Am about to purchase a concealer as i now have to start work earlier, and my eyebags are showing it! So need to cover these up!
I dont know why but i was swaying toward the studio finish one, but now im not sure if i might prefer the pro-longwear or select cover up.
Anybody tried any of these and prefer one over the other?May 3, 2012 at 10:42 am #169261
I have the studio finish, and it works pretty well. For under eyes tho, you have to set it with powder immediately or it will crease all dayMay 3, 2012 at 10:46 am #169268
If MAC hadn’t discontinued it late last year/earlier this year, I’d recommend Studio Sculpt Concealer for under the eyes. It’s the only MAC concealer I’ve used. (That said, if you’re in the US, you can still get select shades on their website, and you can also still get it on Nordstrom’s website.)May 10, 2012 at 3:18 pm #170365
Studio Finish and Pro Longwear both work well under the eyes. Studio Finish isn’t quite as heavy though. As long as you don’t apply them too heavily, they won’t crease and will last all day. Setting any under eye concealer with a powder will make it last even longer and keep it from settling in lines.May 11, 2012 at 12:28 pm #170504
I have “Select Cover Up” and i think its pretty good. My skin is kinda normal-dry, often i put just a bit of concealer without even setting it fades a bit after a lot of hour but other than that never set into fine line or anything. I’d say if you get a chance get a sample and then decide what works best for you.May 11, 2012 at 2:11 pm #170516
Mac Studio Finish is not good for my skin It dries it…May 13, 2012 at 7:47 pm #170708
I used the studio finish for years and I loved it, then I switched to Pro longwear and the coverage is flawless, it is something between the studio finish and select moisturecover concealer. Excellent coverage with good moisture. Good luck and you can always get a sample of the pro long wear since it comes in a pump.May 21, 2012 at 9:40 am #171914
I absolutely love MAC Pro Longwear. I suggest you apply your foundation first (unless it’s a powder foundation), then release a pump of the concealer to the back of your hand, apply light dabs of it with a concealer brush only to your darker areas, then use your finger tip to pat it in until it’s blended. Once you’re satisfied with your coverage, apply a light dusting of a transluscent powder with a puff to set it. Won’t budge all day.May 21, 2012 at 9:25 pm #171973
For MAC I would definitely agree pro longwear is ah-mazing! I have another favorite concealer for my undereyes but it’s not MAC and it’s pretty expensive lol. But I absolutely love it and it honestly was one of the first concealers that I got that really covered up my puffiness and my dark undereye circles and I have some pretty bad ones so I’d definitely try itMay 29, 2012 at 12:22 pm #173671
i swear by the mac select cover upMay 29, 2012 at 11:04 pm #173764
It appears I am the only one that does not like Pro Longwear for under the eyes=P Idk for me it really settled into fine lines around my eyes and made me look like I was in my late 30′s (I’m 20). This could also be because of how my skin is so you should definitely go to MAC and have them look at you and try out what they have.
