MAC Studio Finish Concealer Palette SPF 35 Review

MAC’s latest Conceal Collection brings us the Studio Finish Concealer Palette SPF 35 ($17.50), a palette with 3 shades of MAC Studio Finish Concealer.

The Studio Finish Concealer Palette SPF35 comes in a total of 4 colors to suit a variety of skintones:

Light: NW15, NW20, NW25
Medium: NW20, NC30, NW30
Dark: NC35, NW40, NC45
Deep Dark: NW45, NC50, W55

While I really dig the idea of putting different shades in a portable compact, I personally am not a fan of the concealer itself. I have bought the individual pots in both NC20 and NC30 and I found them a little too dry and hard to blend on the undereye area. The concealer does offer really heavy coverage though and the SPF35 is a plus. If you have normal/oily skin, this may be a good buy!
