The Concealer Dream : Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage

Our concealer is basically our life-saver, we know that sounds a bit dramatic but when you suddenly break out in blemishes the day of your second date with the guy you really like and want to impress then yes, concealer is a life-saver!

We have tried countless concealers over the years, and with hundreds available in all different textures, creamy, solid, sticks it gets a little confusing and hard to remember which one did what in the first place. However there has always been one that has stood out for us above the rest and that is Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage.

Secret Camouflage has been around for years but we first came across it when watching one of our beloved and most trusted YouTubers and decided we had to go give it a go! Although the concealer comes in 8 different shades, each little palette comes with two tones, one to match the skin's undertone and the other to match the skin's depth of colour meaning you can mix the two to together to achieve your ideal shade.

The key thing about this concealer is that it is a high coverage one, so not only will it cover the worst of blemishes but it is also great for covering any pigmentation or discolouration of the skin and best of all it stays in place all day.

We recommend applying the concealer with a concealer brush or even your finger and gently blend, however this concealer can be quite drying so we like to mix it with a little moisturiser for better application. We use shade SC-3 and have included swatches below!

Although this concealer is our go-to and by far our favourite it's definitely not an under-eye concealer as it is far too drying and hard so make sure you do get a special under-eye concealer for this area.

Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage is available from all Laura Mercier counters or online here.
