• L'Oreal True Match Concealer

    IMG_7883.jpg
    I had a bit of a panic the other day because both my concealer and my powder ~ my two MAIN makeup products both ran out, legit at the same time. I was just like “Are you kidding me?!?”. I swear, SWEAR this always happens to me, EVERY SINGLE TIME I run out of anything it all goes at once. Are you trying to bankrupt me?!
    Anyway so I went into town and for some reason decided that I wanted to try something different. I just love the feeling when you find a new and exciting product that you can then use for agessss, so I decided to go with L’Oreal because they had a 3 for 2 deal which I thought was a #bargaiinnnnn and I picked up the True Match Concealer. But…. BUT….. I am sorta regretting it. Before I say anything else I love L’Oreal as a brand and I love the matching foundation to this concealer so no hard feelings right?!
    I thought I was being a remembering genius in the store and just picked my concealer based on what I thought the shade was that I had in the foundation – turns out I got the shade two times lighter than I actually am but THAT’S OKAY because I am as pale as a ghost anyway at the moment!
    I am not a fan of this concealer. I am just throwing that out there. I am still going to use it though and try to work around it and you never know I might start liking it, however firstly it has a very strong chemical smell to it. I mentioned something similar like this about a mascara I have used before but I was like WOW L’Oreal where has this come from? To put it exact it smelt of nail varnish and nail varnish remover. Just makes me a little skeptical about what is in the product to make it smell like that because I obviously put it near my eye-ball region.
    One thing I do like about this concealer is that it is very light, so won’t crease heavily under the eyes when wearing it and doesn’t feel cakey. I love a good full coverage concealer but I don’t like the fake look either. However because it is very light it is a very sheer concealer – I didn’t feel like it covered my dark circles fully. When I first apply it, it almost looks like it starts drying and going clear almost. I have tried putting two layers on and that seems to work though.
    I do like the application of this concealer, I don’t know why it just feels really satisfying and I like the wand that it has. However the coverage of the actual concealer is quite poor. Like I said it is sheer so you have to apply a lot of it. If you are looking for a full coverage concealer then this is not for you.
    However if you are blessed by the lovely skin gods and just want a concealer that patches you up slightly then this is perfffffecccccctttttt for you! It is really easy to blend thought which just saves me so much time in the morning when I am running half an hour late as per….!
    Have you ever tried this concealer?

      I have the matching foundation to this concealer and I really like it so I was thinking about trying this concealer but if it’s quite sheer then I don’t think I will. This concealer would probably be amazing if you’re blessed with clear skin but I’ve been loving the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer recently because it has good coverage and it’s really cheap! xxx

      Ugh I hate it when makeup products have strong chemical scents. I once tried these milani blushes and it just smelled fake. Like plastic. Even though it looked pretty, I kept thinking about what I was putting on my skin.

      I love the matching foundation (pun) that goes with this! Sadly enough, the concealer isn’t available in my country :(. Loved this post! xxx
