Review: L`oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter

4 years ago

I`ve always wanted the YSL Touche Eclat or the Dior SKinlights highlighter pen but they are so expensive. They retail for about $50 in Canada and I just can`t justify spending so much money on a small highlighter. I did buy the Lancome version of it though, and it was less than $30.

While I was shopping during the Shoppers Drug Mart 20X the points event, I needed an extra $3 in order to reach the minimum amount to be eligible for the 20X the points. I spotted the L`oreal Magic Lumi concealer

<strong>Product:</strong> L`oreal Magic Lumi Concealer in Fair
<strong>Price:</strong> $13.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart

I have seen this product for a dollar or two cheaper at other places. But I needed the extra $3 for 20X the points, and this was a product that I really wanted to try, so I still got it even though it was a little bit more expensive.

This product, although called a concealer, is usually being compared against brightener or highlighter pens like the YSL Touche Eclat, Dior Skinlights etc.

I`m NC20 for MAC, so I`m quite pale. There were no testers so I picked the concealer in Fair. The color turned out to be heavily pink based, so it`s better for cool toned people. I should`ve picked the shade Light, which usually indicates yellow based concealers and foundations. However, since I use it for the undereyes, pink is good as it`s supposed to be great at concealing blue or black circles.

The concealer is in pen form, with a synthetic brush tip. You twist the bottom of the pen to dispense more product.

-gives the same subtle luminous effect as my Lancome teint miracle retouch pen (which I really love)
-light texture doesn`t settle into fine lines
-great for other areas that you want to highlight (nose bridge, cheekbones etc.)
-small brush tip allows for precision

-too sheer to really do much for people with dark eye circles
-still a little too pink for my warm skintone (but this is my own fault for picking the wrong color)
-easy to overtwist and waste product since the product takes a second or two to come out, causing you to think that you haven`t twisted enough

Overall, a very good affordable substitute for those higher end highlight/retouch pens. Maybelline also makes a similar product called Dream Lumi, so I will try that one before making a final decision on which one I will be sticking with.

<strong>Have you guys ever seen or tried these type of pen form brighteners before? Which one do you like the best?</strong>
