Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

When you have dark circles under your eyes, you look like you never have enough sleep.

Unfortunately, I am one of those. For some reason, my eyes look extra tired and puffy when I have a good night sleep. How weird is that?

Heard so many good reviews about the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer. Decided to give it a try.


I got it in the shade honey


It comes in a tube with a brush applicator. If you have used the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind eraser dark circles concealer, it is very similar. You need to twist the bottom to control the product coming out. You don't need to twist it every time you apply. I usually twist it and it has enough for a few applications.

Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting concealer is a combination of highlighter and a concealer. You apply it by brushing v-shapes underneath your eyes to get the highlighting effect underneath eyes and on the cheekbones. I use this together with the Instant age rewind eraser concealer. 

I have only used this for the past week. Not overly impressed as I expect this product will do. I find it quite cakey after application and typically the underneath the eye area, it tends to be dry and when this is cakey, your fine lines will show up.

Not sure if I apply it incorrectly or maybe apply it too much, making this cakey on my eye area. Also, I think I got this in a wrong shade. I thought I would get the shade close to my concealer so they will blend in well. So the shade honey may be too dark for me. I went out to get another shade, Radiant, which is a lighter with a pinkish tone. Maybe as a highlighter, you need to get a shade much lighter to get that illuminating effect. Will keep you posted after I try out my new shade. 

Have you tried this and what are your thoughts?

    1. I would go for a shade lighter than your regular concealer to get the highlight effect. Hope you will like it!

  5. I am eternally on the lookout for a good concealer - I usually have a ton of trouble with the kinds that come in tubes like this because I usually end up with way too much on.

    What I've been using (not perfect, but the best options for me so far) have been the Bare Escentuals (sp?) loose concealer powder and the Cover Girl/Olay cream concealer. They individually work well enough, but I still need something better!

    1. Thanks for the recommendation. I haven't used any loose concealer powder before. Will look into it next time I'm in Sephora.
