Last summer I was on the hunt to try a new brand of cosmetics, so off to Sephora I went. As luck would have it, there were two different brand representatives ready to assist me! My first stop was Laura Mercier for a quick touch up of powder, concealer and blush. The next brand was Marc Jacobs for a foundation match, mascara and lipstick. With so many products and so many choices, I didn’t know which brand to choose. As I walked around the store, I narrowed it down to what I needed the most. The winner was Laura Mercier!
Laura Mercier is the creator of the brand and a world-renowned makeup artist. She is the personal makeup artist to many celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker and Julia Roberts. She is best known for accentuating one’s natural beauty to create a flawless look. She started training as a painter at the age of 17. At some point, she decided to switch her talents from the canvas to the face. In 1996 she created her brand for women of all ages and skin types.
Now that you have a little background information on the brand, let me share the product I am reviewing. Today, I am reviewing the Secret Concealer. Here is the Glam: This concealer is high in pigment and helps to cover my dark circles from long sleepless nights. It does not settle into the fine lines around my eye area and it brightens to help diffuse the dark circles. It is long lasting, a little moisturizing but not oily looking. It is super easy to apply and a little goes a long way! It’s a natural look with a natural glow.
Here’s the Slam: When I applied it with a concealer brush, it was a little harder to blend and it looked a little cakey. However, I was able get a flawless look by dabbing a little on my finger and blending it that way.
In the past, my concealer of choice was MAC. Now, I love the Secret Concealer by Laura Mercier. My final grade is 5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH. If you are interested in purchasing this product, it is offered at Sephora and luxury department stores for $23.00. It is available in 12 shades and it will last even longer with the Translucent Loose Setting Powder. Happy concealing!
