For many years now I’ve had the privilege of using luxury makeup, because I would receive them as gifts, training sessions and if companies sent us many testers over time I would give them to my colleagues and myself to try them out. How are you gonna know if their good products are not? But in the last few years, I’ve seen many changes but good ones to the makeup that is more affordable. So it got me thinking that maybe I should mix it up and start trying drugstore makeup.
Plus being on a budget helps to make my decision a lot easier to start mixing it up with high-end makeup and affordable makeup. Because we all know it can get expensive with makeup, especially when you’re a makeup junkie like me. Plus it would also be great to know what is out there in the drugstore brands that you can go too when you don’t want to spend a lot of money or you have that makeup emergency and you can’t get to your favorite store to get your $50.00 foundation or that $30.00 mascara. So here is my review on the L’oreal concealer.
L’oreal infallible pro glow concealer
So for my first drug mart makeup brand purchase I went with this concealer ‘cause my makeup forever concealer was running out. L’oreal has recently launched the whole pro series, targeting oily skin and normal to dry skin, at least that’s what it looks like. I do like that they are targeting certain skin types which gives me more choices.
This concealer goes for $12.99 retail value and what it supposed to do is give you a buildable and luminous coverage for up to 16 hours. It helps to highlight, sculpt, correct and conceal imperfections as well. All the while brightening your complexion to give you that awesome glow that we all deserve.
I have always been a L’oreal fan. My first product from them was the voluminous mascara which I still love to this day. So I did have some expectations that it would be decent enough concealer to use. After using the makeup forever high coverage concealer, I wasn’t expecting it to be like that because that is a totally different concealer from this L’oreal one.
Let me tell you I was pretty shocked at how this held up throughout the day. I used it under my eyes and dotted on to some of my acne spots and it did not crease at all under my eyes, which is usually my problem area. It did give me a nice natural, brighter look and the consistency was very fluid. It blended very nicely with my skin and foundation and after wearing it for 10 hours, it still did not crease under my eyes. But at the end of the day it look like it faded a little under the eye area.
This concealer gave me pretty good coverage. To me, you can build coverage to a medium coverage, but it is not a full coverage concealer. If you want that luminous and a nice glow, these types of concealers tend to be more fluid like consistency. I did tried to build up the coverage, but it did not look that much different from the first layer of the concealer but nonetheless it covered my dark circles and help brighten the eye area.
To me, this concealer was a hit. It’s easy to blend, covers up my dark circles and most importantly it does not crease in my fine lines. It doesn’t say if it’s for dry skin and normal skin or oily skin, but I have oily skin and it was fine for me. I would definitely recommend this concealer for anyone who is looking for a medium coverage and a concealer to brighten the skin.
I hope this article was helpful for you and I hope to be doing more drugstore makeup reviews for you. Until next week have a great day my beauties!
