Laura Mercier has thought about virtually every single type of concealer need you might have with her ever expanding collection of concealers.
The latest is for those of you who need HEAVY DUTY under eye coverage. Once again, Laura Mercier comes through 1000% percent with Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer For Under Eye .
The concealer is extremely concentrated and pigmented - so much so, that about HALF of a pea sized amount was enough for the area under both of my eyes. (Note: Even If you have very dark circles, I would still recommend starting with this amount and then building up with a gentle patting motion using a concealer brush, until you achieve your desired coverage.).
The product is silky and smooth, but a has a bit of thickness and "heft" to it as well. It glided easily across my skin and covered my moderate dark circles instantly. It remained smooth and flake free after application. It had enough moisture that I felt it was not drying, but if you have very dry skin/lot of fine lines I would highly recommend the extremely moisturizing, Laura Mercier's Secret Concealer formula.
For me, the color match (Shade #5, shown, above) was perfect, and the subtle highlighting effect was very impressive. The finish was completely opaque, but natural looking. Although this particular concealer is intended for the under eye area, it also works very well for covering scars, redness and blemishes.
This works well with finishing powder over it for a completely polished, matte effect, and I found that the effects lasted a full day 8+ hours before any fading. If you do need to touch up for a night time outing, you then need just a smidgen more to create your previous coverage during the day.
Also, because of the small amount that is needed, this is an excellent buy, price-wise (you wouldn't need to replenish for over 8+ months - and that's if you used it every day).
If you're been looking for the "holy grail" of heavy duty concealing, Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer For Under Eye is IT. - RLB
