MAC Studio Finish Concealer NC42 Review,Swatches & Pics

ABOUT:lightweight, creamy, discreetly opaque concealer. Provides a smooth, long-wearing invisible coverage for all skin blemishes. Water-resistant, fragrance-free and non-acnegenic. This emollient-based, lightweight concealer is so concentrated that a tiny amount can provide opaque coverage of the skin’s imperfections and discolourations. It effectively covers dark circles, blemishes, moles, tattoos and birthmarks. Enriched with antioxidants (derivatives of Vitamin A and Vitamin E), it also contains Silica to help adsorb the skin’s oils. It has an SPF of 35 and is available in a wide range of colours. It can be applied with a medium to firm fiber brush (try the 242 Brush), a latex sponge, or the fingertips.

PRICE:rs.1100 for 7gm


PACKAGING:The concealer has the same packaging like mac mono eyeshadows.It is small and sturdy and travel friendly. The shade name and number is provided at the back of the packaging.The packaging is prone to getting messy as the concealer melts a bit during hot humid climate.


SHADE:I chose the shade nc42 which is tad bit darker for my skin.NC 35 was nt matching my tone ,nc30 was too light(I ma nc37).This one is slightly darker when swatched on hand but it adjusts to my skin tone.I use a brightening concealer over this.

MY VIEWS:The concealer has a creamy consistency.It is a dream to apply as it spreads and blends really well.In summers,it melt s a bit so I usually keep it need A/C.The concealer has spf35 which is an added benefit.Only a small amount is needed and little goes a long way.






The concealer is highly pigmented and it covers blemishes,acnes,pigmentation marks really well.The level of coverage depends upon he method of application though.It is waterproof and stays for a good amount of time.I have worn it for about 6-7 hour and my under eye area still looked fresh..It doesnt settle int the fine lines under the eye or crease on my combination/oily skin.However,if feel that it can accentuate dryness if not applied over well moisturised area.


RECOMMENDATION:I find this concealer very useful and recommend it to all those who want extra coverage.
