L'Oreal Paris Lucent Magique Concealer Pen

Friday, May 04, 2012

"Lucent" by definition means giving off light, translucent, luminous and clear. Let's see if this new corrector pen stays true to its name and 5 target areas (lids before eye shadow, over under eye area, around corners of the nose, fine expression lines and contour around lip area), as the BB cream did.

 L'Oreal Paris Lucent Magique Concealer Pen (6J195 Light)
SRP: PHP 545
Availability: Leading Department Stores

 (+) Texture is semi-liquid, not really like a concealer cream or stick.
After blending
 (+) Color is pinkish cream which matches my arm's skin tone on a bluish light
 (+) Coverage is not too thick but it definitely lightened the arm's skin with a translucent luminous light finish.

Applying on under eye, lids and contours of nose,
(-) The pen is hard to control so make sure you twist it very carefully and do it in dots.
(+) However it's very easy to blend
Using fingers to blend (by dabbing)
(+) compared to the right side, clearly, I corrected my reddish/pinkish skin tone on a yellowish light
(+) a luminous finish can be seen
(-) which means that coverage is average. It really can't conceal that much in the sense of application, only in illusion. If you have really dark circles, this might not work so you might have to double the coverage.
(+) imperfections, lines dark circles were hidden with the illusion of a clearer lighter skin
(+) lids clearly brightened also which is perfect prior to eyeshadow application
(+) Aside from lightening, you can see micro-shimmers (shining like crystals when joined together) which hide lines and imperfections upon hitting of light on the surface - the illusion of a perfect skin right after
(+) But also, if you can notice below (especially on the right side where I left an area bare, it made the eye or the area of application pop because the illusion of light. This is perfect for people who have deep-set eyes.
 (+) True enough, with this effect, it can be perfect for contouring purposes especially on lips or even on the nose area as it will create a lifting effect
Since it's kind of really white on my face tone, I used the Lucent foundation and powder (lined up for review!!) on top as you can see below which gave a better healthy-looking color with good coverage, but not cancelling out the luminous and light effect.
Truly magical and true to its promises! Overall, I recommend and will repurchase this again especially that the price is not that bad! Of the concealer pens, this is one rises above all because of its special lifting/highlighting effect  that could stay for a long time. For me, this can replace my concealer but for those who have really dark circles, you can correct using concealer then top it off with this magical pen!

Hope you liked the review!
