I have increasingly become more and more snobbish about the quality of my makeup, and therefore I have begun to fork out more money for the better goods.
However, it has NOT been the case for my under-eye concealer (of all things!!!). I tried YSL's Touche Eclat, and my cool shade of True Match was just as satisfying for, like, a fraction of the cost and probably more product. This stuff is a gem. I'm sure some expensive undereye concealers may beat out True Match, but why pursue a $60 Cle de Peau concealer stick when a six dollar drugstore product does the job brilliantly?
This is the best. I use the cool version since I have pale skin and dark circles under my eyes. These completely cover it. I've used at least 10 bottles of this over the years. It's an excellent product, very creamy, doesn't crease or wear off all day.
I lovelovelove this product. It's the only thing that covers my dark circles and blemishes. It was $7.99 @ my local target, and 2/ a $2.00 off coupon, it became $5.99. It's creamy, and medium coverage which I pretty much need...
I might not buy it again though, because I learned that L'oreal tests on animals :(
At least this concealer doesn't trigger my impurities...
It doesn't give much coverage, and I need to use a brush. The colour is nice. It's ok, not more than that.
I've been using this concealer for over a year now, and I have mixed feelings about it. It's great for using under the eye, but it doesn't cover my acne or acne scars very well, and it dries the skin where I use it on blemishes. Strangely, it doesn't dry under my eyes much. I love the packaging, the small brush is great for application. I will continue to buy this product for the sole purpose of concealing dark under-eye circles, but I'm searching for a new product for the rest of my many blemishes.
Surprisingly, I actually like this product. I bought this at my local CVS when they had the BOGO 50% off on L'Oreal products. I picked this up in W4-5 and it works better than most of my expensive concealers i currently have! I like the packaging - like a nail polish type applicator and it blends in creamy and the coverage is buildable. Definitely will repurchase if i run out.
This is my go-to concealer. Loreal offers a large variety of colors (in warm, neutral, and cool tones) to choose from, so it was very easy finding a perfect match for me skin. Also, the range of tonal options allows you to pick different concealers for different concealer purposes (e.g. under eye circles vs. pimples).
I really like this concealer. It is very pigmented, which is great because I have very dark acne scars and under eye circles. Also, the applicator brush is very convenient. In the morning, I just sweep it under my eyes and blend it out. The product is very blendable, and you don't even need a concealer brush!
The only thing I would improve is the packaging. The concealer gets everywhere on the bottle, even if you're careful about not rubbing the brush accidentally on the rim of the bottle. It's also a hassle to wipe down the bottle.
Edit: I've found that the color for the True Match foundation does not correspond well with the True Match concealer. I bought a foundation with the same tone and color as my concealer (which is perfect on my skin), but the foundation was about two shades too light. My recommendation is not to rely on the color labeling but just do the old fashion method of checking your wrist.
Blends well. Provides light coverage which I like, although I would never suggest it to anyone wanting full coverage. Lightened undereye circles maybe 70%. Good for the occasional blemish/spot coverage, but looks cakey and gross on larger areas (I don't need it on large areas anyway). I despise the packaging. It comes in a tube similar to lip gloss, with a completely useless synthetic hair brush with it that only blots jumbo drops onto your skin. The brush brings out WAY too much of the watery product- I keep accidentally getting way too much and having to waste it by blotting it off with a tissue. I was happy that it is small and compact, but I have to carry around a separate applicator with it. It sets in well with the matching True Match powder. I'd have given it a 3/5, but you pale girls know how hard it is to find a shade that matches you well enough - this True Match line deserves a full star just for that.
I got this to use as just a bit of extra, sheer, coverage under my eyes. I already use Hard Candy Glamoflague for heavy coverage but that isn't something I need everyday.
This doesn't quite work for me. I use N1 in the True Match foundation and this concealer is for N1-3, so its a bit too dark for me. Works fine around my nose though so I'll keep it around for that. But for under my eyes, its not any better than using the regular foundation.
i brought this product not really expecting much from it but overtime its grown on me. i have yellow undertones and am nc 40ish. i got the medium shade in N4-5 in neutral. it does show up sort of orangey on my face but not very prominently. i dust a bit of mineral powder foundation over this and it looks fine. the coverage isnt anywhere near WOW but for the price,you cant complain. i use this when my skin is sort of behaving and i dont have a lot of angry red pimples to cover.its fine for hyper pigmentation and light-medium scarring. a little goes a long way so dont slather on. i personally prefer using it with a flat concealer brush to blend.
bottomline,when i run ouit,i might try to find a closer shade but would def repurchase.
EDIT - I actually was at the drugstore last week trying to find a better shade but they didn't have any. The revlon SA suggested the colorstay foundation and that works really really good and you get a lot more product for the same price. And much better color range. The coverage can be built up to full coverage without looking caky.
