This is an excellent concealer that I seem to *always* forget about, then when I dig through my makeup stash and re-find 1-2 times a year, I remember how amazing it is!!
For reference I'm 30 with fair, warm, oily, acne prone skin (also with jumbo sized pores, and terribly dark undereye circles -lucky me)
I have the shade "light" and it's a perfect match for my NC15 skin (even under the eyes where I need it to be a bit lighter which is a surprise because I usually need powders to be called "fair" or "porcelain" to work on my pale skin, but Light, is perfection :D)
I first purchased this in 2010 at my local RiteAid for around $10 USD which is a tad on the high side for a drugstore concealer, but it's definately worth the price. When I initially purchased it I was absolutely smitten in love, used it daily(and A LOT), so repurchased a back-up when I noticed myself getting a little low (because it seems everything I love from the ds gets discontinued Lol)
Over the past two years though I've also fallen in love with the Maybelline Age Rewind Eraser for Dark Circles and more recently the Dream Lumi pen, and these concealers are also really great quality, awesome for covering every hint of my undereye darkness, but they are also very brightening for my undereye area, so when I need the brightening effects toned down a little or to cover a blemish(anything other than the undereye area) -Then those Maybelline products aren't the best things to reach for, and that's where this True Match Naturale concealer comes in.
As I said above, this gets shuffled to the bottom of my things from time to time and I forget I even have it. I recently re-found it and didn't expect much since I've purchased BE's Bisque since the last time I used it, but in my personal experience, this covers and blends much better than Bisque. Most powder concealers tend to settle into lines, have a dry/patchy look, or not cover well. -L'oreal TrueMatch Naturale concealer is NONE of those things and it blows my mind over and over again every time I use it!
I whipped it out again over the past month or so, now that the weather is changing from humid summer to dry winter, it wrecks havoc on my skin and the majority of concealers that I own get dry/uneven/patchy under my eyes, this has been the only concealer that's been working well for me since the change in the weather.
It also causes zero breakouts when I use it to conceal other areas of my face so I've found it to be absolutely *perfect* for those "no makeup days" where you don't have time to (or just don't need/want to) do a full face of makeup, but still want/need to cover flaws. I've used this for that purpose by itself, or under a pressed powder. It blends so well and stays put, it's perfect for just about any way you'd need to use a concealer.
As far as the attached brush.. I'm not sure how I feel about it - It's def. not the *best* brush for great application, but I do have this in my purse and have applied it in a pinch with that attached brush and it does the job so the brush isn't completely useless -which I like because I get irritated when products include brushes/sponges that get in the way more than anything else and just won't work for proper application.
Overall I'd highly recommend this to anyone because it works for me in the middle of summer on my mega oily skin as well as the cooler weather when my skin is dehydrated. It has any level of coverage without looking cakey, so will work for whatever coverage I'm looking for -This is definately a HG concealer and I'll continue to repurchase :)

i love this, its really covers up red marks. never had a bad reaction such as sensitivity or breakouts. i just wish you either got more or it cost less. because for a drugstore concealer paying $11 after tax seems really high. but it does work... i don't try it for my eyes though because i have never found a concealer formula that doesn't make them look "old" (im only 22). i'd rather look tired than wrinkly and dry. also i think the packaging is kind of stupid.

I wanted a lighter-feeling undereye concealer for the long hot summer, so tried this in 'Light'. The shade was right, but for an undereye concealer, it failed. No matter how I tried applying it, it gave little coverage, settled into fine lines and made me look older. I tried applying it on bare skin, over a moisturizer, and with the concealer brush dampened. The results were the same, just ugly. I have a few very fine lines, but they usually disappear with a concealer, not get worse.
When I used it with a concealer brush on only the inside of my eye where it is darkest, it was okay, altho the coverage was inadequate.
The packaging was only a minor annoyance, as I sprinkled a bit at a time onto the back of my hand, then used my own brush to apply.
So much for the eye area. When I used a brush to apply this to other areas, such as a little bruised spot near my neck, it worked better. However, this concealer won't cover very dark areas well, and its coverage is not especially long lasting. . . . . oh well :(
IMO, a separate category for only "Undereye Concealers" should be created, for those of us problematic dark undereye circles we are faced with no matter how much sleep we manage to get. A concealer for the undereye area has to meet so many additional demands as to eye sensitivity and texture for that delicate area. It's hard to find a good one when experiences are so mixed because many use a concealer for blemishes or other wholly different imperfections.

