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.
perfect for my indian skin tone. i can find the perfect shade in a drugstore anywhere. comes with a brush applicator that is easy to apply. but blending must be done by the warmth of your fingers. light tapping is sufficient to blend in. coverage is not the best, but then i dont have a lot to conceal. i wouldn't, therefore, recommend this for anyone with heavy under-eye circles. good for spot coverage. small enough to carry in a travelling makeup kit.
i finally pulled this baby out to try it out! the reason why is i had purchased it when i saw it randomly on clearance at walmart sitting there by itself for $4 plus i had a $1 off coupon for a loreal cosmetic so i decided $3 was def worth the shot. I finally tried it and heres what i think:
This normally runs anywhere around $6-7 in drugstores. I think its a tad overpriced for the product but its not too bad. You can find this wherever your Loreal products are sold like Walmart, Target, as well as Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS. This concealer is normally available around the True Match Foundations/powders and blush groups.
I purchased mine in C1-cool light meaning the lightest shade in the Cool range. What i love about this whole True Match line is the wide range of shades, more than typical brands. i actually love the Cool 1 shade since its actually a cool toned pinkish shade that is light enough for even my vampire like skin :) which is for real one of the rarest things. This formula is rather nice. I like that is a med coverage concealer, with a bit of a brightening property to it. How i use this more liquid concealers is pairing them or using them to top my creamier concealers. So on its own it wont cover all imperfections or under eye circles a 100% but around 80%. it does take away redness and unevenness. This applies so easily and i love to blend it out with my fingers or a synthetic brush. The formula spreads and covers. have not had any problems with settling into fine lines or wrinkles, it covered pores, hasnt clinged to dry spots. some concealers can be too thick & cake up- this is just the right consistency that it covers and blends without caking. and it covers enough for me that it looks natural. it has a natural finish- nothing to matte or glowy. I really do like it! i use it paired with a thicker/creamier concealer for my awful darkened blue purple undereye circles and it covers & brightens the area just enough for my liking to be natural.
this comes in hard plastic tube like lip gloss does. its see thru with a silver twist on top with wand. the wand applicator is a plastic/synthetic hair bristle wand. (also like some lip glosses) its not bad but its not hygienic but what product is anymore? how i use it is i dab it from the brush onto under eye area and then use my ring finger to tap and blend it. you could also dab some onto dish/hand that way you are preventing cross contamination. i will use a separate brush to place this on any blemishes or pimples so that im not sticking this brush onto blemishes & then sticking it right back into the concealer. it could be cleaned as well pretty easily since its synthetic and plastic. i like the simple packaging and the brush/applicator isnt too bad either. its not a doe foot applicator like most of my liquid like concealers. its unique in my collection. make sure to close this properly to prevent this from drying out.
a pretty great concealer! better than some concealers ive tried. it covers my circles, redness and blemishes. esp if you use it as a topping concealer like i do. i know some may want to skip that step so if used alone, it works pretty well too. it wont cover everything 100% but i have found if you want full coverage from a concealer, tube/wand concealers are typically more of a liquid and will only provide light to medium coverage. Would i buy this again? Right now, yes i would. since its finally a concealer thats light enough (esp since its suggested to go a shade or 2 lighter than skin tone for triangle area below eyes well that was impossible except for this) so if you like the Cool 1 foundation from Loreal True Match line, this is a great pair! the shade is almost the shade just a tad lighter so it works well together! ill update once i use this up more. continued >>
This is an okay concealer. It has light to medium coverage, but i do prefer medium to full so thats why I wasnt so happy with it. I appreciate very much that there is a range of colors to choose from, and that IS why I bought it in the first place. Just dont expect something fullcoverage.
