Concealer has got to be the best thing at covering up flaws and imperfections on your skin, and MAC’s Studio Finish Concealer is hands down my new holy grail concealer! Now I know there are a lot of mixed opinions about this product so I think it’s a bit like marmite, you either love it or hate it. I chose the shade NW15 as it was the same as my MAC Studio Fix Foundation, it costs £15 which isn’t too bad considering how long concealer lasts.
I love using this under my eyes and on any blemishes that I may have, it has full coverage, applies smoothly and easily blends. It’s really important to me that concealer doesn’t dry cakey (especially under the eyes), this does not have that effect on me and sinks into my skin well. The packaging reminds me of a lipgloss pot, I always just use my fingers to apply concealer so this is perfect for me. Also as it’s so small you can take it with you if you go out to touch up during the day. Now while I’m on the subject, I don’t actually feel the need to touch up at all as it has very good staying power.

If you do decide to try this out I would definitely recommend going into a MAC store to try out the different shades as they have a large selection. I am obsessed with this concealer and sometimes just wear this alone without foundation when I am having good skin days.

What’s your holy grail concealer?

    This is my favorite too! It definitely gets the job done and lasts all day. Like you said, I love that it blends well enough to wear without foundation. Great review!
