MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer is a favorite among users because it provides full coverage for all imperfections and discolorations. The thick, creamy formula is highly pigmented so that only a small amount of product is required for adequate coverage. Paula Begoun warns that because it is so thick, it takes some practice to apply just the right amount. It's easy to apply too much, which can leave a cakey finish, especially under the eyes. Some users say that applying the product with a brush solves the problem. Studio Finish contains titanium dioxide for broad-spectrum sun protection and comes in 14 shades. If you prefer a lighter-weight formula, reviewers say Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer (*Est. $70) is a luxurious option.

Paula Begoun says MAC Studio Finish Concealer has a creamy texture that is easy to blend but that it requires some practice to apply just the right amount of product. She says it's excellent for redness, dark circles and other discolorations but too emollient for blemishes.
