High Street vs. DrugStore: YSL Touché Éclat Highlighter/ Maybelline's Dream Lumi Touch Highlighter

Hello everyone, hope you're all well.x
so it's been a long time since i've done a review on a product, and to be honest, i didn't have any new product i wanted to share my thoughts on it with you guys, so i thought i would do a drugstore vs. high end post on the famous YSL touche eclat and the maybelline dream lumi touch. so lets get on with it shall we!

YSL in 3/ Maybelline in 3

To be fair, both products are lovely. but personally, i like the ysl  better. i mean i'd rather invest in an expensive product. the lumi touch is nothing compared to the ysl one, i find it very drying for my skin, doesn't last a lot, i fee like it whitens your face instead of waking or brightening it up and it breaks out my skin.plus, you don't as much product as the ysl one, the packaging of the lumi touch is just awful, it wore out very quickly and i've only had it for about 3 months or so. so i definitely recommend investing in the ysl one, it will last you for absolute ages, and it won't damage your skin. i know the lumi touch has been in one of my current obsession posts, but to be honest i was fooled. 
if you're looking for a cheap alternative, i'd recommend the l'oreal magique highlighting concealer,it actually is very close to the touche eclat. 
what i like about the ysl one, is that it's super light on your skin and it actually highlights, i would recommend getting it one shade lighter than your original skin tone ( i didn't do that) so you can use it as a proper highlighter. it fits in your carry on bag (which is a must for me). i dont think you need to sit it with any powder or it'll look cakey and you'll loose that oh so glowy affect it gives. 
and if you want a review on the whole Touche Eclat collection, you can find it here.

if you're now intimidated by me and you just want to get your hand these, i'll make your life easier:

Much Love Always.xx
