TBN: Super-Hyped Products Edition- L’Oréal Infallible Concealer Review

Every once in a while, certain new product launches are so hyped, even I buy into it (I shouldn't- I've tried too much). The product du jour, this time, was the new concealer by L’Oréal, called Infallible More Than a Concealer.

At first glance, you can see this is another product 'inspired by' the Tarte Shapetape. A larger tube than the industry standard 7ml, this comes with a large, doe foot applicator. This offers a long-lasting, matte finish and full coverage. As the name suggests, you can use this as a concealer but, thanks to its consistency, also as a contour product in a darker shade, or even a foundation.

This is one of the few products I needed to test for more than 3 days to make up my mind. I've given it 6 full days of wear and I can now safely conclude (brace yourself, this will be the height of eloquence):

It's fine.

This is the best word to describe it. It's just fine. Not great, not bad, it's ok. I see the most minute of differences between this and the Revolution concealer or the Catrice Liquid Camouflage (these are both a third of the price of the Infallible). I would highly recommend applying this with your fingers because the warmth of your skin helps this creamier concistency blend better. I usually apply concealers with a brush, so it took some getting used to. If you like a light, luminous concealer like Touche Éclat, this is not for you. Try the Bourjois Radiance Reveal instead. This is heavy-duty and thicker; it brightens but it does not illuminate in the way we have come to define the current makeup look of 'glow'. It slightly creases at first but if you just warm it up with your finger, it's fine again. It slightly dries, but, again, that is easily fixable with your fingers. You can set it with a powder, but there's no need for it. It's fine either way.

Do I recommend it? Sure. I didn't use the word 'fine' twenty times in this review by mistake; it really is just that. Will I stop using it? No, I'll probably use it up. Will I buy it again? No- I'll stick to my Revolution one. And my Too Faced Born This Way concealer (that follows the exact same principles) is better because it does not dry.
