Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer Has Me In Proceed with Caution Mode

I should be excited about the new Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer ($28) which is a new full coverage concealer that apparently will hide pesky undereye circles for up to 12 hours with a natural, soft focused effect. And most important it also promises to deliver all-day hydration!

But I’m not excited. I’m actually proceeding with the utmost caution. I remember 2014 when Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer For Under Eye was released and I felt positive it would turn into my absolute holy grail. Fast forward five minutes into using it and my horrifying reaction to how hard the texture was and how dry it was not to mention how much tugging was involved to get it under my eyes.

In life we learn from our mistakes and in most cases we know not to repeat them but brands, well brands can make the same mistakes over and over and over again without really learning anything at all from the original mistake. I have high hopes that Laura Mercier took into consideration what was wrong with High Coverage Concealer for Under Eye and did better with Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Concealer.

I have to say that the flat, fuller sponge applicator intrigues me. If you’re a makeup lover you know that a good applicator can make or break a formula. I’ve run across lipglosses and concealers that have really good formulas but apply like absolute crap because the applicator is all wrong. We’ll see if Laura’s applicator makes or breaks this formula.

I will without a doubt try it out for myself because I can’t resist concealer. But I’ll most definately proceed with caution.

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’ve really never gotten into Laura Mercier – I think I had one of the tinted moisturizers and I don’t remember having strong feelings for it. Once I get through my concealer backlog I might try this, but getting through that newish Bobbi Brown undereye one is going to be a slog. Talk about drying! I thought it was just the tester, nope – its’s the consistency of half-dried oil paint. Decent coverage, but my god. Who wants to yank on their eye area like that?

    I look forward to when you have caved and reviewed. ; )

      Which Bobbi Brown? Curious minds! Def caving soon! I can’t resist concealer 😀

        Instant Full Cover. I tried it today with a brush and it was better, but you still really have it massage it. And after all that the lasting just isn’t that great.

        • Isabella Muse

          oh yeah instant full cover disappointed me too. 😛 I blame the applicator! I never tried with a brush. I was always disappointed at how it sheered out! Full cover? Nay.

    I think I’ll give it a try…
    It reminded me on the very high hopes I have on Shape Tape Foundation, resisting all this hype around it. I’m just waiting for your review to buy or pass. I have to say I absolutely love your honest reviews and appreciate when buying new makeup!

    • Isabella Muse

      Me too! I’m hoping it doesn’t disappoint. I’ll have a review up shortly! Thank you, truly I am very, very very flattered <3!

    Hmmm. Since it is packaged in a wand tube, I am assuming (perhaps wrongly!) that it won’t be the texture of half dried wall spackle, like the other LM concealer shave been! Jeebus, I never did figure out how to apply those without nearly ripping off the skin under my eyes! This can’t possibly be that bad…can it?
