Dupe - By Terry Touche Veloutée + Bourjois CC Eye Cream

Today I bring to you a brand new dupe for the By Terry Touche Veloutée in the form of the new Bourjois CC Eye Cream (see review: here).


The By Terry Touche Veloutée (review: here) is a luxurious cult classic. It is a creamy concealer which covers, lifts and awakens the eyes. It doesn't have any shimmery, light-reflective particles but it does brighten the eye area. What makes the Touche Veloutée stand out is the finish, it doesn't stay creamy under the eyes (as that is usually what causes creasing), it sets down into a satin skin-like finish so it really stays put and when patted in around the eye area, can almost become undetectable. However at £35 it is a very overpriced concealer, even if it is beautiful... but there is now a £7.99 version, provided to us from Bourjois. The CC Eye Cream has the same coverage and brightening properties as the Touche Veloutée but is almost identical in formula as they are both creamy on application but set down to a satin, slightly powdery finish. The only difference is that the CC Eye Cream is slightly more powdery. But both these products apply and last well on the skin whilst concealing without caking, the only difference being £27, and that's a pretty big difference.

So if you have always wanted to try the Touche Veloutée or are in need of a re-purchase, 
save your pennies and try the Bourjois option!