My favorite concealer. I use it around my eyes to appear brighter. And sometimes for pimples too. It works perfectly. It sits well on the skin.

You do brighten my day, yes. I am now on my second bottle, which simply means you are wonderful in every respect. Mixed with the proper moisturizer, my fickle flaws remain happily hidden to the world. How dainty.

I have this in "Light" and "Medium Light" shades.
I find them slightly sheerer and not as finely milled as other Mineral Concealer powders I've used. A bit more drying. Caked on if you use too much.
I will use this on random days, but I prefer my mineralpuremakeup Yellow and Green correctors for the darker undereye days.
I have to say, the packaging is handy to contain a nice brush like that.
But It's a bit of a stretch on time to unscrew the top of it, and then pop the cap off , as you always end up with a bit of powder flying off the bottom of the brush. And then to sift just the right amount in the jar.

I love this concealer! I am very pale but I use self tanners, so I bought this in the color Light. (which is the second lightest color, the lightest being Fair/Light.)
I have no dark circles or bags under my eyes, so I can't personally review it for covering that up.
first I use my Smashbox foundation primer, then I use this to cover up all my acne, acne scars, and scabs (yuck!) it gives GREAT coverage, even alone. then on top, I apply my liquid foundation. one word; flawless. it covers up every single red mark and it's just GREAT.
I find I don't get such a great result though, if I don't use my primer first. so that may be something to keep in mind.
the packaging sucks and I find that I spill product every time I use it. it's also expensive for a drugstore concealer, I believe I bought mine for $11. BUT, I use it every single time I apply makeup, and I have tons left. I feel as though it's going to last a very long time. If you use it under your eyes, you'll probably go through the product much quicker, making $11 expensive for a drugstore concealer.
will re-buy and re-buy!

I was very impressed with this product. I've never used a powder concealer before, so I was hesitant. However this stuff works awesome. The brush/packaging is great, the brush is closed off and not stuck in the makeup. This concealer blends right in, does not look cakey, and successfully covers zits/scars. I only dot conceal, and it blends right in. It also lasts all day, i've biked in it, sweat in it, went camping in it, got rained in it, etc. I bought it mostly because it's the most natural drugstore concealer you can get according to cosmeticdatabase.com. I think it's a bit pricey, however (about $12) but it should last a long time, you literally only need a granule to cover a zit since it's so pigmented.

overall it was good.
brings alot of light into the face.
looks natural covers well.
the only problem is getting the right shade.

I have never had luck with concealers,but I LOVE this one!It covers under eye circles,redness,blemishes and those ugly red lines I get on the side of my nose that stick out on my pale skin.It stays all day and does not break me out which I have a problem with when it comes to face products.The packaging and brush are horrible.I use a small,short eyeliner brush and use little swirling motions and everything is covered up.It is quite pricey so I wait and get my back ups during a BOGO.Last time I stocked up on this and the foundation powder that is in the same line for $15.00.

Probably the best concealer I have ever used. It's a little messy to use, but it doesn't make the lines under my eyes so noticeable as other concealers usually do. It brightens my eyes and looks as though I don't even have any concealer on at all. It's also a great eyes shadow primer!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I used this under my eyes at first- but I think it works much better on zits. It kind of accentuates lines and just looks like powder sitting on my face when I use it under the eyes. as a zit concealer it works- but i wish it wouldnt come off so easy! it rubs right off on me. the packaging is so so for me. sometimes the powder does fall out, but the built in brush is good, and also its easy to pick how much product you want to put on. This stuff is also good when you need to cover up quickly- it doesnt take a lot of blending as liquids do. i will probably repurchase.

