The best concealer I have ever tried
This concealer is very smooth and is very light weight. It covers dark spots and blemishes very well and also makes my eyes look very big and bright when applied under them.
It is like a foundation in a different form. If I'm going out and I don't wish to wear foundation and want something very light weight with a lot of coverage, I just need to apply some of this and I'm good to go. I find that I am able to build this concealer up if I need to and doesn't look cakey when I do so!!
This is a wonderfully creamy concealer with impressive coverage. A word of caution be careful with this product as it tends to crease easily under the eye. I use it mainly on blemishes and discolorations. It does well on active breakouts but it struggles when trying to cover up deep acne scars. Overall a good concealer!
This is the only MAC face product that I have which is skin correcting. I bought this mainly because it is cheaper than my Laura Mercier concealer and there was more shade selection of this product. Of course I'm the lightest shade.
I do like the coverage that this product gives, it covers all my blemishes on my face and also dark circles underneath my eyes. So with product if you're using it under your eyes, the most important thing is to apply eye cream FIRST otherwise you will have a cakey and dry looking under eye (draws more attention to the flaw). The formula is a thick consistency compared to most concealers, I actually like that about the product, it allows you have to more control of how much you want to use in certain areas.
I apply the concealer first with the MAC 14 brush and then I take the MAC 217 and blend that out to the rest of my face. That technique kind of gives you a smoother looking finish compared to when I just use the 194 brush alone or my fingers.
I find that this concealer does last all day, I usually set it with Makeup Forever HD powder to make sure it lasts, and again if you use eyecream it will not look dry or cakey after the powder.
So far this product has lasted me a while, I do use it daily. It's a good buy and I would repurchase it.
Great for Blemishes
This is definitely the concealer for blemishes but its a little too heavy for the undereye area. I use this over my foundation to cover up redness, pimples. It really does help with discoloration and hyper pigmentation which I used it in NC45 on my best friend and she couldn't believe how her skin was even and smooth looking.
Yes definitely. This I like. It has a good coverage, it stays a while. but I have problems with that I can stay dry under the eyes so it can be a problem for me. but I have a hopeless skin type so I have to be careful under the eyes so it should not be ugly. but use it on the nose and chin and it does the job for me
