Review: La Mer - The Radiant Concealer SPF 25

There are lots of concealers. My favorites include Bobbi Brown's Creamy Concealer and Corrector, Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage and Eye Basics and Jouer's Age-Repairing Brightener. Well... I have a new favorite. I must apologize to the aforementioned products, because I think you're pretty amazing. Fantastic, even, but this one left you all in the dust. Enter La Mer's The Radiant Concealer SPF 25 ($65). Once you get past the white plastic container, that makes it seem a little cheap, there is the holy grail of concealers. Here's what they say about it:

This treatment cream concealer instantly evens the skin’s appearance while adding radiance. Gemstones capture light energy to camouflage dark circles and blemishes, optically erasing imperfections to create a smooth, even finish. Precious marine and plant extracts help reduce the appearance of undereye puffiness, lines and wrinkles and minimize pores. Redness and discoloration are diminished as skin is continuously calmed and soothed. Fine layers provide buildable coverage. Skin stays naturally flawless all day. SPF 25.

Medium is a very peachy color. I didn't know if it would work for me. I use my ring finger to gently tap it on underneath my eyes. It makes me look bright eyed and bushy tailed, if that's even a thing. And I'm not someone who is well, ever, bright eyed and bushy tailed. So that's saying a lot. Set it with powder. You won't believe the results. Frankly, if you want to buy ONE concealer that you will use every last drop of, it's this one. I certainly understand your trepidation to plunk down $65 on a concealer, but seriously. It's a damn good investment.
Available in: Light, Medium and Dark.
