Review: Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer for Under Eye

I’m not a huge concealer lover and only have a small collection of mainly drugstore concealers but as winter will soon be here and my under eyes going through a bad phase of darkness I decided to try something a bit more heavy duty and heavy duty this is!

Packaging

The packaging of this is pretty standard but nice all the same. It comes in a box to keep it protected and the product itself is in a squeezy tube. The hole where the concealer comes from is a nice size, not too small and not too big which makes it easy to use and apply with no mess.

Colour Match

I have the shade 2 which I think is a good match to balance out the colour under my eyes, however, I wouldn’t use this as a concealer on the rest of my face though just because it wouldn’t really match as well and it doesn’t blend in very easily.

Texture 

This has got to be one of the thickest concealers I have ever used and this is one of those products that needs to be warmed up in your fingers to have a nice application because it’s so thick. I tried just using a brush and it took so long to spread anywhere and didn’t look anywhere near as smooth and nice on the face. It doesn’t really feel heavy or as if it’s sitting on your skin which is a bonus considering how thick it is!

Lasting Power 

For me, this is much more of an evening or special event concealer because although it’s thick and it doesn’t go patch or move around my face it does tend to crease after a while. If you’re willing or have the time during the day to touch this up you might really like it for every day use but I much prefer using this on the odd occasion especially as I have dry skin.

Overall, the High Coverage Concealer for Under Eye is an expensive product at £24 for 8ml but this is definitely a full coverage product that you need the smallest amount for so will last a good while. If you’re in the market for a heavy duty concealer this is so worth checking out because I really like this one.
