Chanel Le Blanc 2012 Collection – Light Mastering Whitening Concealer Review

June 18, 2012

Chanel always excels in base makeup, and I personally enjoyed every base product I have used from them. When the new Light Mastering Whitening Concealer was released from the Chanel Le Blanc 2012 Collection, I immediately knew I wanted to have it. Thanks to the lovely Jen who helped me purchase it from Hong Kong as the collection is not available in Australia.



If you happened to have read this post, you will know I have quite an unnecessary amount of concealers, and I would say the Chanel Light Mastering Whitening Concealer definitely tops my favorites list.  The texture is the winner for me. It has an airy and creamy moussy texture that goes on smoothly and feels very lightweight and natural on the skin.  Two teeniest dabs of it is enough to conceal my mild dark circles completely and softly brightens my skin by about half a shade. I normally like to use the Becca extra small polishing brush (reviewed here) for application and it gives a natural yet flawless and luminous result. Once the concealer is settled, it dries down to a semi-matte finish with a hint of dewiness that is just needed for concealing and illuminating purposes. It doesn’t settle into any fine lines nor does it require any setting powder, and it doesn’t slip throughout the day.

It also has SPF30+ and  PA+++ which is an added bonus for those of you who are very cautious with sun protection. I bought the shade in 10 Beige Clair which has a neutral undertone, and it works excellent with my skin.

Bottom Line: If you are after a concealer and a highlighter all-in-one product, and you have mild to moderate discoloration/pigmentation, I highly recommend this product!

Thank you for the fantastic review, Reika. This looks VERY promising! What a wonderful sounding product. This sounds like just what I need to conceal my dark circles too!

Absolutely my pleasure, Reika. You deserve it and so much more! I have loved your blog for a very long time and it’s the least that I could do to express my gratitude!

Unfortunately this didn’t work for me 🙁 i tried it last month and even the SA agreed that it didnt love my skin. I love the Le Blanc powder compact foundation however!


Reika June 19, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Oh no…I wonder why didn’t you like it? Ahh now you made me want to get the powder foundation!

The powder foundation is fantastic! I was using it solidly until recently (switched to Lancome’s BB base – Korean version in the last month to date). Highly recommended, I’ve never stuck with the same base for so long before.

The concealer consistency made it difficult to blend and looked err clumpy. But, now looking back it may have been the SA piling on too much plus my skin was super oily due to the humid climate then.

Does this crease at all? The spf sounds nice, but I’ve been on the lookout for a good heavy coverage concealer for my undereye area that has minimal creasing. Still on the hunt!
