I purchased this concealer a month ago, and now it's empty, I was surprised as I don't wear it daily !! looked at the size of it and here is the SHOCK!!!!!! THIS CONCEALER CAPACITY IS ONLY 1.5 ml !!!!!!!!!!!!!! that means it costs more than buying the DIOR concealer that I already had, and lasted for ages !!! (DIOR concealer's capacity is 10 ml !!!!!!! for $30 !!!!!! ) and the quality of the DIOR C. is way better and nicer than the L'Oreal one. I really though I'm saving money when I purchased this concealer !!
its always good to read!!!!
save your money and AVOID this product!

This does not provide much coverage for under eye circles. It might give a little brightening if that's all you are looking for but if you really have circles to conceal this doesn't do a very good job. Still looking for my HG under eye concealer. Also I don't like the twist up pen type application. I prefer a tube with my own concealer brush. Won't buy twice.

This is a wonderful brightening under-eye concealer! It is on the thinner side, but builds up nicely. I apply it with the brush, then pat to blend. I HATE the packaging though, click pens are so wasteful and annoying! Were it not for that I'd rate this a 5.

Had high hopes for this product, but this was a disappointment. I think it's a bit expensive for drugstore and for it's quality. The packaging is terrible. The tube doesn't distribute the highlighter evenly as you're twisting and youll either get nothing or a ton of product at once. Also, I feel like this made me look really ashy. Bad product and I wouldn't recommend.

I love this product, the packaging looks really expensive and the quality is excellent! Apparently this is a hightlighter but I use it under my eyes and it takes away the dark circles and gives me a dewy glow!

I like the concealer but this package is a pain in the butt!
It's a guessing game as to how much product you are going to get, sometimes one click shoots out a lot of product, sometimes you can click it several times and get nothing.
The brush doesn't work as an applicator, I wish it just came in a tube.
The product itself works pretty well on my under-eye circles as well as any blemishes. I use a knock off beauty blender to apply it, rather than the brush and it works.
For the money though, there are concealers that I like better that are cheaper, so I'd give this a pass next time.

Although the tube does actually say "concealer," this is more of a brightening addition to your regular concealer, not a replacement for it.
I use this product AFTER I put on my regular undereye concealer (which, btw, is MAC NC25 and I bought this L'oreal product in Medium.) The concealer hides the actual dark circles from lack of sleep (I'm a college student) and the Magic Lumi brightens the spots that my bone structure casts shadows on, which is the main thing I'm trying to cover up. My eyes definitely look brighter, I look more awake and well-rested for sure, which is why I would recommend this. However, it doesn't last very long. I put this on around 9 AM and when I looked in the mirror at 2 it was time to reapply.
The packaging on this product is horrible. It comes in a pen with a built-in brush, and you have to twist the base of the pen to dispense product onto the brush. You never know how many twists you'll need to get enough of the product out, so you either end up with way too much or not enough. Most of it ends up drying on the brush. There's not a whole lot of concealer in the pen to begin with, so I feel like a lot of it is going to waste. I wish L'Oreal would put this in a small bottle or even a squeeze tube--something to give users more control over how much of the product they use. If the packaging were changed, I'd probably rate this much higher.
I said I will repurchase because I got this at a great price with coupons. It normally retails for around $13 at drug stores, which is too much for this IMO. I would pay $13 if the packaging were better, but as it is, this is too much of a hassle and too much of the product is going to waste to warrant that much money on a drug store product.
EDIT: After less than a week the pen no longer works. I twist the base ten times and nothing comes out. Save your money, this is an okay product but it's not worth the trouble.

I have to say that there was some trial and error with this product. I didn't care for it after trying it originally, and then just forgot about it. I found this pen again recently and figured I'd give it another try. It still didn't work to cover my dark under-eye circles very well. Before giving up on it forever, I applied some to my ring finger, and starting to dab it under my eye that way, instead. What a difference!!! Basically, the brush with this pen sucks; It doesn't apply product evenly enough to mask dark eye circles. I would suggest using your finger(but LIGHTLY). It does a much more effective job. I give this concealer a 4/5 total because the coverage could still be just a liiiiittle better, but the illumination really helps to disguise darkness and brighten the face. Not a bad product once you learn to use it right.

Is this a highlighter or a concealer or a highlighting concealer?
It seemed a bit luminizing to me, but did NOT cover anything. Not worth the price. If you don't have barely any undereye circles and are just looking to brighten the undereye area, this may work for you. But if you have any darkness to conceal at all, it will not work. There is almost zero coverage. Also had to twist it up literally 100 times before any product came out-crappy packaging. I think it was $12 or $13? Way high for a drugstore product.

This is the only highlighter pen I've used, so I have nothing too compare it too. I can say that my budget this month wouldn't allow for the higher-priced ones, so I am happy with this considering the price. It doesn't cover dark circles, but it brightens the area- making them less noticable. It really brightens above my eyes and brows and takes away the redness. It still looks okay after 6 hours too.

I have been using this product for about a month. I am impressed by the product because I have not been able to find a drug store 'highlighter' that actually works. I have dark circles that with any other type of concealer they don't go away; I think that is why I liked the product so much because it actually covers the dark circles up. The only down side is the packaging. There is not a whole lot of product in the stick that it comes in, plus you have to twist it over and over before the highlighter comes out. For the price the product does its job but I wish there was more that came with it.

I tried a sample of YSL's Touche Eclat and fell in love with it, but just can't afford the hefty price tag. So I went searching for a drugstore substitute and found this. I wouldn't say it's an exact dupe, but given the price difference it's close enough. I layer it over foundation under my eyes, and that makes it work as a concealer. I don't think it would be enough coverage on its own for really dark circles, but it's not a true concealer anyway; it's a highlighter. It doesn't crease and it does brighten. Not real fond of the pen; you have to twist and twist and then the product just spurts out, but I think that's true of every pen I've tried.

