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?
