Love this concealer! I have never been a concealer person, I have clear skin and never thought I needed it and didn't see the need to add an extra step to my routine. This all changed when I was having my makeup done for a wedding trial and the MA used this concealer. My skin looked flawless! I got it that day and use it all the time and apply it with a brush like the MA did. To me it is the difference between skin looking pretty good and looking amazing!
This is one of the best concealers you can get. I love the fact that they come in a huge array of tones and you can mix&match for different areas of the face. It does slightly dry the delicate under-eye area but not like Becca concealer does and stays better than Bobbi Brown. It stays on for a very long time if you apply an under-eye moisturizer before using it.
I have been searching for a HG concealer and definitely found it with MAC. I don't have horrible under eye circles but they're there thanks to my ethnicity. I am normally an NC 30/37, but I know NC shades will only make your under eyes ashen, so I got this in NW25. It makes them disappear completely. Peachy tones neutralize the blue and gray under you eyes and this shade is perfect for that. I am pretty light right now and I thought it would be too dark but it is perfect. Goes on a little cakey (Up close, I micro inspect my makeup) but after it melts to your body heat its fine. Definitely recommend for women of Latino, Middle Eastern, Asian with yellow/golden undertones that have dark circles!
This concealer works for me in the summer when I'm more tan than I am in the winter. Right now it's winter and it is not working for me like it used to. It goes on a bit harsh. The texture is a little hard to work with on your face and in your problem areas. It's like a thick paste...or very hard clay with very little moisture in it. I use this as an under eye concealer and it's just okay. It tends to crease by the end of the day which bothers me because I expect my make-up to look as good as it did in the morning. I think I'll just use this as my summer concealer.
I love this concealer but it can be a little tricky to match and apply. I have neutral warm tones, but I bought NW20 because I find that if I use a NC color as concealer the places I conceal will turn way too yellowy when I apply my foundation over it (I use Studio Fix powder in N4 or NC20). So, I find that this color is a perfect balance for a great looking finished product. I use it on the odd blemish and to cover my dark circles. It can be a little hard to blend especially in the eye area, so what I do is take a brush and use it to swipe some product on my finger (to avoid putting my fingers in the product itself), warm it up between my fingers, and then just swipe it on my circles. Works perfectly every time. Love the price ($15.50) and will definitely buy it again if I ever run out, but you seem to get a generous portion and definitely don't need to use a lot to get the desired coverage.
EDIT: I have since stopped using this as much because of the new Studio Sculpt concealer which is alot creamier. No more warming up the product needed! Studio Finish is still decent however, especially if you want the SPF.
Not for me. Color is really off. I put it on in my bathroom, walked into natural light and looked like a leopard-spots everywhere. I blend blend blend, and still look splotchy. Almost orangey on me. Hate. Swapped w/my little sister for some duo lash adhesive (suckka!) It's back to my MK concealer until I find my HG!
My HG concealer ! Amazing for covering up scars or blemishes !
Might be too thick and hard to blend under the eyes sometimes but overall great concealer ! Im on my 2nd pot of this and i love it , i will def. continue on purchasing :)
Its quite a nice little concealer :) i thought i got ripped off for the amount of product but i think this will last me a good while
Very good coverage - great for scars, spots ect.. but NOT ideal for under eyes - bcos its too thick and its hard to blend
I like the packaging - its very cute n compact - great for travelling i guess..
- good coverage
- lasts a decent amount of time
- good for acne
- hard to blend
Overall, i would buy it again =]
This is probably a 5-rating product, but due to genetics, stress and late nights I doubt there really is a concealer out there that can do the job with my dark undereye circles. That said, I am still using this happily, and when used with its corresponding foundation the NW20 concealer does its job as best it can.
This is the best concealer that i can find so far!!
Nothing better than this.
It can stay for a long time and has a very fantastic coverage.
Cant wait to buy another pot.
