Faking a Stress-Free Life with Laura Mercier’s High Coverage Concealer


Happy post Mother’s Day!

Hope you all had a great weekend because its Monday morning aka back to the grind. Even as a WAHM, the crazy week starts all over again. Leading such a hectic life can cause havoc on skin. Stress always shows its face right under my eyes, in the form of puffy, dark circles.

So not cute.

That’s why concealer is an absolute must for me. Who wants to go out looking just as frazzled as they feel? I need it to cover those dark circles and brighten up my eyes like I really got 8 hours of sleep. Oh, if it can get rid of puffy eyes too, then it gets extra brownie points from me!

That’s what Laura Mercier’s High Coverage Concealer promises to do. It’s 3 in 1 formula aims to cover up dark circles, brighten eyes, and get rid of puffiness. It’s ingredients like honey, Vitamin E, and fruit acid smooth and nourish skin as well. It also comes in 12 highly pigmented shades.

I chose Shade #6, the second darkest shade, bright enough to do the job and compliment my skin. Having so many shades to choose from was a big plus for me because as a dark skinned girl all “deep” shades do not fit all. Some are too dark while most are still way too light. This shade was perfect!




Using my foundation brush, I applied a small amount of concealer and swept it under my eyes and across my lids and brow bone. It glides on very smooth and blends well. Be careful not too much or you’ll look all kinds of crazy!

I set it with my usual pressed powder and foundation and viola’! Fresh looking eyes like I sit on the couch and watch TV all day!

What about you? How do you refresh your face after a long week?
