We all know concealer is an essential part of a makeup routine. I have my favorite concealers, of course. I am adding this new MAC Matchmaster Concealer to my list of favorites because it has everything in it that I like. It's natural looking, buildable long lasting coverage that doesn't settle into fine lines with good for you ingredients.
"Formulated to enhance the subtleties of your skin tone, new Matchmaster Concealer features the same Shade Intelligence Technology as Matchmaster Foundation SPF 15, utilizing breakthrough pigment technology to create a fully personalized, subtle satin finish. Vitamin E conditions as the concealer reduces the appearance of under eye circles, dark spots, discolourations, fine lines and wrinkles. Packaged in a convenient, portable stick, it launches in 12 diverse shades with colour-true coverage for up to eight hours."
As I mentioned, I really like that MAC Matchmaster Concealer leaves my undereye area looking bright and refreshed and just like I have no undereye circles or signs of fatigue. It is so important to me that a concealer does not settle into my fine lines or cross hatching and this one does not. It lasts all day under or over my foundation and blends out with ease.
The concealer comes in a handy stick form and I apply it to the back of my hand and then apply. I have tested it with my fingertips, various concealer brushes and my Beautyblender sponge. I have found that my favorite way to apply is with my Beautyblender Micro.mini or the MAC 195 Concealer Brush. Both give the same beautiful result.
There are 12 shades available (1.0 - 9.0) and I highly recommend selecting one in person. I received the shades 1, 5 and 9 to test and I am mixing shades 1 and 5 right now to get a shade closest to me. I am guessing I would be a 2.0 or 3.0 but that is just a guess. I need to be matched at a MAC counter and I advise everyone get matched for perfect coverage.
