Lately, i have been going crazy in the CVS down the street from my house. I have bought and returned so much make up im starting to believe the people who work there hate me for the inconvenience i pose on them. ANYWAYS! I decided to try a new concealer because ive been using the same one for years (from Almay) and I thought maybe it was time for a change. So i went and purchased three other, and horrible, concealers before i landed upon this one... which i absolutely adore! i love how its a little brush rather than a sponge applicator (if you know what i mean). It makes it so much nice to apply to the bags i get under my eyes from lack of sleep due to being a college student. But also i have a lot of red scars from acne and still suffer from stupid stress breakouts so having a good concealer is really vital for me. i like this one a lot because it blends nicely with the foundation i use and looks good under the powder i set my face with. The only thing i hate about this is the packaging. But that's what you get for a liquid concealer. i would recommend this product to people with mild acne, stress acne, and bags. And i will definitely purchase this product again. :)
I've been on a huge drug store kick lately and it's been fun lol. This concealer is a great match for my skin. I got c1,2,3 I think it is. In foundation I am CS nude beige, maybelline SS sand beige, L'oreal 146 nude beige I think, and MAC nw20. It blends very well and used lighty doesnt cake. Makes my under eyes look moist too which I like. Does well on my dark circles but I dont know about pimples because I don't have any to conceal at the moment.
I'm not big on concealer because I don't have many problem areas.. except under my eyes. I have big RED circles under my eyes like the Arab I am. This baby hides them, stays on, no problems whatsoever. I love all of L'Oreal true match. No need to buy some high-end concealer. This does the job perfectly.
Great product! I have super dark circles around my eyes and this concealer comes in a wide variety of shades. Your shade is very easy to find and I wear a Light in the warm family. This concealer does do everything it claims, its very blendable and gives full coverage.
Finally found a concealer I can re-purchase!
Wow, I am really surprised at all the negative reviews. What's really cool about this concealer is that it has shades for warm, neutral, and cool undertones. This is awesome for my dark circles. I wear the shade fair/light warm. Cool is pink toned so it would also work on my dark circles but not on the rest of my face. I have been using this for about 12 yrs. on and off. The fact that it doesn't crease and settle into fine lines (which I don't have many of, but ALL concealers seem to totally accentuate them) is huge for me. A little bit goes a long way. One of these tubes lasts forever. The price does seem to be going up and up on it tho. I believe last time I purchased it was at WalMart, and it was still upwards of 11 bucks.. And as far as HE, this beats out Erase Paste and LM Secret Camoflauge, for my undereyes, NOT for blemishes. I don't like thick and cakey concealers like them, they settle into fine lines like nobody's business. With a primer, this one doesn't settle into my fine lines too badly at all.
that "true match" claim is a total scam.
i have very oily, acne prone skin. so i have big trouble with concealers oxidizing and rubbing off on me... this product is no different.
first of all, the selection is limited to 3 or 4 shades per undertone.
all this thing really is, is colored cream. oily colored cream. it had ok-coverage, but most of it sloughed off in a matter of minutes even with powder.
what remained would change color so that i had weird blotches by the afternoon.
it also feels terrible on my face. then again, putting thick, oily products on my already oily face, is never pleasant. surprisingly, it didnt break me out.. so for that, it gets 2 lippies.
I use this stuff for dark undereye circles and blotchy patches of skin on my cheeks. I tried it on a breakout once, and WOW! I regret it. I settled aroung the pimple and made it stand out even more. OK on with the review! -
It lives up to it's name. This stuff is super blendable. The colour I have, Fair/Light Neutral N 1-2-3 or something, is slightly to dark for my skin tone but with a bit of blending it still looks natural.
That being said the coverage at first is very moderate, but still buildable maybe up to medium coverage. It also settles into fine lines after not even 10 minutes if you don't set it, yes I'm young but I still have lines around my eyes. It also makes skin look super oily if you don't set it.
Overall I rate it a 3, because it's great on uneven skin and looks natural. It's not getting any more than 3 lippies because of the horrible packaging (it's impossible not to get concealer all over the tube,) and because it settles into lines and makes skin look oily if not finished properly. Pretty good with un-puffy undereye circles though. Yes, I MIGHT buy this again, not sure yet.
This looks ssooooo cakey! And L'oreal tests on animals.
This is my secret weapon. When I have dark circles, or a zit, or whatever... this magical potion covers it up so fast and so well that no one knows I'm wearing makeup. I've had a few friends watch me apply it and comment about it's magical ability to even out my skin completely without being at all obvious. I wear the fair/light neutral and it's perfect for my fair neutral toned skin. It doesn't sink into lines or make dry areas look flaky. The texture is between foundation and liquid makeup. I like the brush but I just take the product from the wand & apply it with my fingers so it's easier to blend.
I am a drugstore make up addict and I recently picked this one up to give it a try.
Loved how it managed to conceal most of my dark eye circles with one application, without building on layers.It worked well for red spots too! Price is still reasonable!
