Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Brush - Pull Apart
Product design change
I have been using the secret camouflage brush everyday for the past 3 years and when I lost it I was devastated and had to replace it right away. I knew I wanted to get the same brush again because the size of the brush head is perfect for concealing blemishes and the pull apart design is perfect for traveling and sticking in your pocket for emergency touch ups. However when I received the brush in the mail, I noticed the design of this brush was slightly different than the original. The color is black instead of the dark red/brown that matched the compact of the secret camouflage concealer and the rear end of the brush is round instead of flat. These design changes have no impact on my daily use of the brush, however, I did notice that the pull-apart design was not as tight as the last brush I owned from LM. The metal seems thinner and the two pieces do not stay together at all. Every time I pull it out of my bag or pocket one end goes flying across the room, which is just not sanitary. I'm hoping it's just a flaw in this one particular brush and that the others fit together perfectly fine. I still have faith in LM products and will be returning to Nordstrom to exchange it for the same brush! Overall, the brush quality is the same, but I was looking for the same ease in traveling as my last brush.
