Love this concealer! It is full coverage, it is fairly priced at $18 and it has a pump. I blend this under my eye with a beauty blender and it does not crease on me at all! I wish it came in a tube; once you reach to the last quarter of the bottle the pump does not work and you waste a good amount of product. The product has a lot of hype on YouTube but it does live up to its name. For those looking for a drugstore dupe I would recommend Jane's concealer for only $8 but it will crease. I will continue purchasing MAC concealers.
I purchased this product because I needed a concealer and I've seen some makeup gurus use it for undereyes and blemishes with good results. I can't really review thoroughly as I feel that this would be better used in the summer when my skin isn't so dry but so far I like it. It's not great for the undereyes at this point as it is very dry but is definitely better than any other concealer I've tried so far. (drugstore and otherwise) It actually stays on my skin opposed to every other one I've tried. I am still determined to find a better undereye concealer but for blemishes and general discoloration, this product is good... and very pigmented. (definitely use sparingly)
I really like this concealer. The consistency, the pigmentation, the staying power, and the blend ability all work wonderfully with my acne-prone skin. I have multiple dark spots from cystic acne and this concealer along with my Tarte foundation really cover it quite well. It also works great on under eye circles. My only problem with it is the packaging, as many other reviewers have mentioned.
So far so good!
My skin has always been pretty bad acne wise so I was really looking for something that would help cover this. I was matched in the shade nc15 as I have very fair skin. I have no problem with the whole pump issue, I am able to get just the right amount..but that's just me.
The coverage in this is amazing!!! It glides on beautifully and almost melts into your skin! It drys pretty quickly so you have to work quite fast. It also really lives up to its "pro longwear" name because it does last a full day! I put it on in the morning, spend a whole day at uni and I come back in at 5 and my makeup has stayed on perfectly! The only reason this doesn't have 5 stars is because it may be breaking me out (wah!)
My skin has gotten a lot worse since I stared using it.. Which is annoying.... :(
Hopefully it is something else I've been wearing but if not I will have to stop using this!
I'm kinda a concealer junkie, and I have to say that this is one of the BEST ones I have tried!
It covers almost anything (it is quite buildable), and the colour range is good.
I'm about NC15-NC20. The NC15 matches my winterskin perfectly, and I love MAC's colourranges. I'm very pale, but my undertone is more yellow than pink and I find a lot of really light concealers to be either pink or orange in colour.
Also I like how the finish is mat, but not drying at all! I feel like especially the drugstores either make their concealers freaking glittery or so mat that they dry out the skin.
I really don't like the packagain. It's chic, good-looking and stuff, but not practical at all, unless you want to cover your whole face in concealer.
It has a pump that gets out SOOO much product, so I have to pump it out into a little container. It's kinda annoying.
Also I don't always like to wear this under the eyes, when my skin is too dry since this concealer tendes to crease a bit. Nothing crazy, but it does a little bit.
- Well, it's still my favorite concealer and I use it every single day!
I will deffintly recommend it if you find hard to get a matching shade in the drugstore, or just want a concealer that's gonna cover real good! :-)
I like this concealer but the packaging sucks! There is still a fair amount of product left inside the bottle but it won't pump out anymore. I can't even un-screw the top to retrieve the product inside. A 9ml bottle gets you about 5ml use of product before the pump runs dry and you can't get anymore product out. I've bought this product three times now and the same thing happens each time. Shitty!
I bought this during the summer and I've been hooked ever since! It gives the nicest coverage and a little goes such a long wear. I find the NC range is perfect for my skin tone even though I normally use the NW range for MAC. It doesn't oxide and all and stays on the skin all day long. It is perfect for concealing spots or for highlighting/concealing under the eyes as it doesn't settle into any lines. I do wish that it did come in a sturdier packaging as I am worried about dropping it and the bottle smashing everywhere.
Favorite concealer ever! It covers the darkest bags, the redest blemishes! Anything. Worth every penny. The only downfall is the packaging, even if you press softly on the pump way too much comes out and a little goes a long long way with this concealer. Even on days where my face was covered in pimples one pump was more than enough!
Now There are a few things that I do NOT like about this concealer. Overall I would buy it again, but there are a lot of things you need to get used to when you use this. First of all, I had to buy my second one, the reason being, that I accidentally dropped it, it fell about 3 inches and the glass shattered. It got really messy and damn its glass, the glass is really fragile. So now I just pump all of the concealer into a plastic jar that I have and use it from there. Second of all, the pump is great, for you do not introduce bacteria into to concealer, but it just pumps WAAAY to much at least for me, so therefore the plastic jar is a great solution for me. Third of all, this stuff dries fast! I use the oil control lotion and the prolong wear foundation and use this concealer. It dries fast, so i work really fast with my brush ad then with my fingers to "buff" it out. I let my foundation+ concealer sit on face for about 10 minutes before I apply powder, bronzer and blush. So with all of these three things being said there are great things about this that I love love love. The colors matching is perfect for me. Usually I have a problem with concealers seeping into my small lines in my skin, under my eyes and in my pores. This stuff doesn't do that. I doesn't feel cake, and it doesn't seem to get into every crease making it look worse. It looks very fresh! and last all day! also I think that it is priced well. I had purchased other concealers for more money and they creased and just didn't conceal much, so this is totally worth it and it last a long long time!
Okay, I was prepared to love this. I don't have a lot of dark circles, but the skin on my undereye area is a bit darker than my face and needs brightening. I am a ruddy NW20, and bought the same color. Good match, but I think I almost could have gone with an NW15 for more brightness. However, the reason I will not re-buy is that literally the second time I used this I dropped it and the bottle shattered. I have dropped many glass cosmetic containers (clumsy, I guess) in my life, and have never had anything break this easily. I cannot re-purchase until they re-package. I agree about the pump issue as well, but was willing to overlook that if it worked well. For this kind of money, they should use a better bottle.
