New Laura Mercier Concealer: Hit or Miss?

Laura Mercier launched a new concealer this year called "High Coverage Concealer for Under Eye". I love me some concealers so I decided to pick it up and give it a go. 

Here is the online description "A unique three-in-one, highly pigmented concealer designed to cover, de-puff, and brighten dark undereye circles, while nourishing and smoothing skin. A little goes a long way, so just use a “pin drop".”

Other info:  There are 12 shades in this concealer range. I have shade 2 which is the 4th lightest shade ( I have fair/ivory skin). There is .27 fl oz of product. (comparison: NARS .22 fl oz, MUFE Full Coverage .5 fl oz) 

I have been using this concealer the past two weeks and unfortunately it just does not live up to my expectations. I think Laura Mercier makes beautiful foundations and powders and I love her secret  concealer. This concealer is definitely full coverage but I think it looks chalky on the skin. I noticed, pretty much every time I wore this, that it does this weird separating thing on my skin. It kind of makes me look like I have scales. Also, they are not kidding with they say a "pin drop" this stuff is THICK. Its actually kind of hard to squeeze out of the tube. The "de puff" claim is hard to review. I don't have super puffy under eyes and when I do to lack of sleep I usually use an eye cream or roller ball before applying my makeup. I can say that there is no noticeable difference right away but maybe with use over time? 

I think for the price, you can find something much better. I would recommend her Secret Concealer or Bobbi Brown Corrector if you are looking for a corrective under eye concealer. 

Of course, this is just my opinion and I would always recommend trying products for yourself. Some products may not work for me that may work wonders for you. This product was just a miss for me. 

I purchased this at Sephora for $28.00. You can also get it on the Laura Mercier Website

If you have tried this product let me know your thoughts!
