Like Risi-Leanne, I have had a wonderful relationship with LaMer from the very first time I tried the original LaMer Moisturizer. There is nothing like LaMer for my skin when I'm traveling on dry air planes and have to subject my skin to all skins of makeup for my work.
As far as LaMer cosmetics, I'm a relative newbie, so I was excited to try the concealer, since that is one of must have products I have on me at all times to look put together no matter what the day is like!
The Radiant Concealer is a great product because it has everything that I love to have in a concealer. It's lightweight, creamy, silky smooth with a perfect consistency that is not too thin or too thick. It was easy to blend with either my fingers or the included brush. This is a cream to powder formula which also eliminated the need to set my concealer with powder (= time saver)! It's also very concentrated I only had to use the smallest amount spread over both eyes easily and gave me fantastic coverage (=bye bye dark circles!).
I was extremely impressed with the shade I used which worked well on my skin tone, and the lasting power of the formula. There was no creasing, melting, flaking or changing on color in the concealer. At the end of the day my under eye area looked as good as it did in the morning when I first applied it.
I also found it perfect as a touch up/spot concealer for small blemishes and uneven marks, with the same long lasting results - in hot temps and humidity as well. The fact that the concealer also has SPF 25 is another fantastic feature. This little wonder will be in my makeup kit at ALL times now.

Editor's Note: Since LaMer makes some of the best color cosmetics on the market today I would still love to see a greater range of colors for the foundation/powder/concealer :) - RLB
