L'oreal Paris true match super-blendable concealer

Friday, April 24, 2015

I like reading classic novels and Jane Austen Novel et moi are a true match. Northanger Abbey being one of my favorite.
Now coming to the topic of concealers, let me tell you, it is something I just cannot live without. I have an oily acne prone o skin so camouflaging the scars requires some attention. Hence the concealers I require must be of full coverage and non comedogenic. I found two which fits this category, one is Colorbar Pot concealer which I so did not like at all and L'oreal Paris true match super-blendable concealer.


Is this Concealer and me a true match...
The company speaks ~Super Blendable concealer perfectly conceals acne, blemishes and dark under eye circles leaving the skin nourished and protected. Discover your true match from amongst 3 flawless shades. They claim this to be Oil-free and non-comedogenic. Does not clog pores.

Ingredients: 
AQUA / WATER / EAU • CYCLOPENTASILOXANE • HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE • GLYCERIN SORBITAN ISOSTEARATE • PROPYLENE GLYCOL • TITANIUM DIOXIDE • OZOKERITE • PHENOXYETHANOL • MAGNESIUM SULFATE • DISTEARDIMONIUM HECTORITE • DISODIUM STEAROYL GLUTAMATE • METHYLPARABEN • ACRYLATES COPOLYMER • BUTYLPARABEN ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE • ALUMINA • MAGNESIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE • CALCIUM PANTETHEINE SULFONATE • DEXTRAN SULFATE • SILICA 

[+/- MAY CONTAIN : CI 77891 / TITANIUM DIOXIDE • CI 77499, CI 77492, CI 77491 / IRON OXIDES MICA ]

Note : The product does not contain any ingredients list. As the product in Made in USA, the above ingredients are taken from the L'oreal Paris USA site. Hopefully the product is made of these ingredients.


The concealer comes in a lip gloss like packaging, a plastic tube with a brush applicator. The brush has very smooth bristles which makes it easier to apply to every corner of your face. The consistency is like highly pigmented thick liquid foundation, not a very runny one. In India only three shades are available, but the shades are perfect for Indian skin tone. 


For my skin tone I have the medium/deep N6-7-8, the neutral shade. I cleanse, tone and moisturize my skin, dab concealer on my imperfections and blend it with my finger tips lightly. I allow the concealer to set for sometimes before applying foundation. The concealer gives medium to full coverage for my acne scars, full coverage for the other areas which requires concealing, like the inner corner of my nose, eye area etc. When I want to keep things light, I just apply the concealer alone without any foundation and brush on some translucent powder from Kryolan ( more on that later). I have noticed that the concealer gives dewy effect after 1-2 hours but does starts to fade a bit after 4-5 hours. If you use a lot of product you will find it settling on fine lines after 4-5 hours. This has not caused me any breakouts.

Price: Rs 895/-
Quantity : 5.2 ml
Shelf Life : 2.5 years
Availability : Easily available in any beauty store and online.

The Goodies:
  • Super easy to blend
  • Provides medium to full coverage
  • Staying power of average 4-5 hours
  • Oil free and Non Comedogenic
  • Did not cause any breakout
  • The applicator is good and handy
The Baddies:
  • Contains parabens
  • The package contains no ingredients list
  • Will not cover very dark scars.
  • Will settle in fine lines.
  • A little pricey for the quantity given.
Hence: Yes, this concealer and me are a true match. It gives me the coverage that I require, and does not break me out. I have been using this for quite some time now. And once I am done with this tube, I would definitely re-purchase this again.

Love and kisses,
