Mac makeup isn’t something I have a lot of. The main reason being their products are very jacked up price wise in Australia and I am not paying nearly 50 bucks for a lipstick. That being said I’ve always found their concealers to be mostly at a fair price point for a high-end concealer. With drugstore makeup also being overpriced in Australia, the concealers from Mac aren’t that expensive when you think about it. You guys already know how much I love the pro long wear concealer (click here for the review) but I found the other two concealers I have from them haven’t got nearly as much attention.
So today I am here to review another concealer from Mac! Let’s jump in!
Coverage: This is definitely a full coverage concealer! It covers up everything – from spots to redness.
Longevity: It lasts really well on the skin. Of course, setting the concealer will always make it last better and I always set my foundation and concealer.
Formula: Its formula is where some people may not be over the moon about. It’s definitely on the thicker side of concealers. It’s not a mousse consistency but compared to the pro long-wear concealer by mac, it is much thicker in consistency. It definitely has a bit of a heavier feel to it. It’s definitely not that drying, more hydrating than the pro long wear concealer.
Packaging: It is in a squeezy tube packaging with a fine nozzle applicator.
Under the eyes or for spots?: I’ve tried making it work under the eyes because I love the coverage level. Some days I can make it look pretty good under the eyes, other days not so much. The less you use the better, you do not want to apply a lot of this under the eyes and I love blending it out with a beauty blender. It works wonderfully as a spot concealer! I love using it to cover up spots. I actually like to wear it under the foundation for when I am going with a light coverage base. I pop some of this on in my trouble areas then I throw on my light coverage base.
Pros: It has great coverage, not very drying and you get a lot of product! It sits well on the skin and blends nicely. Works well as a spot concealer. Its packaging allows you to control the amount of product you want with its nozzle applicator.
Cons: It has a thicker formula, slightly heavy. So it may not be everyone’s cup of tea and it’s a tricky one to wear under the eyes.
Price: $34 AUD
Shade range: It comes in 13 shades.
Availability: Mac counter, or the Mac cosmetics website
Overall thoughts: It’s a very lovely concealer. I don’t have many Mac products because they are extremely overpriced in Australia. But I find the concealers to be a reasonable price and considering how much product you get they last absolutely ages! This concealer covers really well and is less drying then the pro long wear concealer.
Would I repurchase it?: I would. There aren’t many concealers I consider good enough as a spot concealer. This one definitely does a bang-up job at covering spots!
And that wraps up this review! Have you guys tried this concealer or any of the mac concealers? What was your experience? Drop a comment I’d love to hear from you guys. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you in the next post!
