Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer
Advantages: good even coverage
Disadvantages: not found any
I love make-up and actually wear it on a daily basis including weekend. I am actually lucky that I have quite good smooth skin however I have few imperfections, especially really dark circles under my eyes and not matter what miracle eye cream I use, and nothing seems to get rid of them. Thanks to the dark circles under my eyes, I look like I haven't slept for week and so concealer has become a part of my make-up bag and I always make sure that have some available. I have previously used concealer by Maybeline from the minerals range but not been able to find it in the shops recently and so decided to try the Dream Lumi Touch concealer.
A concealer is a type of makeup used to mask dark circles and other small blemishes visible on the skin. The product is presented in 5inch long slim pen looking like tube made out of plastic. After some on-line research i found out, that ther is 9g of product in the tube (i failed to find this info on the actual product). In my opinion it is not looking particularly special, I have seen concealers from other make-up brand in similar packaging. This one of course states name of the product on it in golden writing. The tube doesn't appear transparent however, after you have used the product for few days you may notice that actually you can see how much product you will have left.
To use the concealer, you need to remove transparent plastic lid which is placed over the small brush. Concealer is then dispensed by turning the bottom of the concealer to the right and watch the concealer appear from the brush. Now, when you first use this product, you might need to turn it few times before concealer appears, after that it is just once or twice depending or how much you wish to use. This product lasts me a month this is with using it every day and due to its size, it is handy for even the smallest make-up bag or on the go.
I use my concealer for the dark circles under my eyes. I also found that this concealer does a good job of hiding blemishes by blending the other skin imperfection into the surrounding skin tone. I often use it around my nose as well as in between my eyebrow where I have a small scar which is not very visible but I know it's there and like to cover it. I normally make couple of turns to dispense the concealer and apply initially under my eyes and use my finger to blend it into my skin. Concealer the right consistency for my, not too thick or thin and I find it very easy to apply just by using my finger. Concealer blends in nicely with my skin tone and I also find that I get no "creases" under my eyes which I have previously experienced using different concealers. Product delivers very well, i am happy with it as I am left with good even coverage and bright looking eyes.
Product is available in three different shades. You get to choose from Ivory, Nude or Sand. I already use Dream Creamy make-up by Maybeline in Sand shade and so wanted to buy concealer in the same colour however it was not available on the day of my purchase and after conducting a quick test using tester available, I decide Nude shade should do for me.
I have purchased it from Boots, at the time of my purchase, they had 2 for £10 offer on however the full price of the product is £6.99 in Boots but price may vary in different shops.
I am happy to recommend this product especially if you want to mask dark circles.
Summary: recommended for dark circles under the eyes
