I have reviewed only two concealers on the blog till date as this is one product which I use regularly and finish up before I think of taking pictures for the blog. I will be reviewing another one today and the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit next. My daily makeup essentials include a concealer and a kohl mostly. From a good drugstore concealer like the Maybelline Fit Me concealer to a celeb-favorite L’Oreal True Match concealer, I have used many concealers but had been searching for the best under eye concealer for dark circles as regular blogging and a full-time job has taken a toll on my delicate undereye skin. Did the MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Stick wow me? Let us find out.
MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Stick is a stick concealer from MAC Cosmetics and is available in all major MAC outlets in the country and online on Nykaa. My MAC shade is NC 30 and I would highly advise for you to go to a proper MAC store to get an idea of your correct MAC shade.
MAC Studio Fix perfecting stick concealer is a spot concealer which comes in a convenient roll-up stick with a plastic cap. The packaging of the concealer is very compact and lightweight so it is easy to carry. The quantity of the concealer in the stick is good and I think this stick will last for around 3-4 months if used daily. I will update this article whenever I finish the tube to let you guys know the exact time.
The concealer itself is very creamy and feels soft on the skin. It does not pull or tug on the skin at all and blends beautifully. You can blend it with your fingers, beauty blender, or a good concealer brush. If you have a dry skin and are looking for the best under eye concealer for dark circles, the MAC Studio Fix perfecting stick is a great option. It hydrates the skin and settles to a soft matte finish. The formula is water-resistant and is suitable for all skin types but i feel that it will work best for dry skin.
Another important thing to note here is that it has a medium pigmentation and does not cover very dark circles well. You can build it up gradually but this concealer is designed for a more natural finish. If you are looking for a highly-pigmented full coverage concealer, this is not the best option. The staying power of the concealer is good with 7-8 hours of wear if not set with a powder and longer when set. It does not crease or dry out the skin. The shade range of this concealer ranges from NC 15 to NW 50 so every skin tone can find a suitable shade easily.
Overall, for my skin type, the MAC Studio Fix perfecting concealer is the best under eye concealer for dark circles if you have light to medium dark circles. For heavy dark circles, this won’t work as good as other full coverage concealers.
The MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Stick retails at 1850 INR on Nykaa and offline MAC stores.
So this is my review of the MAC Studio Fix Perfecting stick in shade NC 30. Which is your favourite concealer for dark circles?
