The Best Concealer for My Under Eye Circles
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, under eye circles
I must say that I have been an avid MAC Cosmetic user for the past 15 yrs. I am extremely happy with their product, but most importantly this concealer. I have not come across another concealer that can hide my under-eye circles the way this one does. I have tried many products to hide these circles under my eyes, which by the way to me are UGLY!!! These circles ruin the look of my pretty cocoa-brown skin. So I was recommended to try this product over 10 yrs ago and have been using it every since. I recommend this product for those who have the same issue. I see that ppl are saying it looks caky/thick on their skin. In my honest opinion you may be putting too much on!! It does not take much of this product to cover your circles, so I can see how you get that caky/thick look!!
I also find that it helps after putting on your makeup, to get a cold damp cloth and "set" your face, taking away the appearance of too much makeup/caky look. Just run the cloth in cold water, ring it out, and set on your face and pat lightly. This really helps, pay special attention to your eye area, not to pat too hard, but just enough to remove what you may believe is excess.
I've been doing it for the past 15yrs now and my skin looks flawless after I've applied my makeup and done that trick.
I WOULD NOT CHANGE THIS PRODUCT OR GO TO ANOTHER PRODUCT PERMANENTLY TO SAVE MY LIFE!! THANKS MAC :-)

FIRST TIMERS: GET MATCHED BEFORE BUYING ONLINE!
Tags +Long wearing, Natural looking, first timers
This is obviously one of the most popular concealers on the market today, so it is no doubt a good choice for first-time users. However, if you are a first-time concealer purchaser (like me) then I HIGHLY recommend you first go into your local MAC store and get color matched by the makeup artists. When it comes to concealer, you DO NOT want to do the guessing game! I guessed online and received a concealer 2 shades darker than my skin tone, and apparently not correct undertone (Warm/Cool). Avoid the hassle of returning/exchanging and get it after you are SURE with your own shade! :)

amazing coverage!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, covering blemishes and under eye.
I have been using pro long wear concealer for over a year and when I shattered my latest bottle I decided to see what else MAC offered for full coverage. I absolutely loved the pro long wear for coverage but because I have really oily skin no matter how well I set it, a few hours in it was separating or creasing in my smile folds (is that a thing?) Anyway, I need full coverage for some pesky acne scars I can't rid myself of, I thought I would try out the Studio Finish Concealer. I bought it a shade darker than I usually use (nw20 instead of nw15) and its AMAZING. the coverage is the best I've found anywhere, it doesn't crease or flake or chunk or any of that other weird stuff makeup likes to do when you have less-than-ideal skin. I will definitely be adding this to my "necessities" portion of my make-up collection! IT EVEN COVERS MY TATTOOS

Awesome concealer...some flaws
Tags +Natural looking, covering up dark circles & discoloration
There is no perfect concealer...but wow is this one close!
THE GOOD: Lightweight, gives a very natural soft finish. Really does cover up just about anything! You can also layer over "problem" areas pretty effectively. KILLS dark circles. The color matches my skin more closely than any other Mac product I've tried.
THE BAD: This stuff does NOT stay put. It likes to move all over your face, particularly if you are sweating or if you get oily like I do. I suppose it is this same property that makes glide so effortlessly over your skin, so that is the sacrifice you make. If you worked in an air conditioned office all day and don't exert yourself while wearing it, I am sure you'd be fine. I also have my doubts as far as the "non-acnegenic" claim goes...I am acne prone but since using this product I've had more breakouts than usual.

Great for blemishes
Do NOT use this concealer for the under eye area. It makes fine lines much more noticeable because this concealer is so creamy and thick. Great for covering blemishes but not for under the eyes!

Full coverage most of the day
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, acne, dark spots, redness, brightening
I love this concealer! It's really creamy and opaque, great for covering blemishes or redness. I also use it to brighten my under eye area. I used to use a concealer brush with it, but I found it would cake up and look splotchy. Using my ring finger, it glides on flawlessly because your body heat warms the product up. This makes it super easy to blend onto dark spots and especially onto under eyes (I noticed WAY less creasing on my under eyes when I switched to my finger). A great purchase for the money! I want a foundation size of this little gem :)

NC 15
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing
I love this concealer, I use it to cover red spots on my face, and redness on my nose. It's full coverage, creamy, and easy to blend. It's a lot of product for the price, compared with other brands that have similar concealer. The only bad thing I have to say about this is, there's not light enough colors for very fair skin. I'm an NC 15 on my face, and that's the color I use, but I would also like to use this for my under eyes, and I want a shade lighter than that. I hope that Mac changes that soon, in the meantime I have to go with another brand, pay more money for a lighter shade..and less product.

The BEST under eye concealer!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, dark circles
This is the longest lasting and best covering concealer I've used in my past ten years of trying different concealers for my dark circles. The only reason I did four stars is because it does crease without any type of primer. It also seems to last forever.

