Great concealer duo. I have this product in SC-4. I use the salmon-y color for my dark undereye circles! Then I top it off with the lighter shade to brighten up my eyes. Works wonders, and also worth the price. Although, I've hit pan with the lighter shade more than the darker one, just because I like using the lighter shade for highlighting and whatnot. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that this concealer duo is really opaque! Sometimes when I'm really on the go, I would just spot treat and set with powder, works great! I wouldn't repurchase though just because I like seeing what else the beauty market has to offer. Hope this review helps! Have a great day (:

I love this because it helps cover of my post-acne redness. And since i am very fair it is hard to find a good foundation/concealer match for my skin. But with this I can create my own perfect color, since it has two colors that you mix. The only thing I dislike about this is that it does look a little heavy, and it is difficult to use, also you have to buy the special expensive brush to go with it or else it won't work as good. But overall, it is a great product!

This is a great "must-have-product" for me! I'm a natrual blonde, NW25 with green eyes and very pigmented redish lips. With this concealer (I use (SC3) I can totally hide every little bit of redness which is what i want. BUT I only use it under my eyes. My skin is soooo dry right now (winter) that this stiff and dry product just doesn't work on my skin at the moment ( I use Clinique all about eyes in my skin, A great product for concealing red areas on the skin). You also need to work with it for a while so that it melts and doesn't create a cakey layer that looks horrible. But it covers so nice and it is really really worth the price! My only problem with this is that I tend to use just one color...and I end up having to buy another pretty fast! ;) BUY IT and you'll love it too!

No concealer I have used has even come close to the excellent, but subtle coverage of Laura Mercier’s secret camouflage.

The dual palette is just perfect for mixing the exact concealing shade - I find that single-toned concealers are never right. I use SC2, which, when mixed, is perfect for covering the red pigment on my face.

This is a highly pigmented concealer, perfect for concealing blemishes..

You do have to know how to best use this product, though. I don't use the secret camouflage brush; I use a flat eyeliner brush from Make Up For Ever for small blemishes, and No 7 concealer brush for any larger areas that need concealing. The smaller brush is perfect for precise application.

I mix the product on the back of my hand first. This is really important, as it warms the product, helping to ensure even coverage that doesn't cake.

A brilliant concealer, that I will buy again and again and again - I have been using it for 10 years. Yes, it is expensive, but it is well worth every penny. You can wear it in all seasons, as you can mix the 2 shades to match your complexion, and the fact that it is so highly pigmented means that a little product goes a long way.

I think this is a great concealer because there are 2 colors with it and you can mix them on the back of your hand or whatever to get the perfect shade. They cover great.The only issue I had is that because of their consistency I guess they get onto each other and the packaging a bit, so not excited about that. But, they last a long time and I will purchase again.

Let me tell you, I have dark acne scars. My skin just scars without my picking anything. Okay. So ive been using Macs Pot Concealer, and it doesnt cover as well as i wanted.. So i than tried Full cover by MUFE. Still gave about the same amount of coverage... Sucks..So now what? So a Laura Mercier Rep came over and tried this on me. And i looked in the mirror and i couldnt even find my scars!!! totally camouflaged! Im Nc40 in mac and 153 in MUFE, and SC-6 is perfect on me.
You need a concealer brush, you dont need LMS brush but any concealer brush..and its a process you have to use it a couple times to get the hang of mixing colors...for me its 2 swipes of light and 1 of the dark than i tap it on the scar. Just because its winter and im a lil lighter right now. but i really like it and it seems like so much product that it would last me a very long time.

Totally agree with review below by Mzlisaa.

It is a bit drying - which is good if you have problem blemish areas to cover - but do not use this under you eyes, you will age about 5 years!

I use this a little more generously than recommended by the LM salespeople recommend - i use a larger concealer brush that they do and dont mix on my hand - I find that i can apply direct to my skin and blend it in just fine rather than wasting product on my hand. I use it on any blemishes and also acne scars/healing areas - generally I have a quite a lot of marks - and find it covers better than any other concealer i've tried. I can even just wear this alone with powder if my skin is having a good day.

I think the reason I like it so much is because it isn't at all oily or creamy - which is why it doesn't work under the eyes - which is tricky as I would love a concealer that worked all over my face including under eyes.

Overall would def buy again.

Yes I agree with you most, it is not creamy and it does dry out. That being said it does give the best coverage I have gotten out of any concealer. Love it.

Pros:
-Pretty good coverage
-If you know how to use the separate colors, you can get a really nice effect with them

Cons:
-Drying. Very drying.


Bottom Line:
I really wanted to like this product. I really, really did. I was so excited to get it, I had heard so many good things, and despite the fairly high price I was overjoyed after my purchase.

However, after about a week of use, my eyelids became horribly flaky. Scaly, even. Huge pieces of skin just drying up an falling off, leaving angry red marks behind. I didn't connect it to this concealer until after a week or two, when I realized that this was happening no matter where I put it: blemishes, undereye, lip.

My disappointment knows no bounds. I tried to make this work, but to no avail. It might actually end up in my trash, I have no use for it whatsoever.

I'm genuinely surprised at the number of reviews which ranked this product as mediocre! It is the only concealer I have ever used which is long-lasting. For around a year I was using MAC concealer and thought it was the best, but it would often slide as I have quite oily skin. I had heard about Secret Camouflage so many times, in magazines (it's received many rewards over the years!), from friends, etc, but I never actually considered buying it. Admittedly the price was quite a big factor in this, as it is over £20 (£25 if I remember correctly?) but I now realise that it's so worth the money. I've been using the same one for the past few months and I reckon it still has a few months left. The only annoying thing is that I dropped it and as it's in a compact the latch broke so it opens in my bag sometimes... but it's not liquid so it doesn't drip. I love that you have to mix the pink and yellow based sides together to match your skin tone exactly, I hate it when your concealer is slightly off colour but this never happens with Secret Camouflage! If you've been looking for a perfect concealer, definitely check this one out.
