Review: Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer


Do you ever have a day when you just have the urge to shop? You don't think you do, until you unknowingly stop into a store to innocently pick up a necessity, and before you know it you have a full cart on total non-necessities? I had a day like that a few weeks ago. Luckily, this little gem of a concealer was one of my hauls.







As you can see this concealer is in a twist up, pen style, tube. The concealer then dispenses from a brush tip. You know the drill. Typically these take forever to get started, and this one was no different. I totally thought that I got a dud, as it took forever to get anything to come out. When it finally did, I was a bit, well, skeptical that this would be any good. I figured it would either be way too shimmery or way too thin and not cover anything. I was wrong. I love this concealer!


I picked up the shade 'Nude' which was the second lightest shade in the display. As you can see there is a very faint shimmer (squint and lean... do you see it?) I hate when products are labeled as being 'illuminating' and end up being glitter bombs. That is not an issue here. The concealer is thin in texture, but a little bit goes a long way and erases dark under eye issues with ease.

no concealer (eek... )

I find that this concealer stays put quite well, largely in part to the fact that it is thin and you can get away with so little. It brightens beautifully and at $10 is a major steal. I have deep set eyes and my under eye area tends to recede (as oppose to being puffy) so anything to brighten the area is my best bet at not looking tired. I am totally in love with this concealer! The DreamLumi Foundation wasn't out yet when I picked up the concealer, but if it's as great I'll be sure to give it a try as well. Have you tried this concealer or anything from the DreamLumi line? What did you think?
