MAC Cosmetics

MAC Cosmetics (MAC standing for Make-up Art Cosmetics) was founded in Toronto, Ontario, Canada by Frank Toskan and Frank Angelo in 1984 with the assistance of chemist Vic Casale. The first U.S MAC store opened in 1991, in New York. The company's products were initially aimed at professional make-up artists, but are now sold to consumers worldwide. Estée Lauder Companies acquired a controlling interest in MAC in 1996, then completed their acquisition of the company in 1998.

Concealers -MAC Cosmetics -Pro Longwear Concealer

When I first tried this I thought I had found my holy grail concealer. I used it on my face to cover small pimples and redness and it has great coverage, lasts through the day and doesn't budge. Unfortunately it broke me out :( I was getting big, painful pimples which I haven't gotten in a while and I blamed so many other things before realising this is what might have been breaking me out. It has a very strong smell too, which might have had something to do with it. Once I discontinued its use, the pimples stopped coming back.

So overall, it's a very good concealer, unless it breaks you out!

Pressed Powders -MAC Cosmetics -Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light

This is a lovely light coverage foundation powder that I use to set my foundation because I like a dewy soft finish. This does not mattify, but it makes my skin look lovely and even and adds a bit of extra coverage. Good to set a blemish with too. The shade Light is good for my ppp neutral skin, it may be too yellow if I piled it on but I use it sparingly in my t zone and it helps tone redness.

Concealers -MAC Cosmetics -Studio Fix 24-Hour Smooth Wear Concealer


I’ve always been a bit of a Mac loyalist when it comes to foundations and concealers, more so foundations, but for me this stuff is fab.

I wear SFF in NC15. I grabbed the corresponding concealer and, as other reviewers have mentioned, it runs very light, so at present it gets used under my eyes and occasionally for a little bit of highlighting, rather than blemishes. However this is the only negative for me!

Formula is creamy and smooth, applies and blends well with brushes, fingers or bb/sponge. It’s not too thick or too runny, not too creamy or too dry. It doesn’t settle into fine lines or cling to dry bits, and stays well put. 24 hours wear is a stretch in all honesty, but other than KVD tattoo liner, nothing stays place on my skin for that long, mo matter how well I prime or set.

Over the last few years I’ve tried Bobbi Brown concealer and corrector, (this Mac is less drying and blends better), Touche eclat (this Mac is thicker and better coverage), NARS radiant creamy concealer (again, Mac is creamier and less drying) and UD Naked (just didn’t sit right on me).

The tube and doe foot applicator is much better than a stick or a pot (at least, I prefer it to these) and the size is just about right.

I’ll definitely repurchase. I may even splash out on 2 - another NC15 for under eyes and perhaps a darker shade for blemishes. That being said, I don’t really get them enough to justify another concealer, and I’m currently using Beauty Pie Unbeatable Concealer for this which is good.

If you are a little tan or high tan, its the ELIXIR of beauty. Mixed with foundation, all alone for something lighter, as a highlighter on cheekbones, just go for it. I am medium tan as I swim all year outdoors and thought it would make me look too yellow, as I have green undertones. But I made such a mistake...It gives a youth healthy shine that last all day. No cracking, not oily, a velvet illuminating finish!!
Bought two bottles as it is not on main products, it was only for summer 2018. Dont miss it, go for it with eyes closed.
