Question
GOOD FOR ACNE?
I have acne and I was wondering if this was a good concealer to hide my blemishes?

DO NOT.. use it if you have acne.. I would not recommend it.. It would make your imperfections pop out more and even though it is great coverage.. the redish color would be gone but it makes the bumps look more obvious AND it runs out easily from your face.

I do use this to cover my blemishes, but if you have really red blemishes try using a concealer that has some green it in. Green helps to reduce redness. Try going to a Sephora store with no makeup on and ask someone there if they can apply it for you or if they can help you pick out a concealer that is best for your skin type.

My way of blending may be a little different but I promise it works. I take a beauty blender and dip the pointed end into the concealer. I then very gently pat the concealer back and forth under my eye until everything is covered (usually I go back and forth about 3 times to make sure). NEVER RUB ONLY PAT. when I do it this way I don't have to set it afterwards and I never get any creasing of the product. Bonus: I never get my fingers dirty :)

You can apply this in different ways to conceal your under eye circles. I like to pick up the product with my middle finger (your softest finger) and dab onto your under eye circles. I then take my finger and lightly blend back and forth. if you are a little bid older or wrinkles run in your family, use a concealer brush to prevent premature wrinkles.

I use a concealer brush and then tap with my ring finger to blend. It is meant to be light reflecting and to tone down the shininess I use my bare minerals and mineral veil. *note* A little goes a long way.

Apply in small amounts (i use my ring finger) and pat it around the eyes. I apply after I have put on my Bare Essentials bare minerals and then put mineral viel on top. I don't have any issues with caking and it covers my dark circles.

A concealer brush is the way to go. Apply a little at a time. Start at the base of your dark circles, not at the tip of the undereye, then work your way up with small gentle patting motions. Do not move the brush back and forth in a sweaping fashion. I find that it makes the coverage less even. Then take your warm fingers and gently blend the color in. The warmth of your fingers should help warm up the cocealer so that it blends easier. Then take the same brush and apply a tinted moisturizer that matches the your overall skin tone on top of it. Only use a little so it doesn't cake. lastly, apply a small amuont of setting pounder. So not use a powder that is heavy or else it will cake.

concealer color
I have used this concealer in the undercover pot before. I love the color of the concealer in the under cover pot-2. I ordered the level 2 secret concealer and it is too dark for me. Will the level 1 secret concealer be a better fit?

I have the Undercover Pot #2 as well and when I decided to purchase the Secret Concealer itself, I realized that the creamy concealer in Undercover Pot #2 was not the same shade as Secret Concealer #2. I found it closer to Secret Concealer #1. I did a lot of swatches comparing container to container. I'm curious what shade of creamy concealer the Undercover Pot #1 is matched to as I think Secret Concealer #1 is the lightest.

Easiest thing to do would probably be to go into a Sephora store and have someone apply it for you to find the best match to your skin tone.

All you can do is try it first before you buy! The number 1 should be lighter than #2. I use the #2 and I am a fair-skinned freckled 53 year old and it is a perfect match for me.

Honestly, I had the exact same problem...
I was going to take mine back to exchange for the lighter color only 2 days later, but I could already see the bottom of the container!!! So it didn't feel right to return something I'd used alot of...
I forgot to mention that in my review, but you bring up a valid question; there seems to be a pretty noticeable difference in the 2 (only 2) colors they offer. I have a yellowish tone to my skin and get really nervous that I'll leave the store with something too dark, or orange... But when we tried the light on in the store, it seemed really really noticeable. So I went with the darker as well and later wished I hadn't.
Though if I bought it again, I would get the lighter shade and:

a. maybe blend the two to make it work, or
b. figure my foundation is usually a dead-on match so I can use that to blend the lighter color eye concealer

This or Erase Paste?
I am wondering if anyone has tried both this and Benefit's Erase paste. I love erase paste, but I'm finding it sometimes begins to crease in the fine lines around my eyes. Is this any better?

This! Erase Paste is very orangey and greasy compared to Secret Concealer. They're similar as far as texture, but this one is the better choice!

I've tried both and as far as being crease-resistant the Laura Mercier is a real winner. You should *definitely* try it. I have a feeling you won't go back.

A darker orange (one shade lighter than your skin tone) may work. Call Laura Mercier. There are more pigmented undereye concealers sold on the LM site (deeper red and more pigmented yellow).

It depends what undertone you skin has. If you look better in pinks and purples, the pink undertone may work better. If you look better in oranges and yellows, try the warm one.

For what it's worth, I have blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin- the pink undertone matches my skin better.

It has enough coverage but I would check the sizes...it is a small pot of product. You may do better for your money. A little goes a long way but for large areas you might want to compare products.

What is the right shade of secret concealer to use for my light medium skin tone? I use her tinted moisturizer in "Sand" and it is a good fit.
I can't tell from the website colors whether or not to order #2 or #3. I want something that blends with the "Sand" tinted moisturizer. I know that too light concealer can look weird but I can't tell if #3 would be too dark.

I think #2 Secret Concealer would work fine for your skin tone. Just make sure you use a small amount and blend well. If it's too light just bring it back to switch to a darker shade. That's Sephora's policy that if it doesn't work for you to bring it back. Good luck!

I would try the lightest shade. I've found it's best to go lighter first, than too dark, with concealer. I would also guess from your description that you probably have lighter skin. I would definately try light!
