L’Oreal True Match Eye Cream In A Concealer is a new concealer slash eye cream that’s launching for Summer 2020 shortly. This new hybrid formula acts to conceal pesky dark circles as it treats the delicate eye area providing moisture and acting to retain that moisture thanks to a formula that contains 0.5% pure hyaluronic acid.
The is an intriguing formula that’s completely ruined b the ingredients it includes but as a concealer (and an eye cream) junkie it’s my responsibility to try it for you.
So, what do we have here. We have a concealer that promises to act as an eye cream as well. Here’s the deal though….when you’re combining an eye cream and a concealer together you’re basically creating a tinted moisture. In my experience, any product that promises too many things only ever excels at one thing or worst case scenario, it doesn’t excel at any. If this new formula plans to act like an eye cream I can almost guarantee it won’t be pigmented. Hydrating concealers tend to sheer out quite a bit when applied. But there is a chance L’Oreal may be on to something here however, they completely ruin it with the addition of alcohol in the formula.
Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Caprylyl Methicone, Propanediol, Dimethicone, Pentylene Glycol, Dimethicone/Peg-10/15 Crosspolymer, Alcohol Denat., Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Chloride, Triethoxysilylethyl Polydimethylsiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Phenoxyethanol, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Caprylyl Glycol, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Alumina, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Tocopherol, [+/- May Contain/Peut Contenir, CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499/Iron Oxides, CI 77163 / Bismuth Oxychloride, Mica, ] Fil Code C248797/2.
Ok, let’s take a look. Water, good. Oooo lots of cones. Not a great thing but not an awful thing. Caprylyl Methicone is a good one as it’ll make application smooth and easy. Propanediol not a cone but equally a good for hydrating the delicate skin around the eyes. Dimethicone also provides more of a slippery texture. All these cones are making me wonder if the texture will feel more like a traditional silicone facial primer versus an eye cream. I’m saddened to say Sodium Hyaluronate the 9 ingredient on the list which does make me wonder how well it will actually help to draw moisture in but that actually isn’t my main concern here. My concern stems from the fact they went and threw in alcohol before Sodium Hyaluronate. Anything good here is ruined by the addition of alcohol. You might draw comfort from the fact it’s the 8th ingredient here but it’s still here none the less.
I’ll likely ignore the alcohol and dry this regardless but I have a feeling it’s a formula that won’t make my hit list.
We’ll see though! L’Oreal has surprised me in the past.
L’Oreal True Match Eye Cream In A Concealer is $14.99 and launches soon.
