Stephanie: I used this MAC concealer for years because I am prior MAC artist. Most of my training has been through MAC Cosmetics so it was only natural that I predominately use their products. As I’ve aged I’ve noticed that I haven’t loved this concealer as much as in my twenties. I find it to be creamy and blendable when first applying a new package. The coverage is flawless for those first few weeks. However, the product seems to age fast once opened and become cakey and hard to blend. I find it looks heavy, does not blend well and emphasizes rather than camouflages my fine lines and wrinkles. I’ve applied this product in a variety of ways: brush, fingers, baking with RCMA powder and without powder.

Jenny: I use it as a foundation! I like it because it has good coverage and is heavier for the average person. It gives me flawless skin. I use it in the typical concealer areas then spread it over my face. My mother also uses it as a foundation and has for years. She refuses to use anything else and constantly steals this from my wedding kit. I also like that it comes in green to color correct red tones in the skin.
Conclusion: Jenny and I are going to switch products and review the opposite concealers.
