Yves Saint Laurent Touche Brilliance and Victoria's Very Sexy Makeup Brilliant Lip Shine

Lookalike Products: Clickable Brilliant Shine Lip Glosses

One of my current beauty obsessions is Yves Saint Laurent Touche Brilliance. It's a sheer, thin-textured, sweet-smelling lip gloss that comes in a clickable pen, and it contains little specs of glitter that create the most incredible amount of shine. To my surprise, I saw an almost identical version created by Victoria's Secret.


Although the Victoria's Secret tube is slightly fatter even though it contains .03 oz. less product (hmmm, I guess that means there's more air inside) I'm willing to bet that if you showed these to a nonbeauty junkie they wouldn't be able to tell them apart.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Brilliance Victoria's Secret Brilliant Lip Shine Advantage?
Texture Has a thin, smooth texture without any stickiness or tackiness. Also has a smooth, sticky-free texture, but is slightly creamier. Victoria's Secret (although it's very close). Because of the creaminess, you don't feel the glitter on your lips quite as much.
Brilliance
The gloss picks up more colors when it hits the light.

The glitter is more dispersed so it's shiny, but not as iridescent.
Yves Saint Laurent. The glitter is more finely milled, so the shine is brighter.
Fragrance Has more of a clean, flowery fragrance. Has a vague, sweet marshmallow-like scent. Yves Saint Laurent. It contains their signature fragrance, which gets me every time.
Color Options 13 different shades. Six different shades. Yves Saint Laurent has more than double the amount of color options to choose from.
Price $29 $12 Victoria's Secret by 17 bucks.
