I really liked MAC's Prep+Prime Highlighting Pen, it was great for my dark under eye area. What I didn't appreciate was the price, 23€ for 3,6 ml / 0,12 fl. oz. Alltough you don't need much, but still, quite pricey! So I've been looking for a new under eye concealer that would be something even close to the MAC one. I found the Lumi Magique Touch of Light Highlighter Pen for 10€ which was nice, usually this retails around 17€ here in Finland, that's quite expensive for a drugstore concealer...
I swatched this pen many times in the store before actually buying it. I liked the consistency when I swatched it and I really liked the classic and high end look of the packaging, it's not drugstore or cheap looking at all. So it was pretty easy to take it home :)
The brush is ok, it feels soft and it makes application easy. You just have to twist the pen a few times to get the product out, that I found to be a bit weird.
What comes to quality of the product itself, unfortunately this is nothing like the MAC's Prep+Prime Highlighting Pen. I will use this under my eyes but with something else that covers my darks circles, Lumi Magique alone is not going to do that. It's too opaque and lacks pigmentation. I guess this really is just a highlighting pen and that's it, it's not working as an under eye concealer, at least not for me because my circles are darker than average. I don't use this as a highlighter and I don't know if it would even work because I'm so super pale. I prefer my highlighters in powdery form. I do like how it feels, it's easy to blend and leaves my skin looking evened out and radient, but it doesn't conceal that much.
Too bad, I really thought this would be something like the MAC pen... Too bad it didn't meet my expectations! Maybe I will try this out as a highlighter and see how it works on my face.
