I used to be a major foundation girl, but as I’ve gotten older and solved a lot of my skin concerns, I’ve wanted to simplify my makeup routine. Less is more, but for me, nothing is not an option. I like having a simple no makeup, makeup routine. Whether I’m going out of the house or working from my home office and not seeing a soul, it makes me feel put together and ready to tackle anything the day throws at me.

I’ve tried a lot of concealers over the years, and as much as I liked many of them, I was always searching for the best. When I tried the Catrice True Skin Concealer, my search was officially over. I’ve been using this concealer for the last few years and it’s firmly planted in my holy grail products. I love it so much that I always keep a spare on hand. 

I use it mostly alone with no foundation, but also as a foundation when I want more coverage. My method is:

No makeup, makeup. I start with great skin prep and then dot the Catrice true Skin concealer onto the areas I want coverage. I then tap it into my skin with my fingers. It blends in seamlessly and you can’t see where the concealer ends and skin begins.

More coverage. I dot the concealer more liberally all over my face and blend it in with a beauty blender.

Lucky for me, and maybe for you! It is extremely affordable at R100 a tube and available in so many places like Clicks, Dischem, Superbalist and Takealot.

Catrice True Skin Concealer Pros


The formula is very creamy and blends into skin very well.


It gives great coverage. I would call it medium coverage and suited for those who want a natural look.


It doesn’t settle in fine lines. As the day progresses I find that it “fades” into your skin.


The shade I use, Cool Cashmere, seems to be widely flattering. Whether my skin is more tan in summer or paler in winter, it works. I also use it on any family members that ask me to do their makeup and it somehow works on everyone. (We do all run paler, but all have different undertones).


It doesn’t require you to wear foundation to get an even skin look.


The wand is lovely. It is flat, wide, fluffy and applies to the skin beautifully.


It only costs R100! One tube lasts me a few months, but I do use it every day.

Catrice True Skin Concealer Cons


The label printing is an area they definitely saved money on. After a while, the metallic 18H sticker on the lid starts to flake off, so if you’re not careful you’ll find little gold and black specks on your face. My easy solution has been to peel it off before I start using it.
