La Mer The Radiant Concealer Review and Swatches

Say hello to my new little friend:

La Mer The Radiant Concealer!

Jump ahead for my review and swatches of this new concealer from La Mer.

$65 could prove too much to splurge on a concealer but honestly I’m willing to spend my life savings on anything to make me look well rested and flawless. I can’t be the only one feeling that way!

The new La Mer The Radiant Concealer doesn’t come cheap but it does what it promises and that my friends is worth it’s weight in gold.

This concealer comes housed in a super chic white case with a mirror plate proudly displaying the “La Mer” on it’s cover. Kicking up the packaging further is the fact that it comes with a faux leather carrying case and mini concealer brush and here you have yourself a super chic piece of cosmetic.

The Muse is in love with the fact that Le Mer continues to extend it’s cosmetic line further and further as of late and of course couldn’t be happier about a concealer release as hey she happens to be utterly obsessed with concealers as you may know from reading her babblings.

With a formula that sports an SPF 25 and gemstones that capture the light to mask dark circles and blemishes this concealer is ready to do battle with your worst flaws.

I have dry under eyes so I normally seek out the most moisturizing concealer I can find but I do so admit that a concealer with a harder, tackier texture actually offers me the longest wear. This is the formula this concealer sports. It’s not creamy or moisturizing and has a harder texture than my normal round of coverage but it still manages to blend seamlessly and wears incredibly long. My dry eyes don’t seem to mind the formula at all so it’s not creeping into fine lines or caking up. Once blended it wears all day without failing me. The pigmentation is very good and it manages to conceal my main worries such as fine lines, puffy eyes, and dark circles.

Overall, it’s ability to wear stay in place all day makes it a gem of a concealer for this Muse. It covers completely and allows a flawless, well rested look.

Loves it!

Quite a great concealer. The price is high but well worth every penny.

Anyone try yet?

Love it?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’m so happy you posted this! Could you tell me if the color looks the same in person as it does in these pictures? Or is it darker? Please let me know. Thank you 🙂

    Hi Muse – Awesome timing – i am looking for a new concealer and i use La Mer foundation already and just love it. Yeah, i know it costs a lot, but it is the best stuff I have used ever. Very sheer but makes me look 10 years younger (at least i think so).

    I am going to try this concealer the next time i am sompl,ace that sells La MEr. thanks for the tip.

  • Belle

    Hmm, how would you compare this to the Becca concealer or the Cover FX foundation/concealer in the texture?

  • Karen C

    Hello~ What colour are you in this concealer? (We don’t have a La mer counter in Canada and I’m thinking of ordering this online, but I totally don’t know what to get). I ‘m thinking either Medium or Dark. I wear “Beige” in Cle de peau (which is a tad light for the under eye area)

    Thanks for the help~!

    I was speaking to La Mer today for shade recommendations & the rep told me that they are discontinuing their skin color line soon. As soon as it all sells out, it will be gone for good. I am so upset because like you, this concealer has been my best friend. I almost cried! I found your site when I was searching for shade swatches. I am using light now, but think I could use medium and get away with it. I wanted to ask what color are you using that is in the swatch picture.
