I only bought this because I ran out of my Pixi undereye corrector (brightening peach), and I heard this was a similar color. Honestly I didn't expect much, but HOLY MOLY it is the exact same peachy-pink color, but a thinner consistency, which is awesome. I was always worried about the Pixi corrector creasing, but this one is so silky and thin that it really doesn't crease, it more floats above the creases in a way. And the way it corrects my atrocious undereye circles is just terrific. I don't even need to use anything over this, but I usually dust a skin-tone colored powder over to set it for the day.

I really like this i also have the nude shade. I like this under my normal concealer also maybelline i use it in the inner corner of my eyes where my dark circles are the darkest i also love this for highlighting it really brightens up your face so i also put it on my cheekbones. Love it will repurchase :)

the color does a good job counteracting the discoloration under my eyes. and it adds a subtle brightness to my face. it lasts through out the day and the formula is nice and light.
i would say touche eclat is slightly more sheer and milky. i use to buy clinique's airbrush pen, but i find this one to be lighter and not as cakey. clinique's pen and touche eclat made under my eyes look ashen, but the dream lumi pen doesn't. i also like how you can see how much product is still in the pen. it says that it's a concealer, but i would probably dub it as a corrector. it works well to color correct undereye circles, but there's not enough coverage to do any good for zits. it works like bobbi brown's corrector, but i prefer the lighter formula of the lumi pen. this is my favorite corrector/brightener style concealer i've found.

This is a really nice product for concealing dark circles. It's not heavy and it has a fairly thin consistency, but the salmony-peachy shade really helps to cancel out darkness underneath the eyes. It creases on me a little, so that's definitely a downside to this. As others have said, there really isn't much product- 0.05 ounces I believe, which is miniscule! Benefit's Erase Paste, another product I use on my dark circles, has three times the product and costs about three times (in Canada) as much just to put it in perspective. So this isn't exactly cheap, even if it seems to be. It works well so I don't have too many qualms with the cost, and it is easily accessible.

This is great for my dark under eye circles. i'm nc10-15 and was concerned this looked too pink, but it's perfect and really brightening. it does crease a bit, but it's very creamy and applies well. i don't love the brush applicator and wish it was a squeeze tube, but it's better than a pot that i have to dip my finger into. one of the cons is this doesn't have a lot of product, and doesn't last long.

I haven't worn a concealer since I used one in middle school to cover up blemishes, but I'm glad I discovered this through one of my favorite beauty gurus on YouTube. The product is easy to use, provides the natural-looking coverage I want and is the perfect color for my fair (NW13) skin. I use this underneath my eyes, on the occasional blemish and to even my skin tone in areas where I have a bit more redness. My only complaint is that the "bristles" of the brush sometimes get bent and wonky, but I'm usually able to smooth them out.

Let me start by saying I have very dark undereye circles and this product doesn't do a great job of covering them. For people like me, we need a corrector and a concealer. This product is a thin pink based corrector/highlighter and it doesn't cover much. It's great for brightening the under eye area though. This product is best for people who don't have very dark undereye circles. For me, I apply a corrector (Bobbi Brown), concealer, then this product and it brightens my undereye.
The product itself doesn't last long even when set with powder. Halfway through my day, most of it is gone and I have to reapply.
The packaging is inconvenient with the click-style and there is not much product in the pen. This product may break people out due to some of the ingredients:

I have been using this since late December and I like it. It is both brightening and concealing, best coverage of my dark circles thus far of any concealer I have used. I also use it down my nose and a bit as a higlight around tops of cheekbones. It's doesn't crease and it's not drying as I was concerned. I usually use creamy stick concealers so again, I was concerned that the thin liquidy consistency would be drying. Not so. The one drawback is the brush format packaging and you really don't get that much. I have used quite a bit since December and I see that this won't last me that long. For hygienic purposes, I spray the the brush itself almost daily with a spray bottle filled with 90 percent isopropyl alcohol. That said, I would re-purchase it.

For reference, I am nc25-30, warm undertone. This color is definitely very bright and pink. It's way too light for my skin tone so I only use the tiniest amount. I apply a little underneath my eyes, top of cheekbones, nose bridge and between brows and Cupid's bow. Then I buff it in with a real technique small pointed foundation brush. Def would repurchase!

This is probably the best undereye concealer I've tried. Radiant is a warm pink shade and does a great job at cancelling out my blue-ish dark circles. I am very pale with warm undertones and this concealer is the perfect depth for me: not too dark, not too light. It has a liquid consistency and I use it as a color corrector -- I apply Dream Lumi first, then set it with my regular mineral foundation to help blend it into my skintone and make it last all day. Like most other reviewers, my only complaint is the annoying click-pen packaging. I would much prefer this in a regular squeeze tube.

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
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
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!

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.
