Highlighter Ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Isododecane, Alcohol Denat., Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Phenoxyethanol, Magnesium Sulfate, Diphenyl Dimethicone, Cellulose Gum, Hydroxystearic Acid, Acetylated Glycol Stearate, Acrylates Copolymer, Methylparaben, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Vitis Vinifera/Grape Fruit Extract, Butlyparaben, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Propylene Glycol, Aluminum Hydroxide, Chamomilla Recutita Matricaria Flower Extract.

Directions:

Conceal: Dot small amount of coverage onto flaws and discoloration with precision tip. Gently blend out with fingertip.

Highlight:
Apply small amount with soft touch brush to brighten (see diagram). Gently blend out with fingertips.

PROS: I like how it's a double-ended tube, one end to conceal (doe foot tip), another end to highlight areas of the face (brush wand) such as under the brow bone, apples of the cheeks, nose, and forehead. I personally like how it's not in a plastic squeeze tube where it can get messy and leak out. It goes on like a dream and blends easily. It really did a good job at concealing any imperfections; in this case my under eye circles. It's great to store in your makeup bag for touchups and if you have nice skin as it is, you can wear this alone. There is no funky smell and I love how the "highlight" portion can really give you a more bright, wide-eyed look. It also doesn't settle into fine lines and cause creasing, which I LOVE since most concealers do this...it stays put and doesn't feel greasy or give me a cakey "melt-y" look.

CONS:
None at the moment!

How does it compare to my MAC StudioFinish Concealer? This is liquid, my MAC one is cream, so the cream one is definitely a lot thicker, but at times can get cakey if I accidentally put too much. I love how easy it was to blend the Maybelline one, and with the MAC one I have to sometimes mix it with a drop of moisturize or Fix+ spray so it's not so 'dry' and so it goes on smoother. It's definitely a good alternative for days I just want to conceal and not wear any foundation.

Blend and then apply highlight:


Success!

Hey Vanessa!

I actually purchased this weeks ago but I didn't really use the highlighting feature. My main concern was finding a good concealer. However, I think I will use the highlight in an upcoming FOTD! Thanks for the post!! :)

Incandescent said...

thanks! I've been curious about this product but wasn't sure if I wanna buy it or not. now I really really wanna try it, although I think I"ll have to finish up my neutrogena concealer first -_-

Eva said...

hey ! this is awesome. Your reviews and very thorough and lots of good advice. I just wnat to say thakn you for all the time you spent giving your advice and doing all this!

I was wondering which concealer you would pick: This Maybelline one or the physician's formula twin concealer that you also had. thanks! :)

Ethereal Prey said...

i wonder if it settles into pores and lines, the mac concealer in the tube did that and that was so not cool!

Joey said...

I have this! I got in a long long time ago (like, months! haha) and used it for a week or two.. I liked it (: THEN I picked up MAC's moisture cover concealer, and I fell in love.

Thanks for the review, though!

Shellie said...

Sweet Potato said...

Excellent review! I love to hear the pros and cons of a product before I try it out! So glad that Necessarymakeup is around to give me guidance!

Lani said...

oh wow thanks so much for the review. definitely must try. ;)

Chu said...

Excellent review, like sweet potato said, I use to search reviews before I try it out.
I am asian too, and I use the same shade! (light/medium), I thank god that I did not try out the medium shade, medium tones usually get orange tones in my skin XD And I don't know why!

VerĂ³nica said...

Hi :) thanks for the review! it's really helpful. Actually, i need a concealer with orange and yellow tones, which one do you think would work best on me? light medium o medium? because i've tried other maybelline's concealers which were too pink, and left me a grayish color :(
Please please, thankss!! :)
