Concealers are very techie. It’s hard to find a concealer which gives crease free & smooth finishing without looking ashy or orange-ish. I generally use a concealer under my eye area to cover up my dark circles. I never use a concealer on my blemishes, since I feel that accentuates my blemishes and attracts attention to it. I feel Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is a nice option to cover dark circles, but L’Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Concealer can not be ignored, which was launched few years back. I still find it very usable and workable with base or no base. Let’s talk about it in detail.

The concealer comes in a transparent tube with a silver colored screw-in applicator fitted at the top. It is quite a convenient packaging for a concealer no doubt. The packaging contains all the information about the product but is too fine that it’s very difficult to photograph. The concealer tub is very small and fits in the palm of my hand.
The concealer comes in 3 shades in India – Light, Medium & Deep. The shade selection can be little tricky sometimes, when it comes to the Indian skin tones. I feel sometimes that, the brands just don’t do justice to Indian skin tones when they release only 3 shades, pushing all the skin tones into those categories. There should be at least 6 categories to define some in between skin tones.
Shade – Fair/Light
This is the lightest shade around. I have wheatish skin tone. My skin tone lies between light & medium. Using a product which is meant to be used for fair skin tones, makes me look ashy. Going for a darker shade which is meant to be used on medium skin tones, definitely makes me look orangish.
The SA pushed me to buy the Fair/Light shade, because, it has nice yellow undertones. On my hand it looks very yellowish but under my eyes the concealer looks little white – not ashy but white due to light pigment.
How I Use It?
I simply take out the applicator out of the tube and swipe under my eyes making a triangle touching my cheeks. Because, it goes little white on my skin, it works as an under eye highlighter. I blend the concealer using the tip of my ring finger. Dabbing works the best. I also sometimes use Puna Store Beauty Blender.
The reason I bought this concealer at the first place. L’Oreal has named the product so wisely – Super Blendable. The texture of the concealer is creamy & smooth, it literally blends like a dream leaving matte & crease free finishing.
The pigmentation of the concealer is good. It is thick yet runny. Just one swipe gives enough coverage. Covers my moderate dark circles very well.
The texture of the concealer is creamy but the formula dries off quickly into a matte finish. The finish is crease less, which is very impressive.
For the first 5 minutes, my under eye area looks really white specially when I have tanned face. Later the concealer settles in without accentuating any fine lines, gives a nice even toned look to my under eye area.

Summary : 4/5
It is such a shame that the shade selection is not good. Otherwise the concealer impresses me in every field – pigmentation, texture, finish & longevity. Also the price is bit high.
