The pointed tip allows me to spot conceal with ease, as well as highlight my brow bone without the use of a separate brush for application. The twist-thingy to expose more of the product is cool, too, however the tip doesn’t go all the way down the tube when new. So there’s a tendency for the tip of the concealer to get caught on the clear plastic cap when I’m in a hurry.
As part of my eagerness to improve my overall skin’s condition, I have turned to a healthier lifestyle. This means proper diet, exercise (as much as my hectic schedule permits) and although it’s not completely within my control, I try to sleep at least 7 hours a day. But for days that I don’t get enough sleep, I always turn to concealers for a quick fix. I’d rather suffer eyebags than the consequences of turning in an incomplete work paper for a client so overtime it is, haha. For times like this, sometimes a quick fix makes a huge difference.

Conceal it all, big to small. True Match™ Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer offers customizable coverage from the tiniest of blemishes to larger areas of imperfections. The tip of the crayon allows for precise application, while the side of the crayon can easily canvas a larger area of skin. The innovative formula provides sheer to full coverage that blends easily and won’t look cakey.
As the name suggests, the L’Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer comes in a jumbo crayon-like packaging. Although not the first of its kind, I like it; it’s easy to use and the cap has a lock wherein you have to twist it open. Having said that, there’s very minimal risk of accidentally popping the cap off when inside the bag.
L’Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer comes in 6 shades that perfectly match the new True Match Foundation. I got the W4-5 (concealer) to go with my G4 Gold Beige (foundation) – and true enough, they are the perfect combination for my skin! The shade blends in seamlessly on my skin leaving hardly any trace.
I know a few people who find the formulation of the L’Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer to be a bit too dry for their liking as it can be difficult to blend. Well, it is a tad drier compared my to usual go-to cream concealer, but it does have it’s advantages. For one, it stays in place. It doesn’t cake as much as cream concealers and it doesn’t need a ton of effort in setting with powder. Personally, I like the texture and consistency. Although it works well for me combination/oily skin, I won’t recommend this to those with dry skin as it may look flaky on them.

Application: Instead of focusing on the under eye area, make an inverted triangle using the concealer then blend it out. When you apply concealer only on the under eye area, you are actually highlighting it thus drawing more attention to your eyebags. With the “inverted triangle” technique, not only are you concealing the dark area but it also doubles as your highlight. And by doing so, the concealer is more seamlessly blended out [with the foundation].
It offers medium-heavy coverage that is quite buildable. However, keep in mind that because it is somewhat dry, you need to blend it out immediately after application as it settles fairly quickly. That’s actually one of the things I love about this. When it dries, it stays in place for hours. It rarely sits in fine lines and it doesn’t cake. Very impressive for a drugstore brand!
