I'm on my 2nd one of these! I'm N22/25 and I got Light. There are times a stiffer concealer like these are needed....don't get me wrong, I love my liquidy Prolong Wear and NARS RCC, but depending on the weather and occasion, a more long lasting consistency like these work better. I love being able to mix and match according to the area of the face I'm concealing, and what color I need. I will without a doubt repurchase for a 3rd time when needed, and always have this palette in my stash.

I can't believe I didn't review this product yet! Because it's a staple in my collection. I'm NC10, with yellow/olive undertones. I own the "Light" version, and hit pan on NC10, NC15 & yellow- but use all shades, except the peach one (peach correctors don't work well for me, since I don't have any blue or purple discolorations- rather reddish brown, including eye area).
What I like:
- I can mix shades to create the perfect match,
- high coverage,
- great at covering blemishes- I usually use eyeliner brush (my fave is the one from Too Faced teddy bear brush set) and do pinpoint concealing a la Lisa Eldridge,
Now I don't really recommend applying it under your eyes... since I got Tarte Shape Tape I noticed the difference in overall finish of cream vs liquid concealer- ST looks less "powdery"/dry.
A few times I used NW20 to cream contour my nose, and it worked pretty well.
What I don't like:
- it wears off throughout the day, even when I set it with powder.

But overall, it's a great product whether you're a MUA or not!

I returned this for the Adept Cosmetics dupe that is $12.00. It's the same exact thing, but the Adept one is waterproof and doesn't melt off in this Alabama swamp heat. The only negative is that as an Indie brand, they only have 2 color compacts and MAC has a lot more.

I got this for free (in Light) and it's become my favourite concealer for dark scars and acne. I don't look too closely at the colours at all - for spot-concealing, I usually just pick one of the 4 concealers semi-randomly, and for larger areas, I just kind of stamp my dense foundation brush around into all the colours, including the 2 colour-correctors, to mix everything. I have warm medium-toned skin, and this palette works for me.

It blends very well, stays on through a whole day (I usually powder over with Mac Studio Fix Powder), and is pretty opaque. Plus you only need the tiniest amount - I've had this for 2 years and I've been using what I think is a decent amount for the methods above, and I've barely used a third of the products.

This is awesome!!!

Im around nc20 in complexion. Neutral pulling warm and I may be a bit olive.

I love studio finish concealer and these are the same formula although I think these mayyy be a little creamier and ever so slightly less opaque.

Sf concealer is my all time favorite concealer from Mac. It's actually the first concealer I ever purchased and have consistently went back to it over the years...

The problem being is that no one color is an ideal match. I use nc20 which is perfect on blemishes but as an undereye concealer, it looks a bit yellow and unnatural. Nw20 was too grey toned and nc15 was too ashy and light

Enter this awesome palette that I've lemmed for 2 years and finally bought.

These colors are perfect! Although I wish the pink corrector was peach instead. Pink looks unnatural for undereye correcting for my skintone.

But here it what I do:
I use nc20 for blemish concealing as always
Nw20 as a corrector right where my circles are the darkest-- it works pretty well as a peachy corrector for me..

Then nc15 all over as undereye concealer.

I take the yellow shade and tap it down the bridge of my nose and it is an awesome subtle highlight and also helps from keeping the foundation from sliding off my nose, as it tends to do.

And I also use the yellow shade as an eye base!!

I set my under eye with a lot of mufe hd packed onto a Mac 217 brush-- and it does NOT crease. Don't skip this step bc as I said-- formula does feel emolient so this will keep you free of creasing. (I also don't put foundation or primer under my eyes. I notice more layers make for more problems).

Only con-- and this is a big one -- the entire palette is .21 oz of product. In other words- these are some shallow pans!!! A regular pot of studio finish concealer is almost a half ounce (either .3 or .5-- can't remember but it's a lot!!)

I will run out of my favorite shades soon-- probably just in a few months. And for $40 that's annoying. But replacing as needed hopefully won't be too much of an investment. Bearing that in mind this palette is so so so good-- I am glad i finally tried it out. No regrets on this purchase

I use this palette in the Light shade. I absolutely love it. I use every color for different reason and different seasons. I use the shade NC 10+ NC 20 mix everyday to carve out my brows. I love a clean look to my brows and this does the trick perfectly. It also give me the perfect highlighted look. NC20+Nw20 I use on and spots and it conceals them perfectly. Light pink is perfect for concealing the blue tones under my eyes and Light yellow is great for highlighting. They are somewhat thick but still creamy enough to work into the skin and it does not budge. I will continue to repurchase this palette time and time again . t

It is so difficult for me to find a concealer that has the right balance of coverage, creaminess (but not so creamy that it creases every five minutes) and length of wear but MAC's conceal and correct palette does all of that. The correcting color does a great job on its own but then when you mix the other colors to conceal, it makes it even better. I have a very prominent blue vein under one of my eyes not to mention dark circles and this product does a fantastic job of concealing all of that.

I rarely get any creases under my right eye so I don't have to touch it up but I do have to lightly pat under my left eye once during the day as I apply more to that side since it's the one with the very visible blue vein.

I have extremely sensitive skin as well so I was nervous about using this since it is creamy in texture but even with blending it into my upper cheek, I've never had any issues with a rash or breakouts. This is the first product I've ever purchased with MAC and I can see why they're such a popular line.

I love this. It is thick so you can't use it everywhere. I have tried a lot of correcting palettes. I got the light one and it has my shade NC20 and a NW20 and version and a yellow and a pink and 2 others. It has everything I could ever need in terms a shades. It's good for spots and I use it where I have dark shadows near by my innter eye and it dampes that darkness. You can use it under the eye but tend to use something lighter over it. I use it on little red bumps and breakouts. Great stuff. I have tried LM version but that only has 2 shades. I use this all the time.

This has become my HG daily concealer. I'm fair skinned so I use the Light palette. The salmon/peach color is perfect for under eye circles; and the yellow is a great highlighting concealer shade. It's creamy and very blendable. I use four of the six colors regularly so unfortunately every time I hit pan on those I still have 2 shades fairly unused. Even with that fact I have repurchased this palette twice now in the past year. For some reason they don't seem to carry it at any MAC counters, though, so I always have to order it off the site which is annoying but not a dealbreaker for me.

Love love love this bad boy! Seriously it is perfect for a quick touch up or a full blown contour. I used the the medium-deep palatte and im an nc42 and it blends beautifully with my skin tone. I LOVE how versatile it is and how easily you can keep it on the good. Would definatly recommend this palatte!
