'A lightweight, creamy, discreetly opaque concealer. Provides a smooth, long-wearing invisible coverage for all skin blemishes. Water-resistant, fragrance-free and non-blemishgenic. This emollient-based, lightweight concealer is so concentrated that a tiny amount can provide opaque coverage of the skin's imperfections and discolourations. It effectively covers dark circles, blemishes, moles, tattoos and birthmarks. Enriched with antioxidants (derivatives of Vitamin A and Vitamin E), it also contains Silica to help adsorb the skin's oils.'
Studio Finish is packaged in one of MAC's 7g black pots, the same packaging used for their eyeshadows. I have the shade 'NW20' which is too light for me considering I typically wear NC30-NC42 in Studio Fix Fluid but I've had this concealer for a long time now and I always apply concealer before foundation so it works fine. It also has SPF 35.
Studio Finish has a very thick texture. I do find it can feel quite drying on my skin and be difficult to blend, when applied directly onto the skin. I find I always need to use this on top of a primer, such as Smashbox Photo Finish, for it to apply smoothly and blend well. It does give really good, full coverage and easily conceals any redness or blemishes to even out my skin tone. This would be perfect if you have a lot of imperfections you want to camouflage.
Although I do like to use this on my face, I find it looks terrible on the under-eye area. The thick texture makes the concealer difficult to blend and it feels very drying. I find it accentuates dryness, sinks into fine lines and has an overall 'cakey' appearance.
Studio Finish is an ok concealer. The coverage is fantastic and it hides imperfections perfectly but the texture makes it difficult to blend, it's very drying, it settles into fine lines and makes my under-eye area look cakey. Apart from the need to conceal the odd spot, my foundation is usually enough to even out my skin tone, so for me this isn't really a worthwhile purchase. I definitely think there's cheaper and better concealers on the market and once I've used this up I won't be repurchasing.
