It’s All A Massive Cover-up

I don’t know about you, but I don’t get enough sleep. I have good intentions, but what with one thing and another (work, dishes, laundry — and let’s be honest — facebook and blogging), I’m lucky to get in bed before midnight — and these kids of mine don’t understand the concept of sleeping past dawn. So I can’t say I’m all that surprised when I look in the mirror each morning and see an extra from Thriller staring back at me. Truly, I can’t blame it all on the kids. I’ve had dark circles under my eyes since high school, and age has done nothing to improve the situation.

It’s safe to say I’ve spent more than my fair share of time and money searching for the Holy Grail of concealers — that miracle product that provided coverage without being cake-y. Throw in the fact that I needed it to last all day in the Alabama heat and humidity, and it seemed that I was dreaming an impossible dream. Then, in my late 20′s, I stumbled across Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage. The sales staff at Laura Mercier tends to plug it as a blemish cover only. But allow me to clue you in on the true awesomeness of this makeup miracle.

Secret Camouflage comes in several shades — each containing two tones (which also eliminates the need for a summer and winter palette). The concealer itself is of a pancake consistency rather than a liquid, so it has the staying power you need to ensure you’re not looking haggard by mid-afternoon. Using a concealer brush, you custom blend your shade and apply it only to the dark areas under your eye. Most of the blending is done with the brush. But with a quick pat of your ring finger and a light dusting of loose powder, Secret Camouflage can take you from Undead to Drop Dead Gorgeous in a matter of seconds.

I really can’t say enough good things about this product, and it works very well with the Olay Definity Tinted Moisturizer I mentioned last week. But don’t just take my word for it…try it yourself, then come back here and tell me what you think.

    i don’t think we can get that brand here, but I’m into your description of tinted moisturiser, concealer and loose powder. No foundation? Nice.

    That is such a bummer! Can’t you order it through Amazon? We need to conspire together to find what shade of foundation you use in a brand we both have, then I’ll go figure out which shade will work with it. THEN you can order it via the internet. LOL! How many steps was that? Hey! There’s no length too great to go to for a great concealer, right? :)
