L’oreal True Match Super Blendable Multi-Use Concealer
L’Oreal adds to its concealer lineup with True Match Super Blendable Multi-Use Concealer, a worthy—though not perfect—option for those with oily to combination skin.
The packaging for this fragrance-free concealer is a slim plastic tube with a click-pen dispenser, and a small round sponge at the end.
The sponge allows you to gently dot concealer where needed (especially under eyes) but isn’t the best for blending (it isn’t firm enough to work the product into skin), so it’s best to use your fingers or another sponge instead.
That aside, this provides buildable medium to full coverage of dark circles, redness, and other imperfections. By the way, when it comes to claims that this is the brand’s first “multi-editing concealer,” that’s marketing hype. Most good concealers can serve double or even triple duty, it’s certainly nothing new! L’Oreal’s original True Match Concealer is brilliant for this!
Another note: L’Oreal claims this contains a “serum” of glycerin and the peptide Haloxyl, and while both those ingredients are present here, they’re in nowhere close to a concentration to qualify as a serum-like skin care product. L’Oreal also says this can treat blemishes, but the brand is referring to concealing acne marks and brown spots, not actually treating acne itself, so keep that in mind.
True Match Super Blendable Multi-Use Concealer sets to a natural-looking matte finish that’s best for those with oily to combination skin; those with any dryness will find this emphasizes any areas of dryness. As far as wear time, this doesn’t budge, even during a full day of wear. It begins to crease a little toward the end of its wear time, though this can be blended out relatively easily.
Overall, even though there are a couple of issues with this concealer, it’s one of L’Oreal’s better options.
- Buildable medium to full coverage.
- Sets to a natural-looking matte finish.
- Doesn’t fade during its wear time.
- Fragrance free.
- Applicator is fine for applying, but not good for blending.
- Creases toward the end of its wear time.
