MAC Studio Conceal and Correct Duo - Rich Yellow/Burnt Coral - Review & Swatches

8:00 AM

And this time I'm bringing you Western make up again. I'm leaving my NARSissist self at the door and present you a brand new product from MAC Cosmetics : The Studio Conceal and Correct Duo in Rich Yellow/Burnt Coral.




What the brand says

A professional duo of two complementary corrector shades for customized skincare correction. Create your ideal skin tone in pairs of blendable shades in four new colour combinations: Light, Medium, Deep Medium and Dark. Fortified with shea butter and vitamins E and C, the correcting formula evens skin tone and visibly reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles for up to eight hours.


The packaging

As you can see, the correctors come in a double ended product and each of them are 4 ml.

8ml of total products for 25$ (MAC US) / 25€ (MAC FR)



The applicators are standard doe-foot ones which make it easier to apply directly onto the skin.





Swatches



My thoughts

The ingredients such as shea butter make the product extremely creamy. This particularity makes it easier to blend without effort. Now, the reason why I got this product is because of the dark areas on my face. If you have brown/tan/indian or even olive skin chances are you have those darker areas in your face too. Thanks to my C20 serums, the darker areas around my mouth have greatly diminished so I don't have to to use this product on a daily basis on these areas. But, although I don't have a severe case of dark circles, they are still there and needs to be corrected ! If you are one of those people who likes to highlight their under-eye areas and you are using a lighter concealer shade (not pointing fingers, I do it myself !), you have to correct those dark circles before concealing, otherwise you'll get a gray finish after "concealing", and that doesn't look good at all ! 
With this product, orange cancels out those dark areas and works great on those blue,brown almost black dark circle and the yellow is great to cancel redness or can also be used as a brightener/highlighter on tan to deeper skin tones.

The correctors are crazily pigmented but the very fact that you can easily blend them makes it easier. In this case, a little goes a long way. However, I found that no matter what I did, used underneath my eyes, the product settled unto my fines lines. I was and still am, extremely annoyed so what I do is that I apply the burnt coral underneath the area where I have fines lines and then bring it up a bit when I blend. If you want to use the Rich Yellow as a highlighter, keep in mind that this product isn't meant to be used as such because it's actually a tad too thick to be used this way. I'd suggest using the prep and prime highlighters from MAC in Light Boost (which is really light but has a yellow tone and is lightweight as consistency) for that matters. 

Pros

  • Comes in different shades suitable for all skin colors
  • Highly pigmented
  • Easily blendable thanks to the creamy finish of the product
  • Doe-foot applicator

Cons

  • Creases
  • Expensive (but used sparingly, it would last a long time)

As an overall, I'm pretty disappointed with this product. The very fact that it creases put me off from using it ! As such, I wouldn't recommend it and I'm thinking that I should've gotten Armani's Master Corrector in peach instead, it's pricier but could be better in the long haul !
