This compact contains 2 shades you can blend for the perfect shade, and the coverage is fantastic - seriously, it'll cover anything. I'm told that the formula is oil-free and contains witch-hazel, so it's great for covering blemishes, and I find that it actually helps to dry them out. (*NOT FOR USE UNDER THE EYES. I've read an alarming number of reviews complaining that it's not a good undereye concealer, and no surprise - this is a dry formula, and the witch hazel will irritate. Laura Mercier has a separate under eye concealer, the Secret Concealer, which is much richer and more emollient to suit delicate skin under the eyes. If you want both, LM also do an Undercover Pot - 1 of each + a brightening powder - downside is you can't mix the shades because they're different formulas, but good to use on the go.) You need a good concealer brush to apply this - because it requires blending, your fingers won't really cut it. To avoid contamination, I use the end of the handle to scrape out a bit of each shade and blend it on a small area on the back of my hand. This way also saves too much ending up on the brush. A little bit goes a long way, so use it sparingly and this'll last you ages.
Don't like it as much as I used to.
I loved the fact that you can customize it to your own skin and the coverage is good but mine dried out on me. If I'm paying so much for a product that has a 18 month self life I want to get as much use of it as possible. The warmth of my finger won't break the product down and I can't use it on blemishes cause it dries my skin out. What a shame.
Amazing will repurchase
The shade is a little to light for. My liking but once combined mixed you get the best coverage blends wonderful not greasy, best selection of colors for every women for me is thumbs up the this concealer duo. I walk in humid and it last all day for me I'm out for six hours and with my foundation it barely gets dewy I believe this is far the best but I hardly have scaring or acne just blemishes. But for this amazing quality and staying power I will repurchase again and different shades :).
Gives excellent coverage without looking cakey or obvious. Very long lasting as well. I love that there are 2 shades that can be mixed to create the perfect color regardless of the season. My skin goes a shade darker in the summer and this saves me the hassle of buying a new shade of concealer with each new season. Also, it's quite big, but still very portable. I expect it will last about two years with daily use. The mirror it comes with is useful for touch-ups. I don't recommed this for the undereye area as it's a bit dry and may look too heavy there. But it's godsent for redness and all sorts of discoloration on the rest of the face.
This is my go to concealer. I can use it all year long because I can lighten or darken the concealer as needed which is so nice!!! It has very good coverage and goes on smooth. This is an amazing product. I absolutely love it!
I didn't really know about this product until I started working at the Laura Mercier counter. This product is AHHHMAZING! I break out around my chin every now and thn and it really helps it cover it really good. Its amazing how this thing works, it even covers all my moles; I have wayyy too many moles on one side of my face. I usually use it after I apply my foundation and tab all the harsh end around with my finger, and then I set it with laura mercier translucent powder to give it a flawless look :) <3
