This is a new entry in my make up collection and I was excited. You can check out my video on youtube, if you are curious!
I just finished my one and only concealer and I was looking for something else just or make a change and to be able to try out other products, too.
This I got when I was shopping at UPIM. It is a local retail store carrying a lot of stuff from make up to clothes, shoes and home accessories. I came across the shelf of L’Oreal Paris make up.
In fact this month, I am gonna feature make up items from L’Oreal and I hope you will like this series.
This is a high coverage face concealer with a Waterproof formula. It is 24h long wear. And that is always a surprise to me whenever make up promises to stay for a specific amount of time and I do understand because there are people out there who work long hours and would need a strong long lasting power make up.
It also claims to be ideal for covering dark circles and correcting facial imperfections.
It has a maxi applicator which for me is super huge lol!
The new mat formula with 30% colored pigments is now enriched with a mix of oils that make the texture light and easy to apply, providing 24h hydration. It blends perfectly with the skin, for a natural and luminous finish.
Waterproof and no transfer formula.
Plus it is available in 15 shades to suit every skin tone. And I think that is awesome!
That is a bunch of claims that with some I don’t agree with. In my blog I usually post articles that I love and truly want to share because I know it can benefit someone else. It is very rare that I talk about stuff that didn’t impress me that much.
But for the sake of talking about make up, I do want to be transparent and honest. And of course yes, you already saw this, too, in my beauty haul. That is why I decided I still do want to talk about stuff that maybe I like less than the others or simply just didn’t work for me just to share with you my thoughts about it.
Pick up a small amount of product with the brush applicator for ultra-precise and comfortable application, then blend evenly for a natural, mattifying finish.
1. Choose a shade similar to that of your skin, then apply a small amount of More Than Concealer directly on imperfections, spreading it with the help of your fingers, a brush or a make-up sponge.
2. Choose a shade one to two tones lighter than your natural skin colour, then apply More Than Concealer under the eyes and blend to cover dark circles. The eyes will be brighter and younger looking.
3. Choose a shade two/three tones darker than the natural color of the skin to contour and add volume to the face.
First of all, this is high coverage concealer and I’m not surprised if it is thick in consistency. And it is not something that I look for in my concealer. Especially that for my undereyes. I don’t have problems under my eyes so I don’t need a mat or a full coverage formula.
Yes, I confirm it has a mat finish so please be mindful. It accentuated dryness around my eyes that I didn’t think even exists, you know. I tried everything. I applied less product as I could. But it is so so creamy and thick. I tried it with a sponge and a brush and the best solution for me is my fingers, just blending it very lightly.
No hydration at all and I don’t think it is natural or luminous as they claim the formula to be.
I am not sure if this is waterproof at all because I never had the opportunity to test it that way. Long wearing? Hmmm yes I must say it does stay a long while. Because I go to work in the morning and come back home it isn’t going anywhere. At least I have to give that to l’Oreal.
But unfortunately this is not the concealer for me. I should have researched more. This is a drugstore product but still I hate wasting money for a product that I am not satisfied with.
I am trying my best to use it with my other concealer products. But so far, I am not happy.
I hope this article helped you a little bit. This is just me and my needs and my experience.
Of course I will continue to use it and give it a chance and I will update you maybe on youtube 🙂
Thank you so much for reading. I will see you on my next article! Ciao!
