Le Metier De Beaute Classic Flawless Finish Concealer SPF18

Le Metier de Beaute Classic Flawless Finish Concealer (£44) is a compact stick concealer (2.3g). There are 12 shades on offer, which I was quite impressed with, though the numbering of  shades does not go from lightest to darkness so its worth checking instore or from trusted on-line swatches, for your correct shade.

I bought this concealer for under eye use as I expected the creamy texture would break out my very acne prone skin.
It gives medium coverage, it feels extremely creamy and there is no tugging at all on application, it just glides on. However, because of this texture I really need to set this with powder to prevent creasing. The finish is natural and does not look cakey. Unfortunately, even with powder this does not have a long wear time, by mid day I can see a much reduced coverage.
I did try this on my face for review purposes, it did break me out each time, however it really worked well to cancel out redness, imperfections and lesson pore visibility.

I bought shade #01, its a tad too dark and warm, shade #3 might have been a better option as that is meant to be lighter in colour with a neutral undertone.
Swatched below L-R: Estee Lauder Double wear Light 01, Le Metier 01, Chanel Beige Clair
For me this performs better as a face concealer (unless you suffer from acne) than as an undereye concealer.
This is a highly regarded concealer however personally I think whilst its good its not exceptional and for me the lack of lasting wear time is an important factor, especially given the high price tag.
