What I say...
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer comes in a twist up pen like packaging. You need to twist up the bottom & the product comes out on the brush tip. Unlike other twist up products you just need to twist it 3-4 times & it dispenses the product out.
They say its available in 6 shades but I have seen only 3 shades on counters. Im in the shade Honey which is the darkest shade available & it suits me well.
The product is not actually like a gel & doesn't even feel gel like. It is a pink based concealer which is great for highlighting.  It is very smooth to apply. Doesn't settles into fine lines. It has a dry finish so you need to moisturize the under well. It may look grey & ashy if you have major dark circles. So you need to use a normal concealer for dark circles underneath & then apply this for the highlighted look.

It is a highlighting concealer so you are not suppose to use on the blemishes, as you don't want your blemishes to get highlighted & make them prominent. I use it where I need to highlight my face, like I use it under the eye in a V shape. On the bridge of the nose & some continuous flared out strokes on the forehead, on the side of the mouth. I don't know why they have directed to use on the sides of your nose! You don't want the sides of the nose to get highlighted & make it look broad, it has to be contoured!!!

It blends well & doesn't dries out as soon as you apply, so you can put it everywhere on the face where needed & then start blending it. I use it after my liquid foundation is done.

I love the effect that it gives. It looks very healthy & the highlighted area look naturally bright! So thats good! I haven't had issues with the weartime too. After using it you have to wipe the tip as the product may dry out on it & not letting easy application for the next use.
Pros:
  • easy to use
  • travel friendly
  • healthy highlighted look 
  • blends well
  • doesnt looks cakey
  • smooth to apply
  • doesn't settles into fine lines
  • longwear
Cons:
  • wont suit dry skin
  • may look ashy if used on its own if you have major dark circles
Verdict: This is a sure repurchase for me. I love highlighting & contouring everyday, so this is an added bonus. I love how bright it makes me look, without making it look unnatural.
