I spotted this pallet arbitrarily while I was purchasing mac blushes. Not being a major mac fan I was amazed by the color mixture in the pallet. I bought this in medium, which consist of 6 different colors. They are perfectly blendable, so you can match your skin tone flawlessly. It also involves of color you can use under your eyes, as well as one highlighter color. I think this is by far one of the supreme concealers I have purchased in terms of the infinite combination you can build. The texture of the concealer is smooth. It goes on thriving without really the need of warming it up beforehand. Also it is not dry which is a plus.
The unevenness of my skin tone is what makes foundation and concealer such a pain in the *ss AND a pain the wallet! My forehead is darker than the rest of my face, my temples are darker than my forehead, and my lower cheeks (around the jawline) is paler than the rest of my face. My inner cheeks have redness and the rest of my cheeks and nose are normal. So what happens when I have a pimple on my jawline, forehead, and cheek? I need to use three different concealers.
This palette is the answer to my problem. Why didn't MAC come out with this before?
I purchased this in Medium, which includes NW25, NC30, NW30, NC35, a yellow corrector, and a peach corrector. They also have this available in Light (NC15, W10, NC20, NW20), Medium Deep (NC40, NW40, NC42, NW43), and Dark (NC45, NW45, NC50, NW55). All the palettes includes a yellow and peachy corrector.
Although the lightest shade is still a bit too dark for my jawline, I can deal with it. Nonetheless, this palette is still absolutely amazing! I can simply mix whatever shades, and I have my very own custom concealer! Concealer/corrector palettes aren't a new concept, but I like this palette better than all the other ones out there.
My only complaint is that the coverage is not up to par with the opaque Studio Finish Concealers, but I guess these are buildable. When I run out, I'm just going to scoop out my Studio Finish Concealers (and other cream concealers) and put them in this palette, for convenience and its travel-friendliness.
It retails for $40.
Would I repurchase? Yes.
I have only just bought this palette because I realized I needed a corrector for my Boing no. 4 concealer.
I bought medium-deep, perfect for my nc43 tone. Very happy with it. Not heavy not cakey and lots of colors for me to mix and match to my tone.
Weirdly enough the Boings yellow undertone gives me a brighter lift than even the correct Mac concealer colour that comes in this palette. So I use the corrector and then Boing....(which settles in my creases, pretty annoyed with my Boing)
Fair to say this doesn't brighten just conceals, maybe because its not an under eye specific concealer.
UPDATE: changed to NO for repurchase and rating to 3. Its just too drying for me ( will update again once the HK humid sweaty weather starts) also the correction is not great considering I have such light circles to begin with.
i'm nars sheer glow in syracuse, MUFE mat velvet in #65 and LM Tinted Moisturizer oil free in Caramel
i'm a girl in between shade in concealer it's very difficult to fond the conceal that match my skin toned
i love this product, i got in medium deep, it made my life easier,
I have been using MAC studio finish concealer SPF 35 in nc42, nw35 and makeup forever full cover concealer in #10 and #12 and i always have to mix two color to match my skin toned and in the end is kind of expensive for me
although this palette isn't the same coverage (as studio finish concealer), but i got cool and warm shades to fix and conceal, and i can do more thing with it, if i empty shade, i just simply put in my regular studio finish concealer
I purchased this in LIGHT; the palette is offered in Light, Medium, Medium Deep and Dark. Within the palette, you receive 4 shades of concealer and a yellow and pink corrector. Not a bad deal. For me, however, the concealers fail due to the fact they don't offer enough coverage. I have been using MACs Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 for years and thought this palette would be the same coverage... it isn't. If you have minor circles, though, it's fantastic. It's also great as it offers warm and cool shades and you can use the pink corrector to "fix" the warm shades if you are a NW and vice verse. I won't buy it again, because I don't need products that won't work for me.
This little kit has OTHER uses. The product is PERFECT to use as foundation when traveling. No more dealing with bottles, leakage, TSA requirements, etc. I just toss this in my bag and I'm covered for 1-3 day trips. The shades can be used for touch-ups over my regular foundation/makeup during the day. They work as an eye-lid base for my shadows. And last, when I empty a shade, I simply smoosh in my regular Studio Finish Concealer (I have a few shades for different times of the year and for correcting) and I now have the PERFECT little concealer/corrector palette!!
