Mac – Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35

I have recently been trialling Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 from Mac, for use under my eyes. I don’t have dark circles as such, but I do get patches of uneven pigmentation just below my eyes and above my cheekbones which gets worse when I have been in the sun. I always wear a moisturiser with SPF during the day which does help to stop these patches from getting darker, but it doesn’t completely prevent them, so I like to use a concealer to help cover up the patches.
This concealer is available in 15 shades, I chose shade NC20 which is one of the paler ones. I do prefer thick pressed concealers to the thinner more runny ones as I find it easier to get a good coverage. I gently press it onto my under-eye area using my ring finger, and then blend gently. I find that this Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 gives a really good finish and lasts all day without creasing. I have tried it to cover blemishes on my chin too, but as my chin tends to be a bit oily I find that it can look a bit shiny after a few hours.
The image above shows a before and after shot. Look at the area to the below left of the eye – on the Before photo you can clearly see the dark blotches, whereas on the After shot this is completely covered by the concealer. What’s more, as the name suggests it contains SPF 35 sun protection, which helps prevent further sun pigmentation while I am wearing it. It is also water-resistant, so ideal for those Summer holidays by the pool!
I would definitely recommend Mac’s Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 for use under the eyes. Priced at £14.50 for 7g it is available from Mac Cosmetics.
