I own the touché eclat and yes, this is comparable. They both have their strengths and weaknesses. First, maybelline is tons cheaper and offers more coverage. The downside, it can get cakey and is not really lightweight unlike the touché éclat which looks extremely natural no matter how much you pile on. Those are basically the only differences I see between the two, and also the pink undertone of touche eclat and yellow undertone of maybelline, but that is because I own touché eclat in radiant and maybelline in ivory. I plan on buying the touche éclat in ivory and maybelline in radiant sometime within the next few months and will update. Bottom line, they are both equivalent in their quality overall. If you want natural radiance and don't have too dark of undereye circles, then I would recommend touche éclat. If you have dark circles such as I, and would risk the possibility of cakiness and not a lightweight texture, and dont want to shell out on the touche éclat, then I recommend maybelline. Because of my dark circles, I prefer maybelline as a product by itself. However, I find the best solution for me is to apply coastal scents bright eyed first (which I love and is comparable to Armani master corrector) and layer touché éclat over top.

Lightweight and really camouflages my dark circles. I own the touché eclat in radiant and I prefer this, not only because the coastal scents is ten times cheaper, but for me, this gave me a brighter look with better coverage. This is amazing. Especially for the price, I can't justify my gratefulness. Not to mention that customer service is outstanding as well.
Did not do anything in terms of straightening.
