L'Oreal has a problem with all their concealers I have tried. I am not a Light, but I'm not a Light/Medium either, however I am in other lines(that have no problem matching my skintone). This is no different. I wear 3N in the foundation. I bought 1-2-3C concealer. The pink tone works very well to brighten up my under eyes and help conceal my dark circles. It does crease a little, but that can be fixed with a little powder. The pigmentation is good, but I would like it a little heavier. What I don't like is its too light and the 4-5C is too dark. I've had this problem with every L'Oreal Concealer I've tried. They are either too light or too dark. I'm a skintone 2 In Benefit Concealers, which match me perfectly. They need to adjust the skintone range and then I would love this, but as it stands its just a like. I do however like the fact that it is pink based, as yellow based concealers look horrible on me.
I wish I could rate this 4.5. The product itself deserves top honors, but the applicator is a brush instead of a sponge-tip, and isn't very workable. It can't be used like a concealer brush because it picks up too much product--more than a sponge tip would pick up. So I just dot some on with the tip of the brush, like I would with a sponge-tip, and then blend (quickly).
Speaking of blending--in spite of the name, this is not a "super-blendable" product, nor did I expect it to be. I got this because the Paula's Choice radio show said it was the closest thing to PC's discontinued No-Slip Concealer. I seem to have been the only person who bought that product, but I loved it and went through many tubes. Like the No-Slip Concealer, the L'Oreal True Match is a liquid concealer that works best on oilier skin. You have to blend quickly before it dries, but it stays in place well, including on eyelids. I have the lightest neutral shade, which is a good match for me. (I used to wear the PC concealer in Ivory Beige.)
My only other gripe with it is that you get less product for the price than with the old PC concealer, but hey, inflation will get us all.
Man I seem to be a junkie for drugstore products lately! I have been searching for a passable drugstore concealer for so long and this just might be it. I believe the shade I got was for neutral undertones and was the lightest shade in that category and it does live up to its name of probably being the truest match of any face product I have ever found. The concealer comes in a small jar with a brush applicator and is a very creamy consistency. I really love this concealer for under my eyes, it just brightens the area so well and covers up any dark circles. As for blemishes though, I did find that it stuck to them a bit and did not accentuate or make them look really bad, it just didn't really make them look a whole lot nicer. I did find that after about 6 hours, you did need to touch up the concealer. Overall, I really didn't mid this product but one thing I absolutely hated about it was how messy the little tube gets! Nearly every time I close up the tube, product spills out down the sides which isn't ideal because you're losing some of the product. I would repurchase if I was not in a situation when I could buy my beloved EL Double Wear Concealer.
love how its a brush and not a doe foot (lip gloss like applicator)
its actually really great
it provides a natural (not matte and not dewy) finish
covers everything really nicely
buildable medium coverage, not cakey, light, doesnt oxidize, lasts all day and doesnt look like a weird color when worn under natural light
i cant really think of any
and i tried really hard
maybe that OH it dries fast so dont put it all over then blend
do a section at a time :)
Hate the packaging. Concealer squishes out of the tube when putting the brush back in wasting SO much product and causing a gross mess! Concealer is O.K. Giving med-light coverage. Even though the product isn't horrible, I wouldn't buy this product again just because of the poor packaging.
I don't often use concealers unless I have a **ahem** monthly blemish. What I like about L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Concealer: not too thick consistency, blends well, a little goes a long way, it sticks really well to the skin. What I don't like about it: Can apply heavy if you're not careful (I would apply w/ a brush or a damp sponge). Overall, I really liked this product.
I have mixed feelings about this concealer. I have been using Dior for years but after they discontinued their hydrating concealer I've been looking for a replacement. True Match from LOreal is much cheaper and I decided to give it a try as I liked the True Match foundation. The shades are nice and the liquid concealer is creamy enough for it not to be runny. It does not make me break out or dry out my skin, but I'm not satisfied as it doesn't cover my dark circles. It feels and look more like a foundation, and it does not give better coverage than an ordinary foundation. I probably won't buy this again..
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 :(
