I didn't care for this at all.. A little too thick for my taste, when the MA did a makeover on me I walked outside and did not have any dark circles (cursed with the hereditary dark circles). But if you don't put eye cream on forget it, you look like a racoon with orange under your eyes....This looks orange in the pot but once you blend and play with it is a good color, but I just didnt care for it.
I AM ON MY SECOND POT OF THIS AND HAVE TO REPOST!!!! THIS CONCEALER WITHSTANDS SWEAT/RAIN/SNOW/TEARS...This stuff is AWESOME. I was skeptical b/c of the price ($22) but, I was assured by the woman at Sephora i could bring it back (they are awesome, btw). I love the consistency, it is creamy and blends very nicely. I only get 4-6 hrs of sleep and work outdooors, so my circles make me look old and tired. I bought #2 which looks darker than it is. Once you swirl it around in the pot, it is a very nuetral yellowish beige that covers bluish/blackish circles very well. I use a concealer brush and/or my finger and i love it!!!! A little goes a long way so ever though its pricey, it will LAST. Overall, i look younger, and rested when i use this and like i said, you only need a little and once you set it w/ a translucent powder (which is all i use for face) it looks and covers great!!!!
It's a waste of money,did not work on my very dark circles.
I just bought my 2nd pot of this. I got a tan and my other concealer was too pale for me. I LOVE THIS CONCEALER!!! I have DARK hereditary circles under my eyes and this one (and Prescriptives) is the only one that even comes close to touching them. I love it b/c it is creamy and blends to look ultra-natural. No more raccoon eyes!
Love, love, love this product. At first I thought, why spend the money on under-eye concealer when I could just apply another layer of foundation? What was I thinking? Even though I have young skin, secret concealer instantly evens and lightens the color under my eyes and thereby brightens them tremendously. Just apply with a synthetic brush and pat into skin with two fingers. Then apply powder to keep it (and your foundation) on all day! It's now a staple application during my morning routine!
I didn't like this. Unfortunately I couldn't remember why I didn't like it and I bought it again after not using it for about a year. It makes my mascara smudge. No matter how much eye brightener or powder I use, after a few hours I have mascara (waterproof by the way) all over my lower lids. It doesn't camo the circles really well either. I don't even have to use concealer with the Prescriptives foundation I just switched to. No more of this stuff.
Good color, bad formula. Discovering Laura Mercier's "flawless face" products added a good 20 minutes to what used to be a 5-minute makeup routine for me. I wouldn't mind so much if they worked -- or maybe more accurately, if I could figure out how to make them work. I'm neutral-warm, between Warm Ivory and Sunny Beige, with gray-blue-purple eye circles, and I have this in #2. The color looks horrifying in the pan but it ends up just melting into my skin. It does tone down (not obliterate) the discoloration and surprisingly looks natural. My problem is that it blends away too easily, even just with the lightest of taps, and doesn't cover well. My guess is that there is too much oil in it because my other eye makeup smears much more when I'm wearing this, even with powder over it. Wondering if the peach-toned thing is the way to go for my type of discoloration, I'm experimenting with using a little of this as a corrector under other, drier-textured concealors I have. Not much success so far.
I can't live without this product! It's so amazing! I now use it everyday and i have to admit i threw bobbi brown concealer away because LM's concealer is much better!
This concealer is very smooth and creamy. I have #2 and it is a peachy color. I use this for my dark circles and so far, so good. The staying power is okay, I have to reapply about 3-4 hours later, but I like this better than the Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer because it is only one step. This is moisturizing for the under eye area. I've only used this once so far, but it seems to work. I will update if anything changes.
my HG concealer for dark circles, and let me reassure everyone, i have MONSTROUS dark circles. very pale skin (from my irish mom) and VERY dark circles (from my lebanese dad) that completely surround my eyes, and i mean under, on the sides, and on top and inner corners. it's my worst thing to deal with, and so i've tried TONS of concealers over the years, and this is the best one i've ever tried. its creamy and doesn't exaggerate fine lines or dry skin, it blends like a charm if you just pat pat pat it on, and stays on great, although i do set it with powder (i can't imagine NOT setting concealer with powder). the only gripe i have is no matter how much i apply right in the half circle directly under my eyes (one particular dark spot not sure how to describe it) i can NEVER completely block out all the dark color. but i honestly don't think i will ever get complete darkness coverage while still looking very natural (not tons of opaque product caked on) so i throw up my hands and jut out my hip! it's your best bet for all dark circles from minor to super major, and it covers blemishes decently, but i like a dried, thicker concealer for that. oh- and- i think it's maybe $22, but i've been using everyday for over a year (and i use a substantial amount) and still have atleast 1/2 left. go out and get it!!! **EDIT** LM Secret Concealer is a great product, but it never completely covered up my circles. i'm now using Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque, and the difference this one makes (compared to LM) is amazing! i never knew until recently that if your circles are purplish/blueish, concealers with pink undertones work much better than peachy toned ones. peachy concealers work best for dark circles that are more in the brown range, so i was using the wrong color for my dark blue circles. if you're using LM Secret on your blue/purple circles, stop by the BB counter and test out one of the Correctors in the Bisque range, and you'll see what i'm talking about! if you're circles are browner in color, i would still test out the BB Corrector in Peach instead of Bisque, i feel that BB's concealer covers a lot better w/much less product than LM's.
