Disappointing Products #2 | Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

Quite often I find myself enabled by the beauty blogosphere, especially when a product is harped on about for a long time.  Usually, I fall in love with the products and I hardly ever regret purchasing them, but sometimes there's a runt in the litter.  I picked up the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer (I swear product names are getting longer) after hearing the likes of FleurDeForce and MissGlamorazzi raving about it.  I bought the lightest shade Ivory, as I'm quite fair and the lightest shades are usually perfect.  After the first use I was left totally disappointed. 

This product is supposed to be a bit like the much loved YSL Touche Eclat in that it's a highlighting concealer.  When I first applied the product I noticed that the brush was extremely hard and dragged on the skin, not ideal around the delicate eye area.  The sound thing I noticed was the colour.  The concealer is very yellow and left my under eye area looking slightly jaundiced, instead of bright and healthy looking.  I also found that it didn't have a lot of highlight to it, unlike the Touche Eclat or Collection's Illuminating Touch Concealer.  

Overall I was left thoroughly disappointed with this product.  The only upside is that it's only £6.99, so it hasn't exactly left me majorly out of pocket.  I know that so many of you love this concealer but for me it just didn't do anything.  Perhaps I picked up a duff tube, who knows! 

What's you're favourite highlighting concealer?


  1. I totally agree! I also bought the lightest colour as I wanted to use it as part of my highlighting and contouring routine for highlight under the eyes. The lightest shade is, in no way, light. It was much darker than my other "light" concealers and very yellow! It was super hyped but doesn't work for me either! X x


You have no idea how much each of your comments means. Keep 'um coming lovelies. N xox
