After hearing that my beloved Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer may  be being discontinued. FYI it’s not. It was just due to popular demand that it was out of stock! Thank goodness! But on a bit of spending spree. Sorry bank! I decided to give the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer a whirl.

Why I bought it?

It’s heavy duty concealer promising to cover up all blemishes and dark circles you may have.

About the product?

There is two shades, One light and one dark. The consistency is very hard and doesn’t look like it would blend easily.

How I use it?

I take my ring finger into the  lightest colour. I use my fingers as they warm up the product which makes it easier to blend. I primarily use this concealer for blemishes and redness. I prefer to use a liquid concealer under my eyes.

On the blemishes I just tap this concealer onto it without worrying about blending it in just yet.  To blend it out I use a Real Techniques Dome shadow brush to just buff the edges, I don’t touch the actual blemish.

If I was using this under my eyes, I just take the lightest colour on my ring finger and blend it in with my finger. If it needs additional blending I will use the Dome Shadow brush as well.

My thoughts? 

As much as I like this concealer I think my €6 Collection one does the same job but cheaper. I also think I personally prefer liquid concealers. This is by no means a bad concealer  I just prefer liquid. The coverage of this concealer is good and doesn’t leave your blemish cake-y and dry considering it is a very dry formula.

Price?

$33/€36

L’Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer |Review and Dupe

DSC00093

 

L’Oreal is seriously wowing me at the moment with all the dupes its pulling off.

What I like about it?

The brush is attached which makes it really easy to apply although personally I still love to blend it with my fingers.

Its multi-purpose meaning you can conceal those under eye dark circles and highlight your cheekbones and cupid’s bow all with this one product.

The coverage isn’t too heavy which means its perfect for everyday use and it doesn’t crease throughout the day as long as you really blend it in.

I picked up the shade Light which is lighter than my natural skin tone so it does highlight and brighten my under eye bags.
