I heart L’Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer

I tried this out after reading reviews that it was similar to the YSL Touche Eclat. I haven’t been able to bring myself to pay $50 CAD for the YSL, but wanted a highlighter pen to brighten my under-eye area after concealing. Since I haven’t personally tried it, I can’t tell you if the L’oreal Magic Lumi is a dupe for the YSL Touche Eclat, but I do know that I really love the Magic Lumi.

Although called a “concealer”, L’Oreal’s description clearly puts it firmly in the land of highlighter: “Awaken your skin with targeted illumination…highlights your complexion and boosts radiance for a subtle glow. Dab it on dark areas or shadows for instant enlightenment.” This is not meant to cover blemishes or dark circles. If you buy it for that purpose I think you would be disappointed. I got it in the shade “860 Fair” and was super impressed with how light it is – actually lighter than my very fair skin. Finally, something light enough to actually work as a highlighter!

After I apply my under-eye concealer, I dab this underneath the area I have concealed, just in that slightly more shadowy area that needs a little extra brightening (you know what I mean, and if not, check out gossmakeupartist’s video on this technique). The Magic Lumi has a light, sheer consistency, so it brightens without adding extra cakeyness. It also doesn’t crease or settle into lines. I do set it and my under-eye concealer with MUF HD Microfinish Powder.

If you have tried the YSL Touche Eclat, let me know if you think it’s worth the splurge. Would you recommend it? Leave me a comment.

The L’Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer retails for about $12.99 CAD.

Thanks for stopping by ❤