I have this in light. I repurchased it once only because I had tried an undereye concealer that was too thick and drying and I was in too much of a hurry to select anything else.
Pros: I like this product for what it does. It brightens up my undereye area, blends in easily without working the delicate skin too hard, and does not make lines and dryness more apparent. The coverage is just ok, but it is not really designed for a lot of coverage.
Cons: I went through this stuff way too fast considering what it costs. There could not have been much product in the tube to begin with. Plus, clicking the tube caused too much product to come out at once, so a lot of it was wasted.
I would buy this repeatedly if it had more efficient packaging, but otherwise, no. It is really not that cheap for a drug store concealer.

I've heard & read rumors that this product is a dupe for YSL Touche Eclat so of course I had to try this out for myself. In YSL I wear shade 1 therefore I purchased the Magic Lumi in the lightest available shade in fair. After using the Magic Lumi for a few days I've tossed it into the junk bin. I personally don't think it's anything close to the YLS, except maybe the click pen brush applicator packaging. The Magic Lumi in fair is a neutral shade, but appears grayish and ashen under my eyes whereas the YSL has a pinky-pink undertone that neutralizes and brightens. The Magic Lumi is sheer and has a slight shimmer which only looks odd with the grey cast present. I even tried using this product as a face hi-lighter as suggested on L'Oreal's website, but it interferes with my foundation and looks cakey. Overall a fail for me and not an item I`ll be repurchasing.

I bought this bc when it first came out, it was hyped as a dupe for YSL TE. Seems like every concealer pen is touted that way now. I do not have dark circles to cover, I'm very lucky for that. I do have a vein that runs under my left eye that I cover bc it can sometimes look like a dark circle is there. And if you cover one side, you gotta do the other haha. This pen contains a medium consistency liquid with light, sheer coverage. Which is fine for my purposes. If you are looking for some coverage, this won't work for you alone. However, it is a decent brightener so along with the lightness, it is good for layering. It works alright for me, but I won't repurchase. I'm trying my darndest to get rid of the one I've got. It's lasted several months with daily use and I would like to move on! I'm sure you all understand this feeling :)

I love this highlighter!
I've always had dark circles and even though I didn't actually know before that it isn't a concealer, it definitely works like one. At least for me. It covers dark circles completely and makes me look fresh and well rested.
The packaging is beautiful, brush is comfortable and easy to use, product is great - I've got nothing bad to say about it, really.

I bought this thinking it was a concealer too!
But then I realized isn't even labeled as a concealer, it says " highlighter" and " Touch of light" doesn't say concealer anywhere, so weird, why do we all thought it was one?
So I was dissapointed but I guess it was my fault
Doesn't cover anything and yes the colors are very light.
So I started to use it as a highlighter and it's pretty good! It's It has a blush so you just brush it through your nose, cheekbones, forehead, etc (it has the perfect size for cheekbones ) and then blend it a little bit, it's very easy to use and perfect to carry around :)

For me, this product was something I really regret. I bought it a long time ago, because I just ran out my concealer, so.. I bought this. What I wanted this to do, was to cover dark circles, blemishes and a little redness. When i put it on, I looked like a ghost! The colour was almost white and it didn't cover. I would only recommend this as a highlighter and maybe under eyes! For me it just didn't worked. And I ran out of it in only 2 weeks!!

I don't use concealer but how can I not have a few laying around as a makeup junkie, and Im sure one day it will come to use.
First of all I love a "luminous" look all my foundation's are luminizing (EL's Lucidity, Lancome's Miracle, Photogenic.......some of my favorites)
I own YSL's pen and it's nice to have and look at........ and use one day.
L'Oreal is a decent brand and I have purchased a few items from them (mascaras,conditioners,eye serum's and such) and they are fine.
I got this Magic Lumi pen in the lightest shade I believe Light/pale
and being super fair and cool it's fine a bit too dark but good enough.
That same day I also picked up Maybelline's DreamLumi concealer in Radiant and Ivory they are so inexpensive compared to YSL. (2nd or 3rd purchase from Maybelline)
In my opinion the Maybelline is much better than the L'oreal, it's more luminous and not as drying. The shade Radiant (maybelline's) is apparently for everyone and it's got a neutral pinky tone to it.
I really was impressed with Maybelline's product and it definately can be a re-placement for YSL. It may not last as long as YSL but it's close enough if you are looking from your wallet's point of view, quality...........of course YSL is a high end brand and technically you can't compare but really they are very close in performance. I wouldn't even bother with L'Oreal's because it didn't WOW me. Please keep in mind I did a trial on all 3 once and wore them for about 8hrs, I did not put any of them under my eyes, so I can't say how well they work for dark circles. If you use concealer everyday and can't see yourself spending on YSL try Maybelline's I think it's really good enough, it's a concealer not a foundation or a primer.

I was hoping for a cheaper alternative to Touche Eclat, but this doesn't work for me. First, this formula is much drier than YSL's, so it crinkled up my skin. Second, it removed my foundation wherever I put it. Third, the color was very unflattering for me. I buy the lightest color of YSL, which has a little bit of pink in it and looks natural on my skin. The lightest color of the L'Oreal version is just weird on my skin -- almost gives a gray cast. I've been looking half dead the last three days, but today I did my makeup without the Magic Lumi and I look alive again. So no more Magic Lumi for me. (In addition to Touche Eclat, I've had luck with Bare Minerals Radiance as well as a Merle Norman powder highlighter that I use in the same places I would use Touche Eclat.)
