a super dark black which coats my lashes really well too!
Overall I'd give this a 4/5

Have you tried any of these products before?
