Maybelline has a new click pen concealer out entitled Dream Lumi Touch.
I was thinking how much I missed Dream Mousse Concealer, truly an HG concealer (holy grail) if ever I did see one. You know, how cool would it be if Maybelline did a concealer in a similar format as their new Dream Bouncy Blushes? You gotta admit that would be truly outrageous right?
I was hoping Dream Lumi might be a replacement for Dream Mousse Concealer but in a click pen!
Let’s take a look!
Naa, def not a replacement for Dream Mousse. I guess I was just hopeful that since Dream Mousse Concealer was such a hit with me that Dream Lumi Touch Concealer would be too.
Nothing wrong at all with the formula here but I like my concealers on the thicker side and this is a little thinner.
This comes in a click pen so you can click and proceed to brush product on and blend out with fingers. One thing I noticed with these is the fact that the colors run very, very light. I purchased Ivory and Nude and both were too pale for me. So just keep that in mind prior to a purchase.

The formula is moisturizing, quite pigmented to conceal dark circles, etc…and blends out easily. The only issue I had with the formula was it was a bit thinner and runnier which I’m not particularly keen on, I prefer cream concealers with a thicker texture. Wear time will vary but for me I could get 5 hours out of this before I saw minor fading but you can easily get through at least an 8 hour day without a touch up if you prep well prior to application.
I didn’t have any issues with creasing or caking and the formula didn’t dry my eyes out which are already dry as is. So this didn’t add anything to the existing problem which leads me to believe that this will work perfectly fine on drier eyes.
Overall, if you like click style concealers and are looking for one on the cheap this might appeal. It’ll set you back $7.99 and comes in six shades. Just be careful when selecting your shade as they run quite light in my humblest. This one didn’t make much of an impression on me for some reason. I’m a concealer junkie and I just didn’t feel like there was anything special here to get excited about. Perhaps if I get the correct color for my tone I might be more inclined to rave it a little more but I just felt like it was too runny for my tastes.
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer is available now at drugstores.
