I first read about Laura Mercier's Secret Brightening Powder here and have been wanting to try it ever since. This product turned out to be exactly all that it's hyped up to be and more. I have a bad case of dark circles (as I've mentioned numerous times) and lots of fine lines under my eyes. LM's Secret Brightening Powder helps lighten up my dark circles and because of the light consistency of the powder, it doesn't settle into my fine lines. I absolutely love this product and it's become a long-lasting companion with any type of concealer I use.
I must say that it is important to use the right brush with this product. You want to use a hard brush that will pick up the light powder formula easily. I use Laura Mercier's Camouflage Powder Brush. The synthetic bristles pick up the powder easily; it's one of the best brushes I've ever used!

2. Use your brush to blend the powder around a little in the cap, just to break up the particles a little more.
