I am a concealaholic! I have these stubborn dark shadows rather hollows underneath my eyes that make me addicted to concealers. If there is one makeup product in this world that I can’t live without – It’s probably a concealer. I always try different concealers (only high end ones that have more than 90 % positive reviews). I am a fan of MAC pro longwear concealer – reviewed here. However, I wanted a more everyday wear medium – full coverage concealer that is travel friendly too. That’s when I decided to go for MAC Studio Finish Concealer.

I am generally an NW35 in MAC Pro longwear concealer. I use MAC pro longwear NC42 to cover acne on my face area. Studio Finish NC45 is darker for my undereye area. But because of the strong yellow tones it has, it acts as a good corrector for my under eye area. It counteracts the bluish shadows well.
I love to use this as a base for my eye shadow as well. This has a very light texture, super easy to apply and blend and I use my clean ring finger to apply this evenly on the under eye area. This concealer gives medium to heavy coverage and gives best results when blended with our fingers. There is another advantage while applying this concealer using fingers, our body temperature melts the concealer and it becomes easier to blend. I go for the full coverage.
The staying power is very impressive, It stays for about 8-9 hours without making my skin oily. It won’t settle on to the fine lines and doesn’t appear cakey at all. I use the Ben Nye – Translucent powder to set this. This helps hide all of the nastiest under eye dark circles I have. I don’t recommend this to you if you have oily skin as it might smudge and settle badly onto your fine lines. If you have a dry under area, use a primer or a light, non greasy moisturiser can be applied prior to concealer application.
After concealer application and full eye makeup
I love this concealer a lot and will surely repurchase this! If you have deep set dark under eye circles like I have, this is a must try from MAC.
