L’Oréal True Match Concealer Review

L’Oréal’s True Match Collection is very popular and they claim to match 98% of UK skin tones (True Match Foundation) I never really liked the True Match Foundation, I found it too shimmery and red so I gave it away. I decided to try the True Match concealer because I liked the consistency of it and the luminous finish of it. I have had this concealer over 3 years at least so I know how this works.

The L’Oréal True Match The One Concealer is described as a lightweight medium to high buildable coverage to provide instant brightness to the eye area and fight dark circles over time. They also promise to conceal imperfections and hide signs of fatigue. It comes in 14 shades


Nyx Cosmetics HD Studio Photogenic Concealer Review

I have the shade 9D.W Mahogany which had red undertones and is a skin tone shade but very workable as an under eye highlight (sometimes I add a lighter concealer on top depending on my mood). I have shown shade comparisons with my other drugstore concealers in the above picture. I do agree with L’Oréal that the concealer feels lightweight, infact it’s extremely lightweight but the coverage is definitely not medium. It is more of a sheer coverage but it’s buildable. The finish of this is very dewy which I like and it does add some brightness to the eye area. It does have some slight shimmer in it but it is not very obvious compared to the foundation. As for fighting dark circles over time, that’s not true.

My biggest con with this concealer is that something in it makes my eyes water a lot when I apply and blend it. I have never experienced this is any of my concealers or foundations so it’s a shame really as I do like it.  It also has a strong alcohol scent. I don’t use it under eye anymore but as a foundation when I want a quick no makeup makeup look but this isn’t very often, infact I haven’t reached for this concealer for a while. It looks so beautiful as a foundation and makes the skin look glowy and smooth.  I would honestly like to try a lighter shade as a highlighting concealer but unless they have changed the formula, I have to stay away from it.


A bittersweet experience: I really like the finish of this and even the sheer coverage but it makes my eyes water so much and the scent is a put-off. It must be an ingredient in it or maybe it’s the strong alcohol scent that is making my eyes water. I don’t have any allergies so I don’t think it’s that but who knows. People really like this concealer so it is obvious that this is a personal issue and it’s different for everyone. I can still recommend it because you may not experience this issue and it is a good concealer to have. Do not expect a lot of coverage from this but you can build up if you like.

L’Oréal True Match The One concealer is £7.99 available from Boots*