This provides a natural look and covers my redness and large spots.
This is not cakey or thick it is a light powder formula that is buildable and i you use your finger (keep it clean so as not to add bacteria on your skin) rather than the brush (helpful but not as great).
Sure it needs a top top after a couple of hours..but it does look natural.
Mind you I will be honest that the L'oreal minerals foundation - also a powder formula works betters as a concealer.
Now back to the loreal minerals concealer - this powder does have a highlighting effect that does detract away from the spots ans redness. It does cover but needs a couple of dabs on the areas of concern. I use th e loreal minearls foundation all over and then dab concealer as a touch up on areas of concern. When you have mega raised areas the powder certainly makes them loos a little flatter but dab it over a few times to make it look seamless. Both the minearals foundation and concealer work together to give a flawless face and believe me I really do breakout and get dry skin and this even looks fab on dry skin as it doesnt make my skin feel tight it somehow helps it. This concealer also does not make me break out. These mineral products from L'oreal are a revelation in the makeup world I truly cannot be without these prodcust so I pray they are not discontniued.
I once heard you could sleep in mineral makeup and that it is good for your skin. I havent tried it but somehow I can feel the benefits of less breakouts. But I think the range of eyeshadow colours in the minerals collection is limited so I opt for other brands...
This product will certainly be a handbag staple so long as L'oreal continue with it...

i really love this product. It's the best thing I've found for under eye circles. It's like 12 dollars at walmart. i dont really like the packaging, it could be better b/c it kind of falls out when you go to use it.but the built in brush is really good. I go through about one a month but i wear makeup everyday and i always use this product. the circles under my eyes are so dark and you would never know with this concealer

I was quite skeptical when I decided to buy a powdered concealer.. it was around $9 or $10 at the time, i think.. I know I would not have paid more than that for it. When I tried it, I loved it! I was originally using a liquid foundation then a setting powder then this over it.. and it worked well. I now use a powder mineral foundation and use this over it as well and it still works great. I have had it for a while now.. a year or so, i believe.. i only wear makeup 3 times a week, if that.. and use this product maybe half the time.. but still, it was a good deal for under 10 bucks.. i would highly recommend it to someone just looking to cover up some blemishes now and then.

Like its foundation counterpart, this shit is expensive. Damn, $11 CAN for one teensy little pot that always spills over each and every time I open it? Better be good.
And it was okay. It was very easy to apply, and I had more success covering my mild breakouts than cream or liquid versions. However, it seemed to be only an extension of the foundation counterpart, not offering any extra coverage. Kind of a waste of money, really.

This is my alternate go-to concealer than Everyday Minerals' 'Multitasking'... I prefer the EM. It comes with SO MUCH more, covers a lot better, and is way cheaper! I'd only buy this again if I wanted to spend 12 bucks on a less spectacular version of Multitasking without waiting for the shipment to come in the mail :) Anyway, onto the review:
- The brush is soft and silky and kinda thin... Works BEAUTIFULLY for covering under eye circle or blemishes! Use the flat part to smooth and pat the concealer onto under eyes or zits, or use the tip of the brush to pin point it exactly where you want it, and then blend with the flat part :)
- The color is actually a bit lighter than it looks from the package. I was a little hesitant in trying out the 'light' shade since I'm usually more fair-skinned, but I opted for the 'light' since it was yellow-toned. 'fair' was more beige-pink toned. Luckily, it turned out to actually be about 2 shades lighter than it looks before opening it! Perfect for me!
- coverage was almost medium... it works really well on flat dark marks or around your nose/mouth area,
In the end, you should just be patient and order the full size concealer from EM! This is almost as good, very close! But it is SO RIDICULOUSLY expensive for a tiny, drugstore concealer. The Everyday Minerals FREE SAMPLE is the size of this thing! the full size of EM concealer is only 8 bucks! I WOULD buy it again since it's so portable, convenient, and I'm impatient when it comes to waiting for things in the mail.

I can't figure out the mineral bandwagon - and this product is no different. I have fair skin and this concealer did not conceal anything. I tried applying both before and after foundation and got the same results....blah.
If someone could please recommend a good foundation for acne scars I'd be forever grateful! Thanks.

This has been the best product I have found thus far to cover up my dark under-eye circles. It doesn't cake or crease up on my lower lid like creme or liquid concealers do, and it seems to last a bit longer as well. I just wish the packaging were a little better-- if I carry this around in a bag the sifter portion gets a lot of powder in it, which spills out. I really like the brush, though.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
This is just like BE's bisque concealer, but better. For a powder based product, this really covers beautifully and delivers a very natural and flattering finish, without that tell-tale streaking that some have. I love all the Bare Naturale products and this sure doesn't disappoint! Great product!
