Maybelline Dream LumiTouch Highlighing Concealer Review

This has become an indispensable part of my make-up regimen, for it conceals and brightens in one step. I have been using this for last three months and I feel, it is worth the adulation. A great product at a great price.

The look : A creamy emulsion that comes in a pen dispenser form. The back of the pen has to be pressed to eject the content. The applicator brush that comes attached with it, helps in precise application, then it can be blended to cover and highlight. The shade name is “buff”

The Smell: Not bothersome.

The pigmentation : Well, it provides medium coverage and covers minor flaws. If you need very high coverage, this product is not for you.

How it works: It works as a great eye and under eye area concealer, and also as a good eye primer. After applying the foundation, I apply it around my eye socket and blend it in, also around the corners of the mouth and nose. It does not have any conspicuous glitter or high shine, and imparts a very naturally emanating glow. One cannot expect it to cover major acne marks and blemishes. It is a product tailored made for skin that does not require much coverage.

Highly Recommended ! It is a holy grail product for me, and I shall buy it again 🙂

pros:

  1. Decent highlighter
  2. Not glittery and artificial
  3. Imparts a natural glow
  4. Works as a great eye primer
  5. Brightens the under eye area and also corners of nose and mouth
  6. Not harsh on skin

cons:

  1. Not for high coverage requirements
  2. limited Shades available

Price: INR 475 for 1.5 ml

Product Score: 4/5

Make-Up Bits and Bytes : Concealers in Make-up Art

 Concealers in Make-up Art

So, I realize it every Friday that time flies away … really .. I am going to talk about concealers today .

concealer-tutorial-L1

Concealers as they are named are meant to cover up flaws in the skin such as dark spots, discolorations, scars, under eye dark circles, puffiness etc. Their composition is heavier than foundations and are available in liquid, cream, packaged in tubes, pots , bottles etc. Concealers that are highly pigmented can provide unexpected coverage to cover up even the tattoos on skin. The concealers need to be blended properly into the skin and can be used by itself or along with foundations.

Concealers for face can be used under or over foundations depending upon the type of foundation applied on the skin. If the foundation is a powder foundation or something with less moisture content, it is advised to use the concealer underneath, while in case of a liquid or cream foundation, they are best applied over.

Some renowned brand names when it comes to concealers include Ben Nye, Kryolan Dermacolor, YSL Touche Eclat etc… Also, MAC has some good concealers.

The concealers for the under eye area are best when they are creamy in texture with light to medium pigmentation. This is because the skin around the eye is delicate and sensitive, hence the product also ought to be chosen with care. If the concealer is too heavy, it would lead to pulling and tugging of the delicate skin leading to premature wrinkles. It is imperative to choose a shade lighter when it comes to selection of under eye concealers. In case, you are using a stick concealer, ensure that you apply the pigment with your finger tips from the stick rather than direct application.

So, please free to share your thoughts and inputs on the same 🙂 .

By the way , Happy Weekend ……

Lotus Natural Blend 4 in 1 Swift Makeup Stick Review

This product has been used my me so many times, yet so much of it is left and I am about to throw this away ! Why???????

Its expired!

This is much similar to the “BB Stick” , I reviewed few days back, at least when it comes to the packaging. The review is different from my usual way of writing :). The shade I bought is ” Honey Beige”.

It applies hassle free, just swipe all over the face and blend , so that it disappears into the skin. This one gives moderate coverage to hide mild under eye rings and spots, which is more than the BB Stick. The best use that I put it to is to prime my eyelids with it. This is an awesome Primer, and makes eye makeup last on and on…..

Also, I adore the dewy look it gives to my skin after application, though Oily skinned beauties might find it oily. So, it is advised to careful before using this.

Price: INR 250

Summary: A decent product fit for daily wear , best bought if you do not require much coverage. A very good eye lid primer though, provided your lids are not oily. It might feel greasy on very oily skin.

Product Score: 3.5/5
