Maybelline Dream Lumitouch

Hello Lovelies

I have been a big fan of the YSL Touche Eclat for awhile now but I'm not the biggest fan of the pricetag...at a whooping €35 it makes me a little sad!
So I have been looking for a cheaper alternative for awhile. Luckly enough I am blessed not to have major dark circles but I think we all like to have a little eye brightening to help us along.
So one product I have tried lately and been LOVING is the Maybelline Dream Lumitouch Concealer. I actually recieved this as a gift from my lovely mammy but I know it is around the €10 mark in Boots which is a significate €25 in the difference.


 I got it in the shade Ivory which is the lightest that they did. I do love the consistancy of this concealer. The coverage is actually better than the YSL I wasn't looking for it for that purpose but it is a nice addition. It gives a lovely illumating look to the skin. It is meant to be a gel based concealer which I think is brilliant because its lovely and light but still your not completely bare faced which is good.

The only thing I would say about it is that there isn't a wide color range, I was lucky that I happened to suit the Ivory shade but with a tan on I wouldn't be able to get away with it.

I just thought I would do a few swatchs of the Lumitouch and the Touche Eclat for you just so you can see both. I am shade number two in the YSL which is abit more pinky toned just incase you're wondering for the difference.
