L'Oreal Infalliable More Than Concealer | Review

When it comes to concealer for myself, the fuller the coverage, the better. I'm always open to trying new concealers, especially if they're promised to be full coverage. I've used a selection of products from L'Oreal's "Infallible" range before (the Infallible powder being a makeup bag must-have for a number of years now. When I heard that L'Oreal had released a new line of concealers, promising a full coverage & matte finish, I knew I had to try it out.

L'Oreal's "More Than Concealer" is available in 25 shades and promises a full coverage, matte finish. It also claims to be ultra-lendable, long lasting and weightless, and can provide this coverage for up to 24 hours. That's pretty much everything I wish for in a concealer, so as you can imagine, I had high hopes for this.

I picked three different shades of the concealer, and luckily the store I went to had all 25 in stock, which meant I could really see the range in full! I really respect L'Oreal when it comes to their diversity and inclusion, they always have a wide variety of shades on offer,  their True Match foundation comes in 28 shades, the Infallible foundation comes in 26 shades. Anyway, this range is pretty good, I feel like we've come so far since I started wearing makeup - I would only see a wide colour range like this in high-end shops like MAC or Urban Decay, not in Boots. 

After a lot of deliberation, I decided to pick up three shades:

#326 Vanilla - a light, yellow-toned shade that I'd use as a highlighting shade when I've got a tan, or just as a "natural colour" concealer for when I don't have a tan.

#331 Latte - still yellow-toned, but a bit darker. A shade that just kind of matches my tan, but could still be used for highlighting.

#340 Chestnut - a darker concealer that I'd use for contouring. This shade is ideal for if you've got a darker skin tone too, but as I like to use concealer to contour my cheeks, I picked this up for that reason.

The concealer has a doe-foot applicator, similar to the applicator that comes with the infamous Revolution "Conceal and Perfect" concealer. I've been using the Revolution concealer for absolutely ages now, and I really rate these sized applicators - they cover a much wider surface area and I just generally find them easier to use, so this was a hit for me.

On application, I found that the concealer is very high coverage - you definitely don't need a lot of it, and a little goes a long way. It's very easy to blend, I just blend it out using a Real Techniques sponge and it looks great on. The concealer does have a very matte finish, I have pretty oily skin so this does work well for me, but if you do have dry skin I could imagine this being quite drying - but by all means, give it a try. I haven't tested the 24hr wear theory, purely because I don't need to wear it for 24 hours (who does?) but for the long flights I've worn it for (one being a near 14 hour day) it did last very well. 

The concealer is priced at £9.99, which I believe does make it the most expensive concealer that L'Oreal currently do (correct me if I'm wrong, that's just what I found from research) - so it is kind of expensive compared to say, True Match - but the coverage is definitely higher than True Match so I'd put it down to that. I don't think this price is unreasonable for a concealer though, especially of this quality - I am really impressed with it.

I have seen a lot of people comparing this to Tarte's Shape Tape, and saying they are very similar - something that I can't comment on or compare myself due to never trying Shape Tape. Honestly, I'd love to try it - but I simply can't justify spending £25-30 on a concealer that I can't even colour match for as I'd have to get online. Many others are saying that the two concealers are very similar though, so if you're looking for something like Shape Tape for literally 1/3 of the price, then this concealer might be for you.

Overall I would recommend the More Than Concealer - it's high coverage, it's long wearing, it's affordable and easily accessible - a good all-round product in my opinion! 

You can purchase L'Oreal's new More Than Concealer from a variety of retailers, notably Boots and Superdrug if you're in the UK.

Thanks for reading!
