I've been wearing this concealer for about 3 weeks I wanna say & I really like it! I freaked out a little bit when the MAC consultant grabbed this to try on me because it'a texture is runny.. I have never tried a concealer like that before. She matched me very well & it looks great with outdoor lighting (I'm always worried due to most MAC stores being so dark inside!).
It doesnt settle into the lines around my eyes & doesnt leave me with white-ish or grey toned circles around my eyes. Only thing i dont like is the pump!! I feel like i waste so much :(
Overall, pretty happy with this.

I have this in NW20 and it is perfect for covering up dark circles and spots. I find it goes on and blends really well. It doesn't settle into my fine lines around my eyes and I find it doesn't even need to be set with powder (I don't like using powder under my eyes I find it looks dry and makes my fine lines look worse) I have really bad dark grey and purple circles under my eyes and this product doesn't cover completely but does make them a lot less noticeable and I haven't found anything that covers or stays on better in my hunt for the perfect under eye concealer. Too much does come out the pump but I just pump it out into a sample jar and I usually get 2-3 uses out of 1 pump.

I bought this as a full coverage concealer because I have some very stubborn acne marks that always kept showing through. It hides a whole lot but not everything so I was a bit dissapointed.
What puts me off using it is that the pump dispenses too much product, even if you are carefull it's still too much. You can actually do your whole face with 1 pump as a foundation. I wouldn't recommend doing that because it does look very cakey as it's not supposed to be used like that.
I don't know how anybody would be able to use this up in 6 months (what they recommend), I hate waisting products and try to use as much as I can. But I must admit I do keep my makeup much longer than advised because of that, but with something that goes on my face I try to keep it within reason.
I mixed this with my daycream and that works very well but I could still see some cakeyness, it settles in my lines (I'm 28 so there's not much to them but it looks like I'm 10 years older) and it accentuates my pores. So that wasn't really the look I was going for but maybe for somebody without dehydrated skin it would look good.
Now after a year or so I'm almost done with it and I just use it to lighten foundations that are to dark.
The best way to use it for me is mixing 1 pump of this with the Clinique CC-cream Superdefense, I have the shade light but it's still much too dark for me and with the MAC in NC15 I get the perfect shade. I'm happy I can finally use it and be happy with the result but I can't recommend a product that takes this much work to make it work and overall just looks very cakey.
It's surely not a product you quickly grab in the morning to rush out of the house.

This is a "when in doubt" product for me! I am in the shade NW 20 and I love it! This concealer is like cement for your face! It hides any imperfection or flaw that you have! Literally, every concealer creases on me and this is one of the few that don't! It creases a little tiny bit but nothing crazy! I love using this on my acne scars and sun spots! It covers them perfectly. This also lasts a very long time. When I need to hide something quick, I go for this! It smells kind of like paint but it's not overwhelming. It has a tiny pump, which squeezes out to much sometimes but that's really it's only flaw! Other than that! I adore this concealer! :)

So I've been using this concealer for 2 years or so. I used to use Select cover-Up in NC 30. I noticed the shades for Prolongwear is a lot darker and it ozidizes. I ended up buying NC20 and NC 30 and mixing them. I hate the fact that I have to mix them. The weird thing is when I use NC 30, it oxidizes to this dark orange colour but when I mix the NC20 and NC30, it doesn't seem to oxidize and I find it a bit too light. I can put more NC30 in but it's just a hassle to figure out the right colour. I strayed for awhile and started to try a bunch of other concealers like ELDW, Nars Radiant Creamy concealer, Nars concealer stick, Hourglass stick concealer. Besides ELDW, i think all the other concealers creased or didn't have really good staying power. ELDW also turns into an orange colour...so having tried others, I must say MAC prolongwear is actually pretty good...it doesn't crease on me. I apply it at 8am and go through a whole work day, take a nap, go to zumba and it still stays in place until 11pm! the reason it only gets four lippies is because I have to mix both colours and the packaging is so freaken annoying. I think i usually have a 1/4 left in the bottle but I can never get the remaining out...such a waste!! I will be using this on a daily basis but if I'm only going out for a few hours and know that I need to take photos, then I will use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (perfect colour for me and doesn't have the whitecast in photos).

This creases just as much as any other drugstore concealer would on me. It's nothing special.

i've been on the hunt for a good undereye concealer..i had high hopes about this one after reading some great reviews. however, i wasnt impressed. i gave this 3 lippies because there was minimal creasing which is a plus and hard to find in a concealer. however, the color faded after a few hours and i had to reapply,i got little bumps where i applied it, and something in this irritated my eyes and caused tearing. i will be returning this to the store.

I'm using NC42 which is the same colour as the studio fix power that i use. The colour is an exact match and its great for concealing. If i use it under my eyes i do need to set it with a powder ( i use prep and prime setting powder) Some days I just use a bit of concealer and blush. and i'm good to go.
This product is a bit expensive but for the quality its worth it. In addition like most Mac products it doesnt irritate my skin or cause me to break out.
My main and only issue with this product is the bottle. It dispenses WAY too much and i feel like i'm wasting so much. I barely use it and its already half empty. Hopefully Mac will redesign the bottle.

