The perfect concealer not only has to work hard, it has to look 'invisible' while doing so. Call it the MVP of your makeup kit — concealer is truly the unsung hero of facepaint. And finding the right concealer is never an easy task, as getting the right texture, shade match and undertone can be tricky. Laura Mercier's Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Concealer not only comes in 12 shades, it is designed to match different skin undertones: It is categorised under Warm, Cool and Neutral shades. We also love the creamy texture that provides medium to full coverage, and can worn without any creasing for up to 12 hours.
The best way to put this concealer to the test? We used it on models Cheyenne Chesney (she uses a mix of shades 2W and 1N) and Ann Lopez (she uses 5N), as they set off to try out the concealer in different lights. From the harsh strobe lights of a club to the soft, diffused light at sunset, see how the new concealer measures up under these conditions and pick up some useful tips along the way.
