This is such a great DS product!! I use it under my eyes (before concealer) and it works great as corrector for my purpley brown dark circles. I was previously using the Bobbi Brown corrector but I found that it finished too quickly and sometimes it creased throughout the day. This is so much cheaper and it actually works better at brightening/correcting and does not crease. I was afraid of this looking too pink and obvious but luckily it doesn't. Instead its blends and corrects the darkness leaving me looking instantly more awake. I have and will repurchase this because it is inexpensive and works well. I hope they sell this for a long time.
I knocked down a lippie for the packaging. The clicking mechanism either takes a while to disperse the product or it disperses too much.
You should not buy this as a highlighter, in my opinion. It works pretty decently as a concealer, but does no highlighting at all.
I love this concealer/highlighter! The only other similar product I've used was the Body Shop Lightening Touch, which I wrote a review on a while ago, and said I liked. But I like Dream Lumi much more!
This is a highlighting concealer. It has light to medium concealing properties but it highlights and brightens without screaming "Look at me! I'm wearing a highligher!" It makes my skin look naturally healthy and glowy.
I use this under my eyes in combination with a regular concealer (Elizabeth Arden Ceramide). I also use it on my brow bone and in between my eyebrows. I like it because it camouflages any little hairs that are starting to regrow and it also highlights the area. I also use it on the sides of my mouth and on my cheeks for a brightening effect. On my neutral makeup days, I've used it on my lids for a natural look too.
The packaging is okay. I use the brush to swipe on product but I use my fingers to blend. I can't use the brush to blend because it will keep adding more product. The stick is sort of deceiving too. It looks like you're going to get a while stick of concealer but it's only half of the stick.
I can't remember how much I paid but I think it was around $10-12 (Canadian). That kind of expensive for a drug store product (to me) but it is a really good quality for a drug store.
I'm now interested in trying other things in the Maybelline "Dream" line because I've had good results with this product.
I purchased this product due to the rave review by YouTube beauty guru MissGlamorazzi. I already use a somewhat decent concealer, so I was much more interested in how good of a highlighter this would be. I was afraid that this shade, Radiant, would be too light for my skin (medium-olive), but after reading reviews here I decided to give it a go anyway.
Wow! This product has surpassed my expectations! I just used it for the first time and am so impressed by both its highlighting ability AND its concealing ability! I have horrible dark circles and since other folks with this problem have said that this product doesn't conceal well, I was expecting just that. But, no, it does a great job as an under eye concealer ON TOP of my first under eye concealer, and also works great on top of the nose and around the nose, where any redness occurs. It highlights that key area between eye and cheek perfectly.
While others have been less impressed with the packaging, I have to say that I really like it. It allows me to dab a few dots around the area I want to conceal, and then I can blend in with my finger or brush. I like that it is a "long tool" because it allows for more precision.
I've only used this product once...if my opinion changes, I'll edit this review.
This is straight up pink. lol. Unfortunately my undereye area is already purple/red so this didn't help anything
Definitely brightening, but if you have any dry skin or creasing/lines, this will crease on you :(
Butm out of all concealers, this one works the best for me. EVER single concealer creases on me, so beside that in this product, it's great.
Price: 3 (~$9 CAN)
Packaging: 2 (hate it)
Buy again: yes
I have a love-hate relationship with this product. The product itself, I love. The packaging, not so much. I have mild-moderate dark circles because I don't sleep much, and this brightening concealer makes a huge difference in my morning routine.
I was worried that the colour of this would be too light -- I am about NC30 with olive tones. The colour of this concealer is a light nude-pink with a tiny amount of shimmer. I apply to the inner corner of my eyes close to the bridge of my nose and under the dark circles, blending up to my lower lash lines with my ring finger. It blends in seamlessly, instantly brightening the darkness. I don't even need to add any other concealers on top!
The slight shimmer helps with brightening and doesn't look like I sprinkled fairy dust on my skin. Lasts all day when set with a powder.
I really hate the packaging. The brush-tip application is just unhygienic; I cringe every time I open it. And, sometimes, the twisting clicker thing doesn't dispense product; so I tap the product (brush tip down) on my dresser a few times, and then too much product comes out. Now, I just store my concealer on its end so that the brush tip is down (I hope that gravity will help with dispensing). If they changed the packaging, I would give this product a 5.
I would buy this again!
This is the best product I have purchased in a while. It is a milky nude/pink, somewhat opaque color that really performs. I love it under my eyes, even on its own & it covers my sun spot on my cheekbone like nothing else I have tried. It layers nicely over concealor & foundation too. I don't mind the clicky pen to be honest, it gives precise application & isn't bulky. The price is about $7.50 for .05floz, I will definately repurchase! continued >>
Radiant has become my go to "corrector" as it has peachy pink undertones. After applying this product I apply a little concealer over top and I'm ready for the day. By adding this product to my everyday face routine I have noticed a significant improvement in camouflaging my dark purple-blueish under eye bags and circles. Radiant's formula is very smooth, pigmented, blendable, and sets to a slightly satin-matte finish. Doesn't budged or crease during the day either. LOVE IT!! The only con is the attached brush, personally I hate the concept and find it messy and unhygienic. I bypass the whole irritation by sniping the bristles off before using it.
really impressed by this. I'm pretty fair with a slight tan and I think I got the third color which was still a little light but really hid my dark circles - which are really hard to hide. This was the first drugstore concealer that actually concealed flawlessly bc it was so layerable without getting cakey. so easily buildible! I expected this to be more of a luminizer than a concealer but it's truly the perfect blend of both. I blended this all the way out from under my eye to my cheek bones and it gave me a nice glow which made my bronzer pop. "The glow" is subtle and not sparkly just glowy "lit from with in" almost. As a make-up artist I was impressed and this could definately be something to have in my kit over the expensive touch eclat or dior skinflash.
