Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer Review

INR 600/- for 1.5 ml

The product I am reviewing today is not a new launch. This one has been around in the market for a while now however deserve a mention for the upcoming festive season.

About a year ago I was at some event and got a chance to closely watch a makeup artist do her job. I just loved how bright, polished and pearly her face looked and  was so desperately wanting to know what she had used and that’s how I was introduced to highlighting concealers .. off course the product she used was from a high end brand  but I immediately wanted to get my hands on one. That was the starting point for me to learn more about these. Around the same time or a little earlier Maybelline launched their highlighting concealer and when you are trying something new, you are not sure you want to splurge and that’s exactly why I bought the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.

Maybelline highlighting concealer, in India has only 3 shades and it could be difficult to get a match for  your skin tone. The darkest shade they have is Honey which is slightly lighter for my skin but I had no other option but to buy that one.
The concealer is in a form of a pen with twist mechanism and  has an brush attached on top for application. Now this is something I like but at the same time not too happy about either. Like because you don’t have to search for a separate brush to apply or even dirty your hands but on the flip side the brush over a period of time accumulates dirt and you cannot clean it. Also at times you keep twisting the pen and the product just doesn’t come out or at time it dispenses way more than you need if you are very careful. So packaging wise I am not a big fan if this product.

Okay talking about the product, this one is not for dark spots, acne marks or bumps on face. It provides very sheer coverage to hide all the above. This one is best suited for under eye area (again is you have very dark circles, this will not help) and I also use this on the bridge of the nose or to highlight my brow bone and sometimes around my mouth as well. The texture is not too runny or thick. Spreads and blends quite easily and the fine pearl particles gives your skin a nice soft glowy look and does not make you look cakey. Like I said earlier though the shade is slightly lighter it works perfectly well ( I don’t use this If my eyes look too tired or the darkness is high due to lack of sleep etc) in fact it gives that perfect amount of brightness to the under eye area. The staying power is also nice and lasts for about 5-6 hours post which you will need touch up. I just love how my face gets that dewy glow with this one and yes it photographs really well. So that’s a big plus for me. I have almost stopped using my heavy duty concealers since the time I have had this product. Along with my BB/CC cream I don’t need anything else on regular days.

 So for the price this product comes at, I think it does a fab job and I actually don’t feel the need to have any high end brands. I would certainly recommend you all to give this one a try.
