Mine is NW20.
The coverage is ok but end of the day, it would become patchy n abit cakey.

I was expecting a lot more out of this concealer than I got out. I primarily use it for covering up red marks left over from past acne. I don't think the texture is creamy enough to be applied around the nose or under the eyes.
The packaging comes in a little jar, and it is a cream based concealer. It's a bit hard at first, but becomes more pliable when warmed up by the skin. It still isn't as creamy as I would like, though. It also tends to melt off your face during the day unless set with a powder (for which I use Bare Minerals summer bisque, which I think might actually do a better job of concealing on its own.)
I've tried applying this concealer under and above my foundation. When placed under, I feel like it just smears off once I apply my foundation. When I apply it over the foundation, I don't like the finish of it as it is on the dryer side.
The coverage is not terrible, but could still be improved upon. I don't like to use a lot of the product in one area, because it does look a bit thick and cakey. It doesn't totally cover the evidence of red marks.
I will probably use up what I have, and then continue my search for a better concealer.

I have this in NW25 & i really like it. I have slight undereye issues and some acne scars. I warm this up with my fingers before i apply it under my eyes since it makes it go on smoother. It is super pigmented so the pot will last me a long time. Its pretty cheap for $15 since other concealers are $30+ ish. I like that its small so i can throw it in my purse for touchups (since it does fade after a few hours) I think im going to look for a liquid concealer after im done with this, but ill probably go back to studio finish

I wouldn't recommend using this product for under-eye circles. It's much too thick and it'll end up looking quite cakey and obvious. That being said, if you need to hide blemishes or scars, this is concealer you are looking for! Build this up over the blemish or scar (I would recommend using a brush to do this, or even the front of your nail [oh yes!]) because your fingers will begin to dissolve it. Of course, you'd blend it with your fingers on the edges outside the area you've covered to make it melt into your skin and look natural, but keep the concealer concentrated (but smooth, again using a brush or the front of your nail) over the scar or blemish you want covered. Be sure to set it with a powder, because since it has a creamy consistency, it WILL move.
I do feel this did a pretty good job addressing my needs (I have a small plum-colored scar on my cheek) and I've seen it work wonders over blemishes on other people! If you want something for under your eyes, I'd look for a concealer that's a little more liquid. I'd also say that this concealer is a little drying--but you can't have it all in one! It does complete its purpose. You may have to play around with it for a while before you figure out how to work it for your own needs--but once you do, it'll work beautifully!

HG for blemishes/discoloration. It will cover anything and EVERYTHING without looking cakey. Wouldn't use for under eye, especially if you have dry under eyes.

This concealer is amazing !! I know some people don't like this for under eye circles however for me this covers my under eyes like NONE other and looks good ! For blemishes it's amazing too.
I also own the Make up forever Full cover and although i would LOVE to say that is my favorite I would not repurchase it again.
The coverage that studio finish gives is just OPAQUE !
My FAVORITE !

This is a very good concealer but sadly, MAC doesn't seem to have a perfect shade for me. It too thick for undereye concealer and I refuse to believe that it could look natural under the eyes so I wouldn't recommend it for that. I wish they had this in my shade, it would be HG for my old acne scars!

my skintone is NC30 and I use the NC30 shade for under my eyes and blemishes. I wish they had NC25, but oh well, it still works amazingly.
The coverage is astonishing and it doesn't look drying at all (but maybe it's because I have oily skin?).
I will purchase this forever!

Im no longer a MAC virgin, I was so happy to finally purchase my first MAC product! lol I have always had problems with finding a good concealer for my under eyes. This so far, is the best ive tried. Only problem is, it is not long lasting.
UPDATE: With studio fix fluid, it doesnt last long.. started using estee lauder double wear with hd setting powder, works amazing. will buy again. I had the wrong shade to begin with!

This is the only concealer that covers my dark circles. This is a full coverage concealer and is very thick, so it will settle into fine lines if you don't set it or apply it wrong. We all have fine lines around our eyes, so if you are going to use this in the eye area, apply it only on top of the dark circles/ indents. Then blend it out evenly and set with a powder. Remember to apply your foundation first, then put the concealer on top. If you apply the concealer first then wipe foundation on top of it, you will move the concealer around, decreasing the effectiveness. Use a 242 or 252 eye brush or a foundation brush for great application. Pat it on, set it and goodbye flaws! Also works great on blemishes, and even all over for maximum coverage. Will purchase over and over again.
