Superdrug had a three for two deal across all cosmetics back in August, and I decided to purchase the L’Oreal True Match Eye Cream In A Concealer as I’d never seen or heard anyone talk about it before, and I was really intrigued. L’Oreal foundations tend to be quite good, but I’m yet to find a L’Oreal concealer I like.

The L’Oreal True Match Eye Cream In A Concealer is £9.99 and comes in just eight shades, which is really pathetic considering how diverse their foundation shade ranges are. The shades are really strange as they’re numbered with two numbers online, and it’s really confusing. I chose the L’Oreal True Match Eye Cream In A Concealer in the shade Rose Porcelain which is also known as being 1-2 R / 1-2C.
I can’t look at this swatch without laughing, but this is the lightest shade available. It’s rare that I don’t have to blend lightening drops with foundations and concealers to get a shade that works for my pale skin, but this is too deep a shade to blend with lightening drops, as I have to use more drops in ratio to the concealer and as the concealer has a brush applicator, it’s not easy to blend together unfortunately.
Let’s just ignore the ridiculous colour and talk about the formula. I didn’t really understand the claims of an eye cream in a concealer, but the formula is genuinely like an eye cream with a watery consistency, but with a little bit of coverage. It’s almost as if it’s a BB Cream in a concealer format.
It feels hydration, doesn’t settle into fine lines and feels nice on the skin, but there’s just no coverage. All of the reviews for the L’Oreal True Match Eye Cream In A Concealer that are on Boots, are reviews from the L’Oreal website where they’ve received the concealer for free as a sample, and I know it probably sounds like a massive contradiction seeing as bloggers do the same thing, but I rarely trust this kind of reviews as the wording is almost identical in every review.
I just don’t get this product. Sure it feels nice on the skin, but there’s no coverage and it’s more of an eye cream than it is a concealer, so in all honesty I’d just rather use an eye cream and a concealer separately as this product doesn’t save you any time, as you need to use a concealer as this concealer just doesn’t do anything, and it’s £10 too which is expensive.
The only bloggers raving about this concealer, are those that received this concealer in PR, so I’d recommend trying the concealer instore first as I genuinely don’t understand how anyone could enjoy this concealer. It doesn’t conceal, doesn’t brighten, doesn’t add coverage, doesn’t replace eye cream and is a waste of £10.
