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.

I have this in SC3. I bought this when I bought the LM Oil-Free Liquid Foundation. It's drying and not creamy. Now that the weather is cold...the concealer doesn't pick up well on my brush or my fingers. I have to warm it up by blow drying the concealer for a couple of seconds with the hair dryer. I will not be buying this again.

i think this product is quite decent. i have pretty bad under eye circles and am constantly looking for the perfect concealer to disguise them. this is not exactly perfect, but the best i've found so far. i have this in sc-3. it's sort of dry and not as creamy as i would like it to be. i use the lighter, yellower color to try and correct the color under my eyes and then use the darker color sparingly on top to blend everything more towards my skin tone. i liked the packaging of this product until the little clamp that holds the top of the compact down broke.

i LOVE this concealer. it covers the vein that is by the inner corner of my eye and my purple undereye! this does NOT slide into fine lines on my face. it also lasts all day. Now to the one bad aspect... my skin has turned dry with the fall/winter season. this product is trying on dry skin. so i'll probably switch back to MAC for winter if I can't get this to work for me.. but i LOVE this. it covers and doesn't move. what more could i ask for?

Es demasiado seco para mi contorno,necesito poner el corrector inmediatamente despues de la crema.
Corrije bien pero no aguanta muchas horas.
No es que sea el peor que he probado ni mucho menos pero no volvería a comprarlo.

i was looking for a creamy concealer and i found this! this product is amazing to me, it hides my dark circles and stays in place the entire day. on days i'm too lazy i wear this alone instead of with foundation and i think i look presentable still. love it!
