Zoom In On: Laura Mercier Undercover Pot

Concealers are a staple in every makeup-loving girl’s stash. These are especially handy when we have zits or blemishes that we do not want to take centerstage in our faces. They are also the instant solution to even out discolorations in the facial area like the undereyes and the sides of the nose to create a flawless look. Contrary to what many think, it is a pain-in-the-arse to look for a concealer that works.

For the last six months, I had been using Laura Mercier Undercover Pot.

Here are the things that I like about it:
 
  • features two types of concealers, Secret Camouflage and Secret Concealer; both formulated to conceal undereye circles, blemishes and scars 
  • very easy to blend 
  • consistency of both concealers are not too dry and not too gooey or creamy 
  • relatively long staying power (about four hours max, but bear in mind girls that I am not trapped in an airconditioned room when I work). It probably would last longer for girls who stay inside their offices. 
  • very chic and compact packaging with two compartments, the upper one contains the concealers and a mirror and the bottom compartment for the loose powder that is used to set the concealers.
I don’t like that:
  • its packaging requires that its user bring a separate concealer brush for application
  • the design of the concealer compartment is not very hygienic since the entire contents of the product gets exposed to air, dirt, and other undesirable elements every time the lid is lifted. 
  • the concealer shades are now too light on me huhu A beach outing last month made me a shade darker. I haven’t used this lately since I don’t want to sport a reverse-raccoon eyes look at work.
I love this concealer kit but I could not say that this is my HG. Simply because I haven’t tried too many concealers yet.

Ciao! Hope you find this review helpful.