Im almost done my second bottle, and this is how much i love this stuff. my HG concealer.
Im in n20 and perfect for me to:
-cover up my redness, hyper pigmentation, dark spots
-do a overall as a foundation when i have really bad skin (this can be applied so thin, thinner than a foundation
-sheer it out with my favourite oil controlling moisturizer, then using it as a foundation, or tinted moisturizer
im normal to oily tzone, with sometimes dry patches on my jaw line. this stuff does do any harm to my dry, normal or oily skin. However, ihave to be honest, if using it overal, i do need to blot after 6 hours. but for concealer stuff, HG HG HG!!! nothing can beat this.
im not gonna rant about the packaging, since i solved this by asking mac for those sample jars then- pumps one pump, lasts 3-5 uses, repeat cycle.
I CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS STUFF.

How I attack my face: moisturizer, SPF, no foundation, concealer, and setting powder. I like for my skin to actually show, so I only use concealer in the areas that need it - which means I need a concealer that is smudge-proof, waterproof, and full coverage. I'm currently on my third bottle. I am an NC 35 in this specific concealer, and use the MAC Studiofix concealer in NC 42 for my undereye area. I was looking for a cheaper replacement for my Era Classified Foundation in Y5, which is my favorite concealer to use. However, it costs an arm and a leg, and it is massive. I think the MUFE Full Cover concealer is EXCELLENT, but sadly, their colors don't work on me. This stuff, however, is my HG. Buildable, full coverage for little tiny areas like healing pimples or acne scars and dark, uneven areas behind the nose. I usually pat a tiny, opaque dot on whatever pesky spot, give it a few seconds to get tacky, then, with either a small concealer brush or pinky finer, I'll dab a tiny bit more (whatever is left on the brush) onto the area as I feather it outwards for blending. Feels like skin. No need to set this with a powder, as it is fast-setting, fast-drying (work quickly!), and semi-matte. I've been setting it with loose powder (I rotate between MUFE HD powder, Pond's Magic Pink Powder, or whatever Gold Bond/Baby Powder I have nearest) because I am super oily and anal, but I'm sure you could set this with a setting spray or leave it alone.

Studio Sculpt was my favourite concealer until it was recently discontinued so I have since been on the hunt for a new one. I bought Pro Longwear in the same shade which was NW15, which in fact are no where near the same colour, the Pro Longwear is much darker and more orange compared to the Studio Sculpt NW15 (so keep that in mind if you are pale). Once on the skin it gradually gets darker and sits in patches on the face which is not good and actually looks really cakey even when blended well. The only reason I didn't rate this lower is because it does provide good coverage but other than that I didn't like it at all. Sadly I will not be purchasing this product again.

I have purplish dark under eye circles and have tried so many concealers - higher and lower end- and this is definitely my HG. It's so pigmented, truly masks my dark circles, and doesn't settle into lines, etc. I let it sit a few seconds before blending it in, and it stays on for a long time. Definitely recommend- my personal fav. Only problem is the pump... It had gotten better since last year (I've been through about 5 bottles)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Hazel
I love this! It lasts all day for me. The only problem is its hard to pump out the right amount. Too much comes out most times but I've finally got the hang of pumping it out slowly. Overall its a good concealer.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Dark Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I have finally found it. Where have you been all of my life? This is the perfect concealer. It lasts all day and looks natural. Does not look cakey or settle into fine lines and creases. Perfect match in NW45. Mac rocks.

I'm usually an NC20-25 and Im on my second bottle! I gave the first one to my sister to try because I thought there was a tad bit left.. Turns out there was like 1/4 leftover and a little goes a long way with this concealer! I love how it gives off so much coverage even tho I don't really need that much! Better than the foundation and the only thing I hate about is was the pump.. I know it should be a pro but it came out all in one size! No matter how light or heavy you try.. Comes out more than you need.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
this concealer is awesome. It's really longwear and never filling in my lines. My foundation shade is NC25, and I use NW20 (for winter) and match perfectly. The only problem is packaging (it wastes so much product) I highly recommend!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
great concealer! I was really hesitant to try this concealer out at first as I've never had good luck with any other concealers but I'm so glad I bought this! great coverage, great staying power especially for the under eye area. I have the worst dark circles in the world and lines that can be seen probably from a few blocks away and this concealer conceals it perfectly! I can finally say, I'm in love! was previously using Mac select moisturecover concealer but this is so much better!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Excellent longevity, great colour range, is smooth and blendable and is a product I would highly recommend, especially under the eyes as it works so well to cover my dark circles. Unfortunately the pump dispenses way too much product and that knocks the rating down for me as it wastes so much product. Overall though, a really good concealer.

I do want to start off by saying I don't believe the woman from MAC matched my skin tone properly with this concealer. I feel it's a little too dark but the quality of this product is awesome. It actually does cover up imperfections and I'm sure if it was a little lighter it would be great for my dark circles. It lasts all day. Doesn't smudge and once it's dry you don't have to worry about it getting on your clothes or anything!

O M G can you say HOLY GRAIL i absolutely LOVE this concealer I've tried so many others from drug store to high end & I've gotta say this is my favorite. it covers up my dark circles perfectly & it doesn't crease which is a huge deal breaker for me. I'm NC25 but the girl at the counter matched me with NW20 i was surprised to see how great the color cancelled out my blue/purple circles with a flawless finish & i didn't have to cake it on! you know I'll be purchasing this bad boy again (: xoxo
