Hello pretty ladies! SmileConcealer is a staple product of many makeup pouches. But I used to neglect it and started using it relatively recently. You see, I found a steady job and now I’m always tired and lack sleep. From that moment, a concealer has become a must-have for me.

By the way, even and beautiful coverage and also an adequate staying power are also very essential for me.

I was able to gain all that and maybe even more from the new MAC Studio Fix 24-Hour Smooth Wear Concealer.

The design is minimal, which is a popping feature of the MAC brand. I appreciate such a design pattern. Nothing extra here. The plastic is sturdy and it doesn’t scratch over time. The lettering is also in place.

Size - 7 ml.

Made in Canada.

Shelf life - 6 months of opening.

The texture is creamy, not the most lightweight in the world but still, it isn’t a thick plaster anyway. The application is easy-breezy with fingertips or with a brush. As for the sponge, I found the application more difficult then. The coverage is medium/thick. The product is build-able, however, I want to draw your attention that the second layer must be thinner, otherwise, you risk having a cakey finish. The concealer is self-setting and I like how quickly it dries out on my skin. That’s why you have to be rather quick with its blending out. The finish is semi-matte and always looks natural and lively.

It’s so important that the product doesn’t dry out my gentle under eye skin!

I’ve been using it for 2 weeks already every day and the results seem awesome.

The staying power is one more pro of the MAC Studio Fix 24-Hour Smooth Wear Concealer. It stays on till the moment I wash it off.

I work 8 hours a day standing under those lousy beauty shop lights. It always makes my skin shine with oil within 2 hours. And I always have to touch-up my foundation, which doesn’t affect the concealer at all. There wasn’t a day when it let me down.

The color selection is enormous from MAC. One will definitely find a perfect match there. A long time ago I have found out that the shade NW20 is ideal for me during summer and winter.

So now, let’s have a look at the concealer in action. I can’t say that my under eye dark circles are crucial but my main problem is reddening due to my sensitive eyes and also I have some dark pigment in the inner corners of my eyes.

I apply the concealer using its doe-foot applicator and then blend it out with a synthetic buffing brush. Within a few minutes after the application, the product may crease a little, however, it doesn’t crease later in the day. I don’t set it with a powder. The coverage doesn’t seem to be the best, but I like the result I get for everyday wear. The most important thing is that I look wide awake and my skin isn’t dried out. And of course, the staying power is also a plus.

MAC Studio Fix 24-Hour Smooth Wear Concealer is a good working horse for everyday wear. It’s easy to use and it covers up everything that has to be covered.

I don’t even need anything else from my concealer.

Price - $22.00

Thanks for your attention! Stay gorgeous and have a pleasant shopping day! Wink
