It’s been a minute since I sat down a did a proper makeup review. Life got in the way of my creative juices, and people don’t swing around these parts as much as they used to. There’s more of you lovely lot interacting over on Instagram. But I love blogging, so Beautynook isn’t going anywhere, I just guess the content will not be as frequent. Tis’ the way of the online world 🙂 Anyways, enough personal rambling, I am here to talk about the new L’Oréal Infallible More Than Concealer….concealer.
I am overall a big fan of the Infallible range. The 24 Hour Matte foundation is one of my very faves, as is the Fixing Mist. I’ve done many a review over the years, some glowing, some grand and some of them not so grand.
So how did I fare with the new L’Oréal Infallible More Than Concealer? In all honesty it falls into the grand category for me, but do hear me out.
I think all concealers that come in a chubby tube with a larger doe foot applicator are always going to be compared to Tarte Shape Tape, case in point the Revolution Conceal & Define and now this. And let’s face it for the most part they can be pretty similar. They’re all more full coverage and have a matte finish.
It comes in 25 shades and L’Oréal say they called it ‘More Than Concealer’, because you can use it to brighten, correct, contour and highlight. Very clever!
For me, It definitely has decent coverage. I have the shade Ivory, which is a little lighter than my natural skin tone so does brighten under the eyes for me. As you can see in these screenshots from the video I did.
Here it is in actual action:
So I like the coverage and the colour range, what don’t I like? Now remember this is complete personal opinion as I know there’s a lot of people who love this concealer. It dries down quickly so you have to work fast, thats nor a major problem for me. It’s normal with a thicker, more coverage formula. For me, it takes a lot of blending, I find a fluffy synthetic brush works best for me to do that with. I also find that even though I set it, it creases on me! This very rarely happens for me with under eye concealer, so have to mark it down for that. It also catches on any dryness you might have, which can make it even harder to blend out. These reasons tend to make me want to reach for something more trustworthy day to day. Final verdict? I like it, but I don’t love it.
I am actually giving one of these concealers away along with a whole host of other beauty goodies over on my Instagram at the time this post is published, so be sure to check that out 🙂
You can buy the L’Oréal Infallible More Than Concealer concealer now. I got mine in Boots, but actually Littlewoods seem to have the better deal on it here.
Have you tried it?
