Laura Mercier Secret Concealer Review

Thursday, January 27, 2011
Hey everyone! So I just purchased some amazing gift packs from London Drugs!
First of all I purchased the Elizabeth Arden Blockbuster for only $20 ! Then I purchased a Biotherm Gift Pack worth $91 for only $30! Here is a brief glance at some things to come:

Today's Review:
Purchase: $30 @ Sephora
Packaging: 7 out of 10
Crease Resistant: 5 out of 10
Coverage: 9 out of 10

What it does: Developed specifically for use under and around the eye area. Secret Concealer's moisture-rich, emollient formula is specially designed for the dry, sensitive skin under the eye to conceal discoloration and dark circles.

My thoughts: Personally, I prefer sticks rather than pots when it comes to concealers, however, this stuff is so creamy I don't think it would be able to come in a stick form. This concealer has great coverage and blend-ability, however, I wasn't able to find a colour that perfectly matched my pale complexion so I picked up a tester in a darker shade which I was able to blend in nicely! What a great surprise! Because it is quite creamy, it does slide in to your crease area so be sure to set it with a very fine powder (like MAC's Prep + Prime Translucent Powder). Another tip is to let the concealer set for a few minutes and then re-blend out of the crease. This product did a great job at covering up my dark under eye circles and I also used it on my red acne spot. The coverage is fantastic! It is definitely a dual use product. The other great this is that it is so moist that it does not cake up around your eye area or dry out the sensitive skin. The bad thing about this is the price. Online it says it is $22 for both this and the Makeup forever concealer I reviewed the other day, but when transferred to Canadian Prices this stuff comes to $30 online and I even think it is $32 in stores! Ridiculously disappointing if you ask me.
