Review -- L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer

I have an entire drawer full of concealers.

Which is certainly more than any one person needs -- I won't argue that.

But I do like having a few different formulas in my arsenal, depending on what my needs might be on a particular day.

For example, I have an everyday under eye concealer that does a pretty good job hiding my usually mild dark circles. However, when I haven't gotten much sleep or my allergies are acting up, my circles can get much, much darker and I need a heavier formula to cover them up.

Most days, I can use one concealer to hide the discolorations on the rest of my face because it's just a little redness that needs covering up.  When I'm nursing a particularly nasty breakout, though, I want a full coverage formula that's not going to move around all day.

And some days when I'm in a rush, I want to skip foundation all together and just use a concealer on the spots that need it so I want a formula that's ideal for that.

I've discovered recently that the L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer is kind perfect for that, actually.

As its name implies, the concealer comes in a thick pencil-like applicator with a twist-up bottom to dispense more product. The formula is fairly thin, but super creamy so it blends easily into the skin.

It doesn't over the most coverage and it isn't the longest-lasting concealer I've used, but it works just as well under the eyes as it does on discolorations on the face and I can apply it in a hurry and blend with my fingers so it's a real time-saver.

I think it's a great concealer for days when you don't have much to cover and want to get out the door in a hurry.

I've also seen that quite a few people use it as a cream highlighter or contour, depending on the shade, and I think it would work great for that. I'm actually in the market for a cream contour product, so I'm going to check out the darker shades the next time I'm at the drugstore to see if there's a good color match for my super pale skin.

I purchased it in Fair/Light N1-2-3 and it's a pretty good match for super fair, mostly neutral skin.

So while it isn't the greatest concealer I've ever used, I definitely think it's a handy product to have in my makeup bag.

It retails for approximately $8.99 wherever L'Oreal products are sold.

Have you tried the L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer? What's your favorite crayon type concealer?
