This is definitely a product that’s loved by many so it’s no surprise that when the L’Oreal Paris True Match Concealer was 40% off at Priceline I decided to pick it up. Previously all reviews I’ve heard about it were that it was good for covering the under eye area (my biggest concern) and easy to use.
I have to say I do agree with those points. The pigmentation to start is definitely there. Although I still might use a corrector if I wanted a perfect under eye area, for every day it worked really well. It’s also very light and so it doesn’t look heavy or cakey under the eye, even though I have super dry skin and so generally concealer can get tacky under the eye.
I really liked the L’Oreal True Match applicator, it’s a flat foam tip which is easy to manoeuvre and gets a good amount of product out. The consistency of the concealer is quite wet which makes it easy to spread and blend it, ensuring a little goes a long way.
However, I do unfortunately have to say that after a couple of tries I stopped using it and will probably not use it again. This is due to the fact that there seems to be a very high level of some form of alcohol present in the product, which is also evident by the strong alcohol smell in the concealer. The smell doesn’t linger and as such I could look past it, however it did irritate my waterline incredibly, making it very red and blown up. It could be that I had the reaction to a different ingredient, but I have never encountered the problem previously, yet every time I used this concealer it did resurface.
Although the L’Oreal True Match concealer overall is a seemingly good concealer, I don’t want to have irritated eyes each time I use it so I will definitely be passing from now on.
Have you tried the True Match before? What did you think?
