MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF35 in NC20

Review for MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF35 in NC20

Hey guys! When you talk about best concealers out in the market, MAC’s studio finish concealer is always in everyone’s top 10. I knew I had to get it after hearing so many raves about this product!  





This concealer, hands down, best coverage concealer I have ever used. It is able to conceal my scar from my mole surgery which is pretty impressive. If you have severe acne scarring, this is the concealer for you. I would consider it high coverage

You only need to use a dab of this. A little goes a long way. It is very hard to blend so just dabbing the zit with the concealer and lightly blending it out with my finger I find works best. 

It lasted for a good 3-4 of full coverage before transferring onto tissues. I always set it with powder to make it last longer. 

The MAC Studio Finish Concealer does contain SPF 35 which is great since it protects the scars and active acne from the sun which may cause pigmentation. 

I don’t particularly find the price to be too bad, S$28 might be a bit expensive but we all know that MAC cosmetics are expensive in general. Their foundations are in the S$47-$58 range so for a reputable concealer, I didn’t find it to be too bad. These days, drug store concealers are more expensive as well. I know Revlon Photoready concealer are in the S$20 range which is absolutely crazy.





It is actually too light for me. I’m a good NC25 closer to NC20 but this concealer is way too light for my skin tone. It does not come in NC25 as far as I know so I had to get the NC20. I’m lighter on my cheek area and my forehead area is slightly darker. I wish it came in a NC25. 

The top layer dries up in the plastic container so every time I use it, I have to use my hairdryer, set it to warm and melt the concealer before applying to any spots. After heating, the concealer melts into a nice, creamy texture that blends well. 

I do not recommend using it for under eye circles but I do know many bloggers/gurus uses it for their dark circles. I find that it emphasizes the fine lines under the eyes since it is so dry and I have to use a lot of pressure to blend out the concealer which is bad for the delicate eye area. 

And again since the consistency is so thick, it is very hard to blend

I do not like the pot container because it is unhygienic and troublesome (you do need to use either you fingers or brush). I prefer using a brush to get a nice small amount but the heat from the fingers can be used to warm up the product.    

It does make your face look cakey if you use too much of it. Sometimes we get inflamed fury zits the size of a ping pong ball and we’d like to conceal that using the best coverage concealer we have. I like to use the MAC Studio Finish Concealer for that purpose, it does a great job. But the area looks cakey because it gets so dry, so try adding layer by layer.

Yadda Yadda:
All in all, the coverage from MAC Studio Finish Concealer is amaze-balls, if you require extra coverage for any spots, blemishes or scars, I highly recommend this concealer.

But if you do not need such a high coverage concealer, or if you prefer a more natural, easily blended concealer, you might want to save the S$28 for a creamier alternative.

Will I repurchase? No, I find it too dry and cakey for my skin.
