It's in the eyes

By Sophie Gridley


There’s always a lot of testing happening on the beauty desk. Not only are we constantly trying things ourselves for our Tried and Tested page in the magazine, the product reviews on this site and for our own, er, research purposes, but we also dole out bits and bobs to other members of Team ELLE, to make sure we get a real cross-section of opinion. This week we’ve been testing eye creams – with varying results. After all, one woman’s dream cream is not quite the next woman’s cup of tea.


But while we are champions of buying the best skincare you can afford, and are devoted to looking after our skin, we love a quick fix too. So if you’re still on the lookout for a truly great eye cream you’ll have to wait for the results of our testing. If you simply can’t wait for a good recommendation allow us to introduce you to Touche Veloutee, by By Terry. It’s the Rolls Royce of under-eye brightening concealers and a must in the make-up bag of many an ELLE staffer, especially during the party season. Its massive brightening effect is virtually undetectable and its shimmer quota is zero – which we love – making it triple tested and approved.
