Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer | Review

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a recent purchase of mine, the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer - I recently picked this up from SpaceNK and have been using it for about a week now. It comes with two concealers which you can mix and customise to get your perfect shade. I really love that you get two shades as I know this will match me all year round as I can mix more of the darker/lighter shades depending on how tanned/pale I am. I have the shade SC-4 which I would say is best for medium skin tones.
 
What Laura Mercier say 'Conceal discolourations, imperfections and redness with Laura's Iconic concealer. Oil free and long wearing, this unique two-toned camouflage allows you to customise the colour to meet your needs. Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive'
 
Before purchasing I had heard that this concealer duo was best for imperfections on the face rather than the eye area, which I agree with but I have been trying this out on my under eye area as well. The texture is quite dry and although it is dry I don't find it drys out my skin or looks dry on my face even on the under eye area. As the texture is quite hard it is best to warm up the product with your finger first. You can swirl you finger in the product or use a brush which ever you prefer and mix it on the back of your hand to get your perfect shade if you need to, then as you warm up the product is becomes a little bit more creamier and easier to apply but it is definitely not a creamy concealer by any means. As I said I have been using this on my  eye area as well as blemishes and I like it for both areas. I have dark circles and although they aren't terrible dark I would always find that no matter what concealer I was using my undereye circles would always shine through a little. However this Laura Mercier concealer conceals my under eye darkness as well as any blemishes perfectly, it is great and the best concealer I have tried when it comes to coverage. I would say the coverage is full coverage and you only need to use a little product as it is very pigmented which is another plus. I've been setting it with a little powder and it lasts all day. As for creasing, I have experienced a little under the eyes, but nothing too much.
 
Overall I really like this concealer, I love the fact that you get two shades as it means you don't have to go out and buy a lighter/darker concealer when your skin tone changes. I also love the coverage and how pigmented it is. I would really recommend this if your looking for a full coverage concealer as it does a amazing job at concealing, I like to use it on blemishes as well as my under eye area, but I can see why some people wouldn't like to use this concealer on their eye area as the texture is dry so it's not the easiest to blend. You can purchase Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer from SpaceNK for £26.

  1. Even though this sounds fab I've never got on with concealers of this consistency, it dries my already dry skin out even more! The packaging is super sleek though!

  9. I love the idea of mixing your own perfect colour, it's such a pain finding the perfect match for your skintone in the winter, only for it to change in a few months time! xx
