Concealers Mac Studio Sculpt vs. Studio Finish

Another post that I have been meaning to do for a while now! I had been trying to find a concealer that I like and think works well...I mean, who doesn't! I wanted a concealer for the under eye area to conceal the area and give better coverage. I don't have dark under eye circles, but for me if that area is not concealed I will look very tired! So alas my search for a good concealer. I had used some drug store concealers like Cover Girl (I don't even remember the name of the exact product) and they worked fine. But I decided to try a Mac concealer because I'd heard many good things about them. So here's my review on Mac's Studio Sculpt:



$16.50
Studio Sculpt Concealer:

I found the consistency of this product to be very thick. When I would put it on I would only need a tiny bit, which is good. However, it was very difficult to blend out because it was so thick. It would provide good coverage if you need a more heavy coverage under your eyes. It also does a good job of concealing blemishes as well. I also didn't get the correct shade which could have been part of the problem, but I just couldn't get passed the consistency and thickness of it.

Overall: A good product if you need heavier coverage for your under eye area.
Shade Matching: Ask the MAC Makeup Artist for help if you're unsure about your shade. For concealer I like to wear a shade lighter than my foundation so it blends in. That was my mistake with the Studio Sculpt!~Also, I found the NW shades to be very yellow toned which on my skin tone did not work....maybe it's the product or could be just did not match me at all!




$16.50
Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

I recently purchased this product after finishing the Studio Sculpt. I really love this concealer! It is not thick at all but provides really good coverage that I find is easy to blend. It is also very smooth and easy to apply. I found a shade that matches very well with my skin tone. On the plus side, it also has SPF 35 which I didn't know till I looked on the MAC website. So all in all, I think this concealer is great for those that would like medium coverage for the under eye area and don't want something so thick. I really am loving this concealer!

I would say that Studio Finish Concealer wins for this comparison.
If you have tried these two products, which one do you like the best?
