L’OREAL PARIS true match Super Blendable concealer : Review, Swatch

May 22, 2014

Hi Girls,

Today I am reviewing L’OREAL PARIS true match Super Blendable corrector/concealer. I discovered this product accidentally and have been using it since then. Yeah this has has been on my top favorite list since past six months and you will know WHY in a bit. It is a liquid concealer and I never thought liquid concealers could work well until I got my hands on this one. I have been using stick and cream concealers before this. So .. Let us begin with the review laugh

My Experience

I have this concealer in Light/Medium Neutral N4-5 which is somewhat peachish in color (Check out the benefits of peach or orange tone concealers next) If you look at the picture above you may find this color pretty odd for my skin tone, but it is a perfect shade for concealing any blemishes or dark circles on my face. Since I have an acne prone and super oily skin, I don’t like to use many products on my face and that is when you need a concealer like this.It has a medium consistency and it is light weight, oil free and very easy to blend.It doesn’t break me out and doesn’t irritate my skin at all . It doesn’t have a strong smell to it either so that is a plus . I don’t use any foundation with it. I just moisturize, apply concealer wherever needed, and set my entire face with a pressed powder.I have not too dark undereye circles so I don’t need a heavy coverage there but when I apply this concealer ,it instantly brightens up my under eye area .

The brush applicator makes the application quick ,easy  and effortless without wasting a lot of product. Its buildable and provides moderate coverage without leaving the skin dry and flaky . A little is enough to cover my acne spots and blemishes, However, if you apply too much product and if you have oily skin like me, it may settle in the fine lines and look cakey. So if you use a lot, you probably need a setting spray or primer with it. The not so good thing about this concealer is that it doesn’t last for long by which I mean it stays up to 5-6 hours (yeah !! that is less for me :P )  and then starts fading out. For people with dry or normal skin ,I think it might stay a little longer. All in all , I like this concealer ignoring the fact that it slides off in some hours ,because it really does an amazing job at concealing scars and blemishes. I find it a little pricey though for the quantity of the product.I only wish Loreal had given it for less sad

Buy it here  . They have 20 % discount on this concealer. So you get it for just Rs 700 laugh

 

Benefits of Peach tone concealer :

  • if you have an olive skintone or just really bad, really dark circles with bluish undertones, then the most effective way of covering them up is by applying an orange concealer.
  • Peachy-toned concealer can combat ashiness in medium to dark skin tones
  • Dealing with hyperpigmentation, freckles or age spots. Just apply a pecach color corrector and see them vanish ;)

 

How to Use :

  • Dot concealer onto blemish or under-eye circles.
  • Using your finger, gently tap concealer into skin until fully blended. Repeat for fuller coverage.
  • For a professional-looking application, use a concealer brush to blend concealer.
  • To set concealer , dust translucent powder or any your favorite setting powder on top of concealer.

Watch on YouTube : Loreal Paris true match Super Blendable concealer Heart Test

Heart Test ? You might be thinking  “Now what is it ? ” . This is a video I made for you guys to see the coverage provided by this concealer. And for this I just made a small heart on my arm with a brown eye pencil and applied this product over it. See for yourself how it turned out smile

 

 

POSITIVES

  • Compact Packaging hence travel friendly.
  • Light weight and non greasy.
  • Easy to blend.
  • Doesn’t irritate skin or break me out.
  • Nice natural Finish.
  • Doesn’t make skin dry or flaky.
  • No wastage of product .

 

NEGATIVES

  • Not Long Lasting.
  • If you have oily skin you need to set it well otherwise it washes out.
  • Need not to say.. PRICE .. too much for 5.2ml

 

What would I Rate it?

4/5

 

Will I repurchase ?

Yes, and I have already repurchased it twice laugh I find it nice as it feels like you are not wearing a lot of makeup on your skin. The only thing that needs to be taken care of is to set it well with a setting powder , a translucent powder or a setting spray whatever you prefer.

 

Do I recommend?

Those of you who have a normal or dry skin must give it a try. It will work great for you guys. For those who have oily skin, you may or may not like it. I personally like it despite having oily skin because it gives good coverage and a natural glow to my face.

 

I hope you find this review helpful. Let me know what do you feel about it? Will you buy it ? YES , NO , MAYBE ?? Love to hear from you.

Cheers laugh
