MAC Studio Finish Concealer Duo review and swatch


This concealer duo has been a lifesaver for the past few months. With tanned skin, I was matched with NW25 and NC30. I am generally a shade or two lighter when I’m not tanned. I use NW25 the most to cover the dark eye circles whereas NC30 is used to hide those pesky spots. It’s perfect with all of the late nights I always have.

A little is all you need. The consistency is thick and can be heavy to use under the eyes. To ensure a smoother and better application, moisturising the eye area really well is the key. This helps to prevent dragging the delicate area. The finish is not 100% matte therefore it doesn’t leave the area feeling dry, specifically the eyes. Without setting it with powder, it does last a good full working day but it does transfer, easily and crease. It’s best to set this to prolong it’s longevity and to stop it budging and creasing overall.

The coverage is brilliant, leaves an opaque coverage. Any imperfections and my dark circles are hidden. Using fingers to apply is better than using a brush. It helps warm up the product and blends into the skin seamlessly. I’ve used this everyday since March and there is a lot of product still left over. NW25 will be the first to go.

I do love it but I actually wouldn’t purchase it again. I love the idea of a duo set so you know that both shades compliment each other and will suit you just for £20. Two products for one price. However, I prefer the Pro Longwear concealer over this.

What’s your favourite concealer?

    I love the Mac Studio Finish and always carry a pot around with me in my bag 🙂

    I've recently started using urban decay and love it! After years only using collection 2000 and Rimmel concealers, I think it's worth the investment. That will be next on my list!

    I have never found a concealer that actually matched my skin colour but these might actually do the trick. Will have to investigate a bit more.

    Sounds like a great concealer! My favourite concealer is the urban decay naked concealer 🙂

    The duo is a great idea as it can help you match the concealer to your skin colour better. I need to try this.

    It's nice that it provides such nice coverage. I don't have a go-to concealer right now.

    My mummy doesn't wear concealer and tends to find that light reflecting foundation does the job. Thanks for the honest post!

    This sounds so good! It's annoying when a tan changes the shade you need so this is perfect! Great price considering it lasts so long!

    Sounds a lot like the Bobbi Brown corrector and the Laura Mercier Camouflage Concealer. They're not my favorite type. I also like the Pro longwear better x

    This sounds great but I've recently decided to go cruelty free with my makeup and I still struggle whenever I walk past a MAC shop!

    I love the MAC concealers, they're so bendable and easy to work into the skin
