After teasing you with a swatch of Maybelline’s Dream Lumi Touch Highlighter in Radiant, I though it was high time to give you my official two cents on this nifty bargain concealer/highlighter.
Pink, as I said in Breaking Down Beauty, is the key to knocking out dark under eye circles.
For years I’d moaned and groaned about the lack of pink-toned concealing products at bargain friendly prices. It seemed impossible to find until a Painted Ladies reader pointed out this particular product. Since then I’ve also found that NYX carries pink-toned concealers, which is another wonderful thing all around.
One thing I can tell you about Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch in Radiant is that it works best when layered on top of another concealer. Although it is a beautiful product, it’s not quite intense enough to battle dark under eye circles alone. On the left side of this photo I’m wearing Dream Lumi alone, and on the left, it’s layered on top of NYX.
A closer look: Maybelline alone.
And layered on top of NYX’s Incredible Waterproof Concealer.
The verdict? Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighter is a perfectly lovely highlighting pen that won’t break the bank, but don’t expect it to knock out dark undereye circles on its own. You find Maybelline at Ulta and all mass market retailers. .
