Review : MAC Studio Finish Concealer

Today another review about this MAC Studio Finish concealer. This is my 2nd studio finish concealer which I just restock it last month. The previous studio finish concealer can last me for 1 year. That's very long right? :p I've been using this concealer for 1 year plus already. So far, this is my favorite concealer!
The Description : ( found from here )
A lightweight, creamy, discreetly opaque concealer. Provides a smooth, long-wearing invisible coverage for all skin blemishes. Water-resistant, fragrance-free and non-acnegenic. This emollient-based, lightweight concealer is so concentrated that a tiny amount can provide opaque coverage of the skin's imperfections and discolourations. It effectively covers dark circles, blemishes, moles, tattoos and birthmarks. Enriched with antioxidants (derivatives of Vitamin A and Vitamin E), it also contains silica to help absorb the skin's oils. Concealer has broad spectrum SPF 35 protection and is available in a wide range of colours. It can be applied with a medium to firm fiber brush (try the 242 Shader Brush), a latex sponge, or the fingertips.
Ingredients :
NC35 SPF 35
This time round, I choose 1 shade lighter than my skin tone
and it brighten up my under eye area. That's why I love it a lot!
The Swatches :
Before blend

After blending.
The consistency is very thick and creamy texture. It gives the medium to full coverage. How I apply this concealer? I prefer using my fingertip than concealer brush. Cause, it is so easy to blend to the area that I need to conceal. This concealer can also cover up any spots or redness and etc. It also very buildable. Only a little part which I don't like is, after a few hours, it does settle into my fine lines. But its okay, I can still apply it again :D I always use this concealer after applying my foundation.
What I love about this concealer :
  • Last long.
  • Water-resistance
  • Medium to full coverage
  • Brighten up my under eye area
  • Very small and cute. Perfect to keep in the makeup bag
What I don't quite like about this concealer :
  • After a few hours, it does settle into the fine line

If you are looking for medium to full coverage of concealer, why not give it a try for this studio finish concealer :) This concealer cost SGD$30. You can find this at any MAC counter.
Have you tried this concealer before? What's your opinion about it?

  1. I haven't tried a MAC concealer before but a great idea to go a shade lighter so it can brighten too :)


    1. Hi Georgina :)
      You should try MAC concealer!! :D Yeah, a shade lighter will brighten up the under eye area :)

  2. Is it drying?

    One of my main problems with concealer is that my already dry blemishes such as my acne gets even dryer...

    1. Hi Ari :)
      I don't quite recommend this concealer for dry skin. It'll be looking much cakey. But, if you want to give it a try, you can also try to apply moisturizer, primer, or the Benefit Porefessional before you applying the concealer :)

  3. I think I'm going to try this, I've been through so many concealers, but I never had a mac concealer and this one looks good and it doesn't look to heavy, so thank you for this post:)

    1. Hi Marissa :)

  4. Thank you for following ! And I followed u back on twitter and bloglovin:)

  5. Hi irna thank you for this review I've heard good things about Mac concealer and medium to full coverage is what I'm looking for. But do you think it is for combination oily skin? But I will try it out :D thank you for the detailed review~

    1. Hi Misa ^^
      Thank you for dropping by :)
      Yes. It is combination oily skin :) If you have dry skin, I suggest to apply primer/moisturizer first before you apply the concealer :) Update me if you already try it :D

  6. Hey doll! Have you tried MAC Pro Longwear concealer for under the eyes, you might find that it's a lot more hydrating for under there as the eyes are very sensitive! I use this concealer for blemishes and redness and then the pro longwear for under the eye and it's just as good but doesn't settle into fine lines.

    I love your blog, always a lovely read too!
    Lots of love

    1. Hi Jayde ^^
