I’m gonna admit – I’m a big time skincare junkie. I always used to believe that if you take care of your skin, then it will not be an expense rather it will be like an investment. Your skin will improve in the long run and you will be able to enjoy the benefits of clean and clear skin and complexion gradually.
I had a wrong belief that investing in makeup is a waste. I would not need any makeup if I invest in a good skin care regimen. But lately, with the advent of a number of makeup products, I have realized that makeup is not something which can substitute your skin care regimen but rather complement it.
Also, there is one makeup product which has attracted me lately – Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer. I have dry skin. And dullness on my face is a regular issue which I have to go through at least once or twice a month. So, I am tempted to use highlighters lately. But I have been confused since long as which one to use. But when Maybelline, the favorite brand of girls worldwide at present came up with this concealer I couldn’t resist it.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer Review
The packaging and the entire formula looked quite interesting and thus I went ahead with this product. And thus here follows the review of the same – Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.
This highlighting concealer from the house of Maybelline comes in the form of a slim and compact pen packaging. It comes in the form of a golden pen packaging. It comes in golden packaging which is semi-transparent. You have to make efforts to see the amount of product left inside. You cannot see it directly.
The pen is in the form of a twist-up packaging. You need to twist the pen clip so that the product comes out. At the first usage, you will need to twist the pen approx. 20 times to get the product out. But later on from next application, it performs completely fine. Therefore, the applicator pen is convenient for travel.
Another fault with the packaging is that there is no way to control the amount of product dispensed with neither you can get it back. So, a lot of product wastage.
Coming to the concealer it is creamy in texture and is light golden in color. It comes in 3 shades – Buff, Ivory, and Honey only which is not apt looking for the wider range of skin tones.
The darkest shade in the concealer range – Honey which I’m using is good for medium complexion girls. Other two shades – Buff and Ivory are mostly for western girls. It’s sad to see there wasn’t any shade for dusky skin beauties.
The concealer is a bit thick so you need to make extra efforts in blending. Also, the excess amount will not get blended and will leave a whitish cast which looks very unhealthy. But if you are successful in blending it, the skin looks very natural and perfect for special occasions. It stays on a for a good amount of time on the face for, say 6-8 hours. It also controls sweat also for a longer time.
- Branded product
- Price affordable
- Blendable on skin
- Very fine diffusing particles
- Long staying power
- Limited shades
- Excess product can make you look whitish

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
This highlighting concealer is good if you’re a beginner at highlighting and concealing. It stays for a decent amount of time and has a great texture. This will give you a feel and hold of how to use highlighters at an affordable price. It would have been a perfect highlighter for me if there were more shades.
