I love the colour and this blends well under my eyes. But my main need for a concealer is to cover my blemishes and I feel I need a lot of product to cover them. However, I suspect my skin breaks out if I use a lot of this product. I can also see the oiliness in my pot at times.
I think I'll switch back to a creamier product after this.
I just got this concealer and I absolutely love it. Goes evenly on my skin and stays on for a while. It really works on my dark circles under my eyes. Def worth it.
I really like this concealer because it covers my under eye dark circles. I gave it a 4 because it doesn't stay all day or atleast 12 hours. I haven't tried it with a full face of foundation for 12 hour wear. I always use it with loose powder. But it gives a fresh, dewy, flawless look. And it still feel light weight. Loving this and I recommend this concealer.
I have used many concealers and this one is great for under eye circles and blends in well with whatever type of foundation you use over the top of it. I am very satisfied with MAC's concealer!
Packaging: its a concealer in a black pot. Packaging's decent, but it seems cheap to me, but i dont mind. Mine dried out in around 3 months, but i always use clean brushes to apply, so idk what happened to it, now i have to scrape off the top frequently to get the product underneath Q.Q, but on the bright side, you get a lot of product in the pot.
Lasting Power/Coverage/Consistency: It's a very very nice coverage. It's on the thicker side, so if it didn't give nice coverage, i'd be mad +_+ If you apply it onto a large area it can feel quite heavy, or i find that even if i layer it up a little, it looks cakey and quite heavy. The lasting power isn't that great though. I have very oily skin and this doesn't last on me for more than 4 hours, then it would wear off and i'd have to reapply, sadly T.T it performs better in winter though !
Price: I bought mine for $22.00 CAD. It's a fair price for a high-end concealers. Although you get a lot of product in the pot, it's still not worth my $22.00 because of the lasting power, IMO.
Overall: I think it's a decent concealer. Although the thing I'm most unhappy about is the shade range. Yes there is ATON OF SHADES, but none of them fit me Q.Q ! Im an NC25 and they only have NC20, NW25, and an NC30. Y U NO MAKE NC25 T.T ! Its not amazing but its not bad. I might consider repurchasing if they came out with an NC25 and better packaging >.>
I have tried every possible application, every possible primer and setting, but it doesn't work. After 10 minutes it creases and my under eye area looks like the Sahara dessert. I prefer my dark circles rather than all those lines showing off. Out of curiosity: how do you do it? I think it is awful!
I love this concealer. It is a high coverage concealer with quite a matte finish. I use it both for around my eye area and spot concealing. It is also great for underneath your eye brows as well. It has a beautiful creamy consistency and it blends out beautifully. It can have the tendency to crease around the eye area so you do have to apply it carefully. I like to apply it with either a synthetic concealer brush or eye shadow blending brush or even my fingers as that works well too. Using a primer underneath it is good idea as it it keeps it from creasing and helps to prolong how long it wears throughout the day. And also set it with a powder too obviously. This has been my HG concealer for about the last year now, I absolutely love it and one pot last forever. I would totally recommend this concealer it comes in a range of shades and undertones that I think would suit nearly every one.
Amazing concealer for under eye dark circles. It can be drying so use with a primer or moisturizer. My best friend and I live by this little concealer from 19 to 26. I also have no crows feet, so I really don't think it's bad for sensitive under eye skin. When using it on dark spots and acne though, it does melt off quickly. Maybe try the prolong wear Mac concealer for that.
My go to concealer for blemishes but not undereyes. This eccentuates my natural undereye lines even more and they are noticeable enough by themselves. But im in NW45 and it's more salmony so I do use this under my eyes sometimes with some translucent powder and it doesnt crease as much. This concealer is also pretty creamy also and I'm not the biggest fan of that because I already have oily acne prone skin. And it breaks me out even more if I apply heavily. Packaging: i have the old packaging and it looks like the MAC paintpot packaging and I dropped the lid on my bathroom floor and a side of it cracked. boo hoo. But my absolute favorite thing about this concealer is its blendability and natural looking but full coverage. I can wear this alone on a good day (no foundation) with some translucent powder! A sure plus! Oh and this lasts long! I've had it for 2 months and just hit pan!
I find that this applies very well with a wet sponge, and nothing else will do. When I use my finger, it is blotchy and uneven, and with a brush it clings to the bristles so I waste product. The lady at the counter color matched me well, and this looks wonderful under my eyes as well as the few blemishes here and there.
I wouldn't repurchase because this tends to break me out if I use it too often, and it oxidizes after about 4 hours, but I'm glad I tried it, so this gets 3/5 stars.
