This is my favorite concealer. I love the coverage and application. It isn't cakey or too oily. It really multitasks. I use it for everything: undereye, redness around nose, blemishes. I do find that it can feel a little bit dry or hard, especially in the winter. On those days, I put it on my finger and let it heat up for a few seconds. Then it goes back to being beautifully creamy. It also works very well with a brush.
It has SPF!!! and there is a huge color selection, just like all of the MAC line. Also, it lasts FOREVER.

Okay so I'm raving about this product! I bought this pot like more than 3 years ago and it's still not spoiled. It hides my undereye circles quite well, good coverage on that. And it just makes me look awake after application. It's a bit hard when you scoop some out of the pot but it melts once you apply it on your face. What I also do is I put on eye cream first, then conceal my bags for easier application. I haven't yet found another concealer that's as great as this product.

I really like this! I saw a beauty gal on youtube talk about this, and so I really wanted to try it. First off, the packaging is so cute, love it little pot, and i use it with a brush i wash every night, so its hygenic for me. and the pot makes me feel like a makeup artist, haha ;)
I got in NC20 but need to get the next shade up for my summer skin,otherwise it's a good color match.
I really like the cream formula, it's really smooth, plus this covers all redness if you have a blemish!
im impressed MAC :)

I recently bought this in NW25 as I thought I needed a lighter shade but his doesn't suit me at all. If any one wants to swap this please contact me. Thanks!

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 !
