BLOGGER TALK: L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer

L'Oreal True Match Crayon Concealer

Conceal it all, big to small. L'Oreal's 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.

What Beauty Bloggers are Saying...

"Additionally, the tapered tip with automatic (twist up) sharpener is made for both precise and broad application. The consistency is very emollient and creamy and one I typically associate with blemish coverage rather than under-eye coverage. Still, I used it on both to make sure it lived up to its' coverall claims. It covers blemishes really well and blends in nicely, but it doesn't really shine in the color-covering area. I put it to the ultimate test by applying it to the blueish circles under my tired morning eyes. No dice. It wasn't awful, but there was still some pigment shining through and didn't brighten as much as other concealers I've tried. The creamy texture also makes it prone to sliding throughout the day (and that's coming from someone with combo skin who doesn't tend to have problems with makeup meltdown in the winter), so I would say this is exclusively a blemish concealer for me.

"I like the texture of the concealer crayons - they are firm enough to hold their shape as crayons, but soft enough to apply easily, without any tugging. When first applied, they are very creamy and blendable, but after about a minute, they set and don't smudge with light pressure (they will, like any concealer, smudge if you try hard enough!). The texture seems better suited to covering blemishes than undereyes - it's on the thicker side, and I find that a thinner texture works better for me in the eye area (though I don't have prominent bags and often skip undereye concealer entirely). Wear time seems average; the concealer lasts until I remove it at the end of the day, but I haven't tried it on a long, hot summer day."

"The concealer’s texture is creamy but drier and stiffer than I expected and hoped for from a cream
stick concealer and I knew right then that it would never be a favorite concealer of mine. The coverage though is really impressive...The twist-up stick format of the concealer allows you to cover small blemishes as well as larger areas such as undereye circles, and depending on how much you use you can achieve a sheer to medium coverage. It’s also easy to build up the coverage without the concealer looking cakey or heavy, and because of its stiffer/drier texture the concealer really clings to the skin and doesn’t slip and slide

"I was hoping these would work under eyes but knew they probably would be best suited for cover up issues in and around your face. Under my eyes I felt the formula was a little dry. The pencil has a creamy texture but blending out it feels a tad on the dry side which results in creasing into finer lines...The tip has an easy, smooth glide and blends out decently well on hydrated skin but not as nicely under eyes. Coverage is sheerer with a semi-matte finish. "


  1. I've been looking for a good overview on this for weeks, and this has been a fine help. I will be getting this tweeted for definite.
