Review: Mac Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

 Mac Studio Finish NW25

I have tried many concealers, but I just keep coming back to the Mac Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer.

My Mac foundation color is NC35. I use NW25 for my under eyes because the pink tone counteracts the green and purple tones of my dark circles. I use NC35, which is yellow based, for blemishes on my face. 

When I first opened the package, the concealer was very creamy. After I started using it, the product dried up in the pot. I can't use a brush to apply it onto my skin because it feels very dry. I have to apply it with my finger to warm up the concealer. I warm it up by rubbing my finger clockwise in the pot; however, I end up having a lot of product on my finger.

During the summer, the oils of the concealer settles on top. I either have to wipe the oil away with my finger or "mix it"  by rubbing the oil into the concealer. Either way, I am wasting a lot of product because an excess gets picked up by my fingers. However, I've had the NC35 concealer for about 10 months, and there is still 50% of the product left in the pot. 

This concealer is amazing. It lasts all day with setting powder. It also covers my dark circles and blemishes; however, you have to be careful. If you apply too much, it'll end up looking cakey. Another problem is no matter how little I apply, it settles into my natural fine lines under my eyes, but I haven't found a concealer that doesn't do that.

Although a lot of product gets wasted, I am in love with this concealer because it gets the job done. This will last you a long time, and is well worth it for the price of $16.50 for 7 grams at Nordstrom.  

Did this concealer work for you?
