I have panda eyes and there is no concealer that perfectly suits my under eye area, its either too light that my dark circles peep through or too heavy that it looks cakey. Then i got my hands on to this concealer, sure i must say, had to do lot of research since its not that affordable. Lets get real, for me to spend 2100 on a concealer, it is a major investment, so i had to be sure, i am spending money on a product that is really worth. So after reading all the pros and cons about this concealer, also watching all the reviews on youtube, i went ahead to test this in store, in person. There i tried both with color corrector as well as without it. I must say , it looked reallly nice on my face, just like a no makeup makeup look. Honestly i went there bear face and a tiny dap of this concealer under my eyes made me look like i have perfect skin. So this concealer is not too thick not too runny, it has the perfect consistency for going under the eye area where it has really delicate. I used both buffing technique as well as pat technique with my finger tips to blend the product. I understand there is only one disadvantage of this product which is the packaging wherin more than the required amount of product comes out. Honestly this can be easily converted into an advantage for me , where in i use the extra product on my complete face as a light foundation. It really does look flawless and amazing. Matte look, covering imperfections and really light on skin. Since it comes in a glass bottle, need a little extra care while travelling. So ...It is a really good investment and must recommend to all the brides especially as well as those who really want a concealer that is worth the money and would like to do their own makeup for all occasions and look gorgeous.

A lightweight, fluid concealer that provides full coverage with a comfortable matte finish. Gives a smoother, flawless-looking finish on skin. Helps to conceal flaws, dark spots, skin discolouration and undereye circles.
KEY CLAIMS AND BENEFITS
Long-wearing, 15 hours
For all skin types
Apply to skin directly using finger or with concealer brush.
Blend with finger, sponge or brush.
It true to its claims. I just love this product . It needs to be set with powder. I highly recommend it for dry skin.. it blends flawlessly and does not creases. Amaging product but quantity is less
I love love love the creamy consistency of the concealer. It is neither thick nor thin and just glides on easily. Also, it gives me ample time to work with the concealer before it finally sets.
The concealer is quite opaque but not thick.
Once blended out nicely, it stays on all day long without creasing or settling into the fine lines. If you have oily skin, you might want to set it with powder, for my dry skin it works just fine without any powder as well.
A little goes a long way. You barely need a drop of concealer for both the under eyes.
The best thing I like about this concealer is that it looks natural. It just looks like a part of your own skin.
When mixed with a moisturiser, it makes an excellent tinted moisturiser.
It didn’t break me out.
The pump. Hate it. You need to put in quite a good pressure to dispense the concealer and the pump always dispenses more than the required product. It always results in waste of product.
You would have to really blend it out fast because it dries quickly and might setting in your fine lines.
You definitely need a good amount of under eye cream or else it would be too drying for your under eyes.
If you want a heavy concealing, I feel MAC Studio Finish Concealer would be better pick than this one because you would have to layer pro longwear concealer up and that might look cakey.

This is by far my most trusted and favorite that MAC offers.It is very pigmented,a little goes a long way.It covers up darkness around the eyes really well,never gets cakey and never creases or settles into fine lines around the eyes.It can be either applied by duo fiber brush ,beauty blender or a synthetic brush ;either way it blends very easily and gives a flawless finish . At times during winter months i have also used it in place of foundation since i have oily skin and it sits quite well even that way.It can also work as an eyeshadow base for not very oily lids.
I own the shade NC 25 for the summer months and NC 20 for winter months.A must have product from MAC and highly recommended.
