All about: M.A.C’s new Matchmaster Concealer



I’ve been forgoing concealer of late, mainly due to the fact that most formulas settle most unattractively into the fine lines under my eyes, and I’m lucky enough (*touching wood*) not to be prone to blemishes. However, since having a decent play with it I can officially declare M.A.C’s new Matchmaster Concealer is my new favourite concealer of the moment.
Available in a generous tweleve shades, it comes housed in a chunky swivel up stick design. MAC uses the same shade intelligence technology in this concealer as they used in their super popular Matchmaster Foundation SPF 15, so I imagine if you like and use that foundation you’ll be beyond happy with the coverage the concealer provides. It uses breakthrough pigment technology to create a fully personalised, subtle satin finish, and Vitamin E is in there to condition as the concealer reduces the appearance of under eye circles, dark spots, discolouration, fine lines and wrinkles.
I’ve found that the formula is pretty thick but with a creamy, emollient feel and a smooth, satin finish. Under drier eyes you’ll find it tugs a little bit during application, but if you take the time to prep well you should have no issue with it, and it is highly customisable as you can go heavier or sheerer depending on what you need.
I’ve also found that it gives excellent coverage and wears really well for a solid 8 to 10 hours without creasing or fading. You just really have to know how to apply it correctly to appreciate it best, but once you have nailed that the world will be your oyster. For me, starting with a heavily moisturised under eye area is key along with a quality brush to thin out the consistency and boom - great finish that last, and lasts…
M.A.C’s new Matchmaster Concealer is $45.00 and available right now.
