Drugstore Finds: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch

Purchased by me

I finished off my beloved IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer (seriously love that concealer!). So, I needed a new one, but I was wanting to change it up and try one from the drugstore. I looked at a couple different concealers and finally decided on one.

For my all-over concealer, I normally use Clinique's Line Smoothing Concealer. It's truly awesome, but it's not bright enough for my under-eye region. I liked how the Bye-Bye Under Eye really illuminated the area. It made me look more awake and fresh. I wanted a concealer that would give me the same effect. I picked out the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.

About the concealer

Price: $7.99 (price varies)
Available in 6 shades

A concealer that illuminates while concealing.

My observations

I like that it's easy to apply. You twist the bottom until the product comes up into the brush and then swipe it on. After I apply, I blend it out with my finger.

It isn't as thick as my Bye Bye Under Eye. It has a thin, light consistency. It's brightening, but it's the wrong shade for me; I have the color 'Buff'. I find it to be too pink-toned. I need it to be more on the yellow side. The coverage isn't amazing, but it still works. For me, it seems like thicker concealers do a better job at hiding imperfections and lasting longer.

So will I repurchase? I don't think so. I don't mind this concealer, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. If I do buy it again, I'll have to try a different shade. I do like the price though; it's very affordable.

Have you tried this concealer? If not, what is your favorite drugstore concealer for under the eyes?
