Lets be honest here, I bought the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch highlighting concealer for the first time in 2013, tried it and completely forgot about it. Over a year ago when I was cleaning out my makeup collection I decided to try out the product I had so quickly criticised and ended up wondering why I had given up on it so easily! Now it has become my favourite under eye concealer.
I usually have quite a hard time finding a good concealer – or foundation – in the drugstore as my skin is on the paler side and has
really yellow undertones. The perfect foundation shades for me are Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in 52 Vanilla and NARS Sheer Glow in Ceylan. For this concealer I use the shade 01 Ivory under my eyes and it’s the perfect shade for me. Just a tad bit lighter than my skin which is exactly what I want as it really brightens up the area even more.
The concealer is really easy to blend (I like to use a damp Beauty Blender), feels lightweight and has medium to almost full coverage so it covers dark circles well. As you can see on the picture above, you can barely see the veins on my wrist where I’ve blended the concealer. The consistency is quite creamy so it can set into fine lines easily but if you set it with a powder it stays put all day long.
The applicator in this concealer is a small brush which I actually really enjoy. Most of my other concealers have a doe foot applicator but I find the brush better for the under eye area. The concealer is really easy to blend (I like to use a damp Beauty Blender), feels lightweight and has medium coverage. It’s quite creamy so it can set into fine lines easily but if you set it with a powder it stays put all day long.
There’s one thing that I’d like to change about this concealer and it’s the amount of product you get. For me, the amount lasts for quite a long time but if you like to use a lot of concealer under the eyes like some do and use it every day it might be gone in about two weeks. Overall I think this is an amazing concealer if you’re looking for something yellow toned that brightens up the under eye area and has quite a lot of coverage.
Have you tried this concealer? What do you think about it? What products do you like to use for your under eyes/dark circles?
