Product Spotlight: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

5 Comments

Are you in love with Yves Saint Laurent’s TOUCHE ÉCLAT ? Or is it on your wishlist? Well good news for you – the Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer pen is just as good and 1/5 the price!!

The Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer pen retails for around $7.99 USD, depending on where you pick it up, and that compared to the YSL Touche Eclat at $40 USD is a steal.

Both products are highlighting/brightening concealers that come in a pen form, with the product itself dispensing through the brush end.

So before going onto what I love about the Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer pen, I will say that I do not own the YSL Touche Eclat pen – simply due to the cost; though I have tested it out many times, actually about every time I pass a YSL counter. It was on my wishlist, but after coming across the Maybelline version, well – I’ll be spending that $40 elsewhere.

 Now onto the good points:

  • Economical at $7.99 USD
  • The highlighting concealer really does brighten up the areas of the face you apply it to
  • Gives quite good coverage
  • A little product goes a long way
  • Perfect for touching up during a long day
  • Slim, fits in your handbag, clutch or pocket = travel friendly!
  • Feels light on the skin
  • Doesn’t get cakey, with minimal to no creasing
  • Looks like good skin, not make-up
  • Bonus: Seems to photograph very well

What Maybelline says: Gel-based formula diffuses light. Illuminates as it conceals.

The only downfall I really see in this product is that it only comes in 6 shades at this point. This type of thing is typical for drugstore brands, but I think this product is going to be well loved, so hopefully Maybelline will be coming out with a larger range of shades.

I picked up the shade Nude 330, which is the 3rd shade in the range (310 to 360). Check out the swatches below:

  3. where can i get it from banglore

    • From what I have found out, Maybelline products are available in all big malls across Bangalore – (Shoppers Stop, LifeStyle, Pantaloons, Bangalore Central) – they should all have Maybelline beauty counters. I’m not sure if this specific product has been released there yet, if it hasn’t you’ll want to try online. Hope this helps 🙂
