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?