Best Acne Hiding Treatment!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, hiding imperfections
I`m 20 and i have light skin tone. In the light skin all the little blemishes and acne looks very bad, even very little problems spoil all the view and concentrate all attentions. Its my first MAC buy and Im really happy for it!
Its perfect for hiding all kind of blemishes, and I was afraid for the color choice, I bought NW 20, and it suits perfect to my skin. After applying it, I need nothing more on my face. Because it looks very natural, not cakey, and it really HIDE all imperfections.
The only reason I gave 4 points, because its not perfect for under eye area, because it looks dry, but still hides under eye circles, but its better to choice more liquid concealer for under eye area.
Im very happy for my purchase. Thank u MAC!

In Love!!
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, beautiful glow
I've tried numerous concealers from high end brands at Sephora and department stores, nearly twice as much but I wanted to give MAC a chance, and omg none of them were as amazing as this! I don't have bad skin, just a few little spots here and there sometimes. So I only wear concealer every so often. But this baby gave me such an amazing natural looking glow! I looked completely flawless! And everyone in the store were just so nice and helpful. This is definitely my new go to concealer, no question. I've already used it a few times and you can't tell in the container AT ALL. So worth the price.

Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
I was looking for a concealor to help cover the psoriasis scars on my face. I have dark skin so i have one underneath my eye that made it look like I have a black eye. My face looks flawless. You can't even tell I have psoriasis scars on my face. I even just use it on the weekend when i'm just going to the store and the spots I need it on and it blends well with my skin color. I highly recommend this concealor.

Awesomity
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking
I absolutely love this concealer for covering blemishes, redness, and if you don't need a corrector, for highlighting and sculpting. The only peeve I have is the color jump between NC35 to NC42. Mac should REALLY come out with an NC37 and NC40. I know they're available in the palettes but for girls in between shades, like me, buying these two palettes for one color seems very wasteful.

Studio Finish Concealer
Tags +Full Coverage, dark circles
SO i bought this product last month thinking that it would be my holy grail product. I suffer from acne, and have very dark circles so i really wanted a good concealer. The more i used it, i realized it works fabulously on dark circles. THey completely vanish when i use this but, i you also have acne and want a good concealer, this is not the product for you. When i tried to cover up zits about an hour later they just popped right back up. So, great for dark circles, but terrible for acne.

A must have concealer.
Tags +Full Coverage, use for concealing dark under eye circles, dark spots and blemishes.
I have had this concealer in my make up stash for about 2 years now, and I still have not hit the bottom of the container. When it comes to APPLYING this product, I prefer to apply it with my ring finger (rather than using a sponge, or concealer brush - I have used these items in the past with this product, but I don't use them too often, because its really not necessary. Often times your clean sanitized fingers can be your best makeup tools.) This concealer comes in a small container However, a little really does go a long way. It does not take a large amount of the product, to cover areas of the skin that are blemished or dark. This concealer spreads fast, and covers very well, and you can quickly end up looking like a "cakey mess" if you use too much of this concealer at a time.
It is one of my go to concealers because it is water proof, and can hold up very well in humid conditions.

Doesn't live up to the hype..
Although this product has spf, which is good for the undereye area, and blends well, it gets very cakey. No matter how little or where you apply, the end result is, it'll look dry. Even after I warm it up a bit, just minutes after I apply, it looks cakey. It can cover undereye circles well, but not the severe ones (I'd apply eye cream first because it's so drying). Blemishes such as scarring may be covered, but I wouldn't put this on zits. It'll look very obvious that you're trying to hide it. Also, the staying power is weak. 2hrs and it's gone. I had to reapply this at least twice during school. Not worth the price.

MUST HAVE/TRY
Tags +Creamy
I LOVE this concealer. I use it to cover any blemishes, highlights the jaw bones, forehead, etc. Also use as a base under my eye shadow.Thinking of trying the long lasting liquid one to see if it's just as good. This concealer is GREAT but nothing is PERFECT and yes after 5/6 hrs it does fade/wear off. Still the only brand concealer I would ever buy. Worth it. Oh BTW I use concealer every day in multiple places on my face and this tube lasted me about 4 months. Of DAILY use. Great product, must at least try!

Love it
Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, covering acne and acne scars & concealing redness
I had bought this because I had recently started breaking out on my chin really bad. I needed a full coverage concealer. Its very creamy to put on regardless if your using fingers or a concealer brush to apply. It is also non acnegenic so its perfect for acne prone skin (it has NOT made my acne worse at all!) You can cover up dark spots, acne, and even use it under your eyes! It has a bit of layering potential, so you can put it on a little lighter, or layer it for a more full coverage. Its waterproof and stays put all day. I put it on under my foundation because it is opaque, putting the foundation on over it makes it blended with your makeup! Im NC15 and I have the nc15 concealer, and because it is opaque it is lighter than my skin but not too light.

Tags +Full Coverage, Long wearing, Natural looking, covering up acne scars and dark circles
This was the first product I had ever purchased from MAC, and I loved it! It covers up acne scars and dark circles really well, and it you can build the coverage u want. I recommend using a powder to set the concealer. It is very creamy, so it spreads really well. I have had this product for over 5 months now and I'm still not even close to finishing it. I honestly feel this is money well spent!
