This concealer is great for undereye circles. I find that I like to use this underneath another concealer for better results. It makes me look more well rested. I am currently using it underneath NARS creamy concealer which is an excellent concealer combination. I would repurchase once I run out which is soon!
I don't love this, but I don't hate it either. It is not nearly as good as the MAC Prep + Prime highlighter in Radiant Rose. I find the Maybelline Lumi to appear cakey on my dry skin. I only use it when I know I won't be wearing makeup too long so that it doesn't have time to get weird on my skin.
Yup lasting power is the issue here. I was having to reapply multiple times a day and nothing (powder, primer, layering with concealers) helped. Used it up way too quickly for this reason. Otherwise good- the highlighting, pigmentation, better than YSL or Body shop ones whichbare the only other ones I've used. The YSL really irritates my skin. This also makes my skin burn a bit (not physically, but I feel like it's kind of irritated). Very good for what it is.
This is an okay product the one thing that gets to me is the lasting power....which was....not very long
But it makes an amazing highlighter :D
I believe that I can go the rest of my life not purchasing YSL's Touche Eclat and settle on this and be just fine.
First of all, I have to stress that I DO NOT have dark circles. My undereyes are blessed, unless I sincerely go 2 days without enough sleep. I got this as a cheap way to get that "triangle of light" and Kim K reverse raccoon look in order to brighten the effect on my face overall. I also got it in nude, not radiant. Nude is a light yellow that fits with my NC30 skin at the moment, being just a smidge lighter but not obviously so. I had tried the same with my MUFE concealer in #6 and it really did look like a reverse raccoon because it was wayyy too thick, cakey, and obvious, no matter how much I blended. I've never wandered to MAC for any undereye concealer, but I knew that this product does the job well for my needs.
It's very light, sheer, and easy to blend and doesn't slide around or put a spotlight on any fine lines (again, I don't have any I don't think) The only thing holding me back from 5 lips is how godawful the packaging is (click...click...clickclick OH CRAP NO!!) I actually purchased this over repurchasing Maybelline's dome shaped one (I find that one excellent for spot concealing btw). For the price and my purpose of usage, it's hard to go wrong. If you're truly looking for coverage, I'd say that it would do the job as well unless your dark circles are horrendous.
I LOVE the product but i HATE the packaging. SO ANNOYING! Maybe I just got a bad one, but it takes FOREVER for the product to come out when you click the brush, and when it does come out, it comes out in huge gobs that are way too much compared to what you actually need so use, so then you end up wasting a ton of product!! This concealer covers & brightens under your eyes really well but the mechanism is just awful. I wonder if the other pens (Touche Eclat, the dior one, etc.) are this bad mechanically as well. I wish it were just like a regular brush. The product is great, but to me it's almost not worth it because of the annoying packaging.
This isn't a bad product. It is creamy and gives a medium coverage. However, it doesn't seem to last a very long time. You don't really get much product. I do like that you can see how much concealer you have left in the clear tube. I don't like the little built in brush. I prefer to apply and blend with my fingers. All in all, it's not bad, but I think I could get more for my money.
I use this under my eyes. Goes on smooth, no caking and does lighten the area and provide light coverage. I don't have dark circles, but my skin is darker under my eyes so if you really don't need under eye coverage, but just want some brightness this will work well there. It's also not drying. I've had trouble with other under eye liquids getting a cakey dry appearance to them immediately and after waiting that I'd just wipe them off. Or they'd be too dark or too light where now I'm drawing an odd attention to that part of my face. I'm fair with a pink undertone. This is one of those twist and click dispensers with a brush. Not my fav at all, but the product is so easy to use and I haven't gone without it since purchasing that I don't care. Also, I don't wear foundation usually and this blends right it with my natural coloring.
I may or may not buy this again.
I think that Dream Lumi in Radiant is more of a highlighter than a concealer. It's just too sheer to really conceal. I find it to be more of a pink than a peach shade.
I do not like the pen/twist up/brush applicator packaging. It's awkward and delivers too much product.
It does do a fair job of lightening my dark circles. I place a couple dots under my eye and then lay my finger on my dark circle and gently rock my finger to push the concealer on, thin it out, and blend it in.
It does crease into the lines under my eyes, but a quick finger rocking flattens it out.
It lasts for about 4 hours on my oily skin.
Perfect for brightening up your undereyes. I don't like the kind of twist up packaging it has, however the product inside is worth it! It works pretty well on blemishes too!
