|Maybelline Dream Lumi TouchHighlighting Concealer|
|Touche Eclat Concealer|
Over the years, I have splurged on YSL's cult classic Touche Eclat Concealer a number of times. I have always thought it did a better job of highlighting than concealing, but nonetheless, I found its stripes well earned.
My other issue was that originally, Touche Eclat was offered in a limited range of shades, none quite right for me. I knew of people who bought two and blended, but $82 is not in my wheelhouse to spend on concealers that don't, well, conceal.
When they finally expanded their offering to 12 shades, I reviewed it again and finally found a perfect match.
Yesterday, I spotted Maybelline's version of Touche Eclat, Dream Lumi Touch, described as a, "highlighting concealer". Housed in a far less glam plastic tube, it sports the same click pen applicator as Touche. For $8 bucks, I couldn't resist buying it...
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch is available in 6 gel-based shades, and despite my instinct to go with the darker Nude shade. I opted to try Radiant instead.
While I still needed a bit of regular concealer under my eyes, I found that dabbing it, as suggested, under my eyes, on the outer and inner corners and just above my eyebrows, instantly made me look like I had another 3 hours of sleep.
Shall I repeat that???
