I’ve been stuck on some pretty high-end concealer favorites for a while, and now that I’m running low on those I decided to give some good ol drug store brands a shot and see if they stand up to the test!
First up, L’Oreals new True Match Super Blendable Crayon Concealer!
I like to have a subtle highlight effect when choosing my concealer shade. So I went with the medium/deep warm-6 color that is about a shade in a half lighter than my skin tone and has a golden undertone.
There are a total of six concealer shades to choose from, with this color being the second to “darkest” in the selection.
Here is a quick swatch of what it looks like on my hand.
When choosing a concealer, here are the top three things I look for:
1. Undertone: I look for concealer that has a golden undertone because I like the look of a highlighted area under my eyes. Anything that is too neutral looks ashy on me.
2. Consistency: I look for a concealer that goes on smooth and creamy making it easier to blend. Because I like the consistency to be creamy, I always set my concealer with a translucent powder to prevent creasing lines underneath my eyes.
3. Coverage: Concealer that actually conceals isn’t too much to ask for right? Well you would be surprised. I have dark spots (from popping pimples…which I don’t recommend you do) and semi-dark circles under my eyes, so a concealer with pigment and coverage is key.
I apply my concealer in somewhat of a triangle shape under my eyes and on any dark spots.
Next I take my ring finger and smooth out the concealer down to my cheeks to make sure it’s blended seamlessly with my foundation. The next step (not pictured) is to lightly brush a translucent powder over the concealer to set it and prevent any creasing lines.
Be gentle when blending because the skin under your eye is very delicate.
You see the difference it makes with concealer on the left side and none on the right? The correct shade can instantly light up your face and give you a refreshed look!
The L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Crayon Concealer is definitely a great drugstore buy. It got the job done and the crayon stick makes it easy to use. Get’s a thumbs up from me!
