Packaging:- Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi Concealer comes in a sleek pen type packaging with a brush applicator on one side. I am really not a fan of the pen packagings because it hard to control the amount dispensed and overtime the brush will get dirty and accumulate germs. The packaging is see through, so I can actually see the amount of product left in the tube. To get product out of the pen I need to twist the bottom, for the first time it takes like 20 twists.. (yeah that much) but further just 2-3 twists would be enough but be careful as once the product is out on brush, it can’t be made go back into the tube.. so wastage!
My experience with Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi Highlighting Concealer:-
Shade: I got this Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi Highlighting Concealer in the shade Honey, the darkest of all the 3 shades available in India. It is medium beige shade with micro fine pearly shimmers which are barely visible post application but adds a lovely natural shine to the skin.
Formula: The concealer has a medium-thin texture which applies easily with brush applicator. Due to its thin texture it blends quickly into the skin with minimum effort. I usually using finger tips to blend it in but any of the concealer brush can do the job as well.
Coverage: The coverage of the concealer is light-medium which is just enough to cover any light pigmentation under the eyes. The formula has an illuminating effect on the skin so I would not recommend it for spot concealing rather it can double up as cream highlighter, you can opt for lighter shades for highlighting purpose.
Finish: The concealer has a lovely dewy finish which my dry skin loves. It is best to set it with a powder when used under the eyes to avoid creasing. The formula even if heavily applied doesn’t look cakey or fill in the lines. In summers, oily skin might not like it as much as my dry skin do but in winters it makes up a lovely skin brightener for both the skin types.
Staying Power: I was super impressed with the long lasting abilities of this concealer. I applied it in the morning 9 am and when I removed my eye makeup at 7 pm the concealer was still there.
