My experience with L’Oreal True Match Super-blendable Concealer – Light/Medium:-
L’Oreal True Match Super-blendable Concealer is a concealer in liquid form with medium-thin texture which isn’t runny and gives a hassle-free application. I dab it and swipe the brush on my under eye area and then work it out with finger tips. The texture is medium –creamy which glides nicely and the light-weight formula blends super-quickly into the skin. It matches my skin tone perfectly and never looks ashy or turns grey giving an illusion of even deeper dark under-eyes, the problem I faced with my Garnier Tinted Under-eye Roll on. The amount can be easily controlled with the brush applicator but even if applied excessively it doesn’t look overboard and can be blended a bit more till it disappear into the skin.
The concealer sets to comfortable matte finish and as I have dry lids so don’t feel the need to set it with powder but super-oily lids can go head and set it with a powder. It doesn’t provide full-coverage but I don’t have deep dark circles and it works nicely for my medium dark under eye area providing light-medium coverage which I prefer for everyday look. I like the natural finish it provides, giving a brightened under-eye look instantly.
The concealer stays put whole day for me and I haven’t experienced any creasing even for 6-7 hours but by the end of the day it starts setting in fine lines but still doesn’t look that bad. I usually don’t go out but sit in office under AC 9 to 5 ;), so can’t comment on its outdoor performance.
Other than under-eyes, I tested it for concealing facial area like acne makes, uneven skin tone and I am so glad to say that it did a fabulous job at that front too. It works well at hiding the uneven skin tone, reducing redness and makes the pores nearly vanish giving a silky smooth, younger looking skin ;). My pores aren’t too large but yes it covered whatever I have.

Recommendation:- L’Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Concealer in Light/Medium is priced on the higher side but seeing the results I would say its totally worth it. The brush applicator is easy to use and the shade is a pretty good match for me. It blends really well into my skin covering up the dark under eye skin (not completely though). I also tested it on acne marks, redness around nose, open pores and it worked wonderfully on all of these giving a super-smooth, even toned skin. The formula just sinks into the skin covering the problematic areas. It sets to a comfortable matte finish so dry skin should moisturize the area before hand for an effortless blending, Oily skin will need to set it with a powder.
If you are usually worried about concealer getting cakey then give this a shot, it doesn’t know anything about that. A great daily wear concealer, Recommended!
